    Default How To Replace Icons for non Jailbreaks phone Tuturial
    Follow this tuturial by Nate And Janik

    iExplorer Instructions

    Download iExplorer here: iExplorer - Formerly iPhone Explorer, is an iPhone browser for Mac and PC

    Launch iExplorer and connect your iPhone via USB.

    Choose your phone from the source list in iExplorer

    Navigate to the app that you want to change the icon for and click it. Ex: Agenda.app

    In the app resources find the main icon. This can be tricky since these images are crunched for iOS so you can't see the actual image. These usually can be identified by the name. Ex: [email protected], [email protected], etc...

    Rename the existing icon's name. Ex: [email protected] --> [email protected] This is necessary to overwrite the icon.

    Now drag your icon into the app resource window twice. Yes twice. The second time iExplorer will ask if you want to overwrite it. You do.

    P.s let me know if it works

    Dear ReBourne,

    I have been having quite a few challenges doing this. I tried many things - deleting the file, replacing it with the file of my choice, etc. But nothing works man. Im on a mac (OSX 10.7.5). And I'm using iExplorer ver 3.1.1. Can you help? I'd really appreciate the help man. Been trying to customise my iPhone icons but to no avail.

    Regards,
    Bensra
