    If SSH or WinSCP into your iPhone & cd to the directory

    /var/mobile/Library/WebClips

    In this directory you will have another directory that is a big string of numbers.webclip and so cd into this directory you will see the icon.png that you can change with your own icon.png.

    Let me know if this helps you guys.

    In your case, navigate to the directory would be appropriate. cd is change directory - i'm always in a dos or unix shell, so I'm always cd'in around the filesystem.

    Cheers!!
