    just ssh into the phone and rename the folder
    example: SMBPrefs.app changed to Summerboard.app

    and viola its changed. only works for 3rd party apps tho. the original iphone apps need to be changed through either a plist or sumthing

    I don't know why people always say to change the name of the folder.

    All you need to do is edit the LocalizedApplicationNames.strings.
