App or Script to Clear Springboard Icon Cache?
I'm looking for a way to delete/clear the springboard icon cache to fix the good ol AppIconOverlay, AppIconMask.png, AppIconShadow.png problem.
I know you can just ssh in or use iFile and delete the files myself, but I would love to be able to do it without this. I was thinking just an icon or a script that runs and then resprings.

I have the problem with the icons, and you said you know how to get into the icon cache via SSH. Can you please give me the directory, because no one else will. I have WinSCP, if that matters.

this is old, but yes they do have that...it's called like iWipeCache or Something and its new but i bet nickhesson knows about it cause I think somebody did a writeup about it.....The Next Generation of Phreaks.

you could download iWipe it automatically does it.
I think its better to do it yourself. I mean you will waste memory/battery life to be lazy and not take 5sec to delete the cache every time you get a new theme?
And i tried to look for it on ifunbox(usb ssh) but i couldnt see the folder from there(im on windows). So im not sure if you can do it from sshing from your computer. I did it in iFile.
But the directory is: var/mobile/Library/Caches
SpringBoardIconCache & SpringBoardIconCache-small are the folders you need to deleteOpenFient/Any other gametype: JBone1337

you can do it manually...it's there.....I did it that way before I even knew about iFile (maybe before it had been released?) but like I said I'm pretty sure nick knows how...this post was 2 months ago...The Next Generation of Phreaks.

I first tried to delete cache manually and then downloaded iWipe cache and my icons are still stuck on the default. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

iWipe cache keeps causing my device to respring, any suggestions?

I try to replace AppIconMask.png, AppIconShadow.png and AppIconOverlay.png manually, without using WB. (iOS 3.1.3)
I managed to extract others.artwork file, unpack it with iPhoneShop. Then I replaced original above files with modified ones (from Matte Nano theme), packed artwork file again, and replace the original one with mine modified. I did clear icons cache (deleted all files from var/library/caches/springboardiconcache). Unfortunatly after reboot and respring icons totally messed up (they changed size like they should, but there are messed colours
What did I wrong?

Moreover, here is another way to clear cache files, cookies, temp files and more on your iPhone.
