    Default Adding an app to a theme
    I am running a theme right now, it is a mix of two themes. I am using icons from two themes and made it one. Neither theme had icons for Beejive. So when I SSH to the phone using WinSCP and go under that theme there is no folder for Beejive. I have tried to create a folder in that theme and add my icon just like how other apps are setup. I called the folder com.BeejiveIM.BeejiveIM and still when I use my theme the icon I have that I want to use with Beejive will not change on the phone. Any steps on how to add an app to a theme?

    I'm no expert on beejive but are you sure that's the correct folder name and all the capitalization/lowercase letters are correct? Try downloading a theme with the beejive icon, and copy the format of it.

    I don't know what theme has it either lol, sorry. Try some popular ones that don't have autocreate icons. Or you could try creating an Icons folder on the main page of the theme then name your icon beejive.png or whatever the name shows on your springboard. Make sure you capitalize the right letters.

    Edit: Icons folder the I i can't remember if that's capitalized or not.

    Well I've google searched and failed to find exact details on it. Like I said, try the icons folder option I recommended or try downloading a few themes to see what the format looks like.

    On the theme I have, for example for facebook here is the format ---> com.facebook.Facebook So I assume for Beejive its ---> com.beejiveIM.BeejiveIM and I have tried beejive without the IM part and all and still the Icon wont update.

    Well it isn't always the same format for every app. Have you tried the icons folder way?

    Make a folder called "Icons" in the theme folder (for example im using iNitsua so use iPhone Explorer for PC and download AFC2ADD on your phone then go root folder, library, themes, open the iNitsua folder and make a folder in there called "Icons") Then what you want to do is on your phone check what the writing on your SB says under said app, name the icon you want to use exactly that, and place said icon in the "Icons" folder.

    Then get the icon you want to use, name it the exact same as what the app is called on your homepage (case sensative) and put it in that folder (must be a .png)
