    If you go into cydia -> Manage -> Packages -> NowListening -> FileSystem Content Then you will be shown a list of all the files installed with the tweak, and their location, so have a look on here, figure out which image it is that you want to change, and then just swap them over

    I looked at this, the tweak itself doesn't have any icons it looks like it is calling on all original iPhone content. I think the tweak is calling on the "[email protected]" contained within the music app. I haven't had a chance to test this but try creating if you haven't already a Bundle named "com.apple.mobileipod" This goes in ur Bundle folder under your theme if you are running Winterboard

    E.g

    YourTheme/Bundles/com.apple.mobileipod and place the modded icon in there.

    It's 58x58px. Just my thoughts. See how you go

    Actually I don't think my first reply is correct either. Its using a 40x40 music icon so the above might not work.

    UPDATE: It is calling on Apple's native 58x58 image as described above. Theme and bundle the image as I have mentioned and this should then display your themed image when your device is resprung assuming ur using WinterBoard.

    Worked for me.

    Name it "[email protected]" and put it on the bundle as also described.

    Let me know if it works. Make sure your main music icon "[email protected]" is also themed in this bundle as it appears it can call on the 118x120 image too.

    I managed to change it, but now it has the white border around the icon blah

    Also, it does not seem to invoke once I respring...is there a cache the needs to be deleted somewhere?

    Can you put a screenshot up? There is this file "[email protected]" in the "MobileIcons" framework which may be used in the Banner displayed. Just guessing here. it's 40x40 so I'm pretty sure it is.

    I didn't have to clear any caches and it would display different icons in the Now Listening banner.

    If you have used a different shaped icon for it to display in the Banner the mask file might not be correctly shaped for your themed icon hence the white border???

    Just my thoughts tho

    Hey I got this reply back from the dev of the NowListening tweak doesn't really help much and basically sums up what I had managed to decipher anyway.

    Hi,

    I'm sorry, I don't even know which icon is called ... I give to the banner the bundle ID of the app and then the iOS manage the icon by itself.
    So maybe it's a native icon with the right dimensions, maybe iOS resize the icon ...

    Replace all icons to see
