Ok thanks. Do you know where I can find the Web Clips icons? (I mean for example /applications/name.app/Icon.png)

The icons used for webclips are stored in a separate folder, one for each link created.
Use iFile and go to
There you will find a number of folders like this :
In each folder you will find 2 files. One is info.plist which describes what the link is. Use
plist editor to view them.
The other file is an icon.png which is the icon used by that webclip shortcut.
Put your own icon here and it will show up after a respring.

I know how to do it. I just did it myself. Im assuming you are in 5.0 or 5.1.1. So all you need is the AppIconMask, AppIconShadow, And AppIconOverlay and put it in MobileIcons.framework in the Folders section of your theme. It themes the app store icons and it also themes the webclips(Well it did it for me)..
You can make your own mask, shadow, and overlay which i did or you can find them anywhere on the internet.
