Thread: Renaming Apps

    Default Renaming Apps
    There is an app i would like to rename. Its The Weather Channel app, free version. It used to be called TWC, then after the update to the app it is now called standard. I would like to change that back to TWC. Thanks.

    There is an app in Cydia called "Rename" that will accomplish this. I am not certain if it works for 3.0 yet. You may want to check it out.

    I had the same issue with TWC. Install teh iFoneguide repo on Cydia (go to the repositories section). Then you can install Rename. You may have to respring or reboot your iPhone for Rename to show up. Once it does, you can change the app name to anything you want.

    Confirmed working on 3.0 on a 3GS.

    On the front page of Cydia, scroll down to "More Package Sources" you'll find it there.
