Thread: How to locate icons for 3rd party installed apps

    Default How to locate icons for 3rd party installed apps
    Hi, I am currently using the Leaf theme and want to change some of the icons for apps I have recently installed (namely Last.FM and geocaching.com)

    I have browsed the obvious locations for the icons...but can't even find any application directories that appear to be releavnt to these two apps.

    How can I find the location of the app icons for these apps?

    Thanks in advance.

    Great, thanks for that!

    My follow on question is: Rather than changing the icon found at the above location, is it possible to add an icon to the 'theme' folder that contains all the other theme icons, which would be used in preference to the 'icon.png' found in the path above? If so, what would you name it as?

    name it the exact name that you see on your springboard, then throw it in the Icons folder

    no, that's impossible
    I change icons that:

    1 I copy standard icon on disk
    2 If I have favorite icon, I change name to "icon" and format must be ".png"
    3 And I exchange standard icon for my favorite

    I think You understand

    Gabbana: idk what you are talking about but i think you are on a different page than this guy

    if you are making a winterboard theme just find the name of the app on your springboard and put the new icon in a folder named Icons with the same name as the original (must be a png)

    Ok, so I have to name the icon the exact same name (including letter case) as the name of the app? And I find the name of the app by looking in the relevant location that the app resides.

    This has worked for one of my apps, but not for another...and I can't figure out why.

    In this case I have located the app as shown below....and named the icon iCacher.png, and stuck it in the icon folder under the Leaf Theme....so why might it not be working?

    Did you respring? Also, have you checked out the Leaf Theme thread? They have several additional icon packs available for 3rd party apps.

    If you've named the icon.png file EXACTLY as it shows on your springboard (ex; App Store.png - for App Store) and placed it in the icons sub folder under the theme directory, it should work. If it doesn't, something is not correct.
