Thread: Change App Name On Springboard?

    Exclamation Change App Name On Springboard?
    Hi all, I was hoping someone could help me.

    I've successfully built a Winterboard theme and all works fine, but I was hoping to be able to rename some of the apps on the springboard once the theme is applied. For example rename "Calendar" to "iCal."

    Does anyone know where I should put the LocalizedApplicationNames.strings file in order to change the app names in the theme, or if this is indeed possible at all.

    Thanks for the help!

    I used to use an app from Cydia called Rename. I haven't used it in a while so I am not sure which firmwares it is compatible with now. It was pretty cool. It let you know what the original name was if you ever decided to want to revert to the stock name of the app.

    Unfortunately whilst it does change the app's name, you still have to do it manually.
    What I wanted was like a code or something that would change the name of the app once the theme had been installed via Winterboard, and then the app would resume its original name once the theme had been uninstalled again.

    Anyone have any ideas?
