Thread: Problem Changing Icons

  1. #1
    Default Problem Changing Icons
    I have tried going into the icon folder using diskaid to make sure the icons have been named correctly and they are however winterboard does not replace some of them. Bellow you can see what i mean, most of the icons have been replaced but some of them haven't. Im using the glaskart theme however i have had the same problem with every other theme ive tried using. Im running iOS 4.0.1 on an iphone 3GS.

    Download the Forum Icons of Glasklart from your iPhone to your computer and take a look inside the Icons directory. There you will find all icons and how they are named in the theme.

    Best way is to create an own theme directory with the Icons directory in it where you put in all the missing icons with the correct name (DisplayName.png). My themes has the name "Missing Icons.theme" for example. That is to make sure that the icons don't get deleted when an update of Glasklart comes out.

    I don't mean the icons here on the forum. It's a theme folder on your iPhone which is called Glasklart Forum Icons.theme

    Okay.. now use your Explorer and look inside the Icons-folder. You will see tons of icons. Find the ones that are not replaced (or others you would like use instead) and copy them outside into a different folder.

    Next step go to your Themes folder on your iPhone and create a new folder named Glasklart Missing Icons.theme (or whatever name you want to give it). Go inside this folder and create one more named Icons. Put all the icons you have in your new folder on your desktop into this Icons folder.

    The icons has to have the following name structure: DisplayName.png for example the one for photos has to be Photos.png. Be careful because it's case sensitive so photos.png won't work.

    After finishing these steps go to Winterboard and manage your themes. You will see your new Theme at the top of the themes list. Activate it and close Winterboard. Your iPhone will automatically respring and voila the icons are changed.

    You can also use this way for apps where Glasklart has no icon for. Find one that fits the app. Put it inside your own Missing Icons theme. Rename the file. Respring.

    You see me completely clueless now. Sorry It cannot be Glasklart that makes problems because I also use Glaklart together with my Own Icons theme and it works like a charm.
