Thread: Some Icons not changing

  1. #1
    Default Some Icons not changing
    Ive noticed that with pretty my all my themes scince ive gone to 3.0 JB that not all of my icons change

    i got the sms to finally work by SSH into it and change it to messages vs text

    anyone know how to get the weather icon to change? , possibly other stuff like
    clock
    fandango
    skype
    PDAnet


    any suggestions would be great, thanks

    First of all, go to the icons folder of the theme you're using and make sure there are actual icons made for the apps you're missing themed icons for. It's impossible for theme makers to create icons for all apps, so this should be your first step.

    Second, make sure the icon name matches the label underneath the icon on your Springboard. For Example, my Doom app is labeled as Resurrection. If the icon was named Doom.png it will not work and should be renamed Resurrection.png. (I believe it's case sensitive but correct me if I'm wrong) Sometimes app updates change the label name which will also change the icon compatibility with the theme. So you must manually rename it with SSH.

    If you're using Weather Icon and LiveClock, those apps change the icons giving them custom values depending on time and weather. So if you don't have a matching theme for those two, then they will stand out. Fortunately, the latest update of Weather Icon allows you to show the temperature as a badge instead of changing the icon. So you can use the weather icon that matches your theme. You can change that in Weather Icon settings.

    Hope that helps.

    ssh would work, or you can also use iFile and navigate
    /var/stash/Themes.xxxxxx/NAMEOFTHEME/Icons
    to check the icons
    download iFile from Cydia or Rock...its shareware...


    also if its only App Store apps that aren't changing and you're on 3.1.2 then see if there is an AppIconMask, AppIconOverlay, or AppIconShadow in the UIImages folder of the theme ......if there is then you may need to clear your icon cache.....just tell me if you need instructions on this...
