I want to change an icon for one of my apps - how do I do it?


Distinguished Member
I don't want to apply an app icon pack, I just want to change one icon, and it's for a proper App Store app as opposed to a third party app...

But I can't figure out which file I want to change!


Now, I want to change it as it looks rubbish. I'd like to change it to something like this;

which is the Google Docs icon - which is fitting as the MiGhtyDOCS app is for viewing Google Docs files...

But, I don't know which file to replace...

When I go into the phone root using iPhoneBrowser, I have no trouble locating the app folder (root>user>applications>folder for MiGhtyDOCS), and in it are two files that seems to be related: in the main folder is "iTunesArtwork" of a non-descript file type, and then within that tree is another folder called "MiGhtyDocs.app" and inside that is a file called "icon_small.png"

Both have the same picture in them, which is the icon seen on my screen grab above. The "icon_small.png" file is 57x57, and the "iTunesArtwork" file, when dragged into Paint Shop Pro, is the same image but 512x512. Both are square and not rounded corners like on the springboard...

Which do I change, or do I change both, and at what size, and if I do all this, will it just revert everytime that app updates, or a sync is made with iTunes?
