    Thank you for this vid!! I really needed something like this. I got a headache every time I wanted to look for an app with iPhonebrowser. They should really add a search feature to that program..

    BTW, is there a program to easily arrange the icons on your springboard? Doing it manually on the springboard takes way too long and sometimes my phone crashes. I have way too many apps.. drag and drop will take too long. Already tried Categories, didn't like it much. I want all the icons on the springboard. Please let me know, thanks.
    Your Welcome.

    I have not found an easy way to arrange the icons yet but when I find it I will make a video of it. I tried the categories thing too hated it makes my phone too slow. I have over 115 apps on my phone its a pain specially when I installed Supreme Preferences it rearranged them in alphabetical order I was pissed.

    Using Photoshop Elements (7):

    make a new image (60 x 60 pixels), transparent, OK.
    Drag the original icon AND the overlay into the bottom of your Photoshop Elements (PE) project.
    You will now have a blanc (transparent) icon, the original icon and the overlay on the bottom.
    Doubleclick the original icon -> CTRL-A, CTRL-C
    Doubleclick the blanc icon -> CTRL-V
    Doubleclick the overlay icon -> CTRL-A, CTRL-V
    Doubleclick the blanc icon which contains the original icon -> CTRL-V
    Now select on the right the original icon-overlay.
    Select the eraser and clean up the edges.
    Save your image as .png

    You might have to adjust the size of the original icon.

    Try it and use a bit of your own imagination to get the icons done.
    How to adjust the size of the original icon,thx

    This was as close as I could get. let me know how you like it. I totally understand about the icon color thing. I actually stripped the center out of the original Icy icon, changed the color, and made new icons for a few apps (I really like the look of the Icy icon, so it works for me )

    If they are not done already when I get off of work tomorrow, i will knock them out for you. It's too late tonight, sorry. By the way, I don't know what version icon pack you are using, but I know that iErase is in the latest update. Racer was done a page or two ago, and I just did one for iTypeFastR, but it's not the 3.0 one (if it matters) but I will make the 3.0 one as well.

    Yes you are right. I hate the search function here. I can post something, and then search for it, and it won't find it. As for the icons...not a problem, but you know the drill...we need a screen shot please

    Show us some effort : post the original icons or a screenshot of the programs/games you need. We aren't going to search for the icons ourselves.

    Its got nothing to do with the bookmarks. If you place a bookmark (known as a webclip) in the home screen and call it "messages" it will have the same icon as your messages app.

    Navigate to your themes on the iphone (using iphone browser or SSH)and drop your desired icon into the icons folder.

    E.G. if you look at the piccy below under the calendar icon you will see one for my own website 360247 (a gaming site). All i do was save the bookmark to the home screen and call the bookmark "360247". Now because there was an icon in the themes/icons folder call "360247" it picked up that icon for the home screen.



    Hope all that makes sense.

    I've been using Orbz ever since it came out on Cydia, and due to lack of updates, I luckily wound up here! I'm a bit of a noob though to the whole system the compilers here have created... and I had a question or two if you don't mind.

    I have the most recent 1.6 icon pack compilation, but I know for a fact that I've seen a mountain of icons posted over the 100s of pages. However some of the icons I have seen completed never ended up in any of the recent compilations, despite being made between 1.4 and 1.6 (Examples are Star Defense and Doom: Resurrection)

    So I guess my question is, do H0CKEY/Joosty/H1hum only compile select icons, or is there such a massive amount that some just get overlooked? (Not raging, just curious)

    My second question is, has anyone considered a more convenient way of managing all of the icons? Perhaps a simple website with a simple gallery and upload/download option. I realize this is easier said than done and requires money, but just a thought, since this forum technique is a bit messy and daunting to newcomers (especially when it comes to looking to see if an icon has been previously created already)
