Fixing the iPhone 3.0 Text Messages icon

Lets go with the assumption you have a jailbroken iPhone, OS version 3.0. You apply some sort of Winterboard theme and you notice (and it’s annoying) that the Messages icon doesn’t change. That blows.

To fix this, you need to have ssh installed and working. I won’t cover that because that’s outside of this … Actual command line commands in italics

    1) SSH to your phone as root (with the alpine password)
    2) cd /Library/Themes
    3) Figure out your theme name and cd into it. In my case it was “cd Bluebird
    4) cd Icons
    5) cp Text.png Messages.png
    6) Respring Springboard (I personally use Bossprefs
    7) Enjoy the fix
