Grooveshark for iPhone: Icon Fix


Don’t know about you, but the slightly offset icon for Grooveshark 1.x on the iPhone bugged me (yes, I really am that anal ;-), so I popped it into my image editor and tried to make it look a bit more like the stock iPhone icons by overlaying the glossy “button” look and adjusting the size to match the other icons I found.

Just click on the icon above, then save it to your desktop (or wherever) as Icon.png, then do the following:

  1. Connect to your iPhone via SSH, or use iPhoneBrowser (Windows).
  2. Navigate to the /Applications/Grooveshark.app folder.
  3. Replace Icon.png with the icon you downloaded above.
  4. Respring/reboot your iPhone, and when the Springboard comes back up, you should see the new icon. =)

One caveat: You’ll have to replace this icon using the steps above every time you get a Grooveshark update from Cydia/Rock/wherever until they fix the icon themselves, but it should work fine between updates.

Let me know if this works for you in the comments. Thanks!

(BTW, in case you haven’t installed Grooveshark yet, here’s a link to their information page: http://mobile.grooveshark.com/phones/iphone)
