Change bookmark icons on homescreen?
Original iPad on 4.3.2 jailbroken. I have winterboard, and I went into the stash/themes/ folder and created a .theme folder, within it an "icons" folder, within that a .png of an icon named after the bookmarks name. Applied the theme but it didn't change.
Is there a way to change the icons of the bookmarks?

Well, I happen to have just learned that springboard bookmarks (the ones you create with Safari) are in this folder: private/var/mobile/Library/WebClips. Each bookmark has it's own folder. And, within each folder, is the .png for the icon. Maybe if you put the new icon there it'll change it? Of course, you'd have to name it exactly the same as the original .png, else the iPad won't "find" it, but I don't see why it wouldn't work.
On another note, there's an app in the Apple Store called "Touch Icon Creator" ($.99 USD) that will allow you to use your own images to create nice icons for your bookmarks. I usually find the logo for the web site and use that as the image. Ends up that sometimes I can't tell which is a bookmark and which is a genuine App Store icon. Of course, YMMV.
Hope this helps - or comes close to answering your question.

Yes, but this isn't quite right. You need to get the right folder names for the apps, and the icons need a particular name. Honestly, the best way to go about working this out easily is to download a good theme from Cydia and look into it's folder structure to work it out.

Also, if you don't mind, I'll move this thread into the hacking section as it is jailbreak / theme related. OK?

Winter board themes are more complicated than just folder in a folder.
New pics have to be the same size, same filename, right folder, right bundle, blah... Blah.....
Check out my winterboard tutorial linked in my signature.
It quite awesome.
I have been wondering this.... Thanks for the tip. Love this forum!
