    My Ipad 2 is Jailbroken.

    I am playing around with my own cover art and want to copy over ti to the location where the Ipad stores both the Kindle Cover art and the E-Books cover art. What are the specific locations where the graphics are kept. They don't appear to be int the individual app folders and my Ipad has >5,000 jpg files, so it could take ma a while to find them.

    Thanks

    If I open the book, it shows the new cover, but the old (must be cached somewhere) cover still shows up in as the book cover withing the e-books app.
