A customer reported that when they pushed thier app to a device, Developer did not pick up the appicon.png. I have verified this with my own test project.

How to reporduce.

Create a project, alter the appicon.png in the iphone directory under Resources. Push app to a device. The icon will either be white or the original icon.

    The CFBundleIconFile and CFBundleIconFiles keys in the build/iphone/Info.plist* file are set to default_app_logo.png and not to appicon.png**, which is causing this issue I believe.

    Additionally, even if you change the "Application Icon" setting for your project in Titanium Developer, the Info.plist doesn't update with this new setting.

    As a workaround I either rename the appicon.png to default_app_logo.png or edit the Info.plist file appropriately.

  4. Stephen Tramer 2011-12-22 Spot-checked against iPad 2 iOS 5.0.1, installed via SDK and Studio Could not reproduce, meaning it was fixed sometime in history.
  5. Thomas Huelbert 2012-02-09 worked in 1.8.1/1.8.2
