    Installing sys-tweak

    You can make custom icons for games using sys-tweak
    Make sure download the latest version of sys-tweak.nsp copy and rename it:
    Code:
    atmosphere/contents/00FF747765616BFF/exefs.nsp
    Create a flags folder with an empty boot2.flag file in:
    Code:
    atmosphere/contents/00FF747765616BFF/flags/boot2.flag
    Optionally create a toolbox.json in:
    Code:
    atmosphere/contents/00FF747765616BFF/toolbox.json
    To enable/disable sys-tweak from sysmodules overlay, toolbox.json should be:
    Code:
    {
      "name": "sys-tweak",
      "tid": "00FF747765616BFF",
      "requires_reboot": true
    }
    

    Creating custom icons

    Once sys-tweak is set, reload your CFW. Now you can customize your game icons by copy a 256x256 jpg image no bigger than 128K or you will get a queston mark instead.
    The icon only accept jpg format not interlaced, copy it to your title folder ID, for example Resident Evil 4:
    Code:
    atmosphere/contents/010099A00BC1E000/icon.jpg

    Editing game names

    You also can change the title name, author and version, just place a config.ini file in the same folder as your icon.jpg, the file structure is:
    Code:
    [override_nacp]
    name=my custom title name game
    author=someone
    display_version=X.X.X
    Note: If no config.ini is present it defaults to original title.

    Thanks to @p-sam for creating sys-tweak, and up-side-down Claude von Riegan that motivated me to change incon in FE: Three Houses :rofl2:

    might have to attempt some icons I guess I'll have to get sys-tweek but i can't build it because I'm literally too stupid,
    but I've thrown these together quickly first 2 are just cut & paste jobs, 3rd is just the bandcamp album art

    Seeing as how the OP mentions nothing of SXOS, and besides the fact that SXOS isn't compatible with a lot of homebrew, it's not very likely to work.
