    I originally had an icon for my app and I decided to change it. When I run the app in the AVD via Eclipse my new icon shows correctly in there but when I install the app on my phone the icon is the old icon that I used to have. I had previously installed the app on my phone with the old icon and it seems to have saved on my phone? Is there a way to clear the cache or clear this old icon out of my phone? I'm not sure why it is still using it.

    Thanks for your help! I'm sure this is an easy problem for you all but I can't seem to figure it out.

    Hi,

    Have you tried uninstalling the app from your phone, and then re-installing from Eclipse? That should clear out any old data for the application.

    Uninstall via:
    Settings -> Applications -> Manage Applications -> Select app & uninstall.

    Mark

    Yeah, thank you! When I uninstalled/installed the app through my phone manually (not through Eclipse) it didn't work but when i uninstalled/reinstalled it through Eclipse it worked. Very weird. Thanks.
