Shine On You Crazy Icon

If you are trying to remove the shine effect from the icon on your iPhone application, and it is not working, check the order of items in your info.plist file.

I had the “Icon already includes gloss effects” item at the bottom of my plist file with a value of checked, but it would not get rid of the shiny icon on the simulator or on a device. I found that, after I moved the entry up to the top of the plist file, it now gave me an unshiny icon on the simulator and on a new device that I tried the software on.

My main iPod touch that I use for development still has the shiny icon even after deleting the application from the device and powering it off and back on. Anyone have any ideas why this would be?
