SICC – Sense Icon Cache Clearer
HTC Sense, also known as Manila, takes up some cache to make the icon graphics showing up faster. It’s pretty handy, but it has disadvantage: there is no option to clear the cache when you want to change all icons. XDA member iridium21 made an application to clear the cache automatically, so you don’t have to use a file explorer. The application is very small, and as far as we know, it works for any device with HTC Sense.

So, I was looking for an app that did this automatically – I couldn’t find one So, I’ve written one that deletes the Sense icon cache and then gives you the option of restarting your phone.
You can find more information and a download link in the application thread.
