I've seen a few iPhone games do this, specific icons look a lot better without the gloss or with their own.

Indeed, I've done this on my iPhone game.

I know that there is an option in the .plist in Xcode to turn off the glossy icon. It's something like "Icon already has gloss effect" which essentially tells Xcode not to do it for you.

Not sure if Xcode is involved in the export process or not... (haven't tried it yet)

It's a simple flag I could add.

I now default it to off after noticing that the majority of my apps and games don't use it. You can turn it back on in mobile game settings. If it doesn't seem to apply at first, delete the game from the simulator/device and try again.
