I think I didn't explain it correctly, not the forum home page, the logo or icon I see on my iPad when I "save" to home screen.   I tried loading a pic, but a screen shot is too large it says.   
Like if you save say Netflix, you see the N logo, my save shows the forum page, not a logo.

that's a favicon

there's some mods here that will do that for you
off the top of my head I know the Optimus mod has a setting for this (if you want to use a 3rd party through them)

or you can add to your index.template.php
somewhere between the
<head> and </head>

add something like this
<link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/jpg" href="/favicon.jpg"/>
edit it to match the location and file name of your favicon

depending on where you add it you may need to add like this, if you don't add it into an echo already
echo '
<link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/jpg" href="/favicon.jpg"/>';


if you need help making favicons check out favicomatic.com it's pretty nice as they offer just the standard and then also for every possible aspect, you would just add the code that they give you the same way as above into your index.template.php between the head tags and then in an existing echo or create a new echo

Now that I look, my fav is gone since the server move, it used to show in a text or in the browser.  It never showed on the save to home screen though,   I'll try what you said, thanks.  If I can't do it I have an admin from another forum that helps me on occasion.
