If you have root, you cold probably make a shortcut using a root explorer.

assuming you have root and root explorer installed,
open root explorer and navigate to system/app/ your app
long press on your app and a menu will come up
scroll down to "create shortcut" and click it

you all done now there should be a shortcut of your app on the home screen.
i tried it, it works.
