  • +++ RELEASE! ModMyI iPhone Skinner +++
    Ladies and gentleman, we are finally on the new server, which means, without further adieu. I'd like to go live with our latest project, the iPhone Skinner.



    The app allows you to upload a background, icons, and a dock to the workspace, and simply drag them onto the iPhone demo on the screen. You can also drag and drop the Display Order directly from the app.

    We have a few features and tweaks we will be adding, as well as getting ya'll a guide on how to use it, etc.

    Basically, this creates an .ipb file, which can be put on your iPhone using InstallIPB by timblade. See this thread for more info.

    Make sure you have your icons and your display order matched up. Again, I will have a full guide up tonight or tomorrow on how to use this properly and how to install .ipb files.

    I know, I know, where is the link?

    cash edit:
    Oh yeah forgot to mention.

    This is a free trial, depending on system resource uses this may or may not continue to be a free service and might be moved into a monthly/yearly subscription service for the site. We will monitor the resources this takes and keep it free for as long as possible.

      so far i have encountered this error after updating to 1.0.2:
      "myname.ipb does not seem to support iPhone OS version '1.0.1'!"

      which is funny since i am not at that version im at 1.0.2 and i also renamed the ipb folder inside to that version number...

      any suggestions???

      ok so this worked for me:
      i went back into the ipb folder and re-re-named it back to 1.0.1, even though im running 1.0.2 on the phone. and it worked fine!
      word!

      Any clue as to why im getting permission denied when i try to install the .ipb file? Did the steps exactly as described in the wiki for installing .ipb but when I get to the installipb command including the name of my ipb file, it returns saying permission denied. I'm sorry if this has been previously covered by I have scoured the posts and haven't found it yet. Thanks

      Does anyone have issues when having a full background with no dock and for whatever reason the image is cut horizontally 4/5ths of the way down causing the top image (normally background) and bottom image (normally dock) to be misaligned?

      I would like to post a picture but I can't take a picture of my iPhone and when the skin is on the website it looks fine so I can't get you a screenshot either.

      @xPlod - None of this requires SSH or iPHUC.
      Ok then why i am getting an error at the last step something about Problem starting AFC: -402653150.
      This happens every time on the last step. It gets installed on my phone, but then i can't connect to iTunes at all.

      No dock icons isn't currently supported. I never thought about that possibility before people started trying to do it. This should be fixed soon though.

      I have dock icons, just no dock background. And when I have a full background the bottom portion is misaligned.

      Yes, I am in the same situation. If I get that AFC error how do I put the Services.plist back on, what are the steps that I need to type in in Terminal? Thanks.

      This app is outdated now - it was pre-summerboard. We have plans for a future release of a new app for this, but no ETA yet.
