    Default How to raname applications by plMars
    Hey everyone. After about 3 hours of trying to figure it out here it is. I renamed my applications.



    Here is how you do it.

    1) Download this file http://polishamericanrallyteam.com/L...ationNames.zip

    2) The file inside is just a regular XML. Modify it to your likings the same way as you would modify DisplayOrder.plist

    3) Upload to /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/English.lproj

    4) Reset your phone.

    Fell free to repost this or even create a tutorial but give me some credit when you do.

    Use the file i left there because iPhone files are binary XMLs. Since i am on windows i had to figure out the format of the regular XML by myself. You can edit the file i uploaded with notepad and upload it to the phone and it will work just fine

    OK! I uploaded the new file so it should be fine soon. You guys can add new key and string but "Maps" has to be spelled with capital "M".

    <key>com.apple.Maps</key>
    <string>whatever</string>

    So what do you do if you do not want any Names?

    Like this:?
    <key>com.apple.Maps</key>
    <string></string>
