    Exclamation Stock look with third party applications installed on 1.1.1
    I modified my Springboard v1.1.1 so it would look stock with third party applications installed. Feel free to use my mod.

    Instructions:
    1. Unzip StockSpring01.zip and copy [space].app, [spacespace].app and [spacespacespace].app to /Applications
    2. Set permission 755 to embark in all three folders
    3. Copy M68AP.plist to /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app

    EDIT: Used transparent pngs and fixed application names so you can use it on non black background.
    EDIT2: Fixed zip file for Mac users and modified display identifier of the new Installer.app - To place it in the first position on the second page.

    Good work!

    Thats the look I wanted.

    Only prob is that if you use summerboard to swap themes ( ones with a wallpaper thats not just black ) you get three black squares where the blank apps are.

    Is there such a thing as a transparent png ???????

    Yes, you can make transparent png, unfortunatelly applications name would show. I used black boxes just to cover the text. I'll try to figure out something.

    lol - you beat me to it.

    I just created a transparent png icon for each blank app - and yeah , I forgot the app name would show :-)

    I notice rsbt will change the number of icons on the pages ( it screws my phone though in CCustomize 1.13 ) , maybe whatever file that alters to limit it to 13 icons on the first springboard page could be a way of getting the same look?

    Or - If really wanting to run a summerboard theme as well , I could just turn off the icon labels in summerboard.
    I'm one of those strange people though who seem to prefer the stock theme though :-) So probably just stick with it.

    Hey you did the work :-)

    You also gave me a new feature I was looking for by accident - your included M68AP.plist file has the international key set to = 1 , now I can choose a UK keyboard and have all my contacts numbers correctly shown - it may also have fixed the incoming caller number matching prob we have in the UK !!!!

    To fix caller ID matching you have to use patched appsupport. Get it here: http://iphone.fiveforty.net/wiki/index.php/AppSupport

    This site seems to be down, I got the zip file you uppped earlier can this be used to fix caller ID on as 1.0.2 phone or is it strictly for 1.1.1

    Thanks

    Select the file to change and choose "Get Info" from the "File" menu. Under "Permissions," enter the appropriate chmod number in the field labeled "Octal."

    Vger - thanks for a great little app.

    Im getting a 1.1.2 UK iphone for xmas and wanted to just ask a quick question (ive tried to read up on this through the forums but cant find an answer)

    I was wondering, Im wanting to use this app without summerboard installed at all.. Will i still be able to slide between two pages of iphone applications?? I noticed on your attached screenshots that you have two screens but no "SMBPrefs" installed so im hoping so. In which case, can I use your StockSpring01.zip files without the blank.apps so i can have a full page of 16 icons, then some extras on the 2nd page??

    I hope this all makes sense. (Im basically after a way that i can slidebetween 2 pages of apps without Summerboard really, and without iLauncher or anything)

    Thanks a lot for your help, I appreciate your time

    Rich..

    Actually you don't need my mod if you wish to have all 16 icons on the first page. Springboard page scrolling is already built-in (since v.1.1.1).

    i like the stock look as well but there is a better way to get it without messing around with the icon png's. All you have to do is set the appreveal option to on and then youll be able to double tap the icon to reveal it or hide it on the springboard without going to customize to hide it.

    Thank you for the tip. The only problem I see is, you have to actually modify two more files - com.apple.springboard.plist (to enable appreveal) & mobile store's plist.info (to prevent it from hiding). But I guess it's a better way, since blank applications probably don't start when you hide them. I will try it... Thanks.

    why not use the sbrevealable option..? like steve used in his demo, apps are hidden until double tapped but still take up space on springboard... i use it on things like installer to keep my iphone looking stock =]
