Thread: Icon text

  1. #1
    Default Icon text
    Under 1.0.2 I changed up the .plist I believe to remove the text under "phone, mail, etc." but leave the text under the upper icons.

    Under 1.1.1 how do I go about this? is it controlled under m68ap.plist now? Do I just remove "displayIdentifier" from "key" under the apps I don't want to have text?

    TIA

    umm.. Do you have summerboard? If so.. I think there is a hide dock labels or something.

    in summerboard you can take away the labels
    MyPhone is better than yours

    I like to do it manually as I don't really want summerboard.

    Easiest manual method is to simply rename the apps using only spaces: " .app", " .app" and so forth. Worked fine for me. To put more than one space, you can use Shift-Space (which uses a different ascii character assignment)

    It used to be LocalizedApplicationNames.strings but it could be the m68ap.plist that you are talking about, but either way all you need to do is delete the words from it. Delete the phone, text, etc and leave everything else alone.

    I'm stuck trying to figure this out myself, except that I want to mask the app. names instead of getting rid of them.

    Still no luck, plus I want a way to do it manually as well. I don't really want to have summerboard installed.

    I was playing around last night and found that if I delete "displayIdentifier" from the "key" field in m68ap.plist the entire icon and it's text goes away. Leaving you with a blank spot and no access to that function.

    Ok, I made the jump to 1.1.1. now. The m68ap.plist is the new dislpayorder.plist. You don't want to delete anything from that because it will remove the app itself from the springboard as you've experienced. You want to edit the LocalizedApplicationNames.strings which can be found under /system/library/coreservices/springboard/english

    Take that and remove the names.

    Quick question, how do I make that .strings file usable? When I pull it from the phone it's just garbage from what I can tell.

    That works on the built-in programs, but what about the third party ones?

    Change the extension from .strings to .plist to open it. Change it back to .strings before you put it back on your phone.

    You have to add the third-party programs to it, which depending on the number or apps you have, can take a while. That's why I love that summerboard does it automatically. To get the strings for the third party apps to add to it look in each third party apps folder for the info.plist.

    I gave that a try but the file is still the same inside. I'm on XP using notepad. I tried searching for the text "phone" and removing that, but it made everything on the screen come up as it's .app name. ie. MobileCal, etc.

    Can someone upload a stock converted file? There is one in the Downloads section for 1.0.2, but not 1.1.1.
