Does anyone knows how to mask the application name in 1.1?
This feature was available in 1.02 by editing one of the files.
Is this still possible? Can anyone explain how?

Just change the name of the .app in /Applications

You can find the LocalizedApplicationNames.strings inside the SpringBoard.app in /System/Library/CoreServices/, download the files and cd to the local version of SpringBoard.app content and type the following command:
plutil -convert xml1 LocalizedApplicationNames.strings
You can then edit the xml file using text editor, same way with version 1.0.2. Once finished type the following command:
plutil -convert binary1 LocalizedApplicationNames.strings
Upload replacing the original file. Dont forget to backup.
