Thread: How To Hide Apps On 1.1.1 From Springboard

    Default How To Hide Apps On 1.1.1 From Springboard
    I may not be very wise in selecting the correct Forum to post this in... MMI has my mind cluttered with crazy things that when I go to type a freaking post, I can't figure out the correct forum.

    Either way, I just recently jailbroke 111 and I'm needing help with hiding icons I don't want on my springboard. I have three pages to scroll through now and I'm getting sick of it! lol.

    Can anyone give me a hint on how to hide files in the springboard?

    Yep, just modify your M68AP.plist file. It can be found in /system/library/coreservices/springboard.app.

    Cut and paste every icon that you don't want to see and put it under the special array.
    <key>special</key>
    <array>
    <dict>
    <key>displayIdentifier</key>
    <string>com.apple.I WANT TO HIDE THIS HERE</string>
    </dict>

    You'll see some things already in there.
    <dict>
    <key>displayIdentifier</key>
    <string>com.apple.springboard</string>
    </dict>
    <dict>
    <key>displayIdentifier</key>
    <string>com.apple.fieldtest</string>
    </dict>
    <dict>
    <key>displayIdentifier</key>
    <string>com.apple.DemoApp</string>
    </dict>
    <dict>
    <key>displayIdentifier</key>
    <string>com.apple.MALogger</string>
    </dict>
    <dict>
    <key>displayIdentifier</key>
    <string>com.apple.MobileAddressBook</string>
    </dict>

    Like if you wanted to hide stocks, cut it from the section above and paste it here.
    <dict>
    <key>displayIdentifier</key>
    <string>com.apple.Stocks</string>
    </dict>

    To find a program's string, go into the /Applications/ folder and into that program's .app folder. If you look at the info.plist file, it will tell you what the <string> value is. Obviously, this is for non-standard apps.
