    Default yup
    Yes..... In every app folder there is an info.plist. Open the plist and u will see display order name then under that you will see the name of the app change that to what ever you like then replace the plist and thats all..... Hope this helps

    lol, it's so easy. You need Pledit to open up those .plist files if you're on Windows, or Property List Editor if on Macintosh. They're both free. Go into your app folder open up that Info.plist using one of those 2 converters, here's what it will look like:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    <key>CFBundleDevelopmentRegion</key>
    <string>en</string>
    <key>CFBundleDisplayName</key>
    <string>NAME_OF_THE_APP</string>
    <key>CFBundleExecutable</key>
    <string>DO_NOT_TOUCH</string>
    <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key>
    <string>...</string>
    <key>CFBundleInfoDictionaryVersion</key>
    <string>6.0</string>
    <key>CFBundleName</key>
    <string>...</string>
    <key>CFBundlePackageType</key>
    <string>APPL</string>
    <key>CFBundleSignature</key>
    <string>????</string>
    <key>CFBundleVersion</key>
    <string>1.0</string>
    <key>LSRequiresIPhoneOS</key>
    <true/>
    <key>MMAppID</key>
    <string>...</string>
    <key>UIStatusBarHidden</key>
    <true/>
    </dict>
    </plist>

    and now you wanna change that NAME_OF_THE_APP if you do not see that row in your Info.plist you can just copy and paste it, and make sure you place it under the first row! good luck buddy

    @n1gaa. Hey, slight topic change. Does the position position in the plist have anything to do with 'where or on what SB page' the app is located? I've been looking for someway to save/restore the app locations after an iPhone complete upgrade/restore.

    The order of the icons on SpringBoard is stored in /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist under the key iconState.

    i did not really get what you mean. that post was for changing the name of a 3rd party app name change. Since iPhone doesn't come with that XBOX thingy. but yeah if you wanna change the names of apps that come with iPhone, like Text, Maps, YouTube etc you can see post #13. And if you're using a different language or something there should be many folders. Not really sure if that location on #13 was right. It's been a while since i did those kinda stuff. lemme see. I'm SSHing right now.


    Ohh I get what you mean. That location or whatever doesn't have anything to do with the name change...
