Thread: Winterboard Directory

  1. #1
    Default Winterboard Directory
    I want to uninstall Winterboard to hopefully speed up my phone. But there are some things I want to keep, for example: The Metal Gear Solid sounds. 3g Slider. And that's pretty much it.

    I saw someone on here talking about doing it manually through SSH. But how would I do this? What directories do I need to put these files in and what not?

    There should be a sticky regarding the directories and such.

    Well I know how to SSH. That link was kinda helpful but I don't really want to create a theme. I just want to keep the Metal Gear Solid sounds and maybe a modified slider without Winterboard. That guide kinda leads more towards making a theme to use with Winterboard.

    I'm not sure where to put the slider, but I'm pretty sure the sounds go in private/Mobile/Core services/UISounds. Just look for the files in that folder with the same name and make sure you BACK UP THE ORIGINALS. I usually just rename them with DEFAULT at the end.

    For the slider, take a look at /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/TelephonyUI.framework/bottombarknobgray.png (and and
