    Default [Help] Modify other.artwork in fw 3.0 without winterboard
    Hello,
    I'd like to remove the glossy overlay from the icons (see screenshot). I know I have to modify other.artwork png file. I have installed firmware 3.0: I could not find a way to extract pngs from other.artwork in order to modify them. Any help will be appreciated!
    Note: please, I want to achieve the result without winterboard.

    Thanx in advance!

    Editing iPhone artwork files - ModMyi - Wiki
    check that link....

    I know it says up to 2.2 but it might still extract... can you report back?
    im still trying to figure out how to get that going in windows.

    or look up an app called "iPhoneShop" from someone off planet-iphones

    To remove dock labels you have to rename them as blank in the LocalizedApplicationNames.strings file located in System/library/coreservices/springboard.app/yourlanguage.lproj
    Obviously yourlanguage means english / spanish / italian / germa etc ..

    Hi dalidah!

    i dont know if you find a way to decompress artwork files..
    but i just download form a post the iPhoneShop-1.3.jar that let me compress/decompress.

    i you cant find it on the forum send me a pm.

    I cant find the line to modify in LocalizedApplicationNames.strings
    i read somewhere that this value is in springboard.app/info.plist

    "<key>DockedIconLabelStyle</key>
    <string>color: transparent</string>"

    but doesn't work for me either

    This worked for 4 out of my 5 dock applications. I found the springboard.app no problem, then the LocalizedApplicationNames.strings file. Converted it using the Terminal command "plutil -convert xml1 Localizable.strings", then removed all references to "Safari", "Text", "Phone", "Mail", and "iPod". For all but the iPod, the labels disappeared. I went into the info.app for Mediaplayer.app and took a look at the Localizable.strings there, too... but still no luck.

    I'd really rather not do this with Winterboard - it sucks my battery too quickly. Any other suggestions? I tried BossPaper - but no luck there either.

    Pulling my hair out here,

    Chris

    You have to go to info.plist and convert it to XML using the terminal command and you'll find UIRoleDisplay and <string>iPod</string>
    delete the iPod part and you have your dock.

    Hi wernerc !

    whats wrong with bosspapaer?

    that was my final solution! no more hacking files!
    just install boss paper, turn on the "no dockin labels" switch!
    ann voila!

    Did you ever figure out a way to edit/remove all the labels without a program? I can get most of the labels removed by editing the individual Info.plist files, but there are a few that I am unable to remove. I would also like to not use winterboard. Please let me know if you have figured out a way. Thanks.
