    Default Messed up my preferences.app
    Hey all,

    I just bought myself the iPad and started some SSHing. I was messing around with the default strings in the preferences.app, adding my name and stuff like that. I rebooted my device to find that even though I'm connected to the Internet, wifi bars don't appear in the upper left hand corner. Also, the strings I edited all failed, causing them to say things like PASSCODE_ENABLED. I can post pictures if needed as well as the .plists I edited.

    Thanks,
    iPad user

    I edited 2 plist files,

    /private/var/stash/Applications.MqxFZi/Preferences.app/English.lproj/Passcode Lock.strings

    I added text to the area that reads ADDED BY iPad User

    I also went into this file:

    /private/var/stash/Applications.MqxFZi/Preferences.app/_CodeSignature/CodeResources

    I changed:

    </dict>
    <key>^Resources/English\.lproj/</key>
    <dict>
    <key>optional</key>
    <true/>
    <key>weight</key>
    <real>20</real>
    </dict>
    <key>^version.plist$</key>
    <true/>

    to:

    </dict>
    <key>^Resources/English\.lproj/</key>
    <dict>
    <key>optional</key>
    <true/>
    <key>weight</key>
    <real>5</real>
    </dict>
    <key>^version.plist$</key>
    <true/>

    and back again.

    Sorry for the long post.

    [edit]

    Wifi signal bars are back, now the text is just messed up.

    Passcode Lock screen reads

    PASSCODE_ON

    CHANGE_PASSCODE

    PASSCODE_REQ ALWAYS_SHORT >

    ENABLE_PICTURE_FRAME [on/off]

    WIPE_DEVICE [on/off]

    WIPE_DEVICE_TEXT_IPAD
