Thread: OS7:Revive

    OS7 BACKUP
    Hey Guys.......right now I'm saving my var/mobile/Dreamboard and OS7 folders as zip files for backup securely in dropbox.
    I'm assuming if my phone ever blows up and I have to start from scratch I can just copy/paste these unzipped folders and I'll retain all my changes correct?
    Also, if there's an easier or more efficient way to backup all the recent changes constantly made please let me know
    Thx again!!

    That should work great, only thing is sometimes the copy process will change ownerships and permissions, so when you copy back your backup back to your device you will probably have to change the ownerships to Mobile and the permissions to Read, Write, Execute and apply hierarchically for the OS7 Folder. Also you should check to make sure your tiles.plist and your Images/settings.plist have been change back. If you dont check those after your copy your backup back to your device, then you might not be able to save your tile order, backgrounds, wallpapers etc.

    If the .plist files are included in the zip would they not save along with the other files?

    they would. he's just saying the permissions might change, which is something u'll need to check later. to be truthful though, I think saving just the images is enough. the plists are fairly easy to straighten up again after a fresh reinstall :]

    Everything should save fine.

    Its when you restore your device and copy your OS7 backups back to your device is when you should do the permission and ownership check on your files

    I checked on previous posts via the search tool for the thread but I'm unable to find a solution... every time after a respring my tiles go back to the default blue and my wallpaper is reset; i've changed ownership to mobile but it still does it.

    my OS7 file (User directory) is Owner is set to mobile as well, as my two individual tile folders, same as the OS7 file under Dreamboard directory.

    I've also set everything to Read, Write & Execute and done "Apply Hierarchically"

    any advice? thanks in advance.

    Its still a permission issue with your tiles.plist and your Images/Settings.plist. Just double check those two files individually. It should be Read, Write, Execute. Sometimes ifile will not apply the permissions to these files when apply hierarchically is done to just the OS7 Folder.

    I did what you and BCS said... "Execute" wasn't selected in my Settings.plist and now it works

    the best way and easiest way is first you find a nice wallpaper for example the batman one I did first I make sure the image is 640x960 then I cut out the image of batman and delete the rest this image is saved as overlay.png and I place it into the images folder of Bcscustoms file and then I set the entire image with background into the wallpapers folder of the os7 theme and that's it. to cut the image out I used photoshop and you do have to have a little patience to get a nice precise cut out

    where was the first version? lol u can make these urself u know :] u just need a picture. bcs has already released his dylib, so you can play around with it and get whatever effect you might like.

    also, mkokolis, have u tried any animated gifs yet? I'm wondering if it's only lagging on mine or if it's universal :P gifs support transparency btw, but only 0% and 100% so... something to keep in mind... xD you could try swfs though, see of that works :P I should test that... lol

    Just tested out the gif animation with a tile I had there doesn't seem to be any lag for me. I'm on a 4s.

    @bcscustom I noticed when I switch from the default theme back to os7 the overlay doesn't appear over top until I respring. Not a much of a problem for me just thought I'd let you know
