    Default (OS X) THE IDIOTS GUIDE to **CUSTOMIZE** on 1.1.3 and 1.1.4
    FOR MAC


    ***Subnote ***To eliminate earlier rumors about Ziphone compatibility I did a complete restore on my iPhone to 1.1.4 and broke it open with ziphone's latest version. Works flawlessly.***


    Ok, no matter how many times it has been said how to make it work, people still screw it up. If you do it exactly like this, IT WILL WORK FLAWLESSLY.

    (1). Make sure you have BSD and SSH installed on your phone. If you have one, you have the other ....and you likely already have this since it is the first thing most people install when they jailbreak and start using installer.

    (2). Download Skylar's hacked version of customize here and unzip it: http://www.modmyi.com/forums/attachm...1&d=1204904096

    (3). Open Transmit or Cyberduck and log in to your iphone using SSH. (name:ROOT pass:ALPINE) To find out what your IP number is for your phone, simply go into your phone settings>wifi>*select your router using the blue arrow*- it will show you your IP addy..... write that down. Also while you are in settings, set your autolock to NEVER.

    (4). Now that you are logged in through SSH using Cyberduck or Transmit, go to /APPLICATIONS and click the arrow to expand the applications folder.

    (5). Locate the customize application on your HD and drag it inside the iphone applications folder in SSH.

    (6). Now, open your terminal application on your MAC. Copy this and paste it into the terminal: ssh -l root 192.168.1.* replace the numbers (and the *) with your IP that you wrote down earlier and used to log into SSH with. You will be asked for your user name and password. They are the same as was told you to before in step 3.

    Once you are logged into the phone in terminal, (if you do not get an error you are logged in) simply copy and paste the following:

    /bin/chmod -R 755 /Applications/Customize.app

    HIT ENTER

    /bin/chmod +s /Applications/Customize.app/Customize

    HIT ENTER

    (7). Close the terminal window, you are done. Try to open Customize, it will likely crash on the first open. Now completely turn your phone off by holding the top key until you get the "slide to turn off" option and do so.

    (8). Turn your phone back on. Try to open customize again. It might crash on the first try, but should pick up on the next try.

    Congrats, you now have a fully working version of Customize. Go get some goodies from the installer. You can install directly from the installer without having to move anything you downloaded into other folders or chmod anything. It will work FLAWLESSLY.

    IT's GRAVY. Heck IMO it is easier than installer. (a) because it is just cut and paste and you are done and (b) because when you are done you'll know how to do it and everything from that point forward will be easier for you. (c) because this is the only way I have ever seen it work FLAWLESSLY. All the other ways have a glitch, hitch, or a just a B**tch

    I already had it edited above. Skylar changed the URL for some reason.

    That's about the only thing I have not tried because I have ATT. With respect to that all I can tell you is that if you set it up this way it will be the most functional it possibly can be. My Customize has not ran this well since 1.0.2 ! ...and on a side note 1.1.4 seems a lot more stable than 1.1.3 IMO. I did a CLEAN RESTORE and was back up and jailbroken in 8 minutes!

    Uhhhh you must have missed the memo...... 1.1.3 and 1.1.4 does not support dock changes IN ANY WAY at all through customize. It is not designed for these firmwares. Apples GUI has total control over this and it isn't going to change.

    We are forcing the Customize program written for 1.1.1 to work on .2, .3, and .4

    If a new Customize program were released the option would not be there to change the dock. It's completely locked down by apple now in the firmware.

    THANK YOU. Now I can just give up on trying to get Customize to work. Merci.

    Customize works perfect, you are just using a program that was not written for this firmware and the option shouldn't be there in the first place. Stick a piece of tape over the dock option so it blocks you from seeing it if it bothers you. It literally does not exist in these firmwares, just like the mini dock option which I will miss forever.

    If it's so "locked down", then why can I change it using SummerBoard? Or are you just talking about how many icons are in the dock?

    they are talking about having 5 icons in the dock, but the grid was designed differently so the loophole to add a 5th icon is now impossible!

    Terminal? What is Terminal? Hahahaha. Nice job one! I just made mine for those who can't find their way around the old school techniques (the ones who majorly rely on Installer).

    I still can't get Customize to work on my Ziphone jailbroken phone (ATT).
    Looked at the permissions on each file in the folder - all set to 0755 except for Customize which is set to 6755.
    Very odd

    No luck. I use Fugu and deleted all the customize folders I could find. (var/applications/customize AND var/mobile/library/customize) Couldn't find any other files.
    Hard reset is needed to get Customize icon to show for the 1st time. Customize crashes on multiple attempts. Re-hardset to no avail.

    Any suggestions?
