Thread: Bossprefs

Hybrid View

  1. #1
    Default Bossprefs
    This native iPhone app is an offshoot of "Services" by Chris Hoffman. The app expands on services by adding some more options and focusing on being a complete preferences replacement. After installing BossPrefs? you should be able to remove Customize, SMBPrefs, and Settings icons from your desktop.

    Install by adding my installer repository here: http://sleepers.net/~iphone/repo.xml

    Here is the google code page for it:

    I got the update on installer and now my BossPrefs has two SMB icons at the bottom instead of Settings and SMB. One of them actually is Settings, the icon is just wrong.

    It just runs whatever customize you have installed. Did you update it to 1.19?

    Yes I am. I'll make a note of that as a future feature.

    I love it! its awesome :]
    I think, IMO, that it could be cooler and more formal if instead of the customize/ smb/ and settings icons, u could have tabs... thats could be cool

    I moved everything off of the markmon source (my home pc) and onto the sleeper's server. So you can add both without conflict, but the sleepers source is the primary source. I may occasionally put some temporary experimental stuff on the markmon source. There's also a chance I move my apps to STE's repository if mine doesnt become more wide spread.

    Hi all,

    I updated the tool and added some things / fixed some bugs. Remember I moved my repository to http://sleepers.net/iphonerepo (make sure autocorrect doesnt change iphone to iPhone when you enter it. Here is a changelog from my googlecode page (http://code.google.com/p/bossprefs/):

    1.25 -

    * Added a config screen allowing to enable/disable various features.
    * Added ability to have SSH come on or not after reboot (by request).
    * Added enumeration of email accounts to enable/disable them.
    * Reworked IP address on display to be inline on smaller font.
    * Fixed problem on 1.0.2 summerboard launches. It was not launching on 1.0.2 phones but now it does.

    1.1 -

    * Fixed SMBPrefs launch for 1.0.2 iPhones with older summerboard.

    1.0 - Initial version Changes from Services:

    * Add icons to launch apps
    * Add enumeration for email accounts
    * GUI update
    * Reworked SSH enable/disable to immediately kill SSH server (services leaves it running if you have a connection). Also SSH will reload on next reboot as a safety precaution. If you mess up your phone and SSH does not load you have no option but restore. With this change you can SSH in and "fix" the problem. You need to remember to disable SSH in the app after every reboot.
    * Added display of IP address for WiFi? and EDGE.

    Hello Boss,

    I'd like very much to use your BossPrefs. I added both sources you mention on Installer, refreshed many times, checked in the section "All packages" and still can't find it.
    Any idea?
    Thx

    Not sure if this is a bug, but when you have SSH on reboot turned off you cannot turn SSH on.

    My understanding would be that when you reboot it would do what ever you have set, but you should still be able to turn it on and off manually.

    do you think your add more choices to toggle so i can get rid of NETSERVICES.....I LIKE BOSS BETTER BUT IT DONT DO ALL I NEED

    Hi markmon,

    How do I replace SMBPrefs with Installer. I'm on 1.1.2 firmware and don't have a use for it. Thanks!

  19. #16
    I gave detailed answer in pm. That said I can tell you I done have this problem when using netservices app. I don't keep both installed at same time for fear of interference.

    p. S. I took a look at iworld and oddly enough Canada wasn't listed. Guess we aren't a country LOL.

    You can have both installed at the same time. There is no interference. What firmware are you running? Does netservices ask you to configure canadian preferences or does it just seem to know what to do? Just adding a canadian selection is putting a bandaid on the real problem. I don't see why your candian EDGE settings should be any different than my TMobile EDGE settings, for example, and I am not having any such issues. So I'd like to get to the bottom of it properly.

    To everyone else: I updated the code today and have also put out several plugins in my installer that are preconfigured services. These are no different than what you could add yourself if you knew the right things to add in the configuration GUI. Anyhow, only install the ones you need because each additional plugin takes some time when bossprefs is loading to parse the text files and determine if the service is running.

    I can't figure out how to add the Mobile Safari Download Plug-in .. I'm basically just trying to get BossPrefs to run the same script as NetServices run but can't really get it to. Also I'm not sure how it would remember on/off state since there is no process running.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Hi Thanks for a nice app, it brings together all the setting under one icon which is a neat thing.

    however I'm using 1.33 and still have a problem with Edge, basically each time I stop it and re start I have to type in my APN under other. I'm using o2 in the UK and the APN is mobile.o2.co.uk can you fix this so I dont have to type it in each time I restart the service.

    I notice when I stop it it puts DISABLED in the APN but its not restoring it properly

    help appreicated

    That is Same problem I have.
    Markmon am on 1.1.2
    netservices did same too until I spoke to Greg and I guess he added in the configuratin files the rogers won as an option and then it was fine.
    I believe tmobile and Att settings are natively there so it works for you. For other providers however we have to add the son manually unless you do something in configuration. Greg hartsteins would be a valuable resource if you both could collaborate.
