    Default Extendable Preferences
    This was made in response to Supreme Preferences and Extended Preferences before it, I got mad that both couldn't merge together and only one real preference file could be used while AppStore applications had a Settings.bundle system for making preferences fit neatly into the Preferences.app, so I made Extendable Preferences, it's not much of an app, more of a system cobbled together with different types of things but it's very simple for someone to now add a preference for their jailbreak app into everyone's iphone instead of making little utilty preference apps, (I'm looking at you Reminder.app)

    Here's basically what i'm talking about



    As you can see theirs two lists, so that's basically what i mean, jailbrake apps can get a list of preferences now, (I can change JailBreak Preferences: btw), but right now... w.e

    INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS:
    http://gauravkhanna.net/files/Extendable-Prefs1.zip

    Extendable Preferences.theme goes in /Library/Theme and must be enabled in winterboard
    updateprefs goes into /usr/bin and must be set 755 root:wheel
    other two folders go into /var/mobile/Library

    once files are placed just run command "updateprefs"

    Sorry for the awful instructions (and grammer), it's 2 AM and i'm really tired so now time to sleep

    Here's basically what i envision in terms of development

    All the developer has to know is plist knowledge,
    icon.png <--- icon image
    Root.plist <--- root plist files
    misc.plist <--- # of misc plist files that can delve how ever deeply they want to

    packedged into Name.bundle
    and sent to /var/mobile/Library/PreferenceBundles

    now the manager behind all this is "updateprefs", so during an install script the last command that must be run is simply /usr/bin/updateprefs

    and it should show up in the user's Settings!


    I will be following all posts so if theres any trouble just please post back, and the first two entries included with this are just test runs!


    FIXED SUPREME PREFERENCES BREAKING CARRIER, problem was the stupid fake bars thing, who uses that anyway?, ill figure out a way to get that just for ipod users so they can "trick there friends" (dumbasses) if they want but otherwise its just a dumb feature for iphone users so i deleted it

    Thanks for the replies guys, yea I made a few changes to Supreme, like it's general had Phone but not Phone favorites so i added that, and i'm gonna look into the whole carrier thing but right now it's pretty much the same Supreme so it breaks carrier, you can see in the screenshot mines broken and i've been frequently using MIM to fix it, grr (no offense iMario), o and iMario (if u read this, for the record), i removed some of your copyrights from the plists even the general ones that i used so if you wan't them back just let me know, not a big deal, didn't mean to but in my testing i had to weed out possibilities like that to understand how plist's work, yes this will be in cydia really soon which will make install a ton easier, im sure no one here even wants to do it because install is a b***!

    just fixed supreme preferences, yay

    I have a problem with Extended prefs and Scrobbled. Ext. Prefs eats up my Scrobbled menu in Preferences

    Did it happen to anyone else? I had Supreme Preferences installed previously, but I removed them, because I didn't like the idea of having to wait for the splash screen to disappear.

    That's the problem I'm trying to fix actually, right now the preferences must overwrite each other, my system allows developers to make separate extensions to the Settings for each of their apps, convince the developer to make an extension!

    I've solved the problem by uninstalling Scrobbled and installing Scrobble
    Scrobbled for some reason did not work for me

    I have this app installed, and i don't have any real complaints. Just don't play with the touch sensitivy options, they can be very frustrating.lol
