    Default DockSwap
    :: pf edit ::

    DockSwap allows you to change the dock image on your iPhone, FROM your iPhone. The app pulls images from /private/var/root/Library/DockSwap/ and then separate folder per category. So if you want them separated by Movies, Landscapes, etc, you would set up those folders within the DockSwap directory, and put dock images in each respective folder.

    Dock images can be named whatever you'd like, DockSwap will automatically rename them and apply them as you set them. They should be interlaced .png files. And yes, it DOES play nice with SummerBoard!

    Available via Installer.app or <a href="http://code.google.com/p/dockswap/">their site</a>.

    No, but I imagine it could be used in conjunction with summerboard so you dont have to manually switch the dock every time you change your wallpaper.

    I just downloaded it, installed it, and it definitely does what it says

    To install the dock images, you put the DockImages folder in /var/root/Library/Dockswap/

    Whats funny is i figured out where they went on my first try lol

    This dockswap works perfect for me. You dont need to change the permissions on the images. Just change the name to whatever you want and put the image into one of the folders in the dockimages folder, or make your own folder inside var/root/library/dockswap/dockimages/

    ahhhh, now I get it.
    You have to have a folder inside DockSwap folder not just an image then..
    I only dowloaded DockSwap-0.01.zip. cause I have my own dock and the original DockSwap folder was empty... well It's working now.
