Thread: SummerBoard 2.1 installs icons!
09-13-2007, 08:19 PM #1SummerBoard 2.1 installs icons!
or it should...
with the natural development, now that it has themes, icons are the nxt step....
so.. where does that leave iSwitcher? I'm fine if SummerBoard meets my needs to swap icons then most likely iSwitcher will go the way of iDecor
I am concerned, there seems to be no place for support or information about SummerBoard. We, as users, are left wondering, okay wtf is next?
I will say this, if there are iSwitcher users that still want to use iSwitcher after SummerBoard installs icons then I will fully support them. In addition there is a web site that's lists changes and updates to iSwitcher.

the only reason I havnt tried iSwitcher yet is because im wary of replacing my installer.app or whatever. Why isnt it just already in installer like summerboard is? Just worries me about legitimacy and if installer.app is still able to update the other apps?

summerboard still off on my phone...it jacked up mine once..had to do a restore..lost all my personal pictures and some..had to free my phone and remodded all over again.
In the meantime, iSwitcher kicks butts...it had been really fun creating themes and load them onto iSwitcher and change them on the fly...another cool thing is..i can show them off to my friends..slide to the left, showed them 15 of different themes right there and then..pretty cool app. By the way, iSwitcher and iSwitcher's themes are on Installer...
Thanks Greg for making it fun for me. Keep up the good work.

hey greg installed iSwitcher finally... and yea doing it via iBricker was very easy, even with the first time using the program. How do i add more themes just winscp them into the iSwitcher folder?

CyberGreg, I LOVE iSwitcher. Unless Summerboard can keep DisplayOrders with each theme switch, it will NEVER replace iSwitcher (at least for me). I also, agree with others here, that we don't know who the
"SummerBoard" peoples are, and why we can't or they won't speak with us. I personally do NOT like the New Summerboard. It does not give the option to turn off their dock(image) and just leave ours. It disabled iSwitcher for me (i Use iNstaller). Please Continue, you are appreciated. Keep up the Great Work!

09-13-2007, 10:52 PM #11summerboard update gave me a freeze
I updated to the new version of summerboard and my phone froze up. It went to the voice recorder app and then nothing. I hooked up to my mac and was able to sync my contacts although the phone wouldn't work. I then did a restore from itunes. Things seem to be ok except I lost all of my installer.app stuff. Did I do something wrong, have others had this problem?

There's usually one of two problems:
1. The theme zip file doesn't work (needs to be ditto zipped or Stuffit for Windows)
2. The Info.plist file doesn't contain the correct theme name.
I will continue to support version 0.92 which DOES install a DisplayOrder.plist file.

I personally am a huge iSwitcher fan. I haven't been excited about summerboard. Since summerboard's inception It seems like the amount of themes have declined with more of a focus on icons, but I think that the creativity in the whole theme background and icons is far less limiting than icons alone.

That would be awesome if summerboard could do everything because I am not sure if anyone has noticed but everytime we install something the free space available drops and at this pace we will be down to zero in no time,lol. Being able to cut several programs out and pack it into one program is a-okay to me. Plus, it seems that with summerboard, if the icons get installed by it, then the springboard will refresh on the fly without having to wait for springboard to reset. I love iSwitcher but summerboard would be one killer app if it installed icons/whole entire themes.

I do think it's more convenient that do all the theme thing by one software.
but now summerboard changed the way of the icon's disappearing movement,iswitcher can give the original,why not continue developping in your way?
iswitcher,summerboard,rsbt 9 dock icon just make the theming more and more exciting and various

I know how to install via iBrickr with it going to the pxl site, but how do i install the new 1.0 (and delete 0.91). iBrickr wants to find a .pxl file but there is none. I would rather install the one that puts it in installer.app <-noob hehe

Btw, Greg your wording on the subject is pretty bad. You make it seem like there was a 2.1 out, and thats kind of messed up Even worse because this is the the "Launches" forum and not the discussion so it really seems like it was released.
Yes, but it's not untrue... yet...
