    Default I'm so confused, breezy and iswitcher
    ok so I wanted to download iswitcher to put on my phone. so I downloaded the file and so I have a folder with a bunch of stuff in it. I read everywhere that I need breezy to put it on my phone, so I download breezy. now I'm stuck, I don't understand how to get iswitcher onto my phone using breezy. it says the the app should install easily since it is already a pxl file or something, but it's not? ah confused

    open breezy and follow the directions to jailbreak the phone.

    once thats done just double click the iswitcher package and it will install

    if im not mistaken you will need to install the bsd subsystem as well so iswitcher can replace the needed files when it switches themes.

    when I double click on iswitcher it just says this file cannot be used on this system.

    oh and the iswitcher icon on my computer looks like an app, not a package

    is breezy installed and ready to go?

    there is a setup of breezy you have to go thru including holding the home and reset buttons then rebooting etc till its unlocked

    then you can use it, not until thats done.

    Yup, newest one is 0.87. Did you remove the .zip extension? Breezy / iBrickr looks for a .pxl externsion. I only include the .zip to make it easy to download.

    So you can plug in your iPhone and then launch Breezy and it shows whatever (maybe none) other pxl packages you've installed, right? Now all you should have to do is double-click the iSwitcher .pxl file.

    when you download the file it should be called iSwitcher_v0.87.pxl.zip all you have to do is remove the .zip extention

    and then double click

    nvm my phone is now acting really screwy and iSwitcher wont uninstall

    going to have to do a complete restore

    when I downloaded it, it all came in a folder called iSwitcher_v0. inside that is apps, instroot, manual install.txt, master, pxlpkg.plist, and themes. in the apps folder is only "iSwitcher" which doesn't do anything

    i don't see any .zip files?

    Right click the link and choose save as.

    Or, if you have downloaded it on your Mac, look in your Trash, the .zip file is in there. Drag it out, remove the .zip and you have your .pxl file.

    No problem... I'd like to make it easier but if I don't upload them as .zip files then all the users without Breezy or iBrickr won't know what to do with a .pxl file.
