    Default Battery and DisplayOrder.plist
    Ive got the icons changed to what I want, and I've been searching the forums for hours now. I cant seem to get the battery right. I have the 17 png's i need to use in my phonedmg folder. I type in iphoneinterface in the CMD, then type cd /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app. Then it goes to this "iPhone:/System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app#" then I type in "putfile BatteryBG_1.png" and it says "fileref:1" so its going to the phone. and I did that for all 17. But when I restart my phone, it is still the green battery. Can you guys help me out...

    Also I want to move my email and safari icons from the "dock" area and put them on a new (4th) bottom row. email on the left, safari on the right. I have the DisplayOrder.plist in my phonedmg folder but im not sure what to do with it or how to move the icons around.

    Thanks for all the help!

    Make sure you are putting the trailing slash after the cd.

    cd /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/

    instead of

    cd /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app.

    For the .plist, simply open it, and swap the two you want to change. Then save and re-upload.

    Exactly. So take the two you want to swap, and swap them.

    for instance, if you want to swap Safari with SMS, swap com.apple.mobilesafari with com.apple.MobileSMS
    .

    ok, im gonna try and figure it out. Battery didnt work btw. this time i did the cd /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/ then it came up with "iPhone:/System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/#" and I put "putfile BatteryBG_1.png" etc. all the way through 17, turned the phone off and back on, but still nothing. should i be putting the entire command like this "putfile /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/BatteryBG_1.png" ?

    I moved the com.apple.mobilemail and the com.apple.mobilesafari from buttonBar to the iconList underneath the preferences in the .plist. I think its right, but I might be trying to put it in wrong. I went to iphoneinterface, the hit "cd /System/Library/Lockdown" then put "putfile DisplayOrder.plist"

    But it didnt work, the icons are still at the bottom.

    :sigh: ok, do I have to put the batteryBG.png's in a certain order? in thw Wiki it shows the #1 png first, then #10-17 then goes back to #2-9. Do I need to upload the photos in that order?

    and I still no luck moving the icons around. I went to cd /System/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/, hit enter the entered "putfile DisplayOrder.plist" then lock'd down after that. but still nothing

    i even tried jailbreak again and started from there. But nothing. It's weird cause I was able to change the carrier id, the icons, add ringtones but the battery and moving the icons are proving to be very burdensome!

    ok, figured out the battery deal. I have to use the rmdir code then the file path (im guessing that erases the original) then do putfile and the filepath... samething with the .plist. pretty much just tweaking things now.

    Nice. Kooman, that's done through editing the DisplayOrder.plist.
