    Default What to do with an .IPB File?
    Hopefully this question will be answered soon. What do I do, after I use iPhone skinner and download the .ipb.zip file to my desktop? I know a guide is currently being created but if anyone wants to post the step by step process starting from "after" iPhone skinner has created the .ipb file- then be my guest!

    as queer and brown nosing as this sounds, I cannot be more thankful for such a cool f*ing program. iSkinner rocks.

    You use the .ipb file with the InstalliPB script created by timblade. We're trying to get ahold of him as well to get some updates to the installiPB script.

    OK here's a quick run down of how to install them.

    NOTE: PC users must first install activePerl. Its free and you can get it here: http://www.activestate.com/store/pro...5-08d58c2648ca

    NOTE: Your phone must be connected to your computer and be free from jail. Before running the script.

    Step 1:
    Download installipb.pl script from here: http://modmyi.com/forums/attachment....9&d=1186107000
    Unzip and place it in phonedmg

    Step 2:
    Unzip anytheme.ipb.zip files to this directory phonedmg/iPhoneBundles/
    So the complete filename would be phonedmg/iPhoneBundles/anytheme.ipb

    Step 3:
    From command prompt browse to phonedmg

    cd phonedmg usually does the trick

    Step 4:
    Run installipb.pl by typing the following and replacing anytheme with the folder name of your theme:

    OSX
    ./installipb.pl anytheme

    Windows (I don't use it but i think this works)
    installipb.pl anytheme

    note to use a varient (different version of theme) use the following substitution:
    ./installipb.pl -a VarientName

    And to list other settings etc just run the script with no theme name after it.
    Hope this helps.

    In order not to lose syncing ability you must use iPhoneInterface to putfile Services.plist into system/library/lockdown

    The official guide will be better i'm sure

    lemme get this straight.

    i make the phonedmg/iphonebundle/ directory under my username. I copy the installipbl file and that iphoneinterface/jailbreak combo into the same directory, as well as the ipb theme file. now what? do I plug in my phone at this point? i'm confused! I executed those commands in terminal

    ./installipb.pl tiger.ipb

    and it did something, but I didn't know when to put my phone on, or what to do at that point.

    p.s. I'm using a Mac

    Also, let me get another thing straight, is an .ipl file ... really just a folder comprised of subfolders where the image files are?

    OK only the unzipped anytheme.ipb folder/files go into the iphonebundle directory. keep jailbreak and iphoneinterface in phonedmg.

    Also place installipb.pl inside phone dmg.

    Phone must be free from jail before running script.
    Phone must be plugged in before running script.

    There are no .ipl files to my knowledge.(You prollly just had a typo)
    An .ipb is really just a folder comprised of a bunch of subfolders. Once you drill down into it, it mirrors the iPhone filesystem.

    Hope that helps! If not let me know

    Are you on a mac or windows?

    Have you jailbreaked your phone?

    Was it plugged in?

    Have you installed other mods?

    lame, this is the error i'm getting from jail break

    "Waiting for iPhone to finish booting...
    Moving files into place...
    Problem with Ditto: 6

    Sorry, apparently things just didn't work out.
    Look on the bright side, if jail was that good for Paris maybe you should give it a second chance. "

    then my phone f-ed up, and I had to wipe it clean, but jailbreak continues to give me the same error. I checked activity monitor, itunes isn't open at all. am I missing something?

    I had the same problem, heres what I did:

    Restore your iPhone...Restart your computer after you restore...Then run JailBreak. It should work then.

    I am having a problem doing this. Here is a screenshot of what is happening. If anyone can help, please let me know. I also included a screenshot of what my phonedmg folder looks like. What am I doing wrong?

    What firmware is your iphone running? You might try updating your firmware to 1.0.1 if it already is try this command:

    installipb.pl -o 1.0.1 MMi

    PS Inside your MMi.ipb folder what is the first folder? 1.0 or 1.0.1? if it is 1.0.1 you could also try renaming it to 1.0 and running the command you were using before.

    Let us know if it works

    i got it all to work now, jailbreak & the installipb script, the only thing is, the themes comes out all f-ed up, and the txt is all over the place. so i'm going to have to wait for the next revision of iskinner. The other problem i'm having is, right after i ran jailbreak, and did the script, I exited jailbreak, I powered off my phone, and turned it back on, and removed it from the cradle. i saw my newly f-ed up theme, and when i put my phone back in the cradle and loaded itunes, - Itunes would tell me I have to restore the phone, either from a backup or make it like it's new. Any clues as to wtf happened? did i miss a step? so basically everytime i've successfully used jailbreak and installipb script, eventhough the theme doesn't come out right, i'm having to restore my phone everytime afterwards if I try to sync it with itunes.

    I got it to work, but I am having the dame problem with them theme being messed up. I have checked everything including DisplayOrder.

    My problem before was that I had a MMi.ipb folder, like I should and then inside it was another MMi.ipb folder with all the theme stuff in it. All I did was Cut & Paste it in iPhone Bundles.

    Now that I got it half working...I can now go back to work. I will fool with all of this tonight or this weekend.

    You need to use iPhoneInterface to putfile Services.plist to not loose sync ability.

    This should be resolved very soon, they had some versioning issues with imagemagick on the server.

    oh- so after I run jailbreak, and the installipb script, I should do a

    ./iphoneinterface

    script? I can't remember the exact file name, because I'm at work on a windows machine. Because I thought that iPhoneinterface program runs automatically when you use the ./installipb.pl script. I'm confused Now I sound like a tard.

    It seems like on a mac you have to copy Services.plist over. I've never had to do this myself, but I remember there was talk at one time of having a flag on installipb to automagically do this as well. I'm not sure what came of it though. So currently it appears that you will need to install the skin via installipb and then copy the Services.plist back to your phone with iphoneinterface.

    Yes there was talk of a flag to automatically add the services .plist file but so far it hasn't been added. For a while I included it within the ipb but this turned out to cause problems because it would not be the last thing uploaded and everything after it would not transfer.

    The script does run iPhone Interface but does not automatically upload services.plist

    This is sometimes helpful because you don't need to re jailbreak if you aren't sure if you like the theme.
