    Widget-Weather App Now Available! Also with MyLocation Support!
    Check out the thread here - Widget-Weather
    To install the Widget-Weather app, just go to Cydia and install. This will also remove MyLocation, as it is built in!
    Want to protect your JailBreak! Add this repo http://cydia.myrepospace.com/iLEXiNFO/ & Install "iLEX R.A.T."
    It will allow you to bring your phone back to a fresh jailbroken state!

    Default Misunderstood
    I think you misunderstood me. I want to remove/hide the statusbar and all its icons on the springboard. These files (which I already used) just makes the statusbar transparent, and the carrier icons and stuff are still visible. Thanks.

    You could theme all those icons invisible, all those 'no x status' 'tweaks' that require winterboard (thus NOT a tweak, IMO) do that. But otherwise wait for no springboard status to be updated?

    I don't think that will hide the icons...don't know though.
    Lockscreen Settings tweak WILL hide it on the lockscreen tho... For sure.

    Why you want it totally gone?
    Does not the hidesb status tweak not work in iOS 6?
    Haven't checked myself.
    I memory serves tho, it's still visible in apps...

    You can't just use iFile and delete these files. They are apart of the [email protected]k so you're not going to be able to access these files via iFile.

    You can however extract the [email protected]k and make transparent versions then recompile then it will be like you deleted them if you don't want to use WinterBoard.

    Nav to

    /System/Library/Frameworks/UIKit.framework.

    Make a Backup!!

    Smash phone!
    Kidding.
    Like the bold color in circul8!
    You replied to me earlier today...somewhere else...

    Good luck. I hate messing w/ stat bars.
    No matter what I do, there's always an issue somewhere, in some app or other...
