Thread: [REQ] Standalone Cloaking App

  1. #1
    Default [REQ] Standalone Cloaking App
    I saw someone made an app that could hide icon with double tap but with all the other stuff...
    I heard is not as stable tho...
    Can someone make a standalone instead?


    thanks in advance,
    soda

    Haha. It's a built in function of the iPhone and was made by Apple. It's quite stable.

    First, open up "com.apple.springboard.plist" which is located in "/var/root/Library/Preferences/" and if their not there already, add the following lines:

    <key>SBEnableAppReveal</key>
    <true/>

    Then, for each program you want to hide, open up its .plist, (Mobile.Safari.app/info.plist for instance) and add the lines:

    <key>SBIsRevealable</key>
    <true/>

    That's all there is to it.

    but are we doing this manually?
    I wanna have it on the fly, so I could hide some icons if I have to borrow it to somebody...


    thanks in advance,

    Each individual App would need to be configured manually, but once that's done, it's all on the fly. And there is a prefs hack that will put the option to enable/disable the AppReveal function in your General settings. I can send that to you when I get home tonight.

    thanks again
    I heard about the pref hacks but I don't need the other stuff
    it sounds buggy and I don't wanna messed up my plist and other things...
    so if I add the line manually, after that I could just double tap to hide and reveal or how does it work?

    Yup, every time you reboot, the icons will be invisible. You double tap the space to make the icon appear and then tap it once (as normal) to make it run. Double tap again to make it disappear. I put all mine right above the dock, that way, it "looks" like a normal setup with the bottom row missing, but all the apps are there.

    Can you post the hack...very interested.

    can you take some Screen Shot too?
    will it leave the spot empty or will it mess up the arrangement?
    I wish there's an app that could do all these...


    thanks anyway,

    Ya again, this is not like customize. It keeps the same icon arrangement (leaves the slot empty), its just invisible. Customize removes the icon from the list entirely. I'll provide some screens for you tonight when I get home.

    Its really not that difficult.

    Ok, here are the screenshots in order.

    1. How the screen looks when I wake the iPhone.
    2. Double tapping the space where Customize is.
    3. General settings window. (App Reveal ON)
    4. General settings window. (App Reveal turned OFF)
    5. How the screen looks when App Reveal turned off.

    Below is the Info.plist for MobileSafari.app, you'll note in red where the lines go:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">

    I never new this function existed! I guess even us old codgers can learn something new! Thanks!

    yes, please make a simple app for this...
    wouldn't it be tedious to go through all the plists?

    .plists are not in text format. You either have to open them with a program that can read them natively (BBedit for Mac, Wordpad for PC) or use a perl program (available here in the downloads section) which will convert them to XML for you.
