    Default statusstyle
    I can't find it in the installer app. Do I have to add a source or something?

    It doesn't seem to work for 1.1.4, the developer says it should but I've noticed that it doesn't.

    hey this is how u change the Status Bar manually in 1.1.4 mac
    if u cannot get status style to work

    (i dont know how windows plist editing works)

    Ok

    ssh in and go to var/mobile/preferences

    then get the file com.apple.springboard.plist

    and open that and scroll down to com.apple.springboard

    then open it

    it will say SBDefaultStatusBarModeKey ---> Number --->3

    To change the status bar change that 3 to:

    0= tiger style

    2= hidden
    Digg

    Does anyone know how to get a completely clear status bar?

  13. #10
    var/mobile/preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist file needs you to manually set permissions to 777 for statusstyle to work on 1.1.4

    to manually change the statusbar color u will need to edit 3 files in System\Library\CoreServices\SpringBoard.app
    Default_BG.png
    FSO_BG.png
    FST_BG.png

    however the text color will stay the same unless u use status style but u can make any colors u want
    Mepaphoros if u make a clear png it will be clear, although statusstyle has a default clear one to use

    var/mobile/preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist file needs you to manually set permissions to 777 for statusstyle to work on 1.1.4

    to manually change the statusbar color u will need to edit 3 files in System\Library\CoreServices\SpringBoard.app
    Default_BG.png
    FSO_BG.png
    FST_BG.png

    i tryed adding http://www.touchrepo.com/repo.xml but it said that it wasnt supported. what do i do?

  19. #15
    XML aren't supported in cydia, this thread is from way back before cydia when installer was in use. Won't work now.

    hi there

    home screen and lockdown screen
    Translucent_Base


    anyone know how to set the status bar to the same color ive got it working but its also the same color for the lockdown screen sorry if its already been mentioned im knew

    Default change statusbar colour
    changing the statusbar colour use to be as easy as making a picture pNG file called 'statusbar' and i've read you can edit some plist files and put that in your theme folder

    OR download some custom ones via cydia

    so no need for manually changing as stated (which btw those 3 files don't exist in my phone)

    only probably is I can't get it to work properly on firmware 4.2.1

    my status bar is dark and covering up the custom colour i've downloaded for it...stupid apple
