    Default Bunch of 1.1.3 fixes for Australian iPhone owners
    Greetings all

    Been reading the forums for while, first time posting!

    After restoring my iPhone to 1.1.3 (a countless number of times), I'd find myself spending way too much time applying patches/fixes to satisfactorily "Australianise" my phone. Which drove me up the wall. So I did something about it - I whipped up my own repository, and threw my fixes into packages. Without further ado, we have my repo:

    http://users.tpg.com.au/gillnsg/repo.plist

    Feel free to add this source to Installer, feel free to try out the fixes. Just a note, most of these fixes are for Australian users.

    Here's what I have so far:

    1.1.3 Caller ID Fix:
    Contacts show up correctly in your address book and text messages. Area code numbers (eg. +61 412 345 678) + non area code numbers (eg. 0412 345 678) that are the same get merged (they don't show up as two different entries). Works on 1.1.3 only.

    1.1.3 Timezone Fix:
    Sets correct permissions so when a timezone is changed, the settings are saved (basically a chmod a+w /private/var/db/timezone/ for those who don't fear terminal!). Works on 1.1.3 only.

    Australian Phone Format:
    My 'neater' version of Australia's phone formatting. Area codes are enclosed in braces (), mobile and landline numbers have proper spacing (04## ### ### and #### #### respectively). Works on 1.1.2/1.1.3.

    GPRS Icon Mod:
    This mod isn't Australian specific, but will definitely come in handy if you are with a carrier other than Telstra (eg. Optus/Vodafone). It replaces the blank GPRS icons with a 'G' alternative. Let's face it, blank squares suck. Works on 1.1.2/1.1.3.

    Weather Icon Fix:
    Again, not Australian specific. Lets you change the weather to be displayed in Celsius, whilst also allowing Summerboard to theme the icon properly. Works on 1.1.2/1.1.3.


    All of these mods/fixes backup the stock firmware files that are modified, so uninstalling will bring your phone back to its original state.

    I've tested these fixes on my phone, and 3 others all running 1.1.3 (combination of updated and restored to 1.1.3).

    If these apply to you, by all means try them out, and I'd love some feedback. Any other mods that I should throw up that just save time?

    Thanks for your time,

    gillnsg

    P.S Where's this bloody SDK?

    Nice job, Will give it a bash, Hope the timezone fixes the SMS's all out of order.

    Cheers mate,
    Nick.

    UPDATE:

    Nice work on these mate, Worked like a charm, installed GPRS as you said nice to see the block changed.

    Also the Time-zone fix, Do you know if this will repair, the time stamps on SMS's being all out of order, i can seem to fix it.
    Thanks given
    Cheers,
    Nick.

    Thanks for some feedback.

    From what I gather, you just have to specify the correct Timezone under Settings->General->Date & Time (for me it's Melbourne).

    By default it's Cupertino, so to change it, flick 'Set Automatically' to OFF, then change the Timezone to the city of your choice. You can either set the time manually, or flick 'Set Automatically' back to ON. That should fix it (I tested it just now, sort of :S).

    Let us know how it goes, cheers,

    Hey man, great fixes. I haven't tried them yet but I sure as hell will! Just need to restore and jailbreak my phone again, problems you see, lol.

    I'll let you know how I go when I install them. =]

    And for nickh, make sure the time is right on your computer. The iPhone automaticly pulls that time if when it syncs. If your not sure of the time try setting it from one of your message times or using the internet time feature of your computers clock. Works for me. =]

    Thanks again man,

    Yeah I have. Works fine. Just have to change your SystemVersion.plist down to 1.1.3 if it gives you an error.

    Hey, thanks for the fixes.

    Have an issue still with incoming SMS in that the number is not matching up to the name in contacts all the time.

    Is there something else I should be changing or a different fix/patch to overcome this?

    Using 1.1.3 unlocked on the Optus network.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    RJ.
