    Default ipod Touch - various questions - thank you!
    Hi guys,

    Can you please try and help me. I have had my touch a few weeks now. Rather than ask lots of individual questions, I thought I'd ask the lot in one go.


    part 1

    I've spent the last few days creating my theme. Only thing left is a sound to play when I 'slide to unlock'.

    I have a JB ipod touch 2.0 with cydia.

    I have successfuly created a 100kb .aiff sound file (using itunes). if i ssh into my ipod and rename it to .caf it successfuly becomes a .caf file. It plays in GOM PLAYER and works.


    I found 2 unlock sounds files when browsing my ipod touch files using ssh.
    there is a unlock.aiff file in coreservices/springboard.app

    and a unlock.caf in Audio/UISounds


    I replaced both of these . then turned sounds to 'on' (headphones) in the settings on the ipod.

    when i slide to unlock...i still get that annoying default 'tock' sound and not my sound.
    My .caf file is similar size to the default one and is not corrupted. I changed permissions from 644 to 755 and it still doesnt work. I changed back to 644 and still doent work. i rebooted etc.. etc.. basically, i have tried everything i can think of.
    I downloaded WB themes with sounds from cydia and the sounds do not work.
    I DO NOT want to use IMHO that piece of s**t CUSTOMIZE. But if anyone is wondering, yeah i tried that too and it didn't work.

    Shall I just give up?

    part 2
    Ipod Touch original dock.png

    Do you know where it is inside the ipod touch folders - please let me know?
    or , a source where I can download it from? I've tried google...but i got nothing.

    It is a grey coloured dock with many black holes...

    Part 3

    The unlock slider - is there an easy way to make this big? like, take up half the screen size? . all the one's I have seen are kinda small.

    Part 4

    On Cydia, there are 2 scrobbler programmes.

    Which one is the better?

    I have the free lastfm app from appstore on my touch
    do I keep it when i install one of the above scrobblers? or do i delete it?

    What do these scrobbler apps do?
    Am i right in thinking that these cydia scrobbler apps send my music to my last fm account/the server and therefore when I log into lastfm on my touch the next time, there will be loads of recommedned stuff?

    Is that basically it? i.e. it's a fast way of letting lastfm know what i am into rather then manuall adding songs/artists that i like on my desktop pc?


    part 5

    when listening to music on my itouch...the volume slider/line is at the bottom. I have some mp3's that are EACH 60 minutes long. and sometimes i wanna scroll to a particular time .. for example, to exactly the 30 min mark. The slider used for this is INCREDIBLY small.. any easy way to make it bigger? (this can also apply to movies too... 2 hour movie and you wanna get to a certain part and it's hard to pinpoint that sldier to the scene cos the slider is sooo small)

    Part 6

    I have a few simple apps like 'chores' , 'grocery list' etc.. and a couple more where i have put data in. The apps dont come with pc syncing yet. If I create a BACKUP on itunes...will it save the data of these apps too?



    Thank you SOOOOOOOOOOOO much.

    1. Are you sure you replaced it? Perhaps you didn't name it correctly and didn't overwrite the previous file. Is it the correct format? I see mine as a .aiff, but you mention .caf, so are you sure you have the correct format?
    2. In <\System\Library\CoreServices\SpringBoard.app> there are the files:
    SBDockBG.png
    SBDockBG2.png
    SBDockMask.png
    These are the dock pictures, but if you applied a theme (with Customize, as I see on mine), it is changed to the theme applied (in this case, Buuf2). If you've backed up the files, you should have them, but I do not.
    3. That would require you enlarging the picture (don't know if that would change functionality as well, i.e. you would have it bigger, but you'd have to put your finger at the same place and slide). If that doesn't change functionality as well, you'd have to change some files around to use the entire pixel length of the picture.
    4. I don't use last.fm, if you want you can try them both and decide for yourself.
    5. See answer #3. But, if you want it more accurate, you'd have to get a larger screen. Enlarging the picture wont make it more accurate.
    6. No. Backing up the device saves only things related to iTunes/iPod/Apple (no self-made apps or jailbroken apps)

    Any more questions? Ask!

    1. there's 2 locations for a file named unlock. one is springboard.app and other is audio/sounds.. i swapped both with the CORRECT file..

    i give up. f**k apple.

    2. thanks..i found out that the png's from my ipod touch cant open on my pc..but it's cool...i am gonna use my own dock

    3. i guess it's impossible

    4. i just wanna know what scrobbler is..
    and whether i need to keep the 'legit' last fm app on my itouch or not?

    5. not sure if u understood my question..but thanks for trying man

    6. Thansk! that f*****g sucks. i guess i will have to wait for the app developers to introduve some kinda syncing... not apples fault here.

    cheers.


    still searching for answers...most importantly to numero 1


    ps. an aiff is a .caf file..it's just renamed. anhd yes...the files i had were in same format as tose i replaced

    dont know much of them, but.......

    1. you cant change the unlock for the ipod touch sound. i believe that it might be possible on the 2g, since it has speakers........ put it'll only change for the earphones, unfortenatly

    Well, you mentioned the bottom slider (volume) but wanted to change the time slider (top). It's hard to enlarge it unless you radically change the bar as there are only so many pixels on the screen. If you want buttons for a certain point, then that can be made, but changing the slider to be easier to use would mean extending the screen.
    If I still am not getting your point, please elaborate further to the lamest gist possible!

    Well, you can manually copy everything from your device to your computer (via SSH), if you're up to doing nothing but copy/paste for 30 min (or more).

    5. I have this problem too. But, you can pull the knob to the general area of where you are trying to get it too, then hold down the seek button and it should fast forward, and you can just try to stop it where you need to.
