Thread: Re-Ordering Springboard

  1. #1
    Default Re-Ordering Springboard
    Is there a way to re-order Springboard apps so that the stuff I don't use often are on page 2?

    Download rSBT from the Installer.app

    rSBT doesn't seem to be working... Looks like they are working on a 1.1.1 update.

    I figured out how to reorder springboard, with a lot of help from #iTouch

    Find the N45AP.plist file in /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/N45AP.plist and copy it to your desktop.

    Open terminal and type.

    cd ~/Desktop
    Then

    plutil -convert xml1 N45AP.plist
    Open the file in any text editor and rearrange the file order as you see fit.

    Then, back in terminal:

    plutil -convert binary1 N45AP.plist
    Next, put the file back on the iTouch.

    You can only rearrange Apple apps, but you can also order Mail, Maps, Weather etc.

    Keep a "virgin" copy of your N45AP.plist somewhere safe, just incase: you don't want to have no apps on springboard!

    There's a full mac tut here for all icons:

    No windows love yet since you can't edit plist files on windows. If anyone knows of a way let me know.

    There was a link to an online "plutil" somewhere... I know there's also one random windows program that can edit plists... but i'm not sure which one as I'm a maccer through and through.

    That will convert it so notepad/wordpad can read it.

    I've heard jEdit can read them, but I never got it working..

    Check out

    http://iphone.natetrue.com/EricaUtilities/

    it contains a "native" plist converter that runs on your iphone/touch. Which works great. I am thinking if anyone can find native compilers so we don't need tool chain and can develop directly on iphone/touch.

    Well, you can ssh so to use your full featured keyboard for coding.
