Load the icons with iSwitcher and set the theme to Leopard in SummerBoard (if the SummerBoard theme has icons, turn them off to see the iSwitcher icons).

    What if you want a custom dock, the iTouch icons (iSwitcher theme) and the Panther theme? Well then you need to use, iSwitcher, SummerBoard and DockSwap...


    My personal favorite is my Earthlight SummerBoard theme (no icons) with blueStone... or wait maybe it's Prado iSwitcher w/Woodpanel SummerBoard theme
    i personally love both...one cant function without the other i use prado icons and leopard theme aswell =)

    I use iswitcher and I love it! i use it in conjunction with dockswap, i tried installing summerboard twice and both times it made my iphone freeze and nothing worked and i had to go into restore mode and restore it and have been too afraid to try installing it again, but last time was 2 days ago. Stickin with Iswitcher!

    I just want to say summerboard and iswitcher work great together. I am full on newb just bought my first computer 2 weeks ago and my new iphone. 2 days ago and am amazed at all the apps that are out there and you guys who create this stuff keep it comming. I think those two apps go hand in hand.

    Help Greg!

    Something must be wrong with something on my phone, because everyone is saying that iswitcher and summerboard work great together. Not on my phone.

    If I try to change a theme using summerboard and I have all the sliders including icons turn to the on position, The iSwitcher icons still remain, the only ones that change are the ones that there was no new icon for that app using the iSwitcher theme. Im sorry, hard to explain at 4am...

    All the icons that had been updated by iSwitcher seemed to be locked in. This includes all the original programs on the phone as well as many of the third party apps. I uninstalled iSwitcher, same result. I installed the latest version of iSwitcher, same result. I can switch themes using iSwitcher, but thats all. Did iSwitcher possible change a pref. file that I need to delete or something like that.

    Thanks in advance

    So you're saying that iSwitcher is working but SummerBoard isn't? Um.. how is this "my" problem? Just kidding.....

    You need to be running SummerBoard 2.1 or higher and you know not all SummerBoard themes have icons, right? What third party SummerBoard themes have you installed?

    To be perfectly clear, iSwitcher replaces icons directly in the app folders on your phone, where SummerBoard uses it's own icons to "present" applications that you have displayed on your home screen. So, unless you have every single icon on your home screen you won't see the SummerBoard changes in say iLauncher or Launcher or XLaunch for that matter.

    In addition, to get the full benefit of iSwitcher, you should select the "iSwitcher" SummerBoard theme because this is the one that iSwitcher uses.

    laugh...when I was writing it I thought the same thing, but it just seems like iSwitcher is taking priority over the icons. Do you not think this is the case?

    I was using SummerBoard for a while, the themes are nice, didnt really mess around with the dock

    However when I came across the ISwitcher themes.... WOW!

    Great stuff Greg!!!

    That is absolutely the case, if:
    1. The SummerBoard theme has no icons
    2. You have icons turned off in the SMBPrefs

    I am 100% sure that if you are running SummerBoard and you pick a theme that has icons, they will show on the home screen and not the icons that you loaded with iSwitcher.


    Boy, wouldn't it be nice if iSwitcher could install icons with spaces in their name (Lights Off, My Ebay, etc) and if you could somehow tweak a theme once you had it installed. Say like have an "Icons" folder inside each theme where you could just drop in some special icons or updated icons that were released after the theme?

    I added four "dialer" apps to my home screen, you know like the 911 app but obviously not 911, they are people specific. Well these are named like "Jim Cell", "Bill Work", etc. It would be really great if iSwitcher could change these icons, too....
    Hmmm

    By your response I gathered that it was just not a quick fix with one of your pref files. So I looked deeper into what I did to my files that could be causing this. And I found it! Before when the only way to get rid of applications names were to edit the "LocalizedApplicationNames.strings" and thats exactly what I had done, I erased the name so it would just be blank. But I guess that information is useful for summerboard. Replaces the "LocalizedApplicationNames.strings" file with a fresh copy off of this website and all works great now. So sorry about the false accusation iSwitcher didn't cause any of my problems, and it works great side by side with SB.
