Thread: Editing String Files

    Default Editing String Files
    sorry if this is the wrong section, n00b here.

    been hacking for lik 7 years with my Motorola phones and computers blah blah blah but im wondering about these .string files

    i opened it in notepad to reveal all the text bindings, im wondering if i can just edit the text in this file, save it and reupload it with the new settings and that should in essence change on the ipod what i changed in the string file correct?

    its kinda skin related lol

    to use pledit.exe to modify SpringBoard.strings you will have to copy the SpringBoard.strings file that you want to edit. Rename it to SpringBoard.plist. Open it in pledit.exe and make your changes that you need and save. Then rename the file back to SpringBoard.strings. Then you can transfer it back to the phone. Your best bet is to apply this in WinterBoard. To do this create a Strings.theme folder, inside of that folder create another folder called Bundles. then inside of that, another folder called com.apple.springboard. Inside that folder create an en.lproj folder.(assuming that your of english language) That is where you will drop your newly edited SpringBoard.strings file. Select the Strings.theme in winterboard and place above all other themes.

    Default Possible problem with string file?
    Hey guys,
    not sure if I posted this in the right section,
    this has been bothering me for a while now, I've got a 3gs on 3.0fw.
    I think some of the string files are messed up?
    See photos to see what I mean.
    P.S. I tried disabling all the mobile substrate add ons with sb settings, also diabled all my rock app extensions. But it didn't make a difference.

    Has anyone seen this before?

    You might be missing the images for those parts. If you are, you would probably need to restore to get them back, or if you know what they are, someone could send you them.

    I don't know for sure though.

    Never mind, I figured it out, it was the Springboard.strings file under
    //System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/English.lproj it must have been corupted somehow, I downloaded the original file from the downloads portion of this website and copied it into that folder and resprung, and it's all good now!!!
    In case someone runs into the same issue.
