Thread: Status bar dissapering?

  1. #1
    Angry Status bar dissapering?
    Hi,,

    I have just made a red status bar for my iPod touch and i have put it into my themes folder along with an Info.plist to make it display in the lockscreen and in apps.
    The contents of that is:

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" 
    
    "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    
    <key>StatusBarMode</key>
    <string>2</string>
    
    </dict>
    </plist>
    That is all working fine on SpringBoard and on the lockscreen:



    But when i launch an app, it is still there, untill i close the app.
    Here is an app open:



    It is working fine...
    But when i exit the app...



    There is no status bar.
    If i lock the iPod,,



    Still no status Bar.
    If i launch the same app:



    No status Bar.
    The only way i can get it back is by Respringing my iPod.

    Any one know why this is happening and how i can sort it out.?

    Thanks

    That's a Winterboard issue caused by Statusbarmode, remove it and it'll be fine

    Hi !

    [Delete the plist or... ?] .

    I never worried about how "SolidStatusBar"-.plist works, Maybe 0 is for transparent, 1 for personnalized and 2 for default ?

    Without this, 3 .pngs are needed if you want your StatusBar to be red all the time:

    FSO_BG.png
    Default_BG
.png
    FST_BG.png

    (while FST_BG is for the lockscreen, FSO_BG for the springboard and Default_BG for open applications).

    They should work in Your.theme/Bundles/com.apple.springboard/
    (I was wrong first with /Folders/SpringBoard.app)
    with permissions set to 755.



    If you can do without the Lockscreen, a StatusBar.png on the root of the theme does the job, too !

    Tell the result please ! These machines are full of surprises ^^

    I had major probs with StatusBarMode. The way I got around it was to change the Default_BG and all the Default_xxx icons to be the same images as the status bar you want to use
