    Angry Customize 1.13 w/rSBT - Random positions

    This new release of customize w/rSBT is driving me nuts, I arrange the icons in the order I want in rSBT but after pressing the save button and returning to summerboard they are arranged in a totally different way.

    I recall being able to do this on 1.0.2 precisely, but now its just random.

    Any idea?

    Default Manual fix for icon order

    This function is currently broken, but if you're willing to do a little manual editing, it's not hard to fix the order by hand:

    The order is stored in: /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/M68AP.plist

    If you copy that list to your computer and open it (I use PlistEditPro on a Mac), you'll see a group called displayOrder. That group has four subgroups: buttonBar (the Dock), iconList (the applications), special (hidden apps), and thirdParty, which I assume was added by rSBT.
    This last group is the fundamental issue, as the "thirdParty" group no longer works, and that is where Customize/rSBT is storing the application order.

    If you simply move the items from thirdParty to iconList, put them in the desired order there, save the list, and copy it back to the phone, the order will be displayed correctly. Be sure to keep a backup copy in case you mess up, although it's pretty straightforward.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks by the TONs (BTW welcome to the forum!) I will look into this as soon I have some time on my PC, glad to read there is a simple solution

    I guess we cannot force 12 icons only on the first screen with this method?

    There's an option in SummerBoard that lets you do just that.

    yeh i know, but summerboard is relly unstable (crashes phone apps all the time), whereas customize is a bit more concrete.
