    Default [Dev Attempt] Landscape.app

    Hello everyone,

    I have seen people ask about having Landscape Springboard abilities. So I have decided to try to work on it. I do not have much obj-c experience (I am on Windows XP SP2), but I think I have an idea.

    If a developer has the obj-c code to make an app turn to landscape mode when the accelerometer changes I would like if you could send me that piece of code. I am going to attempt to try to find it. :hack:

    My plan is to get the original springboard.app coding and add landscape compatibilty to it. I would then have to figure out how to make the icons turn and figure out something to do with the dock.

    If I can get this to work then I will also be making the original SMS app with landscape compatibility.

    More details coming soon. I am going to be learning as much Obj-C as I can to make Landscape.app (app to add Landscape to SMS, Springboard, and Notes) and APA.app (App Protection App aka APA adds password protection to an apps of your liking) If you are an experienced coder and would be willing to help me then PM me or post here. Or if you know any guides or tutorials to help me learn more obj-c to create an iPhone app.

    Update 1: I have Springboard.app and MobileSMS.app. I have ALMOST installed the toolchain. I am stuck on one part. Read post #8. Then I need to get landscape code which I think I can get from modmyifone or drunknbass's website. After that I need to figure out a way to decompile the apps to get them to obj-c code so I can implement the landscape coding. PM me if you think you can help!

    Thanks,
    DJ McG

    Thanks,
    I am waiting for the toolchain to finish getting the iPhone's root filesystem right now. I am also trying to get the code to transition form regular to landscape view, then I will get then original springboard.app and try to see if I can adjust it to allow landscape mode. Then I will attempt with SMS too! I am making a mockup of what it could look like. Still not sure about the dock and "page dots" on top of the dock. But I think I have an idea.

    Thanks for your interest!

    P.S. Thumbs up appreciated!

    toolchain is 60% done. Once its odne I will get Springboard.app off of my phone. Then I will try to implement the landscape code.

    EDIT: 69%, I will keep everyone updated. And if someone wants to be a "beta" tester for Landscape v0.01 once I get it together, just pm me. I will accept 5 beta testers and you must have over 100 posts.

    95% done! When it is done it will take me about 5-10 minutes to get the springboard.app. Then it could take me a little bit to get the landscape code snippet. But then I have to figure out how to turn the sprinboard app into an obj-c code so I can implement the landscape feature. If any one has an idea on how to do this please post here!

    OK, it hasnt finished installing yet, but it says its not finding MacOSX10.4.u.sdk and to go to iphone-dev.googlecode.com to figure out how or if I already have to to type something. But I do not understand wat the iphone-dev googlecode page is trying to say. Here it is:
    1. Install the cpio utility using your distribution's standard package management system. All the major Linux distributions, as well as Cygwin, should have this utility.
    2. Download the Xcode DMG from Apple's Developer Tools download page. It is free, but you will need to register with them. It is also huge (~924 MB).
    3. Extract the Packages/MacOSX10.4.Universal.pkg directory from the Xcode DMG. Do not use the Linux kernel's HFS+ loopback mount: it does not support the format used by this DMG, and your files will be corrupted. One program that is known to work is PowerISO, although it isn't free.
    4. Extract the pax archive inside the Mac OS X 10.4 SDK package.

    mkdir MacOSX10.4-Universal-SDK
    pushd MacOSX10.4-Universal-SDK
    gunzip -c ../MacOSX10.4.Universal.pkg/Contents/Archive.pax.gz | cpio -i
    popd

    5. The SDK files should now live in MacOSX10.4-Universal-SDK/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.4u.sdk in the current directory. You'll pass the path to this directory to the configure script in the include directory. Feel free to get rid of the Xcode DMG and the package directory now.
    Any ideas? I extracted the pax archive but I dont get step 5...

    Hate to burst your bubble, but this isn't going to happen. It is not possible to turn compiled applications (like SpringBoard) into Objective-C source. The only way to edit it would be to turn it into Assembler code, which is extremely complex and hard to follow. With your level of coding skills, you will not be able to do this. Even the most advanced coder would have a HUGE level of difficulty, and I'd say that it's possible that it can't be done. To summarize: Not gonna happen.

    You are 100% positive? I have seen people decompile apps before. Isnt it the same thing?

    EDIT: What if I used a launcher or something and made it the "default springboard", that way right when the phone turned on instead of loading the original springboard it would load this app.
