    Default [Extended Preferences] v0.3 (By the original author) [56k Warning!]

    IMPORTANT UPDATE

    Hey guys, poetic_folly and I agreed that it would be best to pull it for now so that we can get all the bugs worked out without more people downloading it and needing help with whatever bugs they are experiencing.

    Anyone having problems: The problematic file is stored in /var/root/Library/Preferences/. It is called com.apple.springboard.plist. If you know what you are doing, open it and look for whatever you are having problems with, and then delete it. Or delete the file to make sure it will work, although you will loose some preferences. Remember to sync your iPhone directly after so you don't have tainted backups!

    What is this hack? I think I may have heard of it before...
    This greatly extends the functionality of your Preferences.app, adding features to your iPhone such as Auto-Dim, Fake Bars, Fake Time Text, Enable/Disable On-The-Go on the iPod player, all the features of SummerBoard, and more!

    You may have heard of, seen, or even installed this from an installer source. What happened was I had shared the code for the proof of concept of this, v0.01, with some people at the #iPhone-Dev IRC channel, and some decided to take it upon themselves to rearrange it (in a more messy manner in my opinion) because they probably didn't know what they were doing and put it up on an Installer source. Now, this wasn't anyone on the iPhone Dev Team remember, it was a random person in the IRC channel that 'wanted to know more about my discovery'. An article later appeared in TUAW about how someone had made a way to integrate the 'Six undocumented SpringBoard functions' into Preferences.app, plus more. Upon further inspection, those people seem to have copied off of the person who ripped off me, at least doing a better job and even finding one function that I hadn't found yet. Anyway, now that we have that cleared up and you know I didn't just rip off someone, let's move on...

    Okay, can you show me what it looks like before I install this?
    Sure, here are some screenshots. Remember that we are way past the stage of the proof of concept, so it looks nicer and has more features:




    Do you plan on making any updates to this hack/tweak?
    Of course! v0.4 is already in early beta/late alpha stage!

    In these updates you speak of, will you be adding more options to the Preferences.app to make my iPhone even more customizable, or will you just be making it look better?
    We plan on doing both. As more and more is discovered about the iPhone, we will be there to make it easier for the regular end user to use (Come the SDK in February, those without the brain compacity and/or desire to jailbreak won't have to be left out either!)

    What if I don't like this and just want to go to the plain old boring Preferences.app (Or if I have to take a trip to the 'genius' bar)
    The uninstall is made so that it just reverts to a backup that is made in /private/var/root/Library/Preferences.app/ upon installation.

    What if I delete the backup?
    When you install it in Installer, there is a warning in the description AND a warning that pops up when you press the install button saying that you should not delete it. If you choose to do so anyway, well, there isn't much that can be done about that...

    Well thanks for all of this information and screenshots...but where can I get this tweak/hack?
    It is planned to be released on the ModMyiFone source within the next week or two. If you have Community Sources installed, it should be there on your sources list already. If not, just add http://modmyifone.com/installer.xml to your sources list, and you should be set. If anything changes regarding the source, the release date, etc. I will post an update in this thread, but the above informatifdon is quite solid at the time.

    What firmware versions will this work with?
    This has only been tested on 1.1.1/1.1.2, and I don't know if it will work on 1.0.2. Although I have not been able to test it, it could work on 1.1.3, so if you have your hands on a the leak, try it for yourself and report back your results.





    TL;DR

    Status: Live on MMi source as of 1/14/08

    Source: http://modmyifone.com/installer.xml

    What is it: Tweak that greatly extends the functionality of Preferences.app

    I've seen this before!: If you skipped the above so that you could read the 'Too Long; Didn't Read' section, I will not bother because the explanation is long and you won't read it

    Plan on making any updates: Yes, many.

    Is this very different from BlackWolf's?
    Would also be nice if (based on the screenshot):
    It was "Enable Auto-Dim", double negative may be confusing
    and the brightness could have the number like BlackWolf (or DarkWolf) has.

    Waiting for it anyway!

    Only problem is Apple added added the value SBDisableAutoDim for some reason, didn't make any sense to me but there wasn't one for enable...

    So there's no "Enable"? That's sad.

    When should we expect to see this in Installer? : P

    I may just remove the Disable option and add a Never to the list of times

    Probably within the week. Make sure you have http://modmyifone.com/installer.xml added if you don't have the new Community Sources installed
