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.
Manual fix for icon order

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.
