    Any body wanna be the guinea pig? I just saw this on another forum and he claims it causes an automated reflective dock on the iPhone, similar to the iPod Touch...

    He Stated:



    Yup, I got reflections on my iPhone dock.

    I added

    <key>SBUseNewDock</key>
    <integer>1</integer>

    to my /var/root/Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist using TextEdit.

    Anyone wanna open that plist file, add the code, then overwrite it and let us know?

    BTW: I would have tried but I can not find a plist editor for windows for the life of me. Do I convert the file then open it, or is there a stock program like for windows?

    I edited the file and it did nothing. Do you mean the conversion worked, or the reflective dock worked?

    I mean the reflection worked! I'm on 1.1.2 by the way. I attached the edited file if it helps. A couple of screenshots:





    As you can see, the NES icon and the iTunes icon reflects on the dock.

    wow, it works... i'm on v1.1.1, using the attached plist file from jandrad. by the way jandrad, you only added these 2 fields

    <key>SBUseNewDock</key>
    <integer>1</integer>

    into springboard.plist right?

    No problem. I've been messing around with this mod forever and couldn't figure it out. Glad we got it working.

    Ok. Im running windows. I copy the file via winscp to my pc and then I convert it using the online conversion. I got the converted file to text. I open it in notepad I put the key and interger as said before and then I save it. So, how I convert it again to put the changed file again in the iphone ? That is not clear.
    Anyone ?

    Thanks.

    There's no need to convert the file back. You just need to place the edited file back on the phone.

    this is from erica sudan. (tuaw)

    i did pretty much most of those hacks.

    and this one is awesome. you can use it to hide your text icon or photo icon (or any other icon) if you don't want anyone snooping around (i know you can always put a password on your phone but i dont like constantly punching in the pw).
    http://www.tuaw.com/2007/11/29/enabl...n-your-iphone/

    erica states you can hide all but those 3 icons listed...but if you read the comments, its possible to hide them. i did it, and its pretty cool. it gets annoying b/c after it soft restarts, then all icons get hidden automatically. and if you have a lot of apps like me, then it gets annoying having to unhide them constantly.

    but yea, have fun.
    You really shouldn't Hijack a thread. If you wanted to reveal a new Mod post a new thread.
