    so, ive been trying to rename my text app to Messages for a while, and i cant seem to figure it out. ive tried using the rename app and it doesnt work, so i resorted to SSH. im familiar with how to use it so i followed a guide which led me to editing a file where names showed on the springboard. but when i try to edit the text, its not showing all of it. its showing little squares instead of the entire text in the file.
    can anyone tell me what im doing wrong?
    Thanks.

    Sounds like you may be trying to open a binary file.

    What is the file name/path?

    Probably a plist or strings file. See my signature for ways to edit it.
    Windows tool to edit .plist, .strings and .nib files: pledit.
    Or use a website that will convert the binary form to a readable format.
    On iPhone you can convert those files in a terminal with plutil (installed with Erica Utilities from Cydia), or edit them with iFile (from Cydia).
