    Im having trouble with what seems to be a simple task.

    I did as followed an uploaded several .png's to the directory

    Things im typing and order
    1. iphoneinterface
    2. cd /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app
    3. putfile FSO_CARRIER_ATT.png
    (it says it worked with the 1 return)
    4. putfile Default_CARRIER_ATT.png
    (it says it worked with the 1 return)
    5. Hold down power and slide to reboot

    i also

    rmdir all FSO_CARRIER_<carrier>.png and Default
    when I "ls" they are truly gone.

    however, when i reboot and what not, it still says AT&T

    I deleted ALL of the carriers FSO and Default and AT&T still appears in the top left hand corner.

    Anyone know of have any insight?

    Try not putting the initial slash before System.

    No luck, AT&T is still showing up

    i did
    cd System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app
    putfile Default_CARRIER_ATT.png
    putfile FSO_CARRIER_ATT.png
    then rebooted (power and slide)

    wouldnt you think that if the AT&T png wasnt there, the logo would just not show up?

    Any other ideas? or things to try? Im very open and I really want to get this to work on my phone

    YES! I DID IT!

    I think this was the problem
    when i putfile i was normally doing this:
    putfile Default_CARRIER_ATT.png

    however, i think what you are suppose to do is put:
    putfile System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/Default_CARRIER_ATT.png
    and same for FSO

    hope that helps others!

    Oh, ha, I didn't even see that. I need to read more carefully. Yes, that was your issue.

    thanks for the assist pf

    i have a new question, is there a wiki for display order changing?
    i hear its possible by moding the DisplayOrder.plist

    I dont have a mac , but when i try to getfile DisplayOrder.plist iphoneinterface crashes. does anyone have this file i can download?

    Editing The Main Menu Positioning

    Next we need to edit the DisplayOrder.plist file. You can use the command 'getfile' in iPhoneInterface to get the version off your phone, or you can do it the easy way and just use this version. http://cliqklabs.com/iphone_tricks/DisplayOrder.plist This version adds a shortcut to DemoApp in position 1 and FieldTest in position 9. DemoApp does not do anything yet, but once the toolchain is working, we will compile and app and put it in there.

    Tips for Editing Your own DisplayOrder.plist

    On a mac you can just double click on this file and edit in the Property List Editor tree view. I'm not sure how to edit it on a PC, it's not just ascii... Once you are inside the file, It's pretty self explanatory, but you can basically put any app in any position from 0-11 by changing the displayIdentifier variable. The rest of the icons just get shifted down. If you add more than 16 icons, the list does not scroll, however it has been reported that the SpringBoard.app has the ability to scroll more icons, perhaps just not enabled in this version.

    The displayIdentifier property under each item in iconList needs to be a string with a value of something like: 'com.apple.mobilesafari' or 'com.apple.DemoApp', or 'com.apple.fieldtest'

    Once your happy with your DisplayOrder.plist file put it into the same folder as your iPhoneInterface app, and type these commands in the iphone terminal:

    Upload your Modified DisplayOrder.plist

    cd /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/

    putfile DisplayOrder.plist
    from here

    Ah, right. We'll figure a way to edit them in Windows, then, as well. Any Windows guys here that can open it and edit?

    Think that someone could create a display order wiki page? I have no idea how to do that... hehe

    To create a Wiki page, simply navigate to http://www.modmyi.com/wiki/index.php/your_page_name_here and click Edit, and you're set! Type away.. you can even paste what I put in there earlier. Post a link up here if you don't want to add it to the Main page of the Wiki, and one of us will... lets get hacking!

    For some reason it keeps telling me i need to hold it longer than I am. I tried it about a dozen times with th same effect. I hold it until the screen comes up, until the pinwheel shows, let it go earlier, hold it for exactly 25 seconds, hold it for two whole cycles. Every time it tells me I need to hold it longer.

    Any suggestions?

    I think what the first instructions for jailbreak said was to hold it, and keep holding it until the thing reboots all the way up.

    No, it said to hold it untill it booted into Recovery Mode.
