Customize Working on 1.1.4

I tried to install Customize 1.21 from Installer today and it gave me a warning that it was only compatible with 1.1.1 – 1.1.3. I did a search on and found this article on how to install Customize on 1.1.4. Here is how I did it on a PC:

1. Download the modified version of Customize by Skylar – download here

2. Extract the zip file and copy the Customize folder into your Applications folder on your iPhone via SSH

3. Then run the following commands via terminal (change the folder structure if you’ve using BossTool):

/bin/chmod -R 755 /Applications/
/bin/chmod +s /Applications/

4. Restart iPhone.

Remember you will need to open Customize a few time before it will work properly.

  8. OK i did a restore yesterday on my iphone. I was running 1.1.3 but i used ziphone and just redid everything and went to 1.1.4. Everything in customize worked great before on 1.1.3 but now that i’m on 1.1.4 i can’t find any image sets. They don’t show up in my installer app. Can anyone give me some help with this?

  9. When I open customize, there’s nothing in any of the folders. I went to installer and then to “Themes (Customize),” and installed all except for Apple-Alpha Preset and Ste-Alpha Preset, because they refuse to install. After that, I went back to customize but there was STILL nothing in my folders. I kept turning my ipod off COMPLETELY (forced recovery mode) by pressing the power off AND home button at the same time for about 20 seconds, then turning it back on, but there was still nothing in the folders in Customize. Any help?

  15. Hi. I had a perfectly working customize on my 1.1.4.
    Its been working fine for months. I installed a couple of games last night, and now Im stuck with the icons I had chosen a while ago as customize wont open. Ive installed the Suid fix and now like every one else, it is going back to the home page on opening. I have Summberboard too, and even that wont let me change my theme. I can at least get into summerboard and change the theme, but when I reset my springboard, nothing changes. Looks like Im stuck with a theme I dont really like for the moment. Does anyone have any suggestions?? I dont have Winscp but I have iphone browser, and I run a PC. any suggestions would be gratefully tried. Thanks.
