|Available In: Cydia||Price: Free|
I finally had a chance to sit down and take a look at the new Customize for firmware 2.0.
At this time, it is still not available via Cydia and the only way to get it on your iPhone or iPod Touch is to SSH it in Customize is now available via Cydia. When I SSH’d Customize onto my iPhone, I had to go in and change the permissions of all the folders/files inside the Customize.app folder to 0755. Before I change the permissions the app just opened and closed (I tried to open it quite a few times before I changed the permissions).
So, once I changed the permissions, I was able to open Customize. From there I downloaded a few files and some themes. However, I could not get anything to actually work. If I went into Customize Images/Sounds and tried to set anything (Dock, Battery, Badge, Bars, Edge….) I would get an error saying, “Copy Result Encountered an error copying the files.” Also, if I tried to change something like the System Strings (which doesn’t require a download) I would get an error that said, “Save Result Failed to save strings file.” After some research on the Customize Forum I found that SpicyChicken suggested running this code:
chmod +s /Applications/Customize.app/Customize_
I ran the code, resprang my SpringBoard and went back into Customize. This time everything worked! I was able to change the dock, edge and wifi bars, the badge, application icons, system strings…etc. So, run that command and you should be fine. The actual application itself has not changed, it looks and functions the same as in the previous version. I am soooooo happy to have the ability to customize my 2.0 iPhone! I’m very excited! Now I just have to remember everything that I had changed before.
You can get Customize 2.1.1 HERE.
Update: Customize is now available via Cydia!
