    Ok, so many people (including me) tried to make customize work on 1.1.3 but never succede. Many though "Lets just do it manually", the only problem is that the files yo need to modify are in a lot of different places in your iPod. I found those places, and I'm about to reveal them to you

    . If you don't understand anything of this, then I suggest you familiarize yourself with the forum and the jailbreak. If you don't know what SSH is, use the AWESOME search feature ! Anyway, here is a step by step tutorial:

    note: This method is a bit longer then if you use customize, so if you can get customize to work, then use it!
    !!! WARNING !!!
    THIS HASN'T BENN TESTED ON A 1.1.4 IPOD YET (AT LEAST NOT BY ME) !!! IT MIGHT NOT WORK!​
    How to find what you want
    Okay so this post is a bit long, so if you only want to change one thing, and you don't want to look at all the other stuff, then press CTRL+F and enter what you are looking for in the little box that pops-up.
    EX: If you want a custom slider, type in "slider".

    What you need
    - Something to SSH into your iPod (I use winSCP but they all work fine)
    - The thing you want to replace (ex: If you want a custom slider, you must have a slider :S)
    - Patience

    Thank You

    I tried all weekend to get Customize working correctly. Couldn't do it.

    This is just what I needed to make the few changes I needed.

    Thanks.
