    [HOW-TO] Custome 2.0's Status bar, system images, and much more.

    Hey guys. As you know, the filesystem of 2.0 is very different than 1.1.x. So, I spent a little time locating some of the files used in customize.

    WHAT YOU NEED:
    - Something to SSH into your iPod (I use Cyberduck but they all work fine)
    - The thing you want to replace (ex: If you want a custom slider, you must have a slider)
    - Patience

    AND MAKE SURE TO BACK UP ALL FILES BEFORE REPLACING!!!!

    Custom Icons-
    1. SSH into your ipod/iphone and go to:
    /Applications/Whatever app you want.app
    2. Then find the icon you want, and change the name to icon.png.
    3. Copy the file icon.png to the .app folder, and it will ask to replace it. Say YES. 4. Then reboot, and you should have a new custom icon.

    Custom Dock-
    1. SSH to:
    System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app
    2. I'm not a genius at this, so this is all I did to change it.

    You find a dock you want to replace the stock one with, and duplicate it.
    3. Name one of the two: SBDockBG.png, and name the duplicate SBDockBG2.png. 4. Then, copy the two files into Springboard.app. It will ask to replace the files. Say YES.
    5. Then reboot, and you should have a new dock. If not, reboot again, and give it a few minutes.

    Custom Battery (not header)-
    1. SSH to:
    System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app
    2. This one will take a few minutes. You need to find the battery set. It contains 17 files. What you need to do, is rename each one. The first one is BatteryBG_1.png. Then keep naming them, going BatteryBG_2.png, BatteryBG_3.png, etc.
    3. Then take the 17 BatteryBG files, and copy them into the Springboard.app. It will ask to replace, say YES.
    4. Then reboot, and plug it into the computer, or charger. You should have a new battery. If not reboot and try again.

    Custom Badge Icon
    1.SSH to:
    System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app
    2. Find your badge icon, and rename it to SBBadgeBG.png
    3. Copy the SBBadgeBG.png to Springboard.app, and it will ask to replace. SAY YES.
    4. Then reboot, and then when some type of unread document in an app is displayed on the icon, the badge should be different.

    Change the Wi-Fi icons
    1. Go to /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app in SSH
    2. Rename your custom Wi-Fi images (from the lower to higher connection) to
    The more darker ones:
    Default_0_AirPort.png
    Default_1_AirPort.png
    Default_2_AirPort.png
    Default_3_AirPort.png
    The Pale ones:
    FSO_0_AirPort.png
    FSO_1_AirPort.png
    FSO_2_AirPort.png
    FSO_3_AirPort.png
    3. Put all these files in Springboard.app, it will ask to replace, and say YES.
    4. Then reboot, and it should be different. If not, reboot again.

    This is all i have found, but hopefully we can find more. I will update in this post with more changes.

    -Hope this helped!

    I have no idea what the boot logo image directory is. I think you can only change it via Pwnage.

    UPDATE!!! CUSTOM SLIDERS AND MASKS!

    I figured out where the sliders, bottom bars, and masks are.

    To change the slider!
    1. SSH into System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/TelephonyUT.framework
    2. Rename your slider to bottombarknobgray.png
    3. Copy it into the folder, and replace it. Make sure to back-up. Then, reboot.

    To Change the Slider Mask
    1. SSH into System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/TelephonyUT.framework
    2. Rename the image to bottombarlocktextmask.png
    3. Copy it into the folder, and replace it. Make sure to back-up. Then, reboot.

    I will post more later!

    Lol, I think you mean "directory" not "dictionary". A "dictionary" is a woeterbuch in german I believe.
