    Some of the credit for this goes to King Chronic at this thread

    I took the code and added tons of things to it. I also replaced some of the graphics. It works with 1.1.4 confirmed, but should work with all the firmwares prior to this one.

    UPDATE: This has been submitted to the OpenRepo!

    Again all the credit for the FUNCTIONALITY part of this mod goes to King Chronic. Part of the layout and part of the graphics have been modified by me.

    Installation (SSH):

    Installation:

    1) Open up the folder pertaining to you
    2) SSH into your iPod/iPhone
    3) Navigate to /Applications/Preferences.app
    4) Copy the whole Preferences.app folder to your computer and save it in a safe place. This is just incase you want the regular Preferences back.
    5) Highlight all of the items in the folder you opened in step 1
    6) Drag all of the items into the Preferences.app folder
    7) If you are asked to over write files say "Yes"
    8) Respring

    --------------------------------------------------------
    Uninstallation:

    1) Open the folder you saved your old Preferences.app
    2) SSH into your iPod/iPhone
    3) Navigate to /Applications/Preferences.app
    4) Delete it
    5) Copy your backed up Preferences.app to your iPod/iPhone
    6) Respring

    FAQ (Read this before you ask questions):

    I have submitted it to Skylar. I think he's the one who monitors the iPod touch fans installer repo, that is a Community Source.

    No, this just lets you change the theme in SummerBoard without opening SMBPrefs

    I put Wallpaper on the main screen but forgot to make it so all people could see this. I don't know what you mean about the tweaks in a subfolder? Clarify this please.

    All this does is set your signal to max, basically if you have only 2 bars but want 3 this will do that. It doesn't increase your signal strength or speed, just the picture it displays

    To make the double tap home button work you have to put the N45AP.plist file included in this post here:

    /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app

    This will enable the Unified iPod thing. It is ok to over write the old file, but you should probably make a backup

    You can put anything in the fake time, text, numbers etc.

    This should be perfectly safe on 1.1.3, but don't come crying to me and say "OMG I BRIXED MY IPOD!!!11!"

    Yes, delete the Blackwolf one and replace it with mine

    This should only appear if you have an iPhone or have your N45AP.plist set to iPhone. But what I think it does is erase the EDGE text from the menubar when you are in EDGE coverage zones.

    Wait for the Installer version (coming soon)

    Follow this guide --> http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=57889

    YES! Rep is always appreciated!!

    If only I could edit this...

    can you like do me a favor?
    Can you put "Wallpaper" by itself below "Wifi"
    and then a group of the others?
    and maybe get the tweaks inside a subfolder?
    if not, then it's ok
