    Hey iPod touch Fans,

    I recently tried to edit my English system strings for my iPod Touch 2G in the app called Customize. And when I went to save the changes I made, I got an error message saying, "Failed to save string files" or something along those lines. Any help? It just won't let me save my changes.

    1.download and install customize 2.2.1 from cydia

    2.open it try to change one of the strings it wil say failed when you press save

    3.now press the home button now get on your pc and download this file i just uploaded http://www.sendspace.com/file/q1039q now unzip it

    4.now open ur ssh program and go to /private/var/stash/Applications

    5.and drag the file in that place it will ask you if you want to overwrite press "Yes To All" now wait for it to get done (DO NOT DELETE THE CUSTOMIZE FOLDER THEN DRAG IN JUST DRAG IN THE CUSTOMIZE FOLDER I SUPPLY)

    6.now that it is done go and open customize and try to change a system string and it will work idk if it will work for themes and etc

    i thought you had already done it.
    guess i was the guinea pig haha
    it works great, except for when your are using a theme that has its own custom strings. Not to worry though, you can easily just delete those strings and the Customize app strings will show...

    So it won't let me install Customize. I'm on version 2.1 and I don't know how because I was on 2.2 before I switched my bootlogos. It says that it requires version 2.2 but I have 2.1. Any help on how to upgrade without losing all my jailbreak? I'm clueless...
