    I made a "more" app to do the jailbreak cloaking thing, and I put the code

    <key>SBIsRevealable</key>
    </true>

    into it's info.plist so it would be hideable with app reveal, but still when I double tap it it just opens. what is wrong?

    also I put it before the last 2 lines (</dict> and </plist>)


    EDIT: never mind, it turns out you need to restart your springboard for that to take effect.

    simple. take the 2 lines of code I posted in the first post, and put them into the info.plist of the app you want to change, right before the
    Code:
    </dict>
    </plist>
    lines works best for me.

    then restart your springboard and turn on app reveal in your extended preferences!

    now the apps you just modded, along with safari, youtube, and itunes, will be invisible. double tapp them to hide, double tapp again to get them back.

    simple. you can just unhide safari youtube and itunes with a double tap (dont remove the code, I did that and messed up my apps)

    and you dont type in the code I just posted. thats already there. you take the one from my first post and type it in, exactly as stated, right before the 2 lines I just posted.

    does anyone know why this messed up my mobilemusicplayer.app, mobilenotes.app,and mobilemail.app? i made a backup and then when they started to act funny just backed them up and it didn't work. i can see them in mabilefinder and the dock.app but they wont launch.

    You've edited the Info.plist wrong. It works because I have it for every app on my iPod.

    I do it right on my ipod. just make sure you have mobile finder and text edit, and you can edit any plist straight on your ipod!

    Not the default iPod apps, unless you convert the plists from binary to ascii.
