    this is a tutorial on how to get 2 Customizes (2.0 & Danimators) to appear on Springboard

    1. You will have to manually install Danimators Customize (u can install this from his repo)
    then SSH in and save
    Customize.app (/Applications/)
    Customize (/private/var/mobile/Library/)
    DockSwap (/private/var/mobile/Library/)

    2. After u have saved Danimators Customize somewhere on your computer, update to 2.0 by going into Installer

    3. Next go into Finder or FileBrowser and rename Customize.app to Customize2.app

    4. Then find the info.plist file located in /Applications/Customize2.app/, and save it to your computer somewhere

    5. Next open the Info.plist file that u just saved to your computer and find the line that says
    <string>com.thespicychicken.customize</string>

    6. Insert a 2 after customize and save, then SSH that back into (replacing the original)
    /Applications/Customize2.app/

    7.Next go to /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/English.lproj/ and find the LocializedApplicationNames.strings file and save that to your computer as well

    8. Open that file (u may have to convert it first) do that here http://140.124.181.188/~khchung/cgi-bin/plutil.cgi

    9. Once converted this add this
    <key>com.thespicychicken.customize2</key>
    <string>Customize2</string>

    below

    <string>YouTube</string> and save, then SSH that back in (replacing the original)

    10. Next SSH Danimators Customize version back in.
    Put Customize.app in folder into /Applications/
    Put "Customize" folder into /private/var/mobile/Library/
    Put "DockSwap" folder into /private/var/mobile/Library/

    then set it up as usual by doing these 3 commands in Terminal

    chmod -R 755 /Applications/Customize.app
    chmod +s /Applications/Customize.app/Customize
    /Applications/Customize.app/Customize

    11. then ure done

    now u will be able to have both customizes on your springboard at the same time as well as both of them still working.


    note* when an updated version comes out for 2.0, u will have to rename the modded customize to something else
    other than "Customize.app" and rename "Customize2.app to Customize.app and then update, then after updating, find the Info.plist file in Customize.app then insert a 2 after com.spicychicken.customize and save then ssh back in and rename to how they were before (Modded=Customize.app and 2.0=Customize2.app)

    Would I be able to rename the modded verison to something like dCustomize or something? I don't want to rename 2.0 everytime there is an update.

    yes u can rename it to whatever u want but u have to change the identifier's name to like for instance if u changed it to dCustomize, u would go into the info.plist file in the app and change com.thespicychicken.customize to com.thespicychicken.dcustomize

    then u have to open the locializednames file in Springboard.app and insert this
    <key>com.thespicychicken.dcustomize</key>
    <string>dCustomize</string>

    below

    <string>YouTube</string>

    edit- nm it doesnt seem to work when renaming the modded one, it just breaks the modded one, so the modded one has to stay renamed as normal

    and save and ure set

    they both work, u just only can rename the 2.0 Customize for some reason because renaming modded seems to break it

    i guess this could be useful for some people since, customize 2 could be a pain if you are sshing stuff into it. then you would have to go through all those different categories to apply the things. takes a while.
