    How to Customize your iPhone/iPod Touch’s firmware using PwnageTool (MAC)
    …. adding apps, Library, documents ecc…

    REMEMBER TO BECKUP YOUR INSTALLER SOURCES (that are on /private/var/mobile/Library/Installer)

    I’m Italian so if you find grammatical errors please post/report it!

    We are going to create a real customize firm :

    Note!
    This Tool will help people who don’t wont change firm version just for don’t lose all the apps
    Or for the one who would like to change the boot logo, but just for this don’t wont to unlock another time (and download) their device!

    Once you’ve load the selected firmware, enter in the “IPSW Builder” selection:

    Do not change anything (or just the recovery and boot logo) and clik on “ok”

    PwnTool will start to work unzipping the original firmware:

    Do no insert the password (or just do not clik on “ok”) but double clik on LittleBear4A102.N45Bundle….

    Inside you will recognize the loaded firmware (as you had know on MobileFinder o CyberDuck).
    So now it will be easy to drag and drop everything you want (that as previously download from your old firmware (not jus apps but also settings pictures, photos, themes…So everything!)

    WRONG WRONG WRONG.

    It's not as simple as dragging and dropping Apps into the Folder to install Apps.

    You need to create custom bundles so the correct permissions can be set and the Apps installed PROPERLY.

    The way he showed does work because he is defining that there are extra apps there.
