    So if you guys have Universial Search.
    (Searching the internet using your spotlight.)

    You might like this.

    If you want your own custom search site on your iPhone or iPod Touch
    using your Spot Light.

    (its the next best thing to having the search intergrated on your Mobile Safari.)


    BE CAREFUL, ONE TYPO AND YOU COULD MESS CRASH YOUR SPRINGBOARD.
    Open SSH and go to:
    /Library/MobileSubstrate/UniversalSearchResources

    Find:
    URLs.plist
    and
    URLs_order.plist (possibly optional)


    You need a plist editor.
    I used:
    plist Editor for Windows (Direct Download)

    Once you copy the two .plist files from your iPhone to your computer.
    Drag the .plist file (URLs.plist) onto the shortcut of "plist EDitor for Windows".

    It will open up with a code.
    Edit the searches you will probably not need to use.
    I edited Yahoo's search, cause I never use yahoo.


    Keep:
    <key>yahoo</key>
    <string>Search Yahoo</string>
    The same name!
    or if its another search, keep it the same.
    Code:
    <key>yahoo</key>
    	<dict>
    		<key>description</key>
    		<string>Search Yahoo</string>
    		<key>icon</key>
    		<string>YOUR IPHONE ICON YOU WANT TO USE.png</string>
    		<key>locationAware</key>
    		<false/>
    		<key>name</key>
    		<string>NAME THAT APPEARS ON SEARCH BY ICON ex:(iPTF Search)</string>
    		<key>title</key>
    		<string>NAME OF THE SEARCH ex:(iPTF Search)</string>
    		<key>url</key>
    		<string>http://www.apple.com/search/?q&lt;search&gt;</string>
    	</dict>
    
    Code:
    <string>http://www.apple.com/search/?q=&lt;search&gt;</string>
    Must add the:
    Code:
    &lt;search&gt;
    At the end of your search so it knows where to put the searched text:

    Code:
    http://www.apple.com/search/?q=
    Example with Myspace search:
    Code:
    http://searchservice.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=sitesearch.results&orig=search_Header&origpfc=Splash&type=People&qry=SEARCH&submit=&lt;search&gt;

    -------------------------------
    I am not to be held responsible if your springboard crashes.
    If it does, it should start up in "Safe Mode"
    If it crashes, go to cydia, and reinstall "Universal Search"
    Then it should be back to normal.
