    For anyone stumbling on this thread in the future, make sure the capitalization of Info.plist is correct, i.e. a big I at the start of Info - worked for me.

    Ok you guys are kinda getting at an answer - once you compile the app all you get is an executable- you need to make a folder called "AppName.app" (no quotes/replace AppName with your applications name) and in it put - the executable you got when you compiled, Info.plist, Default.png, and icon.png.

    NOTE- all the files listed have the CORRECT capitalization!!!

    have you restarted the SB?

    Code:
    launchctl stop com.apple.SpringBoard

    No- the Bluetooth app is a toy that puts the Bluetooth icon in the top bar, nothing more.
