    I'm confused, how in the world do you get an image to replace the time/carrier in your statusbar?

    /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/FSO_CARRIER_IPOD.png
    for the image on the home screen

    and

    /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/Default_CARRIER_IPOD.png
    for the image when you are in an application

    The png should be 20px high.

    38px wide and 14px high (38x14)

    I use that size and it seems to work the best...

    I'm too lazy to type it out...

    Please Register or Log in to view images


    All the Yellow-Highlighted stuff can be changed.

    The picture is the Info.plist that is in your themes' folder.
    "Arial" is the font, it can be changed to a font on you Device. I suggest using "Arial" "Helvetica" or "Times New Roman"
    "16px" Change the 16 to any size you want, but anything over 16 will be cut-off. Just make sure "px" is directly (no spaces) after the number

    It isn't shown here, but if you want to change the color, just add this after the last ';' (semicolon) but before '</string>':
    Code:
    font-color:[COLOR=Lime] Red[/COLOR];
    
    Red: This can be a basic color or a hex code

    Hope it helped!

    ummm...with make it mine from cydia, you could make a asscii image of sorts (one line of text only) and set it as your banner, this replaces the clock. I think if you put nothing in then press "Set banner" it makes the clock disappear allowing you to include the image you want instead of the clock on your statusbar.png .

    Any help?
