    Danimator's Modded Customize

    Please Register or Log in to view images

    This is a modded version of Customize, based on Skylar's latest custom version (1.2.1-2), as well as latest Customize from SpicyChicken (1.22).
    The Theme Pack is based on the "Sticker" themes and graphics by David Lanham, KorTolk and Louie Mantia. Scrabble theme by Innovative1. Credits where applicable!!!

    1. Restore / Jailbreak to 1.1.3 or 1.1.4. ( I did not, and will not test this on earlier firmwares, so if it doesn't work on 1.1.1 or 1.1.2, sorry bout your luck). If you're NOT starting on a fresh restore / jailbreak please read over the instructions and make sure you have completed the requirements.
    2. Install or update the following packages in Installer
      • BSD Subsystem from the System section
      • BossTool from the Utilities section
      • SUID Lib Fix from the Tweaks (1.1.3) section
      • BSD Subsystems 2.0 Termfix from the Tweaks section
    3. Run BossTool, select the Free Disk Space option, and in this select Move Ringtones, Move Applications, Move Fonts. This will copy the space-hogging items listed above to the larger partition and create symlinks (like shortcuts in Windows) to point to them from the original location on the smaller partition.
    4. Create symlinks (again, like Windows shortcuts) for the Media and Library folders in /var/root to /var/mobile. This is a very important step and could require some elaboration. Since firmware 1.1.3 applications are supposed to store their application data in /var/mobile/Library and /var/mobile/Media instead of the previous /var/root/Library and /var/root/Library. Since Danimator's Modded Customize is based off of the old Customize 1.22, it still stores its data in the old locations. You can check to see if you already have the symlinks in place either through SSH or using Term-v100. Navigate to /var/root
      cp /var/root
      and list the contents
      ls -la
      If you have symlinks properly set up you will have two entries
      Library -> /private/var/mobile/Library
      Media -> /private/var/mobile/Media
      If you are missing one or they don't point to anything (missing arrows) then you will need to move the folders from root to mobile and create symlinks to point to the new locations. We can do this two ways: Dan's symlink script (recommended) or manually by using Terminal commands.
      • Dan's Symlink Script (recommended) - Install the Symlink Media/Library Creator script from the Danimator's Repo section in Installer
      • Manual - Please find a guide to running terminal commands (either through SSH or the Term-v100 app). You will need to run the following commands: BUT Make an empty Media folder there first if you don't already see one there or the scripts will fail.
        cp -R /private/var/root/Media /private/var/mobile/
        rm -r /private/var/root/Media
        ln -s /private/var/mobile/Media /private/var/root/Media
        cp -R /private/var/root/Library /private/var/mobile/
        rm -r /private/var/root/Library
        ln -s /private/var/mobile/Library /private/var/root/Library
        The cp commands copy the directories to their new locations, the rm commands remove the original directories, and the ln commands create the symlinks to the new destinations.
    5. Add the following repo to your Installer sources:
    6. Install Danimator's Customize 9.3 (and Danimator's "Sticker" Theme Pack.
    7. Return to the springboard and run Customize; it should run and crash three times before loading correctly. The reason it crashes is because it needs to make all the backup images and directories to restore from.
    8. If Customize crashes more than 3 times, you probably have to fix the permissions (they should install fine by default, but crazier things have happened.) This can be done through Terminal commands or with WinSCP.
      • Terminal - connect through SSH or open up Term-v100 and run the following commands
        chmod -R 755 /Applications/
        chmod -R 755 /var/mobile/Library/Customize
      • WinSCP - connect through WinSCP and navigate to /Applications, right-click on, and under the Permissions section put 0755 in the Octal box (the check-boxes should fill themselves). Check the box to "Set group, owner, and permissions recursively" and press OK.
        Navigate to /var/mobile/Library, right-click on Customize, and do the same thing as above, but set the permissions to 755 (remember to check the box for recursive!) and press OK.
      Now try running Customize, and hopefully it should start up in no time.

    If you are sure you have performed all of the above steps correctly and you are still having issues, please send me a PM with your issue and I'll do my best to help you out. Hope this guide helps!

    Now, If you've installed MANUALLY, and not from the repo's just run the following commands in terminal and it should be fine:

    /bin/chmod -R 755 /Applications/
    /bin/chmod +s /Applications/

    Note: If you've previously had your customize icon hidden with apps such as "Poof" or "Categories", etc. Make sure you unhide it before installing or else your icon will remain hidden after install.
