    I have been fooling with Erica's springboard preferences tool, and found "SBFakeBars." I would guess it is something like SBFakeTime, but there is no SBFakeBarsString. What does this setting do?

    Adds fake bars? Signal bars, that is.

    That's what I guessed, but it doesn't do that on my iPod, and what would be the point on an iPhone? Maybe someone with an iPhone could try it?

    It is bundled in Erica's Utilities, and is the "sb" command.

    sb never really worked for me, you should running this:

    plutil -c xml1 /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist


    and then editing the plist yourself.

    Thanks for the tip, but sb has worked fine for me so far. I will try that if it stops working.

    Does anybody have further info on the question?

    i assume it's the image of the fakebars that you can select in an extended preferences type situation. but it's just a guess.
