[How-To] Customize your Status Bar

Here is a little tutorial for begginers which will permit you to customize your Status Bar.
For iPhone and iPod Touch, the application Make It Mine is not required.


Required :
  • WinterBoard
  • A picture .png format with trasnparent background if possible
  • Size : 50×20 or 60×20 maxi !Test by yourself !
1) Create a new folder with the name you want like "name.theme"
2) Inside this folder, create 2 folders called Folders and Bundles.
  • Folders for iPod Touch.
  • Bundles for iPhone.


Inside this folder, create a folder called SpringBoard.app and paste 2 pictures (the same!) called Default_CARRIER_IPOD.png and FSO_CARRIER_IPOD.png


1) Find the name of your carrier in /System/Library/Carrier Bundles
example : com.apple.ATT_US
2) Then, create into the empty folder of Bundles, a folder with the same name as your carrier
Here it is com.apple.ATT_US
3) Paste 2 pictures (the same) in this folder called like your carrier
for the example, it is Default_CARRIER_ATT.png and FSO_CARRIER_ATT.png

Your Theme is finished, you just have to transfer with SSH in /private/var/stash/theme.xxx
and apply in WinterBoard.
If you use Make It Mine, think to tick Carrier option by default !

    It seems that 2 exploits were found by Nishant Das Patnaik which would permit to jailbreak Firmware 3.1.3 but with the use of Safari, then without any computer. Discover these exploits here.

    VANCOUVER, this wednesday, within the framework of the annual contest Pwn2Own (gathering researchers and hackeurs in safety system) still showed that it could pirate an iPhone not jailbroken, to exploit the faults of the Safari navigator on Mac and Internet to explore, Firefox on Windows Seven.

Miller refused to provide details on her exploit, but said that the target computer was compromised after having visited a Web site lodging the malevolent code. Peter Vreugdenhil, a researcher in safety independent of the Netherlands, will receive 10.000 $ to have to circumvent the safety devices in IE 8. The Nile, research director based in United Kingdom MWR InfoSecurity, also gained 10.000$ to have trrouvé a fault in Firefox. He refused to give his family name. As a student in data processing at the University of Oldenburg in Germany last year it gained 15.000 dollars for the exploits which it showed in 8 IE, Safari and Firefox.


    And finally, Ralf Philipp Weinmann, of the University of Luxembourg, and Vincenzo Iozzo, of Zynamics German company, will share the price 15,000$ to have pirated the iPhone. They thus could steal (in 20 seconds) the contents of base SMS of your iDevice! It simply was necessary that the iPhone visit a Web site with the malevolent code, exploutant a fault in the numerical signature of the code of Apple.
    This attack proceeds without you seeing it, even if that concerns that base SMS for the moment, it can as well steal you of the data like your photographs, images, to have access to your contatcts…

      Can this be used with my 'accidentally restored' 3.1.3/non-jailbroken/running BB 5.12.xx iPhone?

      Does this also fix the WiFi problem (WiFi not connecting/requiring a reboot)?

      MuscleNerd is looking for through his twitter some iPhone 3G and 3GS to test a permanent unlock !
       Tests seem to start, a new unlock tool for baseband 05.12.01 available soon ?

      Update 2 : Pretty good news...

      According to iSpazio blog and a certain David Lim, they announce that Dev Team has finalized the exploit found by Sherif Hashim about unlocking the baseband 05.12.01 with Firmware 3.1.3.
      Everything should be based on the old tool Yellowsn0w developed in the past by DevTeam.
      But, it would be a shame to reveal these new tools when a new Firmware is going to come out !
