    JB- App questions

    Advertisement



    Hi all,

    Ok so I've had the JB done for over a week and have been messing around with some of the apps and features. It's really amazing, but I do have a few questions:
    1. Is there a "folder" app where I can organize my desktop by putting certain apps in a particular "folder?" I was going to try "Categories" but the reviews didn't seem that great.
    2. What is the best free program for opening .xls programs
    3. What can I use to display unread messages on my home lock screen? I currently have the Status Notifier installed which shows an icon in the status bar, but I was looking for something that will also display messages on the main lock screen. I tried "Notifier Widget" but it removes my wallpaper when I download it.
    4. Are there any more generic "alert" packages for SMS or Ringtones? I'm not looking for anything crazy, just some additional alerts because the factory settings are so limited.
    5 What is the best was to create a custom ringtone? I tried "Ringtones3" however after I run the application, the files do not show in my ringtone folder. Maybe its not compatible with 3.1.2.
    6. Is there a wayt to get the weather and/or temp to display on the lock screen?
    7. What is the difference between a source and a package? How do I know when I will need a specific source.
    8 Are there any programs and/or sources that typically should NOT be dowloaded. For example the vWallpaer as I learned last week
    9. I tried helping a buddy JB his 3G iphone 3.1.,2 but after we click "make it rain" his screen remains stuck with the itunes icon. Any ideas? We trid at least 5 times only to end up having to do a complete restore back to original software.
    10. Is there a way to modify the vibrate setting? I would like to have the phone either vibrate longer or vibrate 2 or 3 times when I get a message. I never feel the alert the way it comes as a default.
    11. How can you tell if there is a price for an app? For example under xsellize, there is ClearCam, but there is no price linked with it. I think the app is $10 after a 15 day trial

    Sorry for the abundance of questions and thanks in advance for everyones help!

    PS: DO NOT do a "rest all" from the settings menu You'll most likely need to restore everything afterwards.

    1 - Categories (available in Cydia)
    2 - Not sure. Try FileViewer (available in Cydia)
    3 - LockInfo (available in Cydia)
    4 - Open Cydia, go to Search and type in SMS tone. You should get a ton to choose from.
    5 - Check HERE. Look at grapemist's post (the last one)
    6 - AnyCity Live Weather (available in Cydia)
    7 - A source contains packages and a package is what you actually download. Only way you'll know is if you're searching online for jailbroken apps, and you're instructed to add a specific/certain source to access the package.
    8 - Only way to know is to ask online, or check the package/change log to see if your firmware is supported.
    9 - Try THIS video
    10 - I've attached a tutorial

    3 - LockInfo (available in Cydia) Thanks!
    4 - Open Cydia, go to Search and type in SMS tone. You should get a ton to choose from. Yes I've done this, but was hoping there was a package of many standard ringtones and alerts. No biggie though
    5 - Check HERE. Look at grapemist's post (the last one) I'll check it out!
    6 - AnyCity Live Weather (available in Cydia) Thank you!
    7 - A source contains packages and a package is what you actually download. Only way you'll know is if you're searching online for jailbroken apps, and you're instructed to add a specific/certain source to access the package. I see!
    8 - Only way to know is to ask online, or check the package/change log to see if your firmware is supported. ok
    9 - Try THIS video We tried this, the only difference was we didnt do a restore in the beginning (after the upgrade). I'll try again later this week
    10 - I've attached a tutorial
    Great thanks again!

    Any ideas why my wallpaper dissappear everytime I install an app that displays messages on the lock screen? So far I've tried LockScreen and Notifier Widget. It happens on both.

    What is SSH and WinSCP for Windows?

    Your wallpaper disappears? Do you have "User Wallpaper" selected in WinterBoard?

    SSH - HERE
    WinSCP - HERE

    cjeezy - I don't know why your lockscreen goes black, doesn't make sense...what exactly are you downloading and setting? there may be two apps that are conflicting causing this.
    HERE is a good tutorial to get the LockScreen stuff working. And yes, AnyCity DOES display the weather on the lockscreen, you have to SSH into your iPhone to set the City, that video should help you on that. (check out my lockscreen and homescreen)

    I like your home screen man. Is there a way for me to change the slider "text" only on the lock screen while keeping my slider icon the same? Anyways, Im not sure what the heck is going on with the wallpaper. It's just a simple camera roll pic. I dont have anything running that would conflict with it. The interesting thing is that the wallpaer is displayed on every page except the lock screen lol. Oh well not a big deal. Is there a different app I can try...maybe one thats free. I'll read up on SSH and go from there.

    The slider text, no problem, I've attached a tutorial and the file you'll need for that

    There must be something you're setting that is causing the blank/black screen on your lock screen. Tell me what you've downloaded and what you've set in WinterBoard and I'll try to trouble shoot it for you.

    11. xSellize allows you to download cracked versions of those paid apps, so there shouldn't be any price or trial times on those apps.

    9. Restart your computer, I had the same problems until I restarted my computer and then it went flawless.

    cjeezy - If that's all you have selected in WinterBoard, then I don't know why your Lockscreen is changing. Try installing that AnyCity Weather theme, there's instructions on the download page on how to get it working, it also lists other recommended packages that work well with it (Notifier, 20sec LockScreen etc.), it might just fix your issue.

    NOTE: But IF you do install AnyCity Weather along with it's listed/recommended apps, un-install 'Status Notifier", because it might conflict with Notifier.
