How to remove multitasking, folders?
« on: January 15, 2012, 09:56:40 AM »
Sorry to bother you guys with questions again but I'm new to whited00r.

1. I was wondering what is the .plist equivalent of Configurator which is disabled on Whited00r 5.1 Beta 2 as I want to disable multitasking and folders as I don't use them and enable shadows. It's doesn't seem to be in N82AP.plist like ios4.

2. If I remove multitasking, do I still get the app switcher so I can respring easily?

3. If I remove multitasking, can I still keep my rotation lock?

Thanks in advance. I have an iPhone 3G 8GB on Whited00r 5.1 Beta 2

It's just that I don't see my self using it, I mean, if I did use multitasking, it would only be to get to an app quickly rather than returning to a half done task (If you get what I mean  :-\), but Whited00r is as fast as it is, so for me, it is an uneeded substrate. It doesn't mean I won't ever use multitasking on Whited00r again, it's just that I want to have control over whats is enabled so thats why I'm looking for the plist. to configure (If there is one).

i dont know about plist, but download backgrounder, it will help you get control over whats enabled and disabled....
if you want backgrounder find the whited00r version in [Official] Whited00r Recommended/Compatible Tweaks, Themes, Etc.
or if you want the latest working one click the link below my signature

Thanks. So will Configurator work on the next/final release of Whited00r 5.1? What was the reason behind disabling it?

Go to /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries and look for backgrounder.dylib and rename it to backgrounder.disabled.   Then respring, and your multitasking will be disabled, but your app switcher will still show up (rotation lock and quick respring)
You can do that for any of the .dylibs there.   That's how configurator works.  It disables those by renaming them.

Thank you so much! What can I do to enable shadows, transparency and disable spotlight! Is it the same way, do they have a .dylib?

Enabling shadows is trickier.    There should be a folder called "Resources" in /var/mobile and an image called competing like "homescreeniconshadow.png" move that to /System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app

Transparency is by editing /var/mobile/Preferences/com.darlo770.  (either multitasking or folders).post. And changing the <false/>  for effects and transparency to "<true/>"

Spotlight is a demon, and do you know how to use terminal?

make sure you create a backup before deleting any Daemons (lol demons hehe)
Daemons are found in System/Library/LaunchDaemons

com.apple.search.plist
[remove if you don't user Spotlight search]

com.apple.apsd.plist
[remove if you don't use PushNotifications]

com.apple.dataaccess.dataaccessd.plist
[remove if you don't use Exchange or Google Sync]

com.apple.datamigrator.plist
[remove if you don't want to import contacts from SIM card]

com.apple.racoon.plist
[remove if you don't use VNP: Virtual Private Networks]

com.apple.MobileInternetSharing.plist
[remove if you don't use Tethering]

com.apple.AOSNotifications.plist
[remove if you don't use MobileMe Sync]

com.apple.mobile.obliteration.plist
[remove if you don't need to delete data from Exchange, from Reset menu or with the function of failed passcode]

Better use " No Spotlight Keyboard" from cydia,it is very nice option to remove spotlight...

The Whited00r Team needs to buy iPods 1G/2G & iPhones 2G/3G for testing WD 6.1 Beta, Apps & Features. We need your help to keep WD Free.

I was typing fast on my phone ;)

But, a more elegant solution to daemons handling,  is a terminal command to disable them (which is why I asked if he knew how to use terminal) .   No file system editing needed. :)
Code: [Select]
su
alpine
launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.searchd.plist

And to enable it again, just use load instead of unload

Edit: even if you use that tweak, the daemon is still running, slowing you down ;)  so install the tweak and disable the daemon one way or another :)

This is just what I needed, thanks but hmmm...There doesn't seem to be any "homescreeniconshadow.png" in var/mobile/Resources, there is just a bunch of .plist daemons there. Any ideas?

Don't worry guys I've known how to delete/unload LaunchDaemons (I've got about 30 as of now), and use terminal since long ago.  8), It is just that I am unfamiliar with where things are located in the Whited00r firmware.

EDIT: Got it, navigated to System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app and there it was: WallpaperIconShadowDisabled.png --> Renamed it to WallpaperIconShadow.png and trying it now. Can't believe I missed that
