    This replaces the original customize app to make it work on ur ipod now

    PLEASE READ ALL STEPS CAREFULLY IN ORDER TO HAVE A SUCCESSFUL WORKING CUSTOMIZE APP

    WORKS WITH 1.1.1 AND 1.1.2 Jailbroken

    :)this allows u to drag ur icons around in any order you want in the customize app:)

    make sure u already have the original customize app (from installer)

    *and that u change ur N45AP.plist with iorder or something*

    Customize.app (ipod edition): http://www.megaupload.com/?d=T5VZFAE5

    How to replace N45AP.plist with your original one
    (if you already did this skip to BASIC STEPS)


    1. Get iorder from this site: http://iorderapp.googlepages.com/download
    2. Install it and make icon order
    3. Save the n45ap.plist somewhere u can find (i used desktop)
    4. STFP into ur ipod (i used winscp)
    5. clik and drag ur NEW n45ap.plist (from ur desktop or wherever u saved it) into this
    path: System/library/CoreServices/Sprinboard.app
    6. It should ask you if you want to replace the existing one..clik yes
    7. Now on to the basic steps...


    Basic Steps

    1. Connect Ipod
    2. Open a client (i used winscp)
    3. find the Applications folder
    4. Go into your Apps folder
    5. Download the NEW customize app (if u havent already)
    6. find it and unzip it
    7. drag the new customize app FOLDER (not ZIP) into your applicatoins folder
    8. Say yes to all when it asks you if you want to replace ur original one
    9. Exit winscp
    10. Reboot your ipod
    11. YOU"RE DONE :)

    WARNING: ONCE YOU GET THIS VERSION OF CUSTOMIZE DON'T UPDATE IT FROM INSTALLER (ITS MESSES UP UR TOUCH) ITS FIXABLE BUT IT TAKES A WHILE!


    Differences:
    The differences from the customize from installer app is:
    1. You can change number of icons on docks
    2. Works
    3. More ppl have successfully make it work

    this one actually allows u to drag the icons around and reorder ur icons
    and u dont need to tapp the chicken u just had to open customize like 4 to 5 times and it will work
    tapping the chicken was a joke lol

    Mmmm weird stuff..
    I've just replaced the contents of Customize.app with that other file's content..

    connect ipod
    log into winscp (or any other client)
    go into application folder find customize
    download the new customize folder and unzip the folder
    then drag the customize folder (the folder inside the zip folder)into the application folder
    say yes to all to replace ur old one
    and thats it
    it works
    first try

    edit: make sure u have the old customize app (from installer)

    Just like the other version of Customize.app hacked for the touch, this one works straight away for some, but only after some effort for others. Who knows why ...

    Anyway, apart from 'tapping the chicken' up to 20 times, try editing your N45AP.plist file (swap a couple of the Dock entries, they're easiest), save and replace. This finally launched it for me. And once you get it working the first time, it never crashes again.

    Ya, I can't get it to work either. I've tried everthing here and on the ipod touch fans forum.
    I'm no expert, but there must be some bug somewhere that is causing this. It might have to take a whole new app to rearrange the icons (besides editing the N45AP.plist file).

    Does Customize still change your Music and Video icons to just "iPod"?
