HOW TO:
Change every instance of "FaceTime" to "SexyTime" in these files:

/System/Library/Frameworks/AddressBookUI.framework/English.lproj/vc~AB.strings
/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Conference.framework/English.lproj/vc~Conference.strings
/private/var/stash/Applications/Preferences.app/English.lproj/vc~Restrictions.strings

Have a sexy time! Thanks for nothing, I figured it out myself! :p











OLD:
I've scoured the iOS 4 filesystem on my iPhone 4 in search of a clue. I've changed all of my localization .string files to say SexyTime instead of FaceTime. I've tried hexediting MobilePhone and Springboard, but nothing I try will change the word "FaceTime" on anything but the Settings->Restrictions section and the button in Contact video.

I don't know much about how applications work, but upon inspection, MobilePhone and Springboard seem to put "VIDEO_LABEL" in place of where the word FaceTime goes, yet the localization files have to strings for VIDEO_LABEL.

FaceTime is also referred to as "Video Calling" and "vc" a few times, but nothing I try works. Anyone have any better ideas about how to do this? I'm at the end of my wit and only half way to full SexyTime.

The problem areas are:

1. When someone calls you from FaceTime it still says "so and so wants to FaceTime"
2. When I miss a FaceTime call, it still says "Missed FaceTime"
3. The bottom center button shown during a phone call still says "FaceTime"
4. During the initiation of a FaceTime call, the top still says "FaceTime" before "connecting..."
5. In Settings -> Phone, the switch still says "FaceTime"

The FaceTime button SHOULD be in

/System/Library/AccessibilityBundles/MobilePhone.axbundle/English.lproj/Accessibility.strings

But it's not! It has all the other buttons, and I can change their names, but the FaceTime button isn't in here! :(

Just imagine every time you see FaceTime, it says SexyTime instead. ;)

I don't feel like editing all of these screenshots to get rid of phone numbers and stuff.
