    Hi, i've looked everywhere but couldn't find how to change the badge counter of the sms.app from right to left because i'm using a dickflow theme and gets hidden under the phone.app.
    Thanks

    Make a theme containing the directory structure:

    Bundles > com.apple.springboard > SBBadgeBG.png

    That's to replace the badge.

    To change the position you probably have to setup an Info.plist (I don't know if this will work, but its along the lines of what you need to do):

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0"><dict>
    
    <key>BadgeStyle</key>
    <string> [[Insert your alignment/position settings here]]</string>
    
    </dict></plist>

    Eer the string takes CSS syntax. So it would be something like text-align: left; or position:absolute;top:374px;left:0;

    Of course those are just example, you can trial and error it though.
