    Apologies if this has been posted already.
    In the BigBoss repo, for peanuts, it's a steal. This video shows it.
    I never had any use for Voice Control, so the ability to remove it, is great, and I'm finding that after turning off that and wallpaper, My iPhone 4 seems to be even smoother (It could be placebo, but I'm not so sure). Animations seem to be ultra smooth. :)

    Having no homescreen wallpaper(with the accompanying greyed icon text) is strangely liberating, after searching for the ultimate wallpapers for a while now.

    It's garbage. I want HDR without upgrading to crappy 4.1. This doesn't enable HDR.

    I don't think it ever purported to provide HDR where HDR was not supported. It only purports to disable HDR where it is available.

    My only concern is, if I do a backup with a few of the MyOS features disabled (Voice Control, Wallpaper, and Unified iPod), when I upgrade to 4.2, from that backup, will those mess with the new, OS?

    I doubt it. I can't be sure. But I don't think it will.

    The settings shouldn't be stored in a place that gets backed up by iTunes. Nevertheless, you might want to ask the dev, see if s/he knows?

    Generally, plist edits like that do indeed become stored in backups, yes.

    Really? I thought they were the exception rather than the rule. Oh well, that is something I've learnt today.

    Nah, they tend to stay. I remember when you could only get the battery percentage in your toolbar from a Cydia tweak, for example, and it would stay there on the stock firmware if you restored from the backup.

    Ahh well, I'll take your word for it, because I do remember that MIM is a notable example of JB stuff carrying through on backups.

    Just be warned, this is not compatible with Multicleaner, it will remove it once you install MyOS and vice versa.

    If it helps, I removed spotlight with a tweak (can't remember which) when I was using 4.0. I backed up using pkgbackup before upgrading to 4.2 and when I reloaded my stuff, the spotlight was still gone.

    Not sure if it's the same situation with HDR, voice control, etc.

    OP, what did you use for your 5 icon dock? Did you make them all fit nicely with something like shrink?

    Thanks.

    That looks like standard icon sizes to me.

    that is because nospot is a tweak that pkgbackup backed up, and when you restored the tweak was restored
