So I normally Jailbreak my iphone, install winterboard, a few themes and go about my business with a phone that begins to lag dramatically. Well this time I got sick of it and instead of going the same old route, I looked at alternative ways of customizing a jailbroke iphone 3g and wanted to share my experience as well as newly aquired knowledge. I found a program "Total Commander" available for xp and along with the T-POT plugin, I was able to get all the asthetics I wanted without having to use winterboard. I found icons that were of higher quality than the stock icons and used the program to change them. With the exception of the weather and safari icons, the replacement icons look the same, but if you look carefully you can see textures (grille more prominant in preferences icon, rough texture in grey portion of camera icon). I didn't think it would really make a difference but suprisingly my phone icons now look crisper. Another cool aspect of total commander was the GUI interface that allowed for dragging files to the locations, I no longer needed to ssh into my phone or do anything over wi-fi. Everything was done with USB. Macbook pro with bootcamp...booted into xp. Installed total commander with t-pot plugin Icons can be found at http://mantia.me/iphone/ (Look for Neue Icons) The dock can be found at http://www.appledailytimes.com/apps/touchdock2.zip It is not a true reflective dock but a static image...still better than nothing (make two copies of it after downloading) Dock png files located on iphone at /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/ Replaced SBDockBG.png and SBDockBG2.png (renamed originals - installed the two copies of new dock) Location of directories (for changing icons - just look for icon.png) private\var\mobile\applications (for app store applications) private\var\stash\applications.qrqstw (for stock applications) When you've changed everything, just respring (or reboot) My Iphone is now JB with just poof, cydia, and rename installed. No lag.
