Just jailbroke my iphone4 and installed notifier but it's not showing the new mail icon on the status bar. Anybody else got it to work or know of any over apps that is similar?

i spoke too soon!

i now installed "Status Notifier" rather than "Notifier" and it fixes it. Little envelope in the status bar!! :)

If you don't want to install Status Notifier fix since it installs a whole bunch of **** you might not want on your phone. Just do this.


  1. Install/queue Notifier 3.1-2 (the one without Status in front of it)
  2. Make sure cydia is set to Developer (No Filters) you can change this by going to the Manage tab in Cydia and hitting the settings button on the top left.
  3. Do a refresh in Cydia (might be optional)
  4. Search for and install libstatusbar package.

Then everything should work fine.

Now if someone would update the Notifier icons for the Retina display it would be awesome.

Is there much of a difference between "Notifier" and StatusNotifier" apps?

Yeah Notifier works with iOS 4 and Status Notifier doesn't. :) Back in the day when they used to both work Status Notifier had more features, but they are basically both the same thing.

I like the simple style of the original StatusNotifier, i wish the developer was still working on this one.. Unfortunately, it throws the phone into safe mode on 4.0 :(

So I've tried my hand at making some higher resolution graphics for my status bar and here are my findings so far:

All the default apple icons that appear everywhere have 2 versions, a normal one and one with "@2x" after the name, presumably to indicate the higher resolution for the ip4 display. The interesting part is that the iPhone knows to use the larger graphic in the same display area on the screen.

If I try to make a higher resolution icon and replace the default notifier icon with my new one it will display it but at its regular size (which looks huge and bleeds way over the status bar edges). What we need is an update so that the notifier will pick up on graphics labeled Default_NMAIL1@2x.png and use them like the rest of the apple coded apps can.

I found out the same thing. Any devs here that can make the change? I need my high res icons!
