    Hmmm...iFuntastic 3 seems to have caused some problems on my phone...I replaced some of the icons with some of Louie Mantia's icons, using iFuntastic as my file manager, but for some of them, the words under the icons disappeared. For the rest, it had the full name of the app under the icon, ie, "MobileSMS" instead of just SMS. How can I change this back? Also, I tried unchecking the "Show names under icons" box, but that only removed the names for the icons on the upper part of the springboard, not the last row. How can I get rid of all the names altogether?

    From my previous post:

    The best way to do this:

    Make sure iFuntastic is closed. Go to your HD>Applications>iFuntastic Support (folder) and open a text file called HomeScreenArrangement.txt.
    You will now see a list like "com.apple...." . Type a new name after the "newName=" replacing the default name apps to your custom name. Make sure there is a space after the"=" sign.
    When finished, save your changes.
    Now open iFuntastic. Go to Home Screen. You should now see the updated app names, yes? Now click "Update iPhone". Your iPhone will prompt you to "slide to unlock". There you have it!!

    Does anyone know how to do this without iFuntastic? I've discovered I really hate the new version of it and want to avoid using it at all costs.

    if you know the terminal commands you can change the file that you would be changing in ifuntastic. What those commands are, I'm not sure, but I have seen it somewhere. I'll look around and see if I can find it. I think it was on modmyiphone.com
