The previous version just doesn’t work on Jailbroken iPod touch 1.12.

Today a new version of Cutomize is released and I have it running smoothly. See? I used it to customize my Dock to have 5 apps. You can have up to 9 icons (yes, they overlap), or none at all. This and other customizations for iPod touch, including re-ordering icons, are now possible in this excellent app.

Go bling it. Installer-> Utilities: Customize

Checklist:

It’s normal for Customize to seemingly hang and then break out and return to the Springboard the first time you launch it. Just re-launch it a second time, and wait patiently (about 30 seconds). It will eventually loads and runs. Customize will load swiftly from the third launch onwards.

  1. I have tried three sources that list the Customize app. When I added them to my Sources list and refreshed, I got lots of other apps, but no Customize. These sources are:

    conceitedsoftware.com/iphone/beta
    psmxy.org/iphone-apps
    touchrepo.com/repo.xml

    Where can I find a source?

  2. I get my Customize from the second source you listed above, http://psmxy.org/iphone-apps/ . 🙂 That’s the very popular STE Packaging repository.

    Did you refresh your sources after adding it? Look for Customize under the Utilities category.

  3. I just checked the version of http://psmxy.org/iphone-apps/ that I had installed and found to my disgust that I had capitalized the p in iphone.

    Made the change and no more problems. Thanks for your help

  4. Haha. “Auto-Capitalization” can be annoying when typing an url address but is otherwise handy. You can disable it in Settings -> General: Keyboard

  5. hey rupert, may i know the theme you were using in the picture above? thanks 🙂

  6. Hi Alex! That’s not a Theme. It’s just an old Wallpaper I had.

  7. hey rupert,

    Do you still have the wallpaper? I love the colour and the style of it.
    So I’m wondering if you can give me a link to where i can download this. thanks !

  8. I certanly do, Alex. Yah, I liked the style very much too. Here, enjoy it.

  9. i’ve made the customize icon invisible along with the rest of my “custome” apps, how do i get them back? please help, thanks

    Hmmm… Customize lets you hide itself eh? That’s silly programming. 🙂

    I think one way would be to uninstall Customize? *Hopefully* it is smart enough to revert all changes to default before uninstalling itself!

    But I think you best bet is ask the author, hopefully he’ll realize the silliness about it.

  12. I got customizer installed but it wont let me change my walpaper and there are no other things I can use for anything except default icons…

  13. @323k13l

    What’s your firmware version?

    In any case, you can manually make the changes without Customize.

  14. Thanks for the wiki, but where do i get to that on my ipod?

  15. @323k13l

    Oh, how silly; they omitted that critical info in the wiki. 🙂

    All those files goes into the following folder:

    /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/

  16. Hi there,

    Marvelous website, well done!

    One question: I have an ipod touch and can’t find customize (I don’t have “utilities” in categories actually)…any clue?

  17. ok I have it now with touchrepo.com/repo.xml

    thanks anyway, wonderful job 😉

  18. ok I have it now with touchrepo.com/repo.xml

    I installed customized, but I can’t have 5 icons in the dock with 1.1.3, is it normal?

  19. @x-or

    did you install the Community Sources package or updated it?

    That’s right. You can’t have 5 docked icons in 1.1.3 firmware.

  20. sorry to post again…I know it’s not a forum…please forgive me :p

    I think that any changes made in Customize are not showing up on my Ipod touch 1.1.3, do you think there is a problem of compatibility? I may do something wrong but what?

    Thanks for your help

  21. Customize ver 1.2.1 isn’t compatible with 1.1.3, but there’s a work-around. You’ll have to search for it in places like http://www.ipodtouchfans.com/forums/

    @codemancs
    You gotta jailbreak your ipod to get installer. https://rupertgee.wordpress.com/2008/02/27/114-jailbreak-ziphone/
    Don’t worry about the March update, it’s been fixed. Good luck!
    Then add: ipodtouched.net/repo.xml and then you can find the modded customize.
