New to SiNful iPhone. You all
have the best of the 'unapproved' repos that I've added so far. I've tried a handful of the frowned upon repos and SiNful is the best of them.
Anyway, I'm in this particular thread because I happened across it via a Google search. I searched for "cydia save icon layout"
because every time I install/uninstall something via Cydia and it asks me to respring, my icons get rearranged. This is very annoying. I keep thinking that surely someone has written a damn app or something that will back up the state file and restore it automagically or something but I haven't found anything. What I have
found in regards to this thread is that Backboard does not work reliably on ios 5 apparently. I read that somewhere else, and then someone else said that it works, so I tried it. It saved my first "theme", but since then, it won't save anything. I hit the + symbol, type the name, click save, and nothing shows up. So I don't think Backboard is viable. Also, in this thread, I've seen reference to IconState.plist. This is not the correct file. On my ios 5.1.1 iPod touch 3g, it's IconSupportState.plist in the same directory /var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard. You will notice that file updates the modified time every time you respring whereas IconState.plist doesn't. Copying IconSupportState.plist to another directory and then copying it back after my icons get
works fine. I just wish there was a tweak that would auto do it or something. If this is all old news, my apologies. I just wanted to update this in case anyone else stumbles across it via Google.
