I wanted a theme that worked with the Banners Notification on the iPhone 4 Firmware 5.0.1. The Gimme 4 theme in black that I found on a forum did not have the Drop Win icon so a made one.
To install you need Cydia, Open SSH, Filezilla then ftps to /private/var/mobile/Library/SBSettings/Themes and put the extracted Gimme 4-1_5.0.1_TT_edit folder there. Rename it to something simple like “Gimme 4″ if you like!To use this I found I had to go to SBSetting and configure the iOS 5 Notification section and set it to Separate List “ON”. Then set the notifications toggles. That is to say that having Separate List “OFF” with Using (existing) Windows Toggles did not work.
In short, use Separate List.
I have tried a fair few apps to sync files but the best has to be the ones based on Rsync.
If you have an rsync server (I have a managed one). Then this is a rock solid way to sync a directory of data to your phone.
Acrosync: Claims to be the only rsync app for iPhone and I could not disprove that. Works well and has a Pro version with no adverts.
rsync *: The market has loads of rsync apps but I happen to use rsync backup. It just works fine.
I tried Wifi Syncr which will handle Windows shares and is really cunning and flexible but I found that it struggled to sync medium sized (100MB) files as does the iPhone as it happens.Anyhow, I also just wanted a way to quickly ftp photos and ‘ting to the rsync server so I use an old favorite, DropUpLoad.
For iPhone you have what Android could really do with, OPlayer. This iPhone app is pretty simple in that it combines a video player with an interface to browse network shares. The major flaw is that you can’t add anything to iTunes or Camera Roll. Even with iFile this does not really work.
If I wanted an rsync server on my LAN I would just use Vbox and Ubuntu. Kind of daft to have to run it every time but I have tried rsync server for Windows with cygwin and all the rest but setup and config it just too much of a stove pipe system. I like stuff to be portable and easy to rebuild, Vbox with Ubuntu does that.
