Customize 2.0 got a big update. There are some nice new features but there are also some that you simple better not activate. As a result of trying to get it to work i had to restore 3 times. Every time I found a new bug. I’ll give you a heads up on what all the new features are but i will also warn you what to avoid if you don’t want to restore.

The new features are:

  • The ability to comment on almost everything in the theme browser.
  • FreeBoard (5 icon dock, wallpaper, hide icon labels) !! (read warnings)
  • Auto-update utility
  • Contact SpicyChicken (the developer) via the application

Now the warnings !!!!

  • Do not activate Freeboard if you have more then 70 app’s installed on your iPhone!
  • Do not activate Freeboard if you have KATE !

If you will do it, you will have to restore. I tried every fix that i can think of to set things right again, but nothing worked.

Customize is still working fine, as long as you don’t activate the Freeboard or 5 icon dock!

1) Locate and install Customize.

2) Let’s have a look at the FreeBoard Prefs. (you can activate it , show wallpaper, hide icon labels and enable the five icond dock)

The phone will work fine if you enable this all, but if you ever need to reboot, there’s a really big chance that your iPhone or iPod touch won’t boot anymore !! SPOD (Spinning wheel of death)

I strongly recommend to not use the FreeBoard untill in a later release!

3) Let’s have a look at the other new feature, the comments. Whenever you now go to a theme you have a extra tab Comments, it’s just below the size information of the them.

4) The last new feature is the about screen.

This little app is available in the Installer.app through the ModMyIfone packaging source, see our sources page.

    ok .. go into Customize and clear the cache (under preferences) respring and restart customize it will give you an auto-update message.. click update.. and then respring.. then turn on Summerboard in customize or smb then re-BOOT.
    all your appz will be fine now.. (this auto-update allows summerboard and freeboard to run together. ) getting rid of the app limit. now go to freeboard turn on and 5 icon dock.. then respring AND re-boot.. wallah 5 icon dock.. all apps good.. l8

    :twisted: There’s a real conflict between Costumize (summerboard) and Intelliscreen. I belive that the bug is with the lock screen implementation (or somewere around). Beside those conflicts, the new update is very unstable. The intelliscreen fix worked for me (I’ve heard that many people had have troubles with it). Since Intelliscreen is always fixing and updating the application, I belive that they will come up for something good. I just hope that people of thyspicychicken will do the same, beacuse that update had ALLOT OF CRASHED IPHONES. :neutral:

    I’ve installed the customize update, and it’s really messed with my apps. I tried a reset and that removed all of my settings for all of the other apps, but it’s not changed anything else. I’m still having problems with it. I also tried akedo1’s advice but no change. I can’t change my wallpaper and silly stuff like that. Before I go for a full restore and unlock again, is there anything else I can try?

    Hey, I’m not sure which category to place this comment to ask for help but can anyone please help me with the ShirtyCity theme on the Customize. I really love it. Can’t seem to apply it after downloading. Please help.

    Thanks in advance!
