Change labels in settings using iFile

By | January 4, 2014

When you jailbreak your device you are expected to have full control. With the use of the cydia app iFile you can change labels in settings to say whatever you want. Take a look at the screenshot below and you will understand what we mean.

Now how do you do this? Thanks to a user at the reddit jailbreak subreddit here are some step by step tips.

Edited a plist with iFile.

var/stash/Applications/Preferences.app/Settings.plist

Be sure to back the original file up before you start messing with it. I just named it Settings-old.plist, copied it, then renamed the copy back to Settings.plist.

Using the property list editor, you want to look for ‘label’ strings amongst the many dictionaries in the ‘items’ array. You can also delete entire dictionaries and their corresponding labels will be removed from Settings.

Oh, and to change the title at the top of the Settings app, just edit the ‘title’ string at the root of the plist.Using iFile to change labels

Pretty basic tip by using the iFile cydia app to add even more customization to your newly jailbroken iOS 7 device. Hope this helps some of you!
