Daily Tip: How to rearrange your status bar icons with ArrangeStatusBar [jailbreak]

ArrangeStatusBar Jailbreak

Maybe you're used to the signal bars being on the right of the screen like they are in Blackberry OS, and are curious how to rearrange the status bar icons on your iPhone? Good news -- there's a Jailbreak for that! And we'll show you how after the break!

ArrangeStatusBar is a simple little tweak that allows you to rearrange your status bar icons to whatever your liking may be. This may be great for users that currently migrated from another OS and are used to a different configuration.

Once installed, just hold down on a status bar icon and move it in whatever position you'd like. And if you ever want to restore to the default arrangement again just go into Settings followed by ArrangeStatusBar and tap Reset StatusBar and your status bar icons will fly back to the normal positioning.

One update I'd like to see made is an option to completely remove icons from the status bar. I really have no need to see the iPod or carrier banner. I'd rather replace it with something more useful.

Any other updates you'd like to see?

Not bad, but messed up in landscape mode

Scott McCall says:

Anyone know of other jailbreak tweaks, aside from sbsettings, that allow you to hide/unhide applications?

Jonatan Karter says:

I find that I rearrange my icons in the status bar and they randomly move back if I get a message or something. Love this if I could get it to work. Think it may be user error but...

I agree, there needs to be an update so that it will still work in landscape.
