Preference Bundle Tutorial


REMEMBER: I wrote a lot of comments in the codes using the "//comments". Remove this comments or your hack won't work!

In this Tutorial I will explain how to create a Preference Bundle:

Prerequisites:
- Theos
- A hack code :D

Steps:
1) Create a Theos Project
2) Create a Preference Bundle
3) Editing files
4) More
!START!

1) Create a Theos Project


 
First, you need to have a Theos project. So do this in Mobile Terminal:






su root
alpine (or your SSH password)
$THEOS/bin/nic.pl (for someone is /var/theos/bin/nic.pl)
5 (or whichever number iphone/tweak belongs to)

Then it will ask some things:
- Project Name
- Package Name
- Author/Maintainer Name
- Bundle ID (very IMPORTANT. This is the Bundle ID of the app that you're hacking. You can find it in Info.plist file stored in the .app folder)

(Don't close the Terminal)

EXAMPLE:

2) Create a Preference Bundle


Create the Preference Bundle. So write this in Mobile Terminal:

cd /var/xxx/xxx (cd in your project folder. Usually cd /var/mobile/projectname)
$THEOS/bin/nic.pl (for someone is /var/theos/bin/nic.pl)
3 (or whichever number iphone/preference_bundle belongs to)

Then it will ask some things:
- Project Name (call it prefbundle or something like that)
- Package name
- Author/Maintainer Name

EXAMPLE:

BNsQvoy.png

Now you should have something like this in your project folder

3) Editing Files


Now put your hack code into the Tweak.xm file.
I will use this:

%hook UserStats

-(int)coins {
return 9999999;
}

-(int)gems {
return 9999999;
}

-(int)lives {
return 9999999;
}

%end 

But this is the normal code, without the things to do a Preference Bundle. So we need to ass something.
 
OPTION 1 (recommended):

 

#define PLIST_PATH @"/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/YOUR_PLIST_NAME.plist"     //here the name of your .plist (it's stored in the "Resources" folder)
 
inline bool GetPrefBool(NSString *key)
{
return [[[NSDictionary dictionaryWithContentsOfFile:PLIST_PATH] valueForKey:key] boolValue];
}

%hook UserStats                        //your class 
 
-(int)coins {                          //your function      
if(GetPrefBool(@"kCoin")) {            //instead "Coin" put what you want, but there must be "k"
return 9999999;                        //here what you want return your function
}
return %orig;
}

-(int)gems {       
if(GetPrefBool(@"kGems")) {
return 9999999;
}
return %orig;
}

-(int)lives {
if(GetPrefBool(@"kLives")) {
return 9999999;
}
return %orig;
}

%end

 

OPTION 2:

 

#define kPath @"/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/YOUR_PLIST_NAME.plist"     //here the name of your .plist (it's stored in the "Resources" folder)

%hook UserStats       //your class
-(int)coins {     //your function
NSDictionary *prefs=[[NSDictionary alloc] initWithContentsOfFile:kPath];
%orig;
if ([[prefs objectForKey:@"kCoin"] boolValue]) {                    //instead "Coin" put what u want, but there must be "k"
return 9999999;                                                     //here what you want return your function         
}
[prefs release];
return %orig;
}


-(int)gems {     
NSDictionary *prefs=[[NSDictionary alloc] initWithContentsOfFile:kPath];
%orig;
if ([[prefs objectForKey:@"kGems"] boolValue]) {                    
return 99999999;                                                      
}
[prefs release];
return %orig;
}

-(int)lives{     
NSDictionary *prefs=[[NSDictionary alloc] initWithContentsOfFile:kPath];
%orig;
if ([[prefs objectForKey:@"kLives"] boolValue]) {                    
return 99999999;                                                      
}
[prefs release];
return %orig;
}
%end

Now save the Tweak.xm file and go in prefbundle folder > Resources folder.
Then open the file .plist (not the "info.plist", but the other one)

So, delete all strings in this file except the first string with the xml encoding and paste this:
 

<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">

                <dict>

			<string>Visit xxxx for more!</string>
		</dict>
	</array>
	<key>title</key>

</dict>
</plist> 

This is how it should look like: http://prntscr.com/3s2igg


 


4) More


You can add a lot of things in the PreferenceBundle. I will update this section.

- Cleaning Files (required for all!)


 Go in the Preferences Bundle folder in your hack/tweak project. Here you should have 2 folders and 3 files:
 
Folders:
 - Theos
 - Resources
 
Files:
 - Makefile
 - Entry.plist
 - xxx.mm
 
Now open the xxx.mm file (in my case "prefbundle.mm) and delete these strings:

@interface xxxgListController: PSListController {        //instead "xxx" you will have your name (in my case "prefbundle")
}
@end

And delete this string:

#import <Preferences/Preferences.h>

Then add this string at the top:

#import “xxx.h”

xxx must be the same of the xxx.mm (for example: prefbundle.mm > prefbundle.h)
 
Now create a new file called xxx.h (in my case "prefbundle.h) and add these strings:

#import <Preferences/Preferences.h>
@interface xxxListController: PSListController {                //instead "xxx" you will have your name (in my case "prefbundle")
}
@end

Done!


- Add a Respring Button


 
********************mCSsj6o.png*********************

Go in the prefbundle folder and open the "xxxxx.mm" file

 
This is the original code:
 

#import 

@interface prefbundleListController: PSListController {
}
@end

@implementation prefbundleListController
- (id)specifiers {
	if(_specifiers == nil) {
		_specifiers = [[self loadSpecifiersFromPlistName:@"prefbundle" target:self] retain];   //insted "prefbundle" you will have your name
	}
	return _specifiers;
}
@end

// vim:ft=objc

Now edit it in this way:




#import 

@interface prefbundleListController: PSListController {
}
@end

@implementation prefbundleListController
- (id)specifiers {
	if(_specifiers == nil) {
		_specifiers = [[self loadSpecifiersFromPlistName:@"prefbundle" target:self] retain];
	}
	return _specifiers;
}

-(void)respring {
         system("killall -9 SpringBoard");
      }

@end

// vim:ft=objc
 

We added this method

-(void)respring {
         system("killall -9 SpringBoard");
      } 

in the "@implementation" part
Now go in the "Resources" folder and open the .plist file
So, add this (where you want, but usually at the end. Obviously not in the middle of another method)

<dict>
	<key>cell</key>
	<string>PSButtonCell</string>
	<key>label</key>
	<string>Respring</string>
	<key>action</key>
	<string>respring</string>
</dict>

 


- Add UIAlertView (credits pop-up)


 
This will add a button in the Preferences Bundle. When you will click on it, will appear a pop-up. This can be useful to add a credits pop-up.
 
Go in your Resources folder and open the .plist (not the info.plist, but the other one)
Then add this code (obviously not in the middle of another function)
 
 

<dict>
       <key>cell</key>
       <string>PSButtonCell</string>
       <key>action</key>
       <string>apply</string>
       <key>label</key>
       <string>Credits</string>             //instead "Credits" you can write what you want. This is the text on the button.
</dict>

Now go in your xxx.mm file and add these strings in the @implementation part:

-(void)apply {
UIAlertView *alert1 = [[UIAlertView alloc]initWithTitle:@"Credits!" message:@"Test by SUPERGIU" delegate:self cancelButtonTitle:@"Thanks" otherButtonTitles:nil];
[alert1 show];
}

Obviously edit the text as you want.
 
Done!


- Add Button-URL (to open a page)


This will add a Button-URL, so when you will click this button, will be opened a website page. This is useful to open your website, for example iOSGods.
 
So, go in your Resources folder and open the .plist (not the info.plist, but the other one)
Then add this code (obviously not in the middle of another function)

<dict>
	<key>action</key>
	<string>link</string>
	<key>cell</key>
	<string>PSButtonCell</string>
	<key>label</key>
	<string>iOSGods</string> //instead "iOSGods" you can write what you want. This is the text on the button.
</dict>

 
Now go in your xxx.mm file and add these strings in the @implementation part:

- (void)link {
    [[UIApplication sharedApplication] openURL:[NSURL URLWithString:@"http://www.iOSGods.com"]];
} 

Obviously edit the URL as you want.
 
Done!
 


I will add other things in the next weeks. For example other type of button, toggles ecc..

Yeah, but the MS hack don't need it. This is useful for tweaks :)

Damn you Apple for taking Jailbreak away from an awesome member!!
