How to create and add custom logos to Zeppelin

By , Feb 13, 2012

I don’t think anyone foresaw how popular Zeppelin would become in the jailbreak community, but there are tons of custom logo packs available, and more being made each day.

What if you wanted to create your own custom logo pack? How would you go about adding the Zeppelin logos to your iDevice manually without going through Cydia?

This tutorial seeks to answer that question, along with providing you with our very own custom iDB carrier logo pack!

To add a custom logo pack to your iDevice, simply do the following:

Step 1: FTP into your device

Step 2: Navigate to /Library/Zeppelin/

Step 3: Drop your logo pack folder inside the Zeppelin directory

Step 4: Open the settings panel for Zeppelin on your device, and select the name of your custom logo pack. You may need to respring first.

As you can see, it’s very easy to drag and drop your own custom logo packs. As a matter of fact, why not download our official iDB logo pack, and show your love for iDB?

Leave a comment below with a link to your device with an iDB custom logo, and your device may be featured in an upcoming video! What do you say?

    hey..is that an sbsetting nc theme or intelliscreen?

    • http://www.youtube.com/myjailbreakmovies/ Jeff Benjamin

      It’s IntelliScreen.

      There is also k2nc sbsettings theme exact same toggles

        Yeah, but SBSettings toggles are not centered neat in NC like IntelliScreenX.

      • cruzcontrol1001

        Yeah your right but beats the price. It’s also a great alternative for the price and, some people don’t want all those tweaks just the sbsettings theme. So it really is a preference. I’m also not going to 9.99 if all I want is the sbsettings theme.

    • http://www.youtube.com/myjailbreakmovies/ Jeff Benjamin

      Install afc2add and use ifunbox (free) in your computer. You have to plug in your iphone’s cable for this.

    A friend of mine Zeppelin has installed on his iPhone with German network providers, and then he had no more network and had to restore their iPhone fully without a backup again

  • Donovan Wynter

    now that we have notification center and can enable SBSettings in there

    why dont the dev of SBSettings change the function of the slide down and up and just leave it to notification center instead???

    • cruzcontrol1001

      You deactivate it by going into settings, activator, anywhere, slide status left and right options and x them off and your done

  • http://twitter.com/iAppleTech2  iAppleTech2 

    What dimensions did you use for the iDB logo. I heard the height has to be a max of 50 pixels. Any advice? Thanks

    • http://www.facebook.com/sanil.chitrakar Sanil Chitrakar

      Just use one of those logo as a template. No need to screw around with canvas dimension. Height is same for all the logos but u can change the width a bit wider than the template if you want.

      This is not a photoshop tutorial site.

        I’m not asking how to edit the file, all I am asking is a step by step video. MORON!

      • http://www.facebook.com/sanil.chitrakar Sanil Chitrakar

        He said everything you need to know in this video except how to edit the file. Think you’re the moron for not understanding. :P

    I must be missing something here. The video showed how to add logos to the file system. I did not see anything on how to actually create one. I assume there is some software needed, beyond an FTP client.

    • http://www.facebook.com/sanil.chitrakar Sanil Chitrakar

      He said use one of those logos as a template to create your custom logo. And the software to create one is photoshop.

        I respect your reply, thank you. That level of software has to steep of a learning curve and price tag. Sorry no Mac in my house and no budget for photoshop.

        Anyone create a nebraska cornhuskers bog red N for me? I am not a big fan but everyone else up here is and wouof love to show off to my iPhone maniacs that have $500 N stones in their yard.
