How iOS Filesystem Hack works
The iOS filesystem contains a lot of files containing code that governs how various components of iOS behave. Under normal circumstances, access to the filesystem is forbidden and hidden from the user.
However, many things gets change when you jailbreak your device or get root access using an exploit. You can then perform slight modifications to the filesystem, such as changing font, icon shape, etc just like you do with Cydia tweaks.
Risks involved in editing the filesystem
There’s no No-Substrate mode that you can use to reverse all the changes.
All edits you make in Filza, correspond to a direct change in iOS code. As far as tweaks go, they only ever “hook” into the stock code and don’t perform intrinsic modifications.
This is the major difference between jailbreak tweaks and filesystem hacks.
If you still want to go ahead with the modifications and hacks, at least make a backup copy of system files.
- An iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch on iOS 11 firmware
- FilzaJailed or FilzaEscaped app
- Basic knowledge of the iOS filesystem
User interface hack
1. CHANGE SYSTEM FONT
Step3- Open the font using the “Open with Filza” option.
Step4- Move the appropriate font files to these directories one by one –
Move SFUI*.ttf Files to /System/Library/Fonts/CoreUI
Move Georgia*.ttf Files, Keycaps.ttc, KeycapsPad.ttc, PhoneKeyCaps.ttf to /System/Library/Fonts/CoreAddition
Move all remaining Helvetica*.ttc Files – /System/Library/Fonts/Core
Step5- Reboot your device.
2. CHANGE BOOT LOGO
3. CHANGE THE “SLIDE TO UNLOCK” TEXT (IPHONE X)
4. REMOVE ICON LABELS
Step1- Go to – .
Step2- Search for the app you for which you want to remove the icon label. The apps are present in this format – com.apple.[app name].
Step3- Open it and tap on the [app name].app file.
Step4- Open the folder and then tap on
Step5- Edit the string with the inbuilt text editor.
Step6- Change this to whatever you want and just enter a space if you want to completely remove the icon label.
Step7- Save the plist file.
