Convert binary plist files

If you are like me wanting to modify the order of your icons in the launcher, you’ll need to modify the N45AP.plist file in the system/library/coreservices/springboard.app directory. The plist¬†files are in binary format and as I’m on windows the easiest way is to use the online converter at http://lesterchan.net/plutil/ http://140.124.181.188/~khchung/cgi-bin/plutil.cgi This will convert your existing file to ASCII format and you can overwrite (after having modified¬†the newly created file) the existing N45AP.plist with the ASCII one (the¬†iPot¬†happily handles both formats).
