Apple devices use specially formatted XML files, known as Property Lists or ‘plists’, to store their settings. You can find more information on Property Lists here. If you have no experience with XML or plist files the format can look somewhat daunting at first but they’re actually fairly simple to work with. An example plist file for Foldr is shown below:-
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
The plist file consists of a list of settings, each followed by a value. Some settings also specify a type for their value. Note that all fields are optional and may be removed from the plist as necessary.
Copy the plist file into a text editor, change the values as necessary and save it as ‘foldr.plist’
Now we’ll hop into Profile Manager…
