    so i had a jailbroken 3.0 ipod touch 2g. when the 3g came out, i backed it up and returned it to costco =) now, although all my apps are synced onto the ipod, the icons are gone (its got 3.1.1). i think its because i had categories...it seems the apps stored in categories have dissapeared. i know where the ipod backup files are, so does anyone know how to delete the files that tell the ipod to hide the icons??? if i could jailbreak, then i could fix it, but sadly, i cant do that yet. any help would be appreciated =)

    When running a jailbroken device, it's a good rule of thumb to always restore, not update, to new firmwares. It's a bigger hassle but it's worth the headache it will save. Starting fresh will also make your device feel much snappier so you'll get over it eventually.

    Oh, and don't use the backup feature. Always set it up as a new device. Transferring settings from a jailbroken device to a jailed one can cause problems.
