    Hello,
    does anyone know how to specify where your app icon will be place on the home screen?
    I would like to place my app icon near the center (or as close as possible) on the home screen.

    Is there some file that contains the locations?

    I don't care if this requires a JB device or not.

    Thank you

    There is none. The position of the app is the next free position after the first page. There is no way to choose where it goes. Only the user can change the position of it.

    Theoretically, if you're installing something through Cydia, you can make your .deb package run a script that changes the order of the icons. But you're right otherwise. And I actually wouldn't do that.
