    Hi everyone,
    For some reason or another, I installed an app that made all the Categories expulge all of the icons onto my springboard. So I just deleted the shortcuts in the respective Categories, deleted the Categories (not the app), and then remade them and added icons. This worked once and resprung successfully the first time.

    The next time I did this again with the other 2 categories that I had and then hit Respring. Nothing happened, I didn't see a white spinning thing, and after waiting for a few minutes I decided to force shut down the iPT.

    When I turned it back on, none of my icons were there. My dock disappeared so I can't launch any icons. I can get to music with double-home-click but that's it.

    Can someone help please? Wifi and SSH are on.

    Thanks!

    Ok, an update, since I'm home.

    I left SSH on and Wifi on, so I'm currently ssh'd into my iPod touch. However, I'm trying to start some apps via the cmd line, and I'm only getting

    Code:
    zsh: permission denied: /Applications/Categories.app
    I've also tried the following.
    Code:
    # chmod 777 Categories.app 
    # ./Categories.app 
    zsh: permission denied: ./Categories.app
    Any ideas? Thanks!

    if you to the /applications, then go to Categories.app, then right click the application itself, inside the Categories app, and click execute.
    cant remember if it was execute or something else.
    it should launch the app
