    HI everyone..sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this question..I have a 3rd Gen Ipod Touch 32 gig and I installed both categories and categoriessb and I want to add some of my own icons for categories..I went into Winscp to
    private/var/stash/applications/categories.app
    and I am NOT seeing the icons folder in there to add more icons..so if anyone could help me figure out where I put the new folder please let me know..thanks

    yeah but I only have 3 icons..basically what I want to do is use those icons for categories instead of the icons I am using now, to use those for "games" "Utilities" "Apps" stuff like that..dont really care for any of the icons that catagories has right now

    I see I remember there being someway to add custom folder icons but I always themed mine so I can't remember having a look now.

    I looked on a site and it said that there would be an icons folder in
    /private/var/stash/Applications.jCQ9HF/Categories.app
    but when I look in there I dont see it..and I dont see it in categoriessb folder either
