    Say I make a category called games and I put all my games in that folder. Is there a way I can sort them?

    Thanks.

    It's very easy to do if you have SSH access to your phone.

    If you have a Category called "Graphics", you'll have a corresponding app called "Graphics.app".
    Navigate inside that folder, and you'll see a plain text file called list.txt. Open that in any text editor, and reorder the list. Save that new list.txt back to the phone, and
    Respring or you can avoid respringing to see the changes by deleting the file "cache.bin" inside the app folder.

    Here's a visual example:

    Naked touch.app
    Photogene.app
    PhotoArtist.app
    CinemaFX.app
    geneBlender.app
    OldBooth.app
    Panorama.app
    TimeLapse.app
    DocScanner.app
    Brushes.app
    colors.app

    OR open categories, click edit for they folder you want to arrange the apps in, there are horizontal bars to the left of every app and you can move them up and down just like in winterboard
