    I was wondering if it would be possible to make apps installed from cydia such as winterboard appear in spotlight. Cydia appears but anything installed via cydia doesn't show up.

    All Cydia apps show in spotlight for me. Do you have cydia and icy? Icy is bad and can mess things up. I recommend using only cydia.

    I never had icy on my iPod. Not sure why spotlight isn't displaying my cydia apps :s. Might it be MMF :s

    Just realized that things in a category don't show up. Everything which isn't in the categories app displays just fine.

    Spotlight wasn't made to see apps in folders. Some one will have to make a tweak for it to see apps in folders or maybe categories simply needs to be updated. Idk.

    I've heard that the developer for QuickGold is working on an update that will essentially be a tweak for spotlight. Hopefully he/she makes some sweet options in addition to allowing searching for hidden apps.

    spotlight sees all of my apps regardless (except for categories)
