    Hi, like everyone, i rejailbroken to the untethered status.

    However, here is a strange situation:

    I did not use aptbackup because i figured that i would just start from scratch. On my tethered jailbreak, i had a lot of apps in folders created by Categories.

    However, i placed the categories icon itself into a folder.

    Now, i cannot access the Categories icon after i redownloaded it because i left it in the folder. Obviously, i also canot access the folders i had created before and all the apps i had in the folders are unaccessible even tho they are synced to my ipod.

    I know that categories is still in my ipod, but how can i make it accessible?

    all comment appreciated.

    You can always just reinstall Categories itself.

    i reinstalled it, but nothing happend, the icon did not appear. (i think this has something to do with the fact that i actually placed the categories icon inside a folders that i created with the program)

    I have the same problem..
    AND..very desperate for an answer.

    the one thing I read when I installed 'catagories' was, 'This is very dangerous'

    yeh, I could have made those options up myself, BUT however, The only icons i can open are ..Safari, appstore, itunes, youtube, videos, music and maps...So that would leave me with yet the same question...'how the hell can I fix this or should I just throw the damn thing out of the window...'

    if you don't have sb setting or cydia on the springboard or quick gold
    Then if you have ssh on
    just goto setting get the ip
    and make the app open using terminal codes.
