    I don't know what I did or how it happened but my springboard keeps on getting scrambled each time I restart my SpringBoard. I noticed it was doing it when I made a new folder with the Categories app. Im not saying Categories did it but I thought I'd bring that up just in case it has conflicts with some other program or something like that.

    UNINSTALL KATE. Kate does this with WinterBoard or any other program that diddles with icons.

    Also, "Search" for "Springboard Icons Scramble".

    It shouldn't. That means that something is messing with com.apple.springboard.plist, meaning it might delete ALL of your settings or something worse with that root access.

    Kate is just fail. It likes to compete with WinterBoard for control over ~Library/Preferences, and it ends up really screwing over com.apple.springboard.plist

    ...I don't have Kate installed?
    Any other app that may cause this?

    Get rid of anything by Rip DEV that you have installed.

    Funny how this posts resembles one in the Jailbreak 2.1 forum.
