    As far as I know, this way of doing it hasn't been shown yet. I think is simple and effective. If this is already well known (i did some searching but not a lot), sorry about that.

    First, get the Info.plist out of whatever app you want to hide

    Save it to your desktop and then run it through the plutil (found here:
    http://140.124.181.188/~khchung/cgi-bin/plutil.cgi) so it can be read.

    Then just insert this:
    right before the last '</dict>' Save then put back into your iPod, restart the springboard and it hides the app. Again terribly sorry if this has been done, this 'temporary' thing is really big haha. found on modmyifone.com.

    Yes, it works.
    The only problem is that it just has the ability to hide the iPod icon, not the seperate music and video icons.

    Well yes, that's what's done on the iPhone, which this program is obviously designed for.
    I just like keeping my iPod close to default, I hardly use Summerboard themes and all of my 3rd party icons go on a second screen, so having just an iPod icon would annoy me.

    yep, im an idiot. thanks a lot though. luckily, maybe this will allow for the iPod app now, who knows. to save from more embarrassment, does anyone know how to fix the dock to get the old ipod one back?
