    So i restore sometimes and itunes doesnt backup my icon order. also some things like safe mode and 5 column springboard mess them up. heres how to backup the icon order:


    1) Have ur icons the way u like them
    2) SSH to /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences
    3) find com.apple.springboard.plist and back up that file
    4) when ur order gets messed up just place that file back in the folder, but back up the other one in another location first.

    Well, this will be helpful for people with 5+ pages of apps.
    It's annoying as hell to redo my SpringBoard, and I only have 4 pages of apps.

    Exactly what I was going to say hehe, Yeah I agree with it looks the same as springback but I think using springback is easier but idk.
