    When I upgraded from 2.02 to 2.1 cydia, poof and categories were set up in a separate folder. now after the upgrade these are all hidden and I can't access the category app. Anyway to unhide apps manually? thanks

    SSH into the iPod and run one of these commands to launch either application
    /Applications/Poof.app/Poof
    /Applications/Categories.app/Categories


    (Crtl-T in WinSCP to launch Terminal)

    If SSH is new to you, look here

    Yay for solutions that don't work on 2.x

    When did SSH become incompatible on 2.x?
    /Applications is symlinked to ~stash, so it makes no difference. Simple commands to launch applications..

    Please explain I'm curious.

    You can't execute programs from an outside terminal in 2.x

    Or you can use MobileTerminal, assuming you have it installed or have access to Cydia, to run Poof manually. Or use BossPrefs.
