    I have a Jailbroken iPod Touch Gen1 running the 2.1 Software. Whenever I Restart my iPod or Springboard, all of my apps will randomly change places. How do I fix this?

    Uninstall Kate. It's likely conflicting with WinterBoard or some other program on your iPod.

    Edit: Never mind. I did have Kate (under Installer, not cydia)

    Kate only comes under Installer, IIRC, because it's a RIP Dev production... and is known to scramble icons on the SpringBoard.

    The fix is to uninstall Kate. That's all you can do - and that's all that's screwing up the SpringBoard.plist.

    How do I do that? I can't find it in Installer or Cydia but there is something in the setting called Rip dev and in that menu is stuff with the Kate logo but nothing in installer

    That RIP Dev preference thing is Kate. Get rid of anything by Rip Dev in Installer from your installed packages list.

    I have found after about 5 or 6 restarts everything works fine. Kate agrees with WB and the icons all stay in their place. I will continue to monitor the progress. I was going to uninstall Kate until it finally came around
