    My apps on my ipod touch keep rearranging in different orders and is always scrambled everytime I:
    -Respring
    -Sync iPod to computer
    -Transfer apps to and from itunes

    The icons would get randomized EVERYTIME.

    I have 5 dock, 5 column, and 5 rows installed, however. Is there no way to fix this?

    Hey,
    Even I was having the same problem, you have to remove the 5 icon things including the dock. The better option is to use categories. Then the icons will not rearrange. IMO, when you respring the layout changes to 4 icons and then the 5 icon hook is applied causing the icons to rearrange.
    Hope it helps.
    Cheers

    the five icon collumn was what set it off for me. Just to be safe I'm not using the dock either, but I know that is safe

    It seems that a lot of people have this problem, which apparently is solved most commonly by uninstalling Five Icon Dock. I seriously doubt it really is 5ID that causes it, as I have all three perfectly.

    Question - do all of you have Installer 4 installed? IIRC, it also screws around with the SpringBoard.plist files, the same way Kate does.
