    I did a very stupid thing. I installed extended preferences without reading the 'more info' section and now I'm stuck with this app which is intended only for iPhone. Can anyone guide me on how to delete this pesky app? Thanks a lot...

    PS: While I'm at it, I might as well ask if any of you guys know how to install customize 1.22 with customize 2.0 alpha installed? I have lots of 1.22 themes installed on my iPod Touch and now they're not compatible with version 2. But I read somewhere that I can have both of them running on the iPod. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Forgot to mention, I'm using iPod Touch 8GB with firmware 1.1.4. And the extended pref creates some additional menus on the preferences.app and none of them works. Thanks..

    Just navigate to Applications and delete Adv Prefs. or go to var/root/Applications/advprefs

    then delete

    *edit* this is coming from memory, so Sorry If I'm wrong.

    But there are 2 Applications folders, so delete them both.

    Thanks a lot iTouch532!! I'll try it once I got home from work...

    EDIT: it works, and I've found the string on my installer and managed to delete the extended preference string so that it no longer show up on my installer list. Thanks!

    No prob, but just remember that I'm not quite sure if that's correct, I'm just telling you this from memory. I don't have Squid on my touch, so I can't navigate, I'm at work too!! Lol

    Where do you work at?
