    Is it possible to rename applications? I want to do this because I'm using the sunburst thing and I want all my games at one end. Thanks for any help!

    you can also use Mobile Finder to rename the folder of the app.

    ex. Caissa.app -> Chess.app, restart springboard, voila app renamed.

    If you rename SMBPrefs, I found you must restart the ipod for the change to take effect.

    Be warned, if an update comes out for an app you named and you try to install it, it will crash back to the springboard. You must then rename the folder back to the original, to get the update.

    Be warned whe using mobile finder though. Smbprefs isnt the only thing that crashes. If u have a guitar hero theme for TTR then your skin will not show.
