    Hello dudes!

    So I downloaded a cydia app called 'rename' and started renaming my apps,I dunno why I bothered but I renamed fring for some reason and now it has disappeared from my springboard. The only 2 places I can see it are in 'categories' and 'rename' so both cydia apps but in any case, it won't open! I'm slightly perplexed coz it's the one app I need more then anyother right now. I've tried downloading it from iTunes apps on my iPod touch but it is saying it's already installed?

    I've deleted the 'renames' app but didn't make any difference!

    Any of you guys know what I can do about this?

    Much obliged!

    I renamed Siphon to phone and had no problems. I second this method of removal though.

    You could try renaming it Fring in rename, then going to itunes, uncheck it for which apps you want to sync. Apply that. Then go back to itunes and check it again and apply it.

    If that doesn't work than go to private/var/stash/Applications.random numbers and letters/Then to Fring.app

    Then click the delete button or move it to the trash.

    You would ssh by downloading openssh (and openssl not sure) and then open up your ssh client. For address type your ip, For username put root, and for password put alpine.

    I know what you mean. I guess Fring just isn't meant to be Renamed!
