    *Front page worthy?*

    As you might expect on 3.0, if you hide your apps using thebigboss's program Poof (included in SBSettings and Bossprefs) Spotlight won't find them. Even more surprisingly though, poof Mail/Safari/iPod any stock app, then open Settings. There won't be an option to change that apps settings.

    You have to unpoof, respring, then you can chsnge your preferences.

    Hopefully we'll get a patch, but it sure is annoying...

    Yea, it's already been discussed. Unfortunately, no fix yet.

    Just get rid of the requiredCapabilities keys in Settings-iPod/Settings-iPhone.
    So get rid of:
    Code:
           <key>requiredCapabilities</key>
                <array>
                    <dict>
                        <key>application-display-identifiers</key>
                        <string>com.apple.xxxxxxxxxx</string>
                    </dict>
                </array>
    
    I myself haven't tried it, but it should work at keeping the settings in there.
