    There's this nifty little app that basically puts your ipod/iphone into safe mode that you don't have to restart to get out of. Well I went into it for the first time after moving from categories to stacks as stacks is faster and just better overall. But because stacks apparently can't be accessed in "game mode" I can't get to the app to turn it off and go back to my regular theme >_> So is a restore in my near future or is there some way I can unhide the icon (no access to boss prefs or anything meaning I'd have to do it via SSH I believe...

    Not sure if this'll solve your problem, but have you tried rebooting?

    I'm not sure what features are available to you in safe mode, but if you have the spotlight feature still available, search for the app and turn it off.

    this is where not knowing the exact name of the app becomes a problem >_>

    Just type one letter at a time and see what comes up, there's only 26, shouldn't take too long.

    Is it safe to install? Is it good? Does it use MobileSubstrate (in case it crashes).

    swap mode creates a lot of problems for people.. Safe mode thru Sbsettings is much more stable, safer, better.. and is basically the same as what swap mode tries to do..
