    ok you guys will not believe this, when I installed yourtube from cydia, I put the icon on the dock on the youtube app, then when I uninstalled it, the dock only held four icons now! then I reinstalled yourtube, and it didnt change back, so I left the four icons there including the yourtube download icon. but then, when I updated to 4.1, IT ONLY HELD THREE ICONS FOR YOUTUBE APP, this is annoying, so is there a way I can change the icons back to five?

    Try doing the opposite...

    Install Yourtube, Go to the More tab, then hit edit, and try adding the downloads tab, or any other tab to the bottom of YouTube.

    It's just an idea that probably doesn't help at all, but still

    I finally figured it out. When you upgrade firmware with YourTube installed it removes the line of text from the .plist file that references "downloads" and it can't be added back with out a restore or manually adding it back.

    The file you need to edit is in this folder:

    \private\var\mobile\Library\Preferences
    The File is:
    com.apple.youtube.plist

    Here is what mine looked like:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    <key>Bookmarks</key>
    <array/>
    <key>History</key>
    <array>
    <string>VgxA3Aus8jY</string>
    <string>rLKkaFjxF8U</string>
    <string>87xLrWV6pFs</string>
    <string>a_exhbV_y9s</string>
    <string>urAyOKlgGDk</string>
    <string>aEFjiMlh6VY</string>
    <string>19bEQNRx7og</string>
    <string>IoVb6-s-wEA</string>
    <string>vm60AJRhd1E</string>
    <string>yhg4jkloYQ4</string>
    <string>6rSVf6KruKc</string>
    <string>PgulkcPkBdk</string>
    <string>vL56NP5d96Q</string>
    <string>hf8X5VEp-1c</string>
    <string>-awz8z_TzDI</string>

    <string>Lqsrd7K-Dg0</string>
    <string>BhHaYqIDA04</string>
    <string>KwEqDiiOw7I</string>
    <string>OMEeqWBWjv8</string>
    <string>oYHhLGNn0Vk</string>
    <string>XpLPEmopV-8</string>
    <string>MyNSx7TXVqE</string>
    <string>AMJW8H-1UEk</string>
    </array>
    <key>MostViewedSelectedSegment</key>
    <integer>0</integer>
    <key>TopRatedSelectedSegment</key>
    <integer>1</integer>
    <key>WebSmartInsertDeleteEnabled</key>
    <true/>
    <key>buttonBarCategories</key>
    <array>
    <string>YTMostViewedCategoryController</string>
    <string>YTSubscriptionListCategoryController</string>
    <string>YTSearchCategoryController</string>
    <string>YTMoreCategoryController</string>

    </array>
    <key>lastSearch</key>
    <string>Adele</string>
    <key>selectedCategory</key>
    <string>YTMoreCategoryController</string>
    </dict>
    </plist>

    Change the Red section to look like this and you will have 4 icons and the more option (5 icons total):

    <string>YTMostViewedCategoryController</string>
    <string>YTSubscriptionListCategoryController</string>
    <string>YTBookmarksCategoryController</string>
    <string>YTSearchCategoryController</string>
    <string>YTMoreCategoryController</string>



    I will post the whole .plist file but i suggest you just copy the section above and edit it in to your .plist file. If you are unsure message me and I will try and help.

    My working com.apple.youtube.plist file:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
