    Default Auto Icon Arranger/Memory
    Every time we do a restore, get a new phone, update Firmware, fix a problem by restore or whatever we always have to rearrange PAGES of app icons.

    I myself have about 7 pages and Im sure most of you have more.
    It takes me about 20 minutes to organize each app to its spot that i have come used to.



    Is there anyway to have an app that remembers the location of each app/icon and then I guess back it up through itunes so it can be restored?

    springboard arrangement is actually saved on itunes backup so if you restore to an old setup after doing a restore and update or whatever all your icons will be repositioned as before.
    Being an i can be a lot of pressure. you have to live right up to the small point.

    here is what I did.

    Syncd and backed up my iPhone whilst in 2.1 JB
    Set to recovery mode and did restore update to 2.2
    Set as old iPhone from backup using backup made 20min before
    Quikpwned
    Installed appbackup and aptbackup
    Resyncd and did restore backup (noticed icons allready became rearranged)
    Did the apt restore an app restore process to get cydia apps quickly installed

    Pages now a mess again

    Resyncd again and all icons were back where I wanted them, settings right and all email, contacts etc loaded. All apps have old saves and winter board has previous themes selected.

    Did you have appbackup and aptbackup installed before you synced the first time just before using quickpwn? I have never gotten those to work.
