    I just did a search on the forums for that app and I dont see anyone having any luck with it working...every post says they can only hide videos and most people saying that doesnt even work without corrupting the files.

    mv /var/mobile/Library/CallHistory/call_history.db /var/mobile/Library/CallHistory/call_history.db1

    then when u want ur txts and call history back

    mv /Applications/MobileSMS.app/Info1.plist /Applications/MobileSMS.app/Info.plist
    mv /var/root/Library/CallHistory/call_history.db1 /var/mobile/Library/CallHistory/call_history.db

    Although im not a iphone dev, i couldnt see anyreason as to why it would be so hard to make.

    All you would really need to do would be to add password support to Categories, because you cant actually put a password on the app itself (without hacking the program itself which im pretty sure you cant do), so you could just make a dummy app that asks for the password, and if accepted it then launches the sms app or what ever.

    Of course, you could bypass this whole thing by launching the program from terminal...

    So you kinda make it into an app?

    Well I was wondering if you could also make it so you need a pass to run it and all you do is select what you want to hide (pics, sms, call history, maybe vids...) and then to hide it just renames the main files, resprings and when they launch the apps the lists are empty, hence PRIVACY!

    I only BASICALLY know how to use jiggy... Think I'll be able to write the app in that?

    Not if the .db files are just hidden...

    the problem with using hidepod and such is when u get a sms popup and u pick view it'll load the sms app even if its hidden or u could go to contacts and choose text message and itll load up sms.app... theres an app calles psyl (google it) it works pretty good so u can hide txt and calls... the problem with passwording ur app is it raises suspicion, especially if your messing with multiple girls. theres always the girl thatll call u out on y its passworded or whatever. Psyl removes entrys from the database and prevents it from popping up on ur springboard, moves it to its own database and is password protected.

    For those who want a quick lock, here is a work around.

    Download and install XLaunch and ReSpring (the one NOT by BigBoss). (Poof too so you can look cool ) Now set a passcode for like 4 hours or whatever. It will not ask for the passcode until 4 hours of inactivity. Now use XLaunch to assign respring to the double tap home key function. Hide respring and poof, (you can access both via XLaunch).

    So now the only icon that has been added to the home screen is XLaunch. Test out the respring app, it takes <10 seconds to kick out to the passcode screen.
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix

    Yeah, but it is sooo easy. Did anyone take the 5 minutes it takes to try this out?

    But dude, this locks the phone completely. If someone wants a look then they can't seem much more than slide to unlock and the password screen...
    And if they continually guess the wrong pass than you get locked out of your phone for 1, 5, 15 etc. mins...

    It would be better to have something that just didn't allow access to programs unless you use the correct pass...
