    Post [HOW-TO] Reorganize the items on your settings menu.
    To reorganize the items on the settings menu, you will need the

    following items:
    plist editor (comes pre-installed on most Macs)
    iPhone/iPod Touch/iPhone Simulator (obviously)

    These are some of the menus and the plist file that defines them:
    Settings-iPhone.plist/Settings-iPod.plist/Settings-Simulator.plist
    Sound Settings: Sounds.plist
    Brightness Settings: Brightness.plist
    General Settings: General.plist/General-Simulator.plist
    Touchscreen Settings: Touch.plist
    For the rest use common sense to figure out which file corresponds to which menu.

    Each plist file has
    Example:
    To move the Auto-Brightness switch above the Brightness slider
    in the Brightness sub-menu, open Brightness.plist and move the
    dictionary entry for Auto-Brightness above the entry for the
    Brightness slider. To separate the two items, insert the
    following entry between them.
    Code:
    <dict>
        <key>cell</key>
        <string>PSGroupCell</string>
    </dict>
    I believe its possible to rename the items (eg. rename "Airplane Mode" to "Radio Silence"), change the icons for each item, and even make copies of them (eg. an "Airplane Mode" switch on the main menu and on the General Settings menu) but, I don't actually have 24/7 access to a Mac, and am not too keen about screwing with files on my iPhone.
    EDIT: I now know it's possible to change the item names, assign/change icons, and create new menus.
