    You can upload an invisible icon in its place, but all that is going to do is leave a blank spot on your home screen...and if you press that spot the clock is still going to open up.

    If you've never used it then you don't know that in Clock is where you set Alarms, Timers and the Stopwatch function. I realize we all use our iPhone's differently, just wanted you to know if you do remove the app and then need to set an Alarm, you'll be sol :-)

    Yah I wouldn't do that... replace it maybe with Field Test or wtvr, so you could just enable it again later, but don't delete it from the phone completely...

    Oh I was just saying hypothetically cause I want to replace the icon with a field-test one, but when I tried to, the clock was just added to the end of the list. I want to hide it so i can put it back later if need be.

    I'm having trouble removing icons as well. I just want to hide the programs, but when I delete them from springboard.plist, it just moves them to the end.

    Also, I added fieldtest to springboard and it showed up where I wanted it. Then I removed it and it put that, too at the end.

    I noticed that just removing the application from DisplayOrder.plist meant that it would appear again at the bottom. So instead I moved the application from the "iconList" to the "special" area where the fieldtest app is hidden. The icon no longer appears on my iconList.
