    Default Is there a way to Remove an icon?
    I never use clock.. i mean never. the clock i need is at the top. if i wanted to can i remove an icon... i try to edit the DisplayOrder.plist and even though i erased its string it still appears... HELP!

    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.

    Go into /Applications/ and then type rmdir

    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...

    remove it from the DisplayOrder.plist

    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.
