Hey gang..need some assistance please :D
This is what happened. On lunch today I decided to try out Kirikae. I installed it, and gave it a shot and didnt care for it much so I removed it,which prompted my phone to soft reboot which it did. When the screen returned, 99% of my icons were gone. I tried using spotlight but nothing, as if they were erased. Keep in mind that I also use catagories and had only 2 pages of apps NOT in custom folders.
So I went into catagories to see if I could remove them and place them back on my Springboard, and they were gone as well. I Opened sb settings and looked at the bottom at the App Folders section, and it listed ALL my apps and the paths to them, but I cannot, for the life of me, find them anywhere on my phone. Ive not tried SSH yet but I will soon just to see if they are there.
I just hooked my phone up to iTunes and low and behold, every app is missing its checkmark as if they werent even installed. Can this program I installed mess up my phone THAT bad that it erases all my apps??

Never heard of this. Did u install or uninstall something while installing kirkrai. Did u modify anything in anyway.
I'm pretty sure kirkae didn't cause this

no sir. I installed it and immediately noticed that my icons were all over the place, some on 1 page, 3-4 on another and just scattered in general so I removed it. Once it rebooted everything was just gone
So I rechecked all my apps in iTunes and reinstalled them all..so all the icons are back, but once I fire up catagories, make a new folder called Games, and try to add things to it..everything has a double icon lol..sighs
