I had the Photos Icon in my Task Bar on the bottom. However, for some unknown reason it is not there. I rebooted, went into Categories and Categories can find it, but when I try to add it, it shows until I Respring. Then after Respring, I cannot see it on my Home Screen or anywhere? Any suggestions? Thank you!

Have you checked to make sure it's not set to hidden either in catagories or sbsettings?

Hmmmm. As a last resort you could try deleting the springboard.plist. The phone will auto generate a new one when you respring after deleting it. And all the default icons should have a location on the new plist that is generated. Doing this will cause you to have reset some of your settings though. Alarms, default ringtone, SMS alert, ect.....
A restore would correct the problem, but if you do try that you should choose set up as a new phone instead of restore from backup.
Here's the directory location is case you want to try

Thanks for all your suggestions and help. I finally resolved the problem. I did an update an hour ago and found that I had a Cydia update to IconSupport. After I updated then I went back to Categories and again added Photos to my Apple Folder and it worked this time. I do have a different Icon for Photos, different that the normal Icon default. However, it does allow me to access my photos. Thanks again.

Catagories seems to make a lot of problems for the newer users. I'm not a big fan. My 2cents
