    Default Help! Categories messed up my iphone
    So i installed categories, tried it out and now all that appears on my home screen are no icons and "iPod" where the carrier logo should be. hmm.. how do i restore this? id use restore from itunes but my music is no longer on my hard drive. i dnt want to lose 1.5gb of music. i read from the "more info" section of the categories app that you can SSH into it and do something with the display order if this sorta thing happened. How do I do it?

    Thanks everyone!

    P.S. im sorry if im posting in the wrong place of the forums. I ddnt know where to post "ineedhelp" threads.

    yeah, don't install this. If you trybto uninstall it destroys your home screen. I can't restore or anything now. Can't even contact boss tools through installer. Please someone help in fixing this manually!

    the more info page gives no instructions, just says if you know ssh you can fix manually.

    Jayman and Hanzuke can you guys give me some info on your setups? Did you have touches, or phones and what FW? I tried it on quite a few phones before releasing it. The issue is probably within your display order file in the springboard dir.

    markmon, I have an iPhone with 1.1.1 firmware, unlocked. I used categories then the games category i created ddnt show up so I decided to just play a few games, SMS a couple of times. After that, I went into customize to rearrange the icons and hide a few unused ones. When I checked, the order of icons was from the order of the games category i created. I went to the home screen and the SMB restarted as it should when you exit customize, then it happened. The iPod phrase where the carrier should be and no icons on my homescreen. Do you have a guide on how to fix this through SSH? or Would you know where to find one?

    There's not like a guide or anything. I'm trying very hard to reproduce it. I have 3 phones here and cannot make it happen even using customize too.
    Anyways, the problem is probably in your /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/M68AP.plist file. Can you send that to me somehow? Perhaps paste the contents of it at www.pastebin.com

    Unfortunately, I cannot help anyone with the lack of details I am getting here. I need to see a paste of your display order file, know the firmware you are running, and the *exact* steps you took to get to where you are now. About 10 of us have run this thing and no one can reproduce any errors. Unless I can get some information, this will never be fixable.

    For 1.1.1 and 1.1.2 users, paste me your /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/M68AP.plist on www.pastebin.com and send me a link. For 1.0.2 users, /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/DisplayOrder.plist

    Man that file is so hosed. That's the whole thing? Take this one:
    http://markmon.mine.nu:90/M68AP.plist. Overwrite yours with it at /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/M68AP.plist
    Reboot your phone and see if it comes up. You can then load customize and reorder your icons. It is the stock 1.1.1 M68AP.plist that comes with your phone. I sure would like some help trying to reproduce this though.

    This happened to me too on 1.1.2 after creating categories, then deleting some without removing their contents, then I made a new category with almost all the apps on my phone in it. Here's my Plist file http://pastebin.com/m598b413e
    Hope that helps, this program has so much potential.

    For everyone that's having problems, I added a stock 1.1.1/1.1.2 plist file to my installer repository. If you install this, it will put your phone back to "stock" order and you can use customize to reorder your icons. If you cant get ot springboard, you can run installer from SSH by typing:
    /Applications/Installer.app/Installer
    It is in the "tweaks" category right now but should show up as recent. This should repair the damage done while I debug.

    To anyone else having this problem please continue to paste your steps and the pastebin it is very helpful.

    I will work on trying to improve this problem tonight.
