Hi, i had my ipod touch updated to 2.2. the problem is i forgot to remove all my segregated apps including cydia and installer from my categories folder. as a result i cant see my icons for these apps. is there any way i can resolve this without restoring?

Anytime you are going to a new firmware you must RESTORE, not upgrade. Even if you do the aptbackup method written by BigBoss you STILL have to restore the phone.

its an ipod touch sir...will i still have my jailbreak apps and save game datas if in case i do i restore?
11-24-2008, 01:13 PM #4I figured it out!
I also updated my iPhone to 2.2 today and Categories did the same thing to me. It took a lot of trial and error to figure this one out since I wasn't able to find the solution anywhere!!!
Here's what I did:
- Reinstall Categories
- Create a folder
- Click 'Add'....and WALA! The hidden apps show up....WHEW!
After exiting or restarting the springboard, you can go back to Categories to remove the apps from the folder. They will be viewable on the home screen again.
Hope this helps someone out there!

if you have your "Settings" app visible, launch it, then go to General > Restrictions. Enable Restrictions, then Disable Restrictions. Should unhide your apps. Worked for me anyway.
