    You need to edit your /Applications/BossPrefs.app/Info.plist and delete these 4 lines:
    (EDIT: Well this ridiculous forum editor strips it so its unreadable. Here are the lines: http://pastebin.com/f8cf787f)


    Save and replace the file on the iPhone. You can do this with SCP or with iphonebrowser. After this, restart the iphone and you will have BossPrefs icon back. Go in and unhide what you dont want hidden.

    v1.61 will not allow you to add BossPrefs to its own dock any longer.

    Open BossPrefs, click more, click dock icons and remove all the ones in there. All you've done is hide them. Took me 2 restores to figure that out.

    Default After installing bigboss I lost many icons - How to unhide them back?
    Hello!

    I have a 1.1.4 iphone (unlocked - how I do not know...I paid for unlocking it...)

    My problem - after installing through installer various apps including bigboss is the following:

    Sorry for asking more or less the same question, but I am not that expert and I would feel better if someone could answer me with simple step by step instruction the following:

    I have installed BigBoss in order to increase the volume of the disk (If I understood correctly iphone has 2 partitions, one for apps and one for my files i.e. photos, music etc.)

    So, after installing and run this Big Boss app I lost a lot of icons on my screen...
    I understand that the apps are not lost... the shortcuts (the icons) were lost...
    So, how can I find back my icons and be able to use these "hidden for now" apps again?

    Please reply and please reply to me in "simple words"

    Thank you very much!!!

    Waiting for your reply!!!
