Thread: Removing the Contacts icon from springboard

    Default Removing the Contacts icon from springboard
    Hi all,

    I installed the "categories" app through installer, but later decided I didn't like/need it, so I uninstalled it through installer. After a reboot I had the contacts icon on my homescreen (which wasn't there before).

    It doesn't show up in the M68AP.plist so I don't really know where to start. Any ideas on removing this redundant app icon?

    I know my question above has sent everyone feverishly researching to solve my problems... But I beat you to it.

    I added this bit of code to the info.plist file in the folder of /Applications.

    Did the trick! I even attached the plist file for your convenience. Aren't I great!

    Well done! Would you by any chance know how to write/modify the code to make the springboard icon rearrangment function (the one where you press and hold any icon until they all start shivering in preparation to be rearranged), completely off? Would be great if you could help. Thanks.
