Thread: Embarassing Question! (urgent)

  1. #1
    Default Embarassing Question! (urgent)
    So I was playing around with Categories, the next day I deleted it. Stupidly forgetting to take everything out of the folders first, I had no way of doing it. Categories wouldn't re-install so I restored my phone.

    When I restored it I didn't have a lot of my applications anymore! Including Phone, Camera, and Settings. I really need to get them back. Help please?

    Well if u had them in a folder what categories does is hides them.
    download sb settings or boss prefs.
    Then go to hide icons or hide apps something like that, it will then bring up a list just put it on that way i shows the app, then respring and its all good.
    hope it helps.

    You have to reinstall categories (its a must), then take them out of the category, you can utilize poof inside sbsettings to unhide any hidden apps.

    Also there are certain apps that you never want to put into a category, like cydia, phone, categories app

    I recommend that you restore again, but this time, set up your phone as a new phone, do not restore from backup. Then you'll have all your apps back.
