Thread: Can't remove "Categories 1.72"

    Default Can't remove "Categories 1.72"

    to remove the apple logo i reinstalled my iphone with winpwn & itunes (FW 1.1.4 with custom logo) after a backup of all my apps with ibackup. then i restored all the apps back to the iphone and everything seems to work fine. but then i realized, that i coudn't change anything in "Categories 1.72".. so if i added icons to a folder (or category, whatever), then it just didn't move there.. (it looked like, i don't have permission to do anything in it)

    so i said.. just reinstall categories.. and i removed categories with the installer and then i saw, that these folders are still on my springboard, even without having categories installed. so i deleted over SSH everything with "Categories"...

    Then after reinstalling Categories (the old folders are still on springboard, but not visible in categories manager, but i can add new ones..) i read in help file, that i could copy back the M68AP.plist file from /var/root/Library/Categories to /System/Library/CoreServices/ - if i wouldn't have deleted all that stuff bevor.. so it looks like that this "desktop" is saved in this file, an i just got the new, modified version from categories...

    do you think that it would be possible to put in there a "standard" file from a new installed iphone to get it working again? or does this kill all my apps?

    thanks for your help in advance...

    I have same issue on the Categories v2.22.
    I removed Categories from Cydia by Package menu.
    But the icons created by Categoris are still appear on the Springboard.

    You gotta reinstall catagories and delete the folders before you uninstall it.

    Yeah but now I can't reinstall it because they took it out of the store (presumably because of all the problems).

    Oops, I think it was.. SB.. I'm not sure which categories I had
