Seriously, this "was" a great app, til they took out, the hidden section. Now all apps that I don't use are now showing up and I hate having more than one page. It actually messed up my icons so bad, that now I have no icons on screen except for stack and the dock sunburst... now I have to restore... I'm so pissed rite now. Seriously, why take out the hidden section? if people didn't want to hide an app, then its up to them whether or not they want to put an app under the hidden section.

yes, I'm kind of mad when I updated today and the hidden was gone. I really hate having things like the demoapp and crap on my screen and really just want it to be gone. I guess they couldn't figure out how to get the hidden section to work and make it stable.

You don't need to restore, just replace the M68AP.plist file in your Springboard folder and all will be well. That file is probably the single most important file to keep backups of...saved me more than a few times.

when I moved icons like demo and field test to the bottom of the list, they disappeared from the SB.

edit: nevermind, the icons just went to a 3rd screen, not hidden.:oops:

Guys, I put this in another thread as well. You don't have to restore to get back to hidden icons. Deinstall Customize 1.17 from the installer app. Then connect to iBrickr and install 1.13. You will be back to normal. I made the same mistake and almost flipped out when I noticed they removed the hidden option. I have no idea why they would remove that though, thats the only thing I use customize for.

Wow, bad decision there. Why would they do that/ I don't really want to see "Demo App" on my SpringBoard.

Anyone know a board where the devs of customize read. I would be happy to post my signature on that petition.

Just use xlaunch to hide icons. It is on the installer app and it works, though I did have to hide icons a few times (in some cases) to get them to hide. It also allows for reordering the icons as well. All of them except itself which is odd.

If you run firmware 1.0.2 though, xlaunch wont work. Ive used the old Summerboard app though, and itll hide some of your icons. It looks better than having all your apps on your springboard.

I'm done with Customize for the moment. All I used it for was icon reordering, and that was never quite right ever since rSBT was integrated with Customize.

Personally, I think Customize breaks the number one rule: do no harm.

It has managed to mangle more than a few iPhones due to its careless handling of the crucial system file M68AP.plist. This is the famous "My iPhone turned into an iPod!" scenario.

But now, it's really annoying. All I wanted to do was check out 1.17 to see if it got better (it didn't). I didn't want it to change one single file on my iPhone. But it did. It copied all of my sound files (creating backups), M68AP.plist, and who knows what else. To me that is horrible behavior considering I didn't ask it to change a thing (I changed nothing within Customize).

In any event I restored and re-jailbroke 1.1.2 and Customize is not going on it. I can use LauncherX to reorder icons, or just edit M68AP.plist manually.

Sure wish rSBT was still a stand-alone app...

What do you use to manually edit the M68AP.plist? I'd like to try that.
