I've watched numerous videos on how to hide this icon but ever since IOS 5.1 came out I can't seem to get it to work. Anyone have any suggestions?

I have seven pages of apps. I stuck it back on the last page. Never see it there.

I have all my apps in folders do I only have I page, except now I have two pages because the news stand is on the second page. I liked only having one page.

There was a method of stashing the newsstand into a folder pre 5.1.x.
It involved sliding newsstand icon into a folder as it was being created. A bit tricky, but I did get it to work:

As u can see by the first screenie, it does not even show up in the springboard folder view, just a blank spot, but open the folder and there it is.
Still works for anyone on iOS 5.0.x

It is also an option in Springtomize:

but I do not enable it since I'm still on 5.0.1.
Can also be hidden via other Cydia tweaks...
