    Ok kinda a problem here. I installed Catergories and moved all my apps like itunes, cydia, etc into one folder. Then I decided this was a lame application and uninstalled it. But the folders are still there except I cant launch the applications in them. What should I do?

    Wow that was VERY INTELLIGENT on your part. Next time, read the "more info" page and read about the app before messing with it. BAHAHA

    Install instructions:

    1) Grab the deb file here.
    2) SCP it onto your iphone in /tmp (or use wget)
    3) SSH into your iPhone and type: dpkg -i /tmp/categories_2.01b.deb

    or if you have bossprefs, just use poof and unhide cydia to reinstall

    How exactly do I do this step? Where is the terminal to type this in

    nvm mind i found it
    it just seems to be taking a ridiculously long time

    Ok so i entered that into terminal and
    it just sits there forever, saying setting up

    :/ So what have you learned? If you can't SSH properly or use cydia, you have to restore

    Yeah, seriously. When you first install Categories it tells you to read the Read Me before doing anything...and it talks about uninstalling apps....

    After that remark, I say you deserve to restore and lose everything you have.

    Btw, I'm pretty sure it say's to leave your important apps out of it.

    lame application? ur not like the rest of us who have 9 pages of apps and do not enjoy organizing/shuffiling thru all them. categories was one of the most anticipated apps on 2.0+ and enjoyed by everyone i can think of including myself

    restore, so we can all laugh

    Consider this a rough lesson in modding... if you do not read & understand first - you probably shouldn't do the mod. You really can break stuff. A simple restore may hurt - but it also may teach you a bit.

    Totally agree. I think its a pretty cool app.

    What I need to know what are the 9 pages of apps you have? I'm always looking for cool stuff to put on my phone and it seems like its slim pickings. where are you getting apps from?

    "Then I decided this was a lame application."

    There's your first mistake right there. The rest is noob history.

    "What I need to know what are the 9 pages of apps you have? I'm always looking for cool stuff to put on my phone and it seems like its slim pickings. where are you getting apps from?"

    We could tell you but then we would have to kill you. Or minimally get banned from this board. LOL.
