    Anytime you are going to a new firmware you must RESTORE, not upgrade. Even if you do the aptbackup method written by BigBoss you STILL have to restore the phone.

    I also updated my iPhone to 2.2 today and Categories did the same thing to me. It took a lot of trial and error to figure this one out since I wasn't able to find the solution anywhere!!!

    Here's what I did:
    - Reinstall Categories
    - Create a folder
    - Click 'Add'....and WALA! The hidden apps show up....WHEW!

    After exiting or restarting the springboard, you can go back to Categories to remove the apps from the folder. They will be viewable on the home screen again.

    Hope this helps someone out there!

    Doesn't matter.. the iPod touch is an iPhone without the "Phone" app. When you upgrade your touch/phone it overwrites many of the default system files and breaks the links and file paths of many 3rd party apps (categories). The apps are still there but the phone no longer knows where to look for them which is why it's a HUGE pain to re-create everything just the way you had it especially if you have a ton of hidden apps. So... again I will repeat myself... it is ALWAYS best to RESTORE to a new firmware, not UPGRADE. Oh you also lose about 500mb of disk space due to old stored files mk

    if you have your "Settings" app visible, launch it, then go to General > Restrictions. Enable Restrictions, then Disable Restrictions. Should unhide your apps. Worked for me anyway.

    I second this. Its quicker and easier to reinstall everything and SSH over your settings and themes.
