    Hy guys, Been searching around for a while, and ive found some similar topics to this, but nothing quite as messed up as my problem.

    Heres the deal:

    -I winpwnd my iphone 2G to firmware 2.0.2.
    -Installed Bigbosses catagories and Poof
    -proceeded put Settings, Installer, Cydia, Poof in a catagory
    -Restored to factory (hiding these icons)
    -Winpwn again, but obviously, Installer, Cydia, and Settings are hidden still.

    So now, I cant install any launchers so i can re-install poof or catagories to unhide settings.

    My iphone automatically joins my NEIGHBORS wifi, although SSH is most likely uninstalled

    What i need to do, is figure out a way to unhide installer, Cydia, and Settings.

    The only thing i can think of, is to manually add a launcher application that has not been hidden into my IPSW. But i cant find an application that will let me do this for windows.

    Anyone have any other ideas??

    I seem to remember that Boss Prefs has an option to hide and unhide icons...

    Can't you have them re-emerge using Boss Prefs ?

    Cheers...

    Edit :

    There is a way, it seems have these icons re-appear...

    SSH into your iPhone...

    Navigate to "/var/root/Library/Preferences/"

    Open up "com.apple.springboard.plist" in a plain text editor.

    Look for the <key>SBIsRevealable</key> <true/> line...

    Replace 'true' with 'false'

    This should do the trick...

    However when re-springboard your phone they will again have disappeared...

    So...install Boss Prefs when they are visible and unhide them using Boss Prefs...Or in the 'more' menu of Boss Prefs hit the 'fix user dir permissions'...

    Hope this takes care of your predicament...

    Cheers...

    Edit :

    Just SSH-ed into my iPhone (running 1.1.4 FW)..The file does exist but the entries aren't there so I presume this only works on earlier FW...

    I'm sorry...
