    The Coding Massacre has discovered a trick to force the iOS 5 Newsstand into a folder. The only reason to do this is to tuck Newsstand away and hide it -- users who have performed this trick discovered that opening Newsstand when its in a folder crashes Springboard, the main home screen on the iPhone.
    If you wish to use Newsstand at some point, simply remove it from the folder and place it back on the main level.

    It's not just Newsstand, it's any folder.

    Wow, i cant believe my trick actually got posted on MacRumors. This is awesome :3 And yes, on the source link i did mention folder within a folder is possible using this method, but its not very practical, since it crashes everytime you try to open the folder. But if your trying to hide a folder from like your friends or something, its a perfect solution. Funny thing is, i tried this trick on an iOS4 device.. It worked. Its been an iOS glitch for over a year and i hadn't realized it till now xD

    If you try opening Newsstand while it's in another folder, Springboard crashes. You can use it as a was to quickly respring Springboard! :p

    Agreed. Like contacts... it seems redundant to have a contacts app if I can access my contacts from the phone app.

    Yeah, if you quickly wanna respring without JB'ing, like if your device starts to go slow, this would work wonders.

    Folder in a folder doesn't work. When you click on it and the device restarts, the change is negated.

    This glitch is for hiding NewsStand for those people who dont like it, it will just respring if its in a folder. If you take it out however, its full functional.

    Works like a champ, so long as you don't try to then use Newstand from within a folder.

    You need it to be able to access contacts while on a phone call. Or at least you did originally, I don't know if they've updated that.
