    Hi,

    I just got a 5 and in the heat of downloading all of my apps, I somehow managed to put a folder inside of another one. Now when I try to open the folder it crashes...no option to delete it.

    Thoughts?

    Folderception.

    The question is, does the top fall over?



    Lol but seriously, iOS doesn't allow you to put a folder inside a folder, so there must be a glitch. I'm afraid the only way to fix this is a full restore.

    Strange bug that it even let you do that. Try plugging in to iTunes and managing your home screens from that, moving and/or deleting items.

    Otherwise, may have to nuke and redo. But again, that seems to be a very strange bug.

    well it was a game of will it crash or not...but i finally got it.

    I was actually a folder, inside a folder, inside a folder.

    All good now though. Weird glitch.

    Have you thought of maybe connecting your iPhone to iTunes and moving the folder from there? You can move apps and folders around once synced to iTunes, so it might work.
