    this is one thing that has driven me nuts with my new broken 3g phone every time it needs restarted or rebooted the apps all get shuffled around. is there anway to lock them? searching the forum only brought up one other person with the problem. or is this such common knowledge no one comments on it anymore?

    if you hide them then it will move the apps on taht page over leaving a blank spot other then that it shouldnt move them

    Do you have the Five Column Springboard installed? If so, that's probably the cause of the problem. If not, I suggest a restore...

    Holy crap, glad to see I'm not alone! I just did a 2.2.1 JB yesterday and when I woke up and turned my phone on all my apps were moved, all screwed up. To make matters worse my system font was changed - I HATED it, I had to do a restore but haven't had time to re-JB

    I have more info to share. I did yet another restore/jailbreak and all was fine for two days. I downloaded new apps from cydia etc. Then last night I did a soft reset ( holding power and home till phone shut down). When I turned phone back on all my apps were jumbled and my system font was changed and there was a pop up saying my font was changed, something by team dev I think it said. I went through all my apps but can't figure it out. So I did yet another restore and now my phone is stock. I will prolly JB later though.

    Any ideas?
