    I recently made a bunch of different upgrades through Cydia since last night and this morning. Just now, I noticed that my Categories icon has disappeared. Has anyone else experienced this?

    The thing is that I have a lot of different apps spread amongst 4 or 5 folders and I don't want to have to re-add everything. Any chance this is just a bug that the developer could create a fix to fix it?

    Well, reinstalling category app won't affect your existing apps in each folder. You don't need to re-add anything. (Just choose reinstall in Cydia , DO NOT remove it and then install it again)

    I also have the EXACT same problem after updating 3 or 4 Cydia updates!

    Re-installing Categories and Categories SB DOES NOTHING. I have done this 3 times

    Next suggestion please? Removing Categories will delete all the folders and apps - so ...

    Thanks in advance :p

    Solution Found

    After a little Googling, I installed a Cydia App called "Poof". Alternatively, if you have "BossPrefs" installed, you can use it. Basically, open either app and cycle the "Turn off to Hide switch" for Categories from On to Off to On. This should then give you the icon. I also did a reboot.

    New Issue - It seems that whenever you use Categories to change app icons or add/delete app icons, Categories disappears again, after the re-spring. Using Poof and recycling the On-Off-On switching bring Categories back.

    Very strange all this.

    Hope this helps :p

    Tried your suggestion, downloaded poof, now categories shows up in poof, but no icon anywhere. Can't do a search for it either...

    There was a new update to Categories and after upgrading and rebooting my iPhone the Categories icon reappeared.

    Read Post#6 closely

    Please note the problem can be solved and re-solved - it is just a "pain" ... I hope the app developer will fix this issue next time around :p


    Guys - MORE feedback please ...

    Thanks :p
