    Hi folks. New to the forums and new to iPhone. I have just upgraded from a 4G iPod 20GB and a SE phone to a lovely new 16GB 3GS.
    I've 'made it ra1n' and installed a few bits and pieces from Cydia. I particularly like the ability to skin etc once jail-broken.
    So my problem - I have installed Categories v2.27 and made 4 folders for my homescreen. My intention is to have ALL my icons inside the folders except for 3 accross the bottom - Phone, Mail and iPod.
    However, my Camera and Photos icon remain on the home screen. I have added them to a category and re-sprung, but they are still there on the home screen AND inside the folder.
    What is also odd about these icons is that they appear as question marks within the categories app. They appear as normal on the Home screen and in the folder, but yeah, they are question marks in the list in Categories. The iPod icon is a question mark too, but for now I want to leave it in the default spot.
    Does anyone have any suggestions?
    I have emptied the folders and removed Categories and then re-done it all but those 2 icons still behave this way.
    I even tried buying the CategoriesSB mod for 99c incase it might fix it but it did not.
    Any help would be very greatly appreciated!
    THANKS :)

    edit - I found this has happened to someone else (a fellow aussie on whirpool - http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies-archive.cfm/1319383.html ) but I don't think I deleted any folders with icons in them like that person syas they did. I might have, but I odn't think I did.

    If you use SBSettings (which is highly recommended), you can hide icons under "more" settings to hide those stubborn icons. It should still show within categories folders

    thanks. I ended up doing exactly that earlier today, but I thought I'd leave the topic as is to see if there is a fix.

    It's funny it's exactly the 3 same icons as the poster on whirpool forums too....???

    I am just now learning to SSH themes etc, so I might find a way to sort it out properly....
