    I JB the other night, and set Cydia in my dock using Boss prefs, now I had to restore and just JB again, and of course only the Installer app is showing on my iPhone, I selected to installed both Cydia and Installer when I ran Quickpwn.

    How do I go about getting Cydia back? Can you install Boss prefs using installer?

    Thanks all :)

    First go into Cy...wait, you can't get categories that way..hmm SSH'ing seems to be the only option from MY point of view.

    Unzip the file so that you have the folder called BossPrefs which contains a folder called BossPrefs.app. SSH into your phone, go to /Applications, and copy the folder BossPrefs.app (and all of its contents) into /Applications. Be sure that permissions are set to 755, reboot, and you should see BossPrefs. Use it to access Cydia!

    No, that is the folder for AppStore apps. Find the one that contains the standard apps, like Calculator, and jailbroke apps, like Cydia.

    / is the highest level directory. You know, up from var, up from private. Double-click the up-arrow folder.

    Try rebooting again. Also, I would delete it from the AppStore apps directory.
