    After I reboot by pressing and hold lock & home buttons, all folder I made with FE were gone and all icons were arranged by alphabetical order. :eek:
    I have more than 200 apps on my iphone.
    So it was really pain to reorganize it. :mad:
    Anyone ever had this issue?
    If so, any solution to prevent happening this again?
    Thanks for your help.

    PS. My iPhone 4 is 4.1 JB with LR.

    Folderenhancer doesn't support 4.1 yet expected at the end of the month.

    Have you checked FE on cydia lately? :confused:
    It's been updated and supports iOS 4.1 as well.

    It supports 4.1, I'm using it without issue.

    If you are using the pre 4.1 release it could explain the issue. Check Cydia for version 1.1.

    Pressing and holding home and lock is NOT a reboot. It is a reset, and there is a big difference. Just like your dekstop or laptop computer, if you reboot normally, the operating system does everything it can to shut down and restart in a clean and controlled manner. Files are properly closed etc.
    When you reset the device like this there is just no telling what state files will be in. Sure, 9 times out of 10 you will be lucky, but there will always be that one time when open files are corrupted.
    This is probably what you experienced... You should only really reset the device if it has completely hung.
    If you need to do a "real reboot", then either use the reboot option on the power menu for sbsettings, OR simply shut down the phone by holding power until you get the slider, then power up again once shutdown is complete.

    Hope that helps.

    I've been confused "reset" and "reboot" for last 3 years.
    I've thought "reset" was simply better way of rebooting iphone.
    Now I know I can simply "reboot" not "reset".
    And you are right about reset can cause loss or corruption of data.
    Now I can avoid future data lost by confusing "reset" and "reboot".
    Thank you very much. It was great help.

    No. You need IconSupport. It's a must have with FolderEnhancer or anything else that renders a non-standard dock or springboard layout.
