    How do I get these icons back?

    I have SSH installed on it but I also hid that.

    This is only a guess but maybe try deleting the customize.app.pref file so that it resets things back to default visibility settings.

    How exactly would I do this? I tried to connect with winSCP but it won't connect.

    This is easier. Open Installer. Scroll down to Dock. Load it and then open Customize. I had to do this once. Works great.

    EDIT: You hid Installer?

    Restore seems the only option unfortunately

    Get Dock if you want to hide these in future.

    to hide apps, go to the customize application, click icon display order, click the eye in the top right corner, and uncheck what you want to hide. dont hide customize, installer, or anything important. you can hide ssh.

    You pretty much blew it here. I did it once way back in September and was extremely careful ever since. I found some SSH/Terminal methods to put the icons back but ultimately just restore.

    Simple fix if SSH is active.

    SSH to iPod Touch

    cd to /Applications

    This will cause customize to come up on your iPod Touch. Now you can fix your display of the programs.

    If you do not have SSH enabled, then a restore is in your future.

    The Solution

    Greetings from Chile !!!

    I had the same trouble, I hidde the customize icon and others, well I didn´t restore my phone... Here´s the deal....

    With WinSCP go to the applications folder

    Open the customize folder (Customize.app)

    Right click in the customize file, select Custom Commands and the.. Execute

    Take a look to your iphone and customize will be opened, put the eyeball in your hidden icons and restart your iphone. Turn it on and the customize icon will be in your home screen.

    No need to restore the iphone....

    I love the iPhone...
