    Is there a way in the N45AP.plist file to hide an icon? I'd like to hide the Installer icon, as it's adding an extra row to my SpringBoard. I'd still like to be able to unhide it if I need it, though. Anyone know how?

    I would say customize.app but sadly that doesn't work on the iPod touch just yet.

    That is in no way hard, you use the same file to order the icons...

    Its realy not hard i pull the N45AP.Plist off the ipod with sftp. convert it to xml and the code is in steps. just select the app you wanna hid and cut out and past it under the hidden section. then up it back to the ipod

    You know I went in to this hack not know much about mac stuff. I am a windows user :-( till i become rich that is. but anyways I have only played around with ssh stuff and that was mainly *inx type stuff. but before i hacked i read and searched and read and googled and read until i understood not only my part in the hack but the underling hack. and because i did this and understood how my ipt was being hacked by touchfree thank you guys btw everything after that was cake. i already had downloaded a windows sftp client and putty to do ssh. i had a txt file of commands to use in ssh and a sample of code. now i know that im not stupidest person out there but im not the smartest either but i do have the common senses to learn what im getting my selfinto. ok this might be a rant but i don't care i just keep seeing post of the same questions over and over and im thinking did these guys even try and find out on there own i mean there is information all over the web and step by step instructions on everything but i digress not even sure if i should post this now............ yeah what the heck i will after a spell check.
