    I've been trying to do this for the past 2 days, and nothing works. The reason is because I want a VERY minimalistic design on my phone, but all that's left is that god damn yellow sunflower.
    SBSettings doesn't even have the Photo's app as an option for hiding, and I installed Poof! separately, and while it DID have the Photos option, it was completely ineffective, and didnt hide anything at all :mad:

    I also found another method, which involved adding the following lines of code into the Info.plist under


    But that rendered the app COMPLETELY useless. Although this did remove the icon, it also removed the accessibility to 1300 photos. I was considering using a different photo application, but then I wouldn't be able to upload photos using Facebook, and stuff like that.

    So, any of ya guiz know a solution? Or am I going to have to live with this stupid sunflower on my screen forever? ;_;

    I didn't know SBSettings wouldn't hide the Photos app, but mine doesn't either. What about creating a blank icon.png for it, you would still be able to tap that spot and open it, but you wouldn't have the icon? Or if you just don't like the sunflower icon, replace it with a better one?

    Hmm, that might work.
    How would someone go about doing that? Or maybe you could direct me to a thread about it?
    Sorry, im just not sure where to look :confused:

    This worked for me.

    install Infinidock where you can have mulitple pages on your dock the select 4 icon as normal then put photos app on page 2 and set it so its on page 1 by default then if you want photos scroll right and there it is
    hope this could work for you
