    I was curious the other day as to if anyone knows of an application to show all applications hidden by SBsettings? I have been hiding more apps recently since I don't want to surpass 2 pages (i have 5 rows) of apps.

    Is there anything in Cydia that can do this for me?

    You might want to consider using Categories. It'll allow to to organize and minimize your apps down to one or two folders and let you have easy access to them.

    It would probably be easier than something that sees hidden apps (which I'm not sure exists) and more practical.

    I'll recommend Categories as well. Make sure to pick up CategoriesSB too, it makes it way faster.

    The file /private/var/mobile/Library/LibHide/hidden.plist is a list of everything hidden.

    With these two apps, can I have the categories above the dock while keeping my dock icons the same?

    Why can't you just go SBSettings>More>Hide Icons? Anything listed there as "Off" is hidden.

    Well I can. I just want something quick and easy to see instead of going through those steps.

    So how can I change the default icons? If I name a folder "games" it gets assigned a red icon. If I name it "games." it changed to the icon I like.

    Do I have to SSH in to fix that?

    To change a folder's icon just open Categories > Edit > tap Games > tap Icon > select the icon you want > Respring

    Talking about SBsettings--I downloaded the app and and for the life of me I cannot get it to open? Swiping across status bar does nothing

    Thats what I did. However heres my problem:

    Folder named "Games" shows a red icon on my springboard VS folder named "Games" shows a custom icon I chose.

    I can choose a custom icon, however if there is no period, the icon shows red on my springboard.
