    I jailbroke my iPhone a few days ago and I just found out about this categories app that puts icons into folders to save space and such.

    I am interested in this application, but I have a quick question.

    I understand that if you forget to take the icons out of the folders if you delete categories or restore to stock that the icons will still be on the iphone, you just wont be able to open them.

    If my iPhone freezes or something and I have to restore, what will I have to do to get the icons back?

    Na, I did that exact thing today.

    Recovered/Wiped Phone, JailBroke, Restored from Backup, Installed SBSettings and went into hidden icons and re-enabled all the hidden (categorised) icons.

    I'd heard the same thing, that's why I haven't used that app. I'd love to have my icons in folders because I'm tired of swiping through 8 pages :/

    The worst thing that can happen is the White Apple Logo of Death, making it necessary to restore again.

    It can't really cause any damage--just inconvenience more than anything.

    Just remember to empty your folders before making any OS changes.

    Sometimes that happens; sometimes it does not. Worst case scenario you can delete the entire folder. Can cause a mess but i have never had anything as serious as a restore happen.
