    Someone posted the file to download in the "Post your Latest Springboard Thread". But you have to know some coding to get it to work right. I downloaded it and looked at the code, I'm too tired to get all riled up about it so I'm leaving it for later. If I find that link again I'll link it here.

    /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/N45AP.plist

    You have to convert it to non-binary first somehow, then open it. It's an XML file containing a list of applications in order on the SpringBoard. Any not listed there get put in some random order at the end. You need to know their COM Identifiers (i.e. com.apple.mobilemail is for Mail.app). Once you are done, put it back on the iTouch in the same place (you do NOT need to convert back to binary, just leave it as a text file, XML.

    I just told you.

    /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/N45AP.plist

    You have to convert it to non-binary first somehow, then open it. It's an XML file containing a list of applications in order on the SpringBoard. Copy and paste them to move them around. Any not listed there get put in some random order at the end. You need to know their COM Identifiers (i.e. com.apple.mobilemail is for Mail.app). Once you are done, put it back on the iTouch in the same place (you do NOT need to convert back to binary, just leave it as a text file, XML.

    Aaah. I thought you meant SummerBoard would do it too. Far too much work! :(
