I jailbroke my i4S yesterday, and most of it went to plan, apart from quite a few of my apps that were in folders came out of the folders. Not sure why ??

The other thing was that after installing 'Five icon Dock', the Cydia icon disappeared from my screen, and depite several resprings, has not returned. If I do a search for Cydia, it finds it, but the icon does not show up on the screen. Any idea how to fix this too please ??

I recall that I have had similar issues with previous JB's, and eventually fixed them.

Well done JB team on your continued battle.

Found my Cydia Icon !!!

It was in a folder called Jailbreak, which is one that I created last time I jailbroke my 3GS, so it must have downloaded that from the Cydia server. Perhaps this is where all those other desktop app icons cames from too.....
