I installed a couple of apps but the icons didnt appear on the springboard.
I navigated to /private/var/mobile/Applications and amongst the sub folders there are the apps. e.g. under /private/var/mobile/Applications/09AEA456-5AD3-4DF9-9CE8-FFF5DEB97EBB is one app etc.
I also have duplicate apps where i have attempted the installation more than once in the hope the icon would appear.
Now the question is... how do i unisntall these bloody apps?
I can delete the sub folders, documents, application.app, library, temp. But i cant delete the parent folder (e.g. 09AEA456-5AD3-4DF9-9CE8-FFF5DEB97EBB).
Also does meely deleting these 'uninstall' them?
Oh im on 2.2 jailbroken and yellowsn0wed. Apps wee installed using insatallous.
interestingly the icons appear (repeatedly) in categories, but not on the springboard.
any ideas how i can get them to show on springboard?
That looks screwed up a bit. categories may be the reason.

If you do so, after jb in iTunes setup as a new iphone not "restore data from a backup". You might get back the unwanted screwed behavior otherwise.
thanks for the reply Volks
i only jbd it for the first time yesterday.
thing is i couldnt see the icons on the springboard, and this was before categories was installed.
as i mentioned above the multiple installation in Installous meant that the file structure includes multiple instances of the same app. But why would this not show on the springboard? I dont think it categories as this problem existed before i installed categories....
I had the same problem last night, after jailbreaking to 3.0 using redsn0w .72
I installed the same app through installous like 3 times, no icons appeared, but all were listed by categories.
Using the clues above, I used ssh (a program called funbox) to get into my iphone's directory structure, and navigated to...
there were a long list of folders, but by looking at each one, I could see what app it was (there's usually a folder that will say the app name).
I just deleted the 3 duplicate apps, restarted my iphone, and the offending icons were gone.
Worked like a charm.
