[iPhone 2.0] Any way to delete the contacts icon?
I pwned my 1st gen iPhone with PwnageTool 2.0.1 to use the 2.0 firmware, and for some reason PwnageTool (I think?) put a dedicated contacts icon in my springboard. But, since I don't have Cydia, SSH, etc. installed is there a way to remove it without re-pwning it? No X comes up when the icons jiggle.
(P.S. I know it's the rules, but why do so many posts begin with [PwnageTool] if it's in the PwnageTool forum? Seems redundant.)
Jes you can, SSH on iPhone and delete address book in Aplications
Or you can edit this in PWNAGE process
Contacts has always been a part of the iphone os, it was just a hidden icon before. In 2.0 apple decided to unhide it, so it being there has nothing to do with pwnage. The only way I know of removing it is installing poof and hiding it but since you dont have cydia then thats a no go for you.
I just hide the apps that I don't want (Stocks, iTunes Store). You need;
SSH (on iPhone)
FTP program (Mac)
Property List Editor (Mac)
Connect to your iPhone via FTP and go to (using Stocks as an example);
In the folder you will find the file "info.plist" (there is one of these for every application). You need to edit this file with "Property List Editor". You might need to copy it to your computer first but Transmit (FTP), for example, lets you edit it directly on the phone.
Anyway, open up the "info.plist" file in Property List Editor. Then do the following;
1) Click on "Root" and then click the "New Child" button.
2) Name this new entry "SBAppTags" exactly.
3) Click on the Value setting for SBAppTags (the up/down arrows) and select "Array". A triangle will appear to the left of SBAppTags
4) With SBAppTags selected, click the triangle so it points down, then click the "New Child" button. A sub-item named "0" will be created beneath SBAppTags
5) In the Value box for "0" type "hidden" and press Enter
6) Save this file back to the iPhone (in the same location - Stocks.app folder)
Reboot your phone and Stocks will have disappeared. To get it back you can just re-edit the info.plist file and remove the "0" entry under SBAppTags.
Warning : do so at your own risk!
