    I have a jailbroken iPhone 5. While,moving icons around I noticed somehow I may have inadvertently deleted Settings. It doesn't show on the search screen even. Any ideas?

    It is not possible to delete it, but it is more likely that you have hidden it, either using SBSettings, Poof!, Springtomize, or another similar tweak which has the capability to hide icons.

    Use whichever one of these you have installed to un-hide the Settings app and you should be back to normal.

    Can you tell me how I can find and unhide it with those? And others if you have recommendations? I installed Poof AFTER and it claimed it was unhidden lol so I deleted Poof, and iFile doesn't see it.
    If I did hide it it was unintentional.
    Thanks in advance for your,rapid answer.

    SB Settings shows it as unhidden. I've been through the folders multiple times and the left page search doesn't find it.

    If it is hidden, it won't appear in search.

    Try hiding it with SBSettings, respring / reboot, then un-hide it and respring / reboot again.

    Hi MeMe - not sure why you are responding to a 3 year old thread about a jailbroken iPhone - should be closed by the mods. If you have a specific question, please start a new thread in an appropriate thread - Dave :)

    Those terms you're wondering about are related to solving problems on a jailbroken iPad. However, this thread is almost 3 years old and the original participants have not returned. If you have any questions about jailbroken devices you'll be better off starting your own thread in the Hacking Forum.

    With that, this thread is now closed.
