    Migrate/ Convert structure from Folder Enhancer to Stock iOS folders & Save SpringBoard Layout?

    Current:
    iOS-7.1.1 - Jailbroken
    Target:
    iOS 9.0.2 or 8.4/.1
    ..

    ** FE Related: **
    - I disabled all the Switches inside FE
    -- Folders show where they were with 3x3 layout inside them. Until this point no problem with folders.
    - When I uninstalled FE {or disabled FE in Mobile Substrate in iCleaner Pro), except a few folders {I suspect these were made earlier}, all of my folders disappeared.
    - I am wondering if FE enhances iOS stock folders or simply replaces their creation by iOS?

    ** Reinstall FE for Folder Structure + R&D on how FE stores it: **
    - Somehow I was able to recover them after reinstalling FE and then using restore in 'BackIt'.

    - I exported all the FE files folders {that show in Cydia} from Library.. /MobileSubstrate /PreferenceBundles /PreferenceLoaders and went through the Plists and could not find anywhere that FE stores 'this' 'folder' information.

    - Does FE store this folder with icons mapping information somewhere? Or does it use stock iOS mapping and add on only?
    - I thoughe FE only enhanced/ added to Stock Folders not "bypass" their creation completely.

    ** Migrate/ Convert from FE to Stock iOS Folders: **
    - If so, I am comfortable with XML/ XSL editing and can iFunbox into iPhone and convert FE mapping into Stock iOS mapping if needed. I am guessing its just a different template?

    Please let me know how I could take current folder mapping & locations and make it Stock iOS as I don’t want tweaks & jailbreaks for folders.

    Please just guide me and I will do the effort.

    ** SpringBoard Layouts: **

    - What apps/ tweaks/ files can I use to 'Store/ Backup & Restore' SB Layouts that include Stock iOS folder structure that iOS and iTunes will recognize?

    - Are the following outlined files still valid to do that? How & where does iOS now store SB Folder & App Icon layouts?


    PS:
    Old Stock iOS SpringBoard related:
    - I remember we used to back up these certain folders & files as they were said to be used by Stock iOS to store SpringBoard icon etc layouts.
    Is this still correct/ valid?

    SpringBoard Icon & Folder Layout
    ? /private/var/mobile/Library/SpringBoard/
    ? /User/Library/SpringBoard/*
    ? /SpringBoard/
    ? applicationstate.plist and
    ? IconSupportState.plist

    My experience with FolderEnhancer is if you uninstall it, you cannot get back your springboard layout.
