    Were you able to solve this issue? I'm not sure what I'd recommend, other than using FileZilla to access your Pre via SSH. That will give you full access to your device, and you'd be able to see all of the hidden files and folders (which you cannot see using USB mode).

    You can also use Filezilla to search for every file named appinfo.json on your device. There will be plenty, I'm sure, but your missing file may be sitting in a strange place that would make it stand out.

    P.S. FYI enabling SSH access to your Pre is super handy anyway, so you may want to consider it even if you found the file already.

    Rob,

    I installed FileZilla and was able to locate the file in the root directory (aka "/"). It was the only appinfo.json stored in that directory and was easy to remove. You were also right about SSH access being super handy. Had it not been for my mistake, I may not have discovered how useful SSH access is.

    For what it's worth, I restarted my phone prior to deleting the file and did not encounter any problems.

    Thanks for your help Rob!

    i have been trying to hide Language picker (regional settings) for days now, but it wont hide.
    I have tried "visible": false 100 different ways (with/without quotes around the false), at the end of the j.son file, in the middle, beginning. Nothing. It refuses to hide.
    Am I doing something wrong?

    Cool! I'm glad you were able to find the file. I'm not sure that that file would have caused you any trouble, but like you, it would have bugged me knowing it was sitting in there somewhere. I'm glad you stumbled upon SSH access this way, too. It's awesome.

    This sounds weird, but I think something may have changed in the Language Picker app following the 1.4.5 update. I had trouble hiding that app again after updating to 1.4.5, but I had been able to hide it previously.

    I finally gave up and downloaded the entire Language Picker (Regional Settings) app to my PC for safe keeping and then deleted the folder from my device. I haven't noticed any problems since doing that, and I don't miss it one bit.

    I don't think it has anything to do with the naming conventions. I have hidden all of the apps listed above with no issues. The Language Picker app has only recently given me trouble when trying to hide it, which makes me suspect it has something to do with the update to 1.4.5. I have not confirmed that, though.

    it must be a 1.4.5 thing then, as I have tried putting the statement in various formats (with/without quotes) and in various locations, but no way to hide that stubborn icon.

    Rob--moving the directory to that archive directory you suggested would get it off the screen, no? Similar to what you did in moving it to your pc.

    I think it must be. I was able to hide it just fine prior to the 1.4.5 update, but I have had similar experience to yours following the update.

    Yes, that should work and would be just as good. My understanding is that webOS only looks for apps in /usr/palm/applications and /media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications. App folders placed anywhere else on the device should not show up in the launcher.

    The one exception I've noticed to this is the Sprint portal app. Moving the folder will prevent the app from being opened, but a Sprint icon will remain in the launcher (albeit missing the icon logo file that is in the app folder) until you delete a file named "12022008" from either or both of the following locations: /var/luna/launchpoints and /usr/luna/launchpoints.
