OS3.0 glitch: 12 app pages

I've discovered a glitch in the OS3.0. Somehow I got 12 app pages from time to time. Normally after I restart my iPod Touch.
I move the build-in apps Weather, Stocks, Voice Memo, Contacts, Video and Music off the 11th page to make some room for additional apps. After a power-cycle the Voice-Notes App pops into the first app page and moves the last app of the first page to a new page, creating now 12 app pages.

Did anyone experience the same?

Besides spaming about your way to get free stuff... what has your reply to do with the actual thread?

I was asking if anyone has experienced this too.
I still have to test if this allows for 13 or more app pages...

Actually, I've heard that you can go over 11 pages of apps, you just have to search for them with spotlight, but haven't heard of an actual 12th page 'til now.

That is so beast.

The exact same thing also happened when i upgraded to OS 3.0.

If the world didn't suck, we'd all fall off.
But life's made better because of iPods.

Doesn't the 3GS have more pages than 11?

I was sure I read somewhere that it did due to it's higher processing power able to load all the icons.

So maybe the 2g touch is supposed to be getting a bump since it used to be the fastest but the glitches in 3.0 might prevent it from happening.

In the beta build on 3.0 there was a redeem button in the appstore. It was in the version that was available to download but then it magically disappeared one day

Well the 12th page is only available if I move the build-in apps over the edge of the 11th page and then sync or reboot!
Other apps are just doodeling in the nirvana, never to be seen again (as it was possible in 2.2.1)....
But as my screens are filling I'm going to try to get to 13 pages

EDIT: The redeem button is still there. I redeemed a code last week on my iPod using copy&paste

The redeem button is in the iTunes app, not the appstore app!

It's supposed to be in both.

in the 3.0GM build the "update" button of the appstore was a "more" button. It also let you edit the buttons at the bottom of the appstore. No matter what the icons always reset to the default though.

Right before 3.0 was out for everyone to get the "more" button disappeared and became update.

It's a glitch in the 3.0 firmware that it isnt there anymore... unless the glitch was that it was STILL there and shouldn't have been...

Done the same way as I described it in the first post.
