Icon glitch I am experiencing - help please!

I'd say at least once or twice a day when I click an icon to open an app, rather than open it sends the icons into jitter (delete) mode. I can't seem to figure out why this is. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

Perhaps you're holding the icon a wee bit too long?

You have to be firm yet quick.

You need to tap and hold the icon for an obviously long amount of time to get it to jiggle vs just tapping. You are either holding it way too long or your screen is messed up.

Yeah I think my screen might be messed up. Is that something buying a new LCD could fix? I wanted to anyway bc there is this scratch.

I barely tap the icon, nowhere near long enough to activate jitter mode.

Is there any chance it could be anything other than the screen? I am jailbroken, but I can't see that really effecting it.

I would revert back to stock to test if it was the jailbreak before buying a new screen. But it's up to you. Which phone is it? If its a 4/4s it could be a simple 1hr fix for $70 to replace the screen/digitizer.

They are very high quality and hard to distinguish from the OEM screens. If you want to know how much, stop being lazy and look at the website.
