    I'm wanting to install some blank icons so I can have a clean first page on phone, but I can't find them in a search on Cydia.

    I have both Steffwiz & PwnCenter repository installed but nothing is coming up for them.

    I did try the iBlank one but that did nothing at all so killed that off.

    Can anyone help me please as to why they are not showing up in a search with Steffwiz & PwnCenter installed as I know Steffwiz released them ages ago in 1 2 5 10 & 20 or similar?

    Thanks..:)

    SBSetting is your best bet. It allows you to:

    a) hide icons
    b) place 12 icons in a dock

    Definitely check it out, it's under the featured apps on Cydia.

    Thanks and already have that but not wanting to hide the icons or move them all to the dock, am after the blank ones that can be used to move aorund to create blank spaces.

    Tried the iBlank again and it tells me it creates the blank icons, yet when I toggle them I see nothing, no blank icons anywhere.

    Anyone able to help me out please?

    I wish I knew. Have installed it - run it - it tells me 1 blank icon has been created - press home and repspring happens - toggle icons and no blank icon anywhere to be seen.

    I thought I should be s eeing a blank icon with the black cross so I can move it around but nothing at all shoing on any of my pages.

    Am I missing something?

    Just hold down any apps until it wiggle, you will also see the blank icon wiggle too and than you can move it around.

    As I said I do toggle the icons to have them 'wiggling' and I don't see any blank icon located anywhere, hence why I'm asking what I'm doing wrong cause can't figure it out.

    I installed iBlank and it's nowhere to be found. I've installed it and used it successfully in the past on 2.2.1 then I had all sorts of problems with it crashing my phone after I installed and deleted iNav.

    Anyone else have this problem? Is there an alternative to getting blank icons on the homescreen (not dock)?:confused:

    I'm JB on 3.0 now.

    I justed wanted to verify to the Thread Starter that I'm using iBlank on a 3GS firmware 3.1.2 blackra1n-JB.

    I like iBlank as tapping on the blank icons does nothing.

    There are two ways you can tell they are there:
    1. Press and hold an icon on the Springboard till they all start to wiggle. Then page around till you find them.
    2. Go into iTunes under the Applications Tab. You should see the blank-holes the icons create in there as well.

    Sorry for your trouble and hope this helps.
