    So after installing a few themes from the BigBoss Repo, I resprung, like normal. Only this time, I found a bunch of white icons that said things like "Facebook profileviewer" and "SMSViewerS" and "iad" and "iadoptout". I feel like the names of the first two really could be viruses. Should I just restore and lose my jailbreak, just not to risk my data being compromised? Or are these normal things that happen? HELP! Quick!

    Same thing happened to me the other day after installing a theme. I just respringed. I've had no issues since.

    Are you guys sure? I've heard of things like iOS diagnostics and Setup white apps being added, but nothing like SMSViewerS or FacebookProfileViewer, or are those just hidden apps added by things like Facebook? Thanks :)

    it's not a virus, just a minor bug in the jailbreak I think.

    Go to SBSettings, go down to Mobile Substrate Addons, and turn off 'libhide'... this I think will make the icons you hid appear again, so you'll have to hide them with Springtomize.... That's how I solved it in the past, don't know if it's still like that.

    So if that doesn't work, just keep on googling like this: AdSheet FieldTest blank icons

    Type that and research, be brief on the search terms, and use the date option in google for recent results.

    If it only happened because of a theme, just respring and that's it, only do the above if it keeps happening after every restart.

    No virus. Happens every now and then when I buy a new theme and install it. Just respring or reboot and the whites go bye-bye.

    It happens to me whenever I delete an app through the settings app.

    You can usually make this bug permanently go away using iRetiner GUI. At least that's what I used to use back in the day. Haven't had this bug since iOS4 though.

    It happens from either Springtomize2 or SBsettings. When both of these aren't active it never happens to me. But it's so minor who cares ;)
