    I recently carried out a Cydia, Installer and App Store update of my installed applications. After completing it some of my dock icons are now stuck with a sort of 'Refresh' type symbol in the bottom left of each icon. See the attached screenshot.

    Can anyone tell me how to get rid of them? I have tried moving the icons around and rebooting the phone, but they still appear and won't go away. :mad:

    those are the apps running in the background, there should be some setting in sbsettings and/or backgrounder.. search some more, I'm sure you'll find it.

    Yep, they're the apps that are set by Backgrounder to run in the background. Like the above poster said, there should be a section in the latest version of Backgrounder that lets you turn them off.
