    I installed Circular, and it automatically installed WinterBoard alongside it.

    After the phone rebooted, I decided I didn't like it, so I uninstalled them both.

    Only for this to happen!

    Square icons!

    How do I fix this? :(

    SSH isn't fun for most people so let me suggest an alternative method.

    Up until point 3, you should be able to follow every step. If not, you're out of luck, and you should just do a full restore, after which you can rejailbreak the device. If that's not an option try the following:

    1. Uninstall Circular via Cydia. This will remove all Circular files from your device.
    2. Download the original icon pack - DOWNLOAD
    3. Install iFile via Cydia, ignore the register notifications and Setup a little Webserver using the button on the bottom left
      It looks something like this:
      [​IMG]

    4. If you've done that correctly, it's going to load a few things, particularly this:

      [​IMG]

      After which you should only pay attention to the last address, as you can see in the picture, for me that's: "http://192.168.192.21:10000"

    5. Do not press "Done" leave your iPhone alone for now.
    6. Depending on what your last address was, enter it as a URL into your address bar, open a new tab if you need to. Something like this should now show in your browser:
      [​IMG]

    7. Navigate all the way to 'System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MobileIcons.framework' directory. Simply by clicking on the directories.
    8. Once you've done that you probably noticed there's an option to upload files at the bottom of every page, make sure you're in the directory mentioned above and upload the originalicons_hazardousit.zip file you downloaded earlier. If everything goes right you should see this:
      [​IMG]

    9. You can press "Done" now on your iPhone and navigate to yet again 'System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MobileIcons.framework' but this time on your iPhone obviously.
    10. If you get to the directory correctly, scroll all the way to the bottom and look for the originalicons_hazardousit.zip file.

      [​IMG]

    11. All there is left to do is press originalicons_hazardousit.zip after which it shows you a set of options, make sure you use "Unachiver" if done right it'll prompt something along the lines of this:

      [​IMG]

    12. Now reboot your device and you're done.

      If you don't feel like doing that, do a full restore because this is probably the easiest way, aside from using SSH.

      Good luck!

    Even that looks too complicated for me to do confidently. I better just restore my iPhone then :( That'll defo fix the issue, won't it?

    Thank you for your time and effort typing all of that up for me, though. I appreciate it.

    It's actually not that complex and takes mere minutes to achieve, the explanation is just thorough and clearcut, I did that solely for the purpose of making sure nothing goes wrong when someone attempts to go through it. Did you at least try it? It doesn't matter I guess it serves as a good reference to whoever else encounters the same issues.

    Try being more careful with doing things like this, if you're not that techsavy.
    I was only able to type it all up because I wasn't busy at the moment. Happy to do it though.

    I got to be honest with you friend, if following instructions is too complicated your not going to be able to keep a JB'n iPhone for very long. Once Apple patches JB you WILL have to following instructions to get things fixed, and will NOT be able to just restore. Now is a good time to practice on your device since you can still restore if things get really bad. Just some friendly advice, that's all.

    Only jailbroke for 1 reason. Colour profiles. I'm sure there wouldn't be too many issues.

    You originally posted about an issue caused by an icon theme, then later said you only jailbroke for the color profiles. I'm guessing that seemed like a contradiction, because if your only interest was color profiles, what were you doing messing around with theming?

    I do understand that once you jailbreak, you do get the urge to try out things other than what originally interested you in jailbreaking. However, if you find it difficult to follow instructions as clear as ones that were posted here, I have to agree with the other posters that jailbreaking may not be for you. This time, you are able to restore, but once Apple releases 7.1, you'd have to either follow the instructions posted here, or lose your jailbreak.

    Yes, I played around with other tweaks for the time being, but ultimately, Colour Profiles is the only reason I jailbroke my iPhone.

    I finally got the chance to sit down properly and read the instructions on my Macbook, as opposed to quickly scrolling through them earlier, when I was on my iPhone.

    Carried it out, and it's all fixed now, so thank you @ the person who posted those instructions for me.

    I don't think there's any need for arrogant comments like "maybe you shouldn't be jailbreaking", etc. We all had to start somewhere.

    Glad to hear you were able to figure out those instructions. And sorry if the "maybe you shouldn't be jailbreaking" reaction comes off as arrogant, but I think the reason why I and other people say that is because while we all have to start somewhere, when I started, I came in knowing I will sometimes have to read and follow arcane instructions. It's like if you went to a fitness camp and complained about having to do a 100 push-ups, if you see what I mean?

    Hope you won't get into any further situations needing complicated steps to fix, but if you do, hope it's a little less daunting the next time around.

    How come I won't be able to restore anymore, once Apple releases 7.1, by the way?

    Or did you mean that I wouldn't be able to restore and then re-jailbreak?

    I meant you won't be able to restore and rejailbreak. Jailbreaking is fine while the current iOS is jailbreakable -- any time you run into a problem, you just restore and rejailbreak. But once Apple patches the jailbreak, which they inevitably do, it becomes much harder to hang onto your jailbreak. One wrong step, and you are forced to restore, then it's bye-bye to the jailbreak.

    There is a small chance that Apple might not patch it in 7.1, but for now, it's better to assume they will.

    Could there not be a new jailbreak made for 7.1?

    7.1 looks as if it's going to iron out a lot of bugs, so I'd prefer to update to 7.1 anyway.

    There could be or there might not be, we won't know until 7.1 gets released, and the jailbreak teams have a chance to study it.

    I do want the bug fixes said to be comiing in 7.1 myself. But if you do update, there's always a chance there will be no jailbreak for it.

    iOS 7.1 will most likely have the exploits used to JB 7.0.4 patched. Once 7.1 is released you wont be able to install/restore 7.0.4 any longer Apple will force you to update to 7.1. Once this happens if you mess up your device you will have to fix it, a restore will install 7.1 - 7.0.4 will no longer be an option. This will take away your JB until a new JB for 7.1 comes out which could take forever.

    Now with all that said if you think well I have 7.0.4 downloaded on my hard drive I will just restore it - that wont work once 7.1 is released. Apple signs iOS and that version will no longer be allowed to be installed on your iDevices. How do they do that? Its checks the signature on Apples servers before it will install.
