    Has anyone else seen this? Respring makes them go away until I install or update another app. Tried disabling Iconoclasm and reinstalling libhide to no avail. Was not doing this yesterday, and the only thing I changed was an update in cydia, but I don't remember what they were. :(

    I have the same problem. It's pretty annoying.

    It's a known problem with libhide which sbsettings uses to hide icons. Hopefully they'll eventually fix it, until then just respring. It doesn't happen too often anyway. Usually only when installing AppStore apps or updates.

    If you can't live with it then remove libhide in cydia, but it'll remove all the programs that depend on it too like sbsettings.

    Btw I see that you're installing genius scanner. You should try jotnot it's a million times better.

    Same thing happens to me every once in awhile. A respring always fixes it. I do hope they address this in an update, but it's only a minor inconvenience.

    Genius Scanner is excellent for a free app, I always get great results with it. JotNot may be better, but it's also $5. The free version can't do PDFs or Email and has ads. The pictures don't even make it look all that much better.

    That's completely unrelated to the issue....

    As dieburnbot has already said it's an issue with libhide

    The icons disappeared because checking that option likely forced a respring upon exit..
