What do you guys make of the iphone and mail icons with the process bar? Look at image.
They are badges for backgrounder and you can disable them in backgrounders settings. See this thread:
I haven't heard of that app. I'm assuming it is a jailbreak app that lets you run apps in the background?
The badges are indeed from Backgrounder, which is an "app" or a "package," available through Cydia and Icy on jailbroken devices, which adds code to selected applications (like Pandora, Last.fm, or any other app store or jailbreak app) to keep them running in the background after you've pressed the home button. To turn backgrounding on or off you launch/open the desired app and hold down the home button for a few seconds.
The badges can be removed in the Backgrounder preferences. They show you which app has a process running in the background so that you don't exhaust your RAM by backgrounding too many apps because you forgot you had something else backgrounded.
