What do you mean nothing will appear? Cydia apps won't appear? Try a reboot?

For future threads...... give your thread a title that provides a description of your issue.

If you use "need help" as your title, more people will ignore you than help you. People around here hate that.

You can change your thread title to something more appropriate by editing your first post, clicking on Advanced, and then changing your thread title.

Ok...

Well if you want the globe icon, I would go into the "Tweaks" section of Cydia, and see what's there. Keep in mind though that not everything in Cydia has been updated to reflect the changes in iOS 4, so some apps/mods/tweaks may not be fully functional yet.

I'm sorry, I'm having real trouble understanding what your problem is. Your posts are incoherent. Could you slow down and describe exactly what you did, what you expected to happen, and what actually happened? Unless you can start making more sense, I'm afraid nobody is going to be able to help you.

Try a full reboot. Maybe a respring it is just not cutting it.

Ok lets try to help you here. Vague on details.

Activator allows you to open up apps by doing something on your phone such as touching the screen in a certain way, or even shaking your phone. You probably don't need it.

If you downloaded the AT&T globe logo, you need to respring your device or just simply restart it after you have installed it.

The pixels are completely normal and everyone who uses this jailbreak has them. Those pixels are the actual jailbreak code that Comex used. He embedded the code into pixels. Crazy ain't it?

Another thing, as stated above, not ALL Cydia apps are optimized for the iPhone 4. If you download a app that cannot be used with the iPhone 4 or iOS4, it will most likely crash.

Yes.

And no problem.

Btw no one here can discuss Installous. It's essentially illegal as it basically lets you steal apps. Which is theft.

That's about all I can say.
