    Hey everyone,

    I just had something strange happen to my iphone. I have an iPhone 4 running iOS 4.0. The phone is jailbroken.

    I checked the app store for updates and had two of them. I hit update all and the phone began downloading the updates. I shifted to my second page of apps to check the progress and out of nowhere I see the following apps:

    Pressing any of the white washed apps brings up either a black or white screen but nothing happens. Pressing the ipod+nike app does nothing. I cannot delete any of the apps when pressing and holding.

    Has anyone else had this problem? They seemed to appear only after running the updates in the app store. I am going to try to see how I can get rid of these... very bizarre

    You better restore the phone and remove JB to be safe.

    I think you may have either been hacked or experienced a glitch. Either way, a restore is probably your best bet.

    I've gotten that twice myself, just a simple restart of the phone makes them go away
