My iPad has been acting weird since I jb. This is my first time jb. About ten times this week it would randomly respring into safe mode then I would have to restart. Last night after it resprung it seems like my springboard went back to my screen from before I jailbreaked and put a lot of apps I had in folders to the end not in a folders. Now my photos icon is all white. What's going on?

The tweaks I downloaded are:
- springtomize
- adblocker
- barrel
- fullscreen for safari
- infinfolders
- activator
- protube hd
- bitesms

Thanks for your help!

The Blank Icons usually go away after a Respring. If that doesn't work, install iWipeCache. As for the random Respringing into Safe Mode, your guess is as good as mine.

Running iwipecache fixed the photos icons. Thanks. Any negative to running that regularly?

iWipeCache sounds like it just clears the phone's cache. I don't see a problem in doing that regularly but if you see a white icon again, a respiring should be your first option. It's easier to do and it fixes it 99% of the time.

This is how i fix this problem.

If you don't have SBS Settings, you should install it.

Goto SBS Settings options.

Scroll all the way down and find System Options.

Press/Click on Fix User Dir Permissions.

Close SBS Settings, your device should auto Respring.

It should be fixed. That's how I do it anyways.

I know this is an old thread, but I still see iWipe Cache recommended every now and then.

It is an old program from iOS 3.x that doesn't do anything under iOS 5 except Respring. If you already have something like SBSettings, you don't need to install iWipe Cache.

iWipe Cache only resprings, and nothing more. It doesn't clean any caches. Many people report that it "works", simply because the act of respringing refreshes their cache (and not iWipe Cache itself).
