    The short answer: Live with unorganized apps or restore and re-jailbreak.

    This happened to me a couple of times, when I did my first few jailbreaks. After having to do a restore and re-jailbreak a couple times, I've started to just take it easy. Don't spend 20 mins. installing a dozen apps from cydia and the app store, even though we all know it's very addictive(that's when things would go wrong for me). That definitely includes rebooting after installing stuff. I'm not saying baby the phone and don't use it, just try not to do too much at once. After the second time it happened to me, I tried to just take it easy, and I haven't had the problem since.

    I've heard that it is due to adding corrupted files, but I've added pretty much the same files every time I jailbreak.

    Good luck!

    Sorry, but this is horrible advice, just because we choose to jailbreak does not mean we simply have to put up with and "Accept" when filesystems on our phone become corrupt. The icons moving around is most likely due to Kate, or anything you have installed from Installer and RipDev. My advice would be to uninstall those apps and don't download anything from Installer/RipDev ever again.

    Having never used installer, and from the lack of a rip dev source in my cydia, I have to disagree. And, after the first time my icons went rouge, I uninstalled everything that I installed from cydia (everything but the default packages) and my icons would still rearrange automatically after a reboot.

    Please jcde7ago, let me know if you were able to fix by uninstalling some packages. And if so which packages?
