    Suddenly, these icons are on my screen.


    Any ideas? I haven't restarted to see if they go away yet. Just found it odd

    Restart and they'll go away. Those are basic JB apps -- usually, they don't show up on the SpringBoard, but sometimes when you install/update some basic system tweaks, they momentarily show up. They get blank icons because they don't have any. If you've hidden SBSettings and Activator, those icons show up too when you get into this condition.

    When making a new thread, please give an informative title, therefore people in the future can benefit from any solutions given in this thread as well.

    Yes they will be fixed on a restart (even a respring, I believe)

    They are hidden apple apps used to either test out features (cell reception, battery, etc) or preferences (iadoptout, etc) nothing to worry about, just respring and they'll go away

    You are correct and I realized that after I posted, sorry about that. If someone can change the title, please do so

    To change title, edit original post, it should give you an option to edit the thread title.

    On Tapatalk it doesn't. I'll check on my iMac when I get there

    Since getting my iPhone 5 replaced and therefore going from 6.1 to 6.1.2 and re-jailbreaking, I'm getting the hidden and blank icons appearing at least once a day. Sometimes they appear spontaneously, not as a result of any tweaking. What would cause that?
    A respring always fixes it, but it's getting annoying!

    I think it can happen too if you are installing apps from the AppStore
