    Hey, these weird loading like static icons have appeared either side of my phone button in the dock...1 occasionally appears next to the sms icon but goes after a few seconds. No shut down or reboot gets rid of them. Any advice....has this happened to anyone before?

    Have you checked the theme you installed for any information on them? Maybe they are part of the theme.

    That is the Backgrounder's "active app" badge. It indicates that the app is active in the background. If you don't want to see it, go into Backgrounder's settings to turn it off. (make sure you update to the latest version of Backgrounder)

    Thanks!

    Thanks, I did just update backgrounder via cydia, it must be a new feature as Ive never seen it before, either that or it activated the feature via the update.

    Anyway, thanks for the help

    Just updated backgrounder after reading this thread. The badges are very useful -- thanks for the tip.

    With the new update to backgrounder, you disable the badges if you don't like them.

    Off Topic, but I was wondering what icons and dock theme you are using?
    Thanks
