    Just limera1n'd my phone and all of the icons for the cydia apps (winterboard, bite sms, etc.) are just white blocks. I used pkg backup to restore and it did for the most part. But I have no icons. WTF

    You have to respring or reboot again. This fixed it for me.

    Oh yeah, and BiteSMS decided not to come along...neither did my lockscreen themes...

    This jailbreak is epic. Shoulda stuck with 4.0

    I had the same issue after using Pkg Backup. The icons just showed up normal after a while. Don't know what I did.

    Jailbreak was epic. I have JB about 7 iPhones and an iPad, no issues whatsoever. I just didn one 30 minutes ago for my nephew. Maybe user error?

    Mine did the same, after I rebooted, and opened Cydia all my icons were back. Not sure which one worked.

    Same here, I used AptBackup and all my icons where white. I resprung and they came back. Tested and all seem to work ok as well. :)

    I've seen this occasionally and a respring has always take care of it. As for missing apps and themes were they items installed through Cydia or SSH'ed over. If SSH'ed over PkgBackup would not restore those and it works on apps installed through Cydia. For example, for the Glasklart theme I have a personal theme with personal folder prefernces, etc. I had to re SSH it over, PkgBackup did not restore this as there was not a repo to download it from.

    I didn't use PkgBackup but the white icon issue happened to me when installing mobile terminal 472. It works fine but I didn't want it like that so I found the standard retina display icon and manually applied it through SSH.

    This is the icon if this happens to anyone else. The uploaded file is named correctly but just in case it should be Icon@2x.png.
