    I just jailbroke my 1st gen iPhone via QuickPwn. I went into Cydia and installed Winterboard. It installed and prompted me to restart the springboard.

    Now there isnt an icon. Anyone else exp this??

    I also noticed that the Cydia homescreen wasnt responsive when I clicked on anything, so I had to get Winterboard though System>Winterboard.

    If you go to manage>packages does it show up there as being installed?

    Have you ever had it before and used Poof or anything?

    I had a similar problem, I had to SSH into my phone and delete com.apple.mobile.installation.plist which is in /var/mobile/Library/Caches

    that's just weird... perhaps categories from back in 1.1.4? The prefs file could have been restored if you restored from backup in iTunes.

    Dang... sorry...

    Yeah it was weird. I have never used Catagories and when I upgraded to 2.1 I set it up as a new phone.

    It happened to my iPhone 3G too. I Can't see the Cydia apps icons. I've installed Categories and Winterboard. I've already done what you said but didn't work for me :(

    Install GUICache so you can clear that cache more easily if you need to next time.

    now i realized that the problem is happening with categories and WinterBoard. I've installed the guicache and the icon appeared. The same happened with MacMan. But the Categories and WinterBoard, no way --'

    you have to install "BossPref" and go to "poofs" in the application and turn on winterboard after you have winterboard installed.

    I had this problem for 2 days! fustrated the crap out of me. :eek:

    I have no way to test this, but my suggestion was to use SBSettings/Poof to hide/unhide the icon.
