Hi, sorry I’ve not been on here for a couple of days.
You will need to SSH in to your phone and navigate to:
/User/Library/Preferences/
and delete:
com.apple.springboard.plist

Be careful whenever you access your phone this way, you can seriously screw things up!
If your not sure how to do it, you will need OpenSSH [cydia] and CyberDuck [mac]
Or use DiskAid [mac, £ or $]
