    Unhappy After Jailbreaking my iPad, it now reboots with a different layout and resolution

    After Jailbreaking my iPad 2 iOS 5.0.1 using Absinthe for the jailbreak, whenever I reboot, it loads up in a manner that suggests it thinks it is an iPhone / iPod (strange resolution, mispositioned lock screen, bizarre icon layout). This gets resolved after restarting springpad however, any changes previously made to the icon layout (including putting them into new folders etc) seem to get "forgotten" and even changed. For example, several items from my games folder keep coming back out.

    What could be happening and how do I fix my iPad while maintaining my Absinthe jailbreak?

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    I would certainly look into f.lux. Not sure I can see anywhere that it is noted as iPad compatible. Developers have a very bad habit of saying compatible with "devices", but meaning "phones".

    Folder Icons may also need looked at. See the note at the top here - FolderIcons (Free) - Change Your Folders’ Appearance

    Try removing those using Cydia and see if it fixes the problem after a reboot.

    This happened to me before i had f.lux installed.(I have it now, works fine afaik) I also have foldericons, winterboard, sbsettings and activator in common with OP. Maybe this helps. My geuss would be foldericons, but it does not anoy me enough to find out; I don't reboot often and a simple respring works around.

    Also had the same problem here and hope that someone can give me some suggestion on how to repair this. It only uses 1/6 area of the screen.

    Also happen to my wife iPhone 4s but i successfully solved it by entering safe mode via Activator and uninstalled the most recent apps that install. Reinstall it back, update everything and ok.. For ipad2, dont know how.
    TQ.

    If you have foldericons installed, uninstall it and report back if it worked please. If not, just report back what tweaks you have in common with the OP, please.

    You can respring with sbsettings. That solves it untill you reboot.

    The advice after jailbreaking, directly search for sbsetting on cydia and install it.. All the tools that came in the package will help you to prevent from experiencing the problem that i had last night.

    No, but if you run into it (the problem of the strange layout of the springboard), you can respring it, as a workaround. If you report what tweaks you have installed, especially ones in common with the OP, maybe we can find out what tweak causes the problem.
