    Anyone else having this problem? Respringing the device temporarily fixes the problem but it comes back. Also it is not always the same icon, safari, camera and weather mostly. This problem occurs on both my iPad 2 and iPhone 4s

    I had it affect iMessage. The icon was white instead of the usual green. It was an transient issue and I don't know what I did to resolve it. I had rebooted a bunch of times when I was restoring my Cydia apps. Maybe that's what did it.

    Cheers, Dan

    I am also noticing a few blank icons added to my springboard after installing any app using Edited by Moderator - Reference to a piracy app. I'm getting an icon called setup, another called message+ and one called data something?

    Rebooting helps most of the time. I had the cydia icon go blank and reboot wouldn't help. Letting cydia refresh it's packages fixed it (cydia>changes>refresh).

    Installing a piracy app may well be your problem. We do not support piracy on these forums nor do we offer help to pirates. Please read the forum rules.

    One of the suggestions a member of the "Dream Team" made about the white icons problem is to go to Cydia and install something. Anything, even a free tweak. Then, restoring the iPad and the white icons should be gone.

    Good luck and let us know how you get on.

    I'm not using it for piracy. I'm using it to get apps that we're pulled from the store and a banking app for my Australian account.

    You can't mention any form of piracy here! Read the rules!

    White icons appear because the springboard icon cache is corrupting. You need an app which wipes the cache. There are three I know of which do this...

    1) "Respring" - A free tweak from Cydia - Puts an icon on your springboard which resprings the device but ALSO clears the icon cache whilst you are at it.
    2) iWipeCache - Does what you would expect an app called that to do...
    3) Springtomize2 - A paid tweak which also clears the cache when you respring from inside the app or press the "Reload Settings" button.

    Reload settings via springtomize brings the blank apps back on to the springboard
