The springboard looks fine until it is turned long ways so the home button is on the side instead of the bottom for wide viewing, then the icons aren't where there supposed to be and the dock disappears , I have a number of tweaks installed. I've gone back through uninstalling any that relates to the spring board but the problem didn't fix.. I then went to my Cydia installed themes and 1by1 uninstalled them all, then went to WinterBoard and checked my installed themes. I've attached a screenshot of installed winterBoard themes and also a photo of the problem I'm having. Please any assistance or suggestions would be greatly appreciated thank you. Please

That looks more like you have a misbehaving Cydia tweak or an iPhone tweak (read: not compatible with the iPad) that is messing up the iPad. Usually, that kind of behavior is not from installing and running themes.

Think back to what tweaks you installed just before you noticed this behavior. Then, go back to Cydia and uninstall them and see if that fixes it. Then, if you had to remove more than one, you may have to put them back on, one at time to find the culprit.

If that doesn't help, please give a list of your installed Cydia tweaks. Maybe we can see one that might be causing a problem.

Good luck.

Yeah, definitely looks like you have an iPhone tweak which is not expecting the springboard to rotate like it does on the iPad. Its not likely to be a theme. List your tweaks and we'll see if we can identify it.

I'm not the OP, but I have the same problem (iPad 3; CDMA; 64Gb; 5.1.1; Jailbroken with Absinthe), and, it would be awesome if you could help me identify the tweak(s) that are (or aren't!) causing my problem:

Hello, I still need help please if possible (sorry for posting in multiple threads wasn't sure which Thread category I was meant to post to for my problem).
Here is my complete list of installed Cydia tweaks and next to them is the Repo I installed from. I can only use my iPad2 5.1.1 (Absinthe2.1) successfully in safe mode otherwise it does the above mentioned faulty springboard action whilst on its side. After going through typing the list there is a few I'm not sure about but don't want to uninstall without advice as I'm not sure which ones are required to run properly. Any help will be extremely appreciated. Thank you

Since almost all of your tweaks are stolen you won't be getting any help from us here thengoboy. You really MUST read our rules before you post again.


Reminder - Rule 15
Discussion of pirated or cracked applications and any methods associated with enabling their use, such as posting app or repository names, is forbidden on this forum. This also includes discussion of illegally obtaining media such as music, movies, games, books or other copyrighted content.
Piracy is illegal and the staff of iPadForums.net neither supports or condones it in any way. Jailbreaking and hacking is not an excuse to steal or pirate software!
Discussions, links, and sharing of any piracy related topics, apps, repositories, etc., will be deleted and the member will receive a warning which may lead to a ban.
Please review all our forum rules here

We don't provide assistance to anyone who does not pay for their apps or tweaks. That is NOT what jailbreaking is about.
