Ever since I jailbroke my iPhone 4S using Absinthe, it has been behaving a little weird, sometimes displaying white icons or even transparent icons for certain applications. It seems that this issue only affects Apple’s stock applications such as the Phone app, Calendar, etc.

I can’t really pinpoint the issue. Is it because of Absinthe? Or is it because of a package I have installed from Cydia? While I’m not really sure what causes this problem, I have found a simple trick to fix the blank or missing icon dilemma…

To fix this problem, simply download iWipe Cache from Cydia in the BigBoss repository, and run the app. According to the app description, iWipe Cache allows you to:

Clear your SpringBoard Cache to ensure all images from any theme will work with WinterBoard. Due to Winterboard being very out of date, It does not clear springboard cache. This app will clear your cache, allowing new masks and overlays to be applied to Icons.

If you do not want to download this program, you may:
Make a simple respring;
Disable libhide as a dependency of Mobile Substrate and then turn it back on:
More from SBSettings click-> Mobile Substrate addons;
Activate the “Fix user dir permissions” from SBSettings click on More-> System
Options.
