Weird looking app icons
For the last couple of days, some of my icons look.. well.. odd. And even in the app store, they look a bit bizarre too... Some are square with a white box at the top, and some are just square where they should be rounded edges.
None are in categories, as I know that makes apps go square (sometimes).
I've checked on another iphone we have, and in the appstore everything looks as per norm and even the same ones i've d/l on my phone (that look weird) look normal on the other phone...

Could it be the theme you have installed?

Nope.. Have had the theme for a while.. and most of my other icons are fine.
It's weird that most in the app store shop look like that too before even installing...

Try installing iWipe from Cydia. You might have to clear your icon cache.

But I'll try anything once, I'm game :P
Edit: Ergh.. I hope you meant iwipe cache... not just the iwipe...
And.. nope... iwipe cache didn't work.. still stupid looking. *sigh*
Um.... and after running iwipe cache... another app has suddenly gone square...

Seems to me that it would have to be icon auto create overlays in the ui images still if iWipe Cache didn't work. odd for sure.

I've had the same theme for ages.... changed nothing.. haven't even changed any other tweaky things in cydia for at least.. a few days.. before this weird icon issue. Just woke up.. looked.. hmm.. ICKY...
So.. I'm lost... If I have to do the whole restore thing again.. Ima gonna be cranky

Disable all themes in WinterBoard and see if it is still there.
Then run iWipe cache again
