Thread: Blank Screen No Icons
09-28-2007, 11:53 AM #1Blank Screen No Icons
So I was in Mobile Finder just navigating around and I then clicked the home button and when I got there, I was presented with a blank screen with nothing there except my background. I did a restart and still the same thing. Where did everything go? Anyone experience this and is there a way to fix it other than reformatting?

this happens to me sometimes. But normally a restart fixes it. Have you tried resetting? Do you have dock installed so you can open rsbt with the sunburst and tinker around to see if that does anything?

Unfortunately I don't have Dock installed to do that. I actually thought about that being useful in this case. I have restarted a couple of times and nothing.
What do you mean by resetting?

I originally installed ibrickr, just to install installer.app
From there, I installed everything via installer.app

i have this problem sometimes. i unlock and it has a black screen. i either use dock to open what i want but in the end, just turn it on and off and it solves this. hopefully someone knows a fix to this.

Just an update. I got home and plugged into computer and iTunes still pics it up, so that's good. I opened iBrickr to see what would happen and it essentially acted like it ran the jailbreak again to set it up. I then installed Summerboard from iBrickr (since I thought maybe it was a problem with my theme installed) and Summerboard now apears on my screen all by itself but it doesn't open when I click it!
I then installed Dock, and I can bring up the dock, but the only apps it shows are Camera, Photos, SMBPrefs and Screenshot! It's like it all of a sudden lost all of my apps!
It's almost like it is bricked, but I didn't install the update!!!!
Any suggestions before I run a restore?

It happens to me sometimes with summerboard, but its weird that a reset doesn't fix it, at this point I think your only option is a restore. It sucks if you have hundreds of mods like me.

listen guise, just get a default M6AP.plist something, and you'll be back to normal.

If you're on 1.1.1, then download the attached M68P.plist
If you're on 1.0.2, then download the attached DisplayOrder.plist
Install to /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/
I'm getting tired of incorrect, or inaccurate info on here.

01-19-2008, 02:38 PM #17this worked for me.
just for all googlers, the above mentioned method worked great for me (1.1.1) - due to the lacking icons, i was unable to connect to my wireless, so i had to use the USB connection - and this worked through iphonebrowser.
i simply overwrote the M68AP.plist with the one posted above, and back they were, my icons - nicely and complete.

-Someone please make this a Sticky-
seems like alot of people experience this judging from how many views this thread has (1,513 as of writing this)
As for me when i SSH'd into my iphone i somehow had a new M68P.plist file and a backup of my original so all i had to do was rename the back up and all was good again (i.e-remove the .bak from M68P.plist.bak)
But thanks Dictionary, would have taken me alot longer to find it without ya *presses thanks button*
