    in cydia, go to repositories, add the steffwiz source, and then download blank icons (they come in 5, 10, 15, etc), then you just place these where you want the screen to remain blank.

    once you added the steffiz source, go to Sections scroll down to Blanks there you will see all of them...

    they'll be icons on your springboard. It'll look like nothings there, but when you try to 'wiggle the icons', you'll find them.

    I wonder if it will hang the blank icon in the abyss of disappearing app hell if you remove the 5 icon dock with one still in the dock............ Like it would be stuck in the resources and not allow you to uninstall the blanks package or something. Hmmmmm......

    Wouldn't it just be deposited back onto the springboard?
