I just updated iblank to the newest version in cydia. After completing the update I am now missing the program icon itself and am therefore not able to create any new blank icons.
Tried deinstalling and reinstalling, no luck though - cydia says the program is installed, but the program icon doesn't show.
I checked my SBsettings, respectively the hidden icons sections, but supposedly the icon is displayed...
Any ideas on how i can get iblank back?
Thanks in advance

search for it using spotlight.
spotlight is the page to the left of your first screen of apps.
no signature links or spam.... only warning

Same issue. Tried to install and uninstall several times. Went to sbsettings to check if icon was hidden. It just shows it on the list as on. Also tried to add it to the sbsettings dock and it will not come up. Next im gonna try to open it with ifile.

Same problem here. I emailed Dennis (the author) and poetic_folly (app contact) about it. They probably already know, but wanted to make sure.

Dennis emailed me back. He said it appears to be a repo issue, and suggested reinstalling it tomorrow. He said it installs OK, but the permissions don't get set correctly.
If I knew what to set the perms on, I would do it myself.
I think it is cool that Dennis replied so quickly.

Of course same issue here. Lucky I had a copy of older version so i ssh'ed it back and now working. Will try again tomorrow thanks gvrider for info.

I had the same concern. Thanks for the information!

I was able to get the icon to show up, and create blank icons. Based on what Dennis said about permission problems, I did an SSH in and ran a find command for iBlank. I found it in "/private/var/stash/Applications.uyepNP/iBlank.app". I changed directory to /private/var/stash/Applications.uyepNP/iBlank.app did a "chmod 755 *" (without the "), then drilled into the Files directory, which is the only directory under iBlank.app, and did a "chmod 755 *" there as well. Rebooted the phone and it is now working. One thing I have noticed is that you do still need BlankNull, despite this version of iBlank supposedly not requiring it. Pressing a blank icon does funky stuff. That may be something that will be fixed soon. Maybe even after reinstalling tomorrow.

ok so i have winscp open but how would i execute it?

The permissions are based on read/write/execute, for owner, group, and public. I don't want to go into detail on the command, on this board, because it could take up a full page. If you would like to know more about the chmod command, read this. chmod
If you are unfamiliar with logging into the O/S and making changes, you may want to pass on this. I am sure it will either work tomorrow, or a fix will be released soon, if there is a bug.

If you are unfamiliar with making changes within the O/S of your iPhone/iPod Touch, please be very careful, or don't try it. It is possible to cause harm to the functionality of your device, if you do not do things correctly.
Just a friendly warning in advance.
