    Default White apps showing up
    After I install an app either from the AppStore or Cydia these white icons appear (picture posted). I have uninstalled all jb apps and it still shows up after an AppStore app install. I have a 3GS ios4 jb. This never happened on 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 jbs.

    It also places an icon for sbsettings on the springboard and the stocks and iTunes app are hidden with sbsettings.

    I have never seen SBSettings show up as an application on the iPhone desktop, it shouldn't. I have occassionally seen applications that show up with blank or all white icons. Launch SMSettings and select Respring. It should fix your problem.

    i had this problem! you used APTbackup to restore your cydia apps right? thats the problem. it isn't supported on iOS 4 and it causes the white/ blank icons. you need to restore again and not use APTbackup to restore apps!

    This is False, I used aptbackup and appbackup, mine works fine

    Try a hard reset, then safe mode from sbsettings then hard reset

    If I've helped please thank me on site if not comment some questions

    I use AptBackup, AppBackup, and PkgBackup on my iPhone 4.1 3GS. I've never had a problem with any of them. As far as the white icons and SBSettings icon, I don't think it's a big deal... The white icons are probably iOS Diagnostics, AdSheet, iPod Out, and other apps that don't have icons. I've had this happen before, and a simple respring made them disappear from my SpringBoard. I could be completely wrong about this, but so far it hasn't created further complications.

    Dan, I have a 3GS on 4.1 and used limera1n. Easy to do and works beautifully. I downloaded limera1n for Windows onto my laptop, connected and installed limera1n onto my iPhone, which then allowed me to install Cydia. I've done it on several iPhones and an iPad. Now that I'm familiar with the process, it takes about 10 minutes. I've never done this with an iPhone 4... I'd research a little more before deciding which program is best for you.
