How To Fix White Icons After Jailbreaking

We all love jailbreaking here at the iOS Jedi Blog. But with jailbreaking, sometimes a few issues are caused. One of them is the white icon issue. Any random icon from your SpringBoard (home screen) suddenly turns white, without you having changed anything. Don’t worry! This is a pretty common issue faced by most jailbreakers of iOS 5.Thankfully, we have a fix for you!Requirements:-

1.A wee bit of technical skill
2.MobileTerminal installed
3. A minute of your time.
Step 1:- Open MobileTerminal
Step 2:- Type “uicache” without the quotes and hit return
Step 3:- Exit MobileTerminal and see if the app still has a white icon.
Step 4:- If the app still has a white icon, enter “uicache” again followed by “killall SpringBoard”.
You can see a video tutorial below:
All your white icons should be fixed by now!
There are various other ways to fix white icons also namely:
  • Re-installing something from Cydia
  • Using iWipeCache
  • Respring
  • Reboot
The above mentioned are the most common ones but do not work every time so using MobileTerminal to get rid of them is a much better and more efficient way.
