Did you delete the Cydia icon or just move it? If you deleted you should be able to restore it from ifiles trash.

Yeah I just checked the trash folder in iFile but I could not find the original icon image. Not sure where it went...?

Hmm well I'm not sure what else I can suggest. Maybe someone else on here knows more about this than I do. I hope you can fix your problem though. Sorry I was not much of a help.

No problem Cody, on the contrary thanks for taking the time to answer my man! I think I am gonna try to re-size the icon image to its proper size maybe that will fix it. Thanks!

Well I found out that it may be trying to load the old image from cache so you may have the image right... Try these guys ideas
