Do you have the tweak "FastLoading" installed?

If you have mobileterminal installed, open it and type "uicache" (without quotes) and hit enter. If you don't have mobileterminal installed, add the repo to cydia and get NewTerm, which I know works on 8.4 (I use it).

I asked about FastLoading because it disables cydia's automatic uicache rebuild upon installing a package.

I installed NewTerm but it does NOT appear in my iPhone ahah, so...?

Definitely a uicache issue. Try turning the phone off/on. Failing that, making an iTunes backup and then restoring that backup would probably do the trick.

Thank you

I resolved this bug just removing openSsh and reinstalling uikit

After I rebooted, upgraded, rebooted, and reinstalled, I finally found the icon on one of my home pages. It is labeled "Impactor" and is mostly white, featuring a grayscale image of a side view of the front an impact drill.
