Wenn after doing a restart of springboard it is all ok, but after a normal reboot the lockscreen and the icons are messed up on ipad. Anyone else can see this?

i'm having the same problem. My jailbreak sequence. 1. JB with GP on my IPad running tethered JB version 4.2.1 2. Messed up screen 3. restore using itunes to 4.2.1 4. JB again with GP. updated cydia. install all apps back. works fine. 5. tried to reboot = Messed up screen again. it feels like they read Ipad as a Iphone with similar iphone interface. 6. LOST! 7.

I think the problem for me was a cydia tweak called Photomail. I have folder enhancer installed and it seems to be ok at the moment. But I'm still testing it out to see what might be causing the problem. I uninstalled Photomail and no longer get the problem. I went through all my cydia apps and tweaks and disabled all of them and slowly enabled them one at a time and did a respring and then 2 reboots after each and to me it seems like the problem is that Photomail tweak i had.

That's probably from a software you installed with Cydia. Uninstall Winterboard and all these programs one by one to find out what is causing this.

I have the same problem with my iPad and a bit more. If I run any app before doing the respring to clean up the icons etc it crashes the iPad. Plus about 30 games/apps are getting dumped out of my folders on to the home screen. If I clean them up and put back in folders its fine until next reboot and it dumps them back out again. What a pain :(

Yes i have that but on iP4 and iPad iP4 is fine. Welll after Respring Pad is fine to so no big problem in my opinion, you don't reboot everyday

First, for people saying the have the same issue, make that a comment and not an answer.

Now, did any of you people restore a backup that came from a device that is not a ipad and that has been jailbroken? Just checking to make sure.

I have come to the conclusion that it looks a folderenhancer issue. I got this issue, and as soon as i installed folderenhancer mine got screwed up. Doesnt do it on my iphone4 though. Restored with clean 4.2.1, installed everything, did not restore from backup, installed all my stuff from cydia less folderenhancer. All ok, restart, respring etc. Then installed folderenhancer, screen goes fruit loop.

my guess is activator is a messing agent.

Same here, I resolved it: sbsettings-->more--->mobile substrate-->Photomail off and.... voila!!!!!

FYI for future users & googlers... kalety's tip is good (SBSettings app > Mobile Substrate Addons) but you should probably also toggle it back on then use Cydia to fully remove/uninstall the troublemaker app.
