How to fix some mysterious problems.

Does the pinwheel look like it's on top of the Apple Boot logo ? I had the same probleme on a 3GS I jailbroke with JBM ...

Some accessibility function might be turned on. Try turning them off.

I have the same glitch as op. I did a fresh update (without a restore of any kind) and ran the JBM 3.0 without a hitch.. but after every reboot, respring, etc. a glitchy pinwheel hangs around until I unlock and switch to a new page.

I took screen shots of it but it does not show on the iPhone's built in ss taker. I've instead attached 2 direct pictures of the screen.

I just installed activator on my employees 3GS and saw this! It was on lockscreen and the home screen....I touched it and it went away. Maybe try uninstalling activator if you have it and see if it goes away, or touch it and see if it does away :p
