How to fix some mysterious problems.

I'm on 5.0.1 iPod Touch 4g, jailbroken with Redsn0w 0.9.9b8. (I know to boot tethered, I did already).

All my Cydia app icons are white! The only things I have installed are Semitether, Mobilesubstrate, SBsettings (so thus activator), and MXtube. Cydia is the only jailbroken app to retain it's icon, help!

Open cydia, click manage, click settings in the top left, select developer. After that click search, look for UIKitTools, reinstall it.

Have tried all other fixes but nothing worked but this does To fix my blank, white icons, I used sbsettings to go into 'SafeMode.' When I restarted out of SafeMode, my Cydia/Jailbreak apps all had their correct icons. Hope this helps. iPhone 4 5.0.1

It's very, very simple. That happened to me (jailbroke my iPod Touch 4G with iOS.5.0.1, and used redsnow tethered), so I reinstalled the UlKitTools and it didn't work. So I got SBSettings and I just simply resprang and it worked!
