How to fix some mysterious problems.

I installed GP sucessfully, but no Loader icon on my springboard. I already rejailbroke many times, but the issue persists. I followed the instructions to install Cydia thru redsn0w. I followed all steps, but redsn0w cannot install Cydia icon on my Iphone 4. Any suggestions?

Step 1: Download either iFunBox or iPhoneBrowser, and plug in your iPhone. This will allow you to navigate your phone’s directory structure if the jailbreak was indeed successful.

Step 2: Navigate to /var/mobile/Library/Caches directory, delete ‘’ and reboot.

This appears to be a springboard caching problem that is resolved by a simple “clearing” of the cache, as done above.
