That's it. After a successful JB with GP, when I receive a new email, I hear the sound, but there's no icon in status bar to notify it. TIA.

1 of two things is happening:

  1. you dont have something installed to display status bar notifications (i.e. notifier, notifier+)

  2. If you do have one it hasnt been updated for ios 4.2.1 yet. Be patient the updates will be rolling out soon.

In fact, I didn't have installed none of those programs, but when I read your answer, I've installed Notifier+ and I've got some icons reappeared -it's really a workaround, not a solution, but it seems to work fine with mail, SMS icons.

By the way, I say "some icons" because I realized the issue isn't only concerning mail icon, but also some others, like mute-sound icon, for instance...

Thanks anyway. If someone can give me a bit more of help about disappeared (not-appearing) icons in status bar (mail, sound...), it'd be appreciated.

I don't think mail adds icons to your status bar. This is notifier+ feature. Mail only adds the round badge with number on the mail icon.

OK, let's say you're right -even if I never installed Notifier before-, but what about, for exemple, mute icon? It has disappeared as well... :S

There is no mute icon without addons like notifier+. Only icon is "portrait lock".

I accidentally didn't see this and created a 2nd post about the same thing, install lock info and the icon will show up, ive just found that out, I now have all my little icons showing :D

Hope this helps
