We have covered the solution to fix White Cydia icon after jailbreaking issue earlier, but I encountered a different transparent/invisible app icons issue after jailbreaking my friends Apple iPhone 4 using redsn0w. After trying various options I finally figured out the solution as shown below.
- Use Cydia app ‘iRetiner GUI‘ (BigBoss repo), Navigate to “options” tab and use "fix white icons" button.
- Use ”SBSettings” -> “System Options” -> “Fix User Dir Permissions” -> “Fix Me” button.
- Use iWipeCache cydia app (modmyi repo) to clear your SpringBoard Cache ensuring images from themes work with WinterBoard.
- And finally the solution that worked for me was to install the missing Winterboard package from Saurik's repo.
