Absinthe 2.0 iPad Jailbreak – Possible Quick Fix for White Icons Issue

Share This:


I’ve done the new Absinthe 2.0 jailbreak on an iPad 3 this morning. I hit upon a few issues during the jailbreak itself and once it had completed.

My earlier post on the iPad 3 jailbreak with Absinthe 2.0  gives details on how I got past the jailbreak itself failing the first couple times I tried it. One of the first issues I saw once the jailbreak was done was that three of my apps had blank, white icons – the Music, iTunes and Contacts apps. Happily, the fix for this turned out to be a very easy one.

Just opening up Cydia and letting it do the first update / refresh of its own data that it prompted for was enough to get the icons for all three apps back to normal. I know many users had this white icons issue with the original version of Absinthe and I don’t know whether just opening Cydia and letting it update will work for everyone – but it worked for me. Hope it does for any of you who see this issue as well.

  1. Just get IWipeCache. It basically resprings your device and has worked for me every single time. It should be available on Cydia…
