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.
