    hey guys had a question about a problem I noticed the other day after installing the 5.0.1 untether. A couple times now I've noticed after exiting Cydia that for some reason on the 2nd page of icons on my phone, theres 4 white icons that show up that are labeled "AdSheet, Field Test, iOS diagnostics, and Setup". It has been happening occasionally after exiting Cydia and they go away after I respring. Anyone know what these are or why theyre showing up on my phone? When they show up it throws my other icons all over the place and I have to go back and re-organize them, which is starting to get a little annoying. Any help would be appreciated, I attached a screen shot to show what I mean about the icons.

    Same thing happens to me... I'm pretty sure it's an issue with gridlock, or installous... (not that I know what installous is...) also I've reinstalled gridlock many times and that's not helping

    You could use Winterboard or another app to just hide them.

    I had a similar issue with a tethered redsn0w JB. I did a "just boot" to fix it. For you I suggest re-jail breaking with the latest redsn0w but remember to deselect install cydia.

    Also one of the benefits of that happening is you can run a field test app & get cellular data. Does anyone know how to get access to field test info that without having to have the white icon issue?

    I tried to hide them with SBSettings, and it doesn't work.

    yea I tried to do that, but the last time it happened they still showed up. I'll have to give re-jailbreaking a shot. thanks for the help guys

    It's most likely due to you exiting Cydia without a package fully installing.

    Depending on your firmware, you can access the field test mode by dialing *3001#12345#* and then tapping Call.

    (And for the OP, a respring is all you need to do instead of constantly trying to reorganize your apps.)

    This happened to me before when I had a tethered jailbreak for iOS5 on my iPhone 4. A respring (SBsettings, Winterboard) would fix it.
