Jailbreak Only: iWipe Cache - Fix Those White Or Missing Icons

If you've recently jailbroken your iOS device under iOS 5.0.1, there's a chance jailbreak icons have been turning white or even disappearing. This happened to me a couple of days back - the Cydia icon transformed into a ghostly white, and nothing I did could coax its color back. Fortunately, if this has happened to you - or if other icons have been behaving in an odd manner - there is a free solution available in the Cydia Store.

The news comes following a previous update, in which @pod2g announced that he had been able to untether the iPhone 4 running iOS 5.0.1, also.
