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 iPhone Dev-Team has recently released a new version of its redsn0w jailbreak tool (0.9.10b5), which fixes iBooks under iOS 5.0.1. Furthermore, the Corona jailbreak package - which can also provide iOS 5.0.1 users with an untethered solution - will soon receive an update that also fixes iBooks.
The jailbreak exploit that powers the Chronic Dev Team's Corona package has reportedly been patched in the latest beta version of iOS 5.1. Because of this, potential jailbreakers are advised to update to iOS 5.0.1 before it's too late, and avoid iOS 5.1 at all costs once it finally goes live.

The famous iOS hacker @pod2g has recently updated his blog a number of times, noting that he has managed to apply an untethered jailbreak solution to his iPhone 3GS, original iPad and iPod touch (fourth generation), all of which are running iOS 5.0.1.

If you’ve already upgraded your iDevice to iOS 5.0.1 and now wish to jailbreak, we’ve got a solution, which uses redsn0w 0.9.9b8. But, according to the folks at JailBreak Nation, if you’re still waiting for an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0, you may wish to stay away from iOS 5.0.1 all together, at least for now.
Two weeks after word spread that iOS 5 included a dangerous security bug for those using a Smart Cover with an iPad 2, comes some good news. Apple’s recently released iOS 5.0.1 fix eliminates the problem, according to Cult Of Mac.
