    sup guys. After making my own theme by sshing into my iPod then mashing themes, I noticed that I couldn't delete apps. I had also used springback to restore to a previous layout. I hold an icon until it wiggles but when I click the x it won't delete. The same thing happens for cydia apps aswell. I find it odd that cydelete if affected too by whatever I did. (unless it uses something similar to apples deletion thing.) anyways please help. I know restoring is an option but I really would not like to do that. Thanks!

    Maybe there's something in your self made themes that messed it up? If you deselect your themes from Winterboard (if that's what you use), does your app-deletion work correctly?

    Darn it. Can you:
    • Deselect your themes. Respring springboard.
    • SSH into your iDevice, remove all of your self-made theme folders and files (back them up somewhere on your computer), quit the SSH session.
    • Remove all traces of Springback.
    • Reboot iDevice.
    • Go to Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset Home Screen Layout (or to be safe you can Reset All Settings).
    • SSH back into your iDevice, copy and paste in your self-made theme folders and files, quit the SSH session.
    • Apply the themes and manually configure your springboard layout.
    • Install Springback and back up springboard layout.
