    Every time I try to delete a blank app my springboard crashes, I know I can delete them through SSH, but it's just easier to delete them through the ipod. Is there any way to fix this?
    (the last thing I downloaded from cydia was the winterboard update, and my springboard has been crashing more, don't know if you needed to know that, just extra info)

    When I need to remove blank apps, I delete them in Safe Mode. Have you tried that yet?

    yea, they delete in safe mode, they used to delete in regular mode, but for some reason they don't anymore, also, how to I go into safe mode whenever I want to (I.E. without having to wait for the springboard to crash)

    You have to crash the springboard. Which can be done by trying to delete an iBlank.

    Just go into safe mode from SBSettings. Touch Power, then a list of things pops up. Just select Safe Mode.

    Ok i was installing a theme (iNav i think) and I added a bunch of webclips in the webclips folder in ssh (forgot location) and it created a bunch of blank apps. If thats what they are you could ssh into your webclips folder and delete them that way.
