    Ok guys.. Ive unlocked full features on my 3G/2G MC iPod Touch such as multitasking, background, voice control and all of the other things. It all runs smoothly on my iPod but everytime I install a new app, Winterboard suddenly appears when I told it not to. And also regarding to Winterboard, the following apps with no icons appear: AdSheet, DemoApp, iPodOut, TrustMe and WebSheet. they all disappear if I respring or reboot or they just go away on their own. Before you guys tell me to use Activator and SBSettings, I have to tell you that I do not use them because they use up my RAM and slow down my iDevice so plz I need a solution without these apps cuz the main reason I jailbroken my device was to get regular full features of iOS4. Heres a pic of my 3rd page homescreen with the extra icons. (The only icons that are supposed to stay are: PocketGuitar and the Games folder.

    I had to restore my phone because of these stupid icons. I got them somehow after turning on Nike+. After that, they never liked to get off my screen. I tried using Poof to make them disappear, and that never did anything. The only answer I have is to restore.

    If you respring they will go away, I think its something to do with libhide not working properly.

    Only happened to me once, and a respring cleared it. If they bother you that much, folder them and put them in an empty spot on your Springboard. :/

    They are added features of the OS which activate not through an icon, but through other means. For example: the iPodOut app will activate automatically if you connect your iPod's bluetooth to a compatible speaker system (currently only found in BMW cars). Demoapp is what plays when an iPod is undisturbed at an apple store (the screen saver that you'll only see in the Apple store)

    Indeed, i think Iconsupport goes wild when a new icon is added and causes libhide to silently crash, making those weird icons appear.

    Ah i didn't know that, thanks for sharing that.. Although now this makes me want to use DemoApp...
