    okay so ive tried many times to install winterboard, yes on 2.0, 2.0.1, and 2.0.2

    but IT NEVER SHOWS UP!

    seriously, ive tried installing from cydia and sshing the app in, ive tried permissions 775 755 and 777 but the app just doesnt show up on my springboard.

    why is it doing this and what will fix it?

    Try installing an app from the App Store. I had a problem with apps not showing up & after installing an App Store game, they all appeared.

    EDIT: Follow advice from second post.

    It magically shows up after I installed a free app!

    Well, my friend had the same problem, I told him to do the next things that worked for him:

    1. Start 'Cydia'
    2. Goto 'Search' and search for: Winterboard (make sur there is no 's' after 'Winterboard', my friend made that mistake)
    Then go to the 'w' in the results list, and find 'WinterBoard' (the icon, is a lightblue squared smiley that is like split in two parts).
    3. At the right top corner click 'Modify', and then click 'Reinstall'.
    Wait until it reinstalled and check it again.
    The App icon is lightblue with a snowflake on it.

    (it's possible that all other previously downloaded modifies working on WinterBoard with Cydia won't work or even show up in WinterBoard, try to reinstall them the same way in Cydia.)

    Hope it works for you.
