    Not sure if this is in the right section
    Nor what the exact problem is
    Recently every once in a while, say, one in 3 times i turn on my ipod, when i load an app, my status bar disappears.
    It is replaced by what would be behind it should it not be there (I.E. if i had a rainbow background you would, when in safari, see the top couple milimeters of the rainbow, where the status bar should be)
    as far as i can recall this happened around when i installed either fantastic contraption on Unlimited SMS

    I dont think they are the problem but don't want to delete them
    Any ideas?

    I suggest Restoring. That should fix the problem.

    I doubt it's from those apps. It probably has something to do with a theme (if you have one installed).

    Yeah.

    I know. It's defiantly easier said than done.

    If you have a theme installed, try taking it off, or use a different one and see what happens.
    That might do something.

    I look at Restoring as a last resort, I'm just not sure what to tell you.
    That usually solves every problem.

    Hmmm, after reading your first post i went into winterboard and started unchecking everything
    Then rechecked all I had before except "Solid Status Bar" and its seeming to work
    We'll see, thanks <3 saved me a load of work

    whenever you have a theme that themes your status bar that happens. its a 3.0 glitch that i found the first day 3.0 was jailbroken. makes me unhappy

    For future notice, don't automatically suggest a restore when a status bar disappears. Try maybe a... reset all settings, resync with iTunes, disabling of Mobile Substrate Extensions, WinterBoard themes, etc.

    See Restoring and You.
