    I always hear about this app called Respring, what is it though? I've heard it is useful.

    Basically refreshes the springboard.

    Well, that's only my assumption. It may do some other sh*t I don't know of as well.

    If you uploaded an app, or any file via SSH or USB, it basically restarts the springboard so those changes take effect.
