    I don't want to hijack this topic, but is it safe to remove the Loader app after jailbreaking?

    It is a banner ad. How long has it been there? Did it just suddenly appear after installing an app or something?

    Sometimes I get that after using an app with an add, but it disappears after a few seconds.

    It's been there for a while. It appears when I return to the HomeScreen. I'm not sure, I think it started a few app installs ago.

    Yeah its definitely from an app install or theme [​IMG]. I dont do themes so I'm not sure. Does it ever display an ad or does it keep the test ad title there all the time?


    just wanted to add that I'm sure its annoying you casue I know it would annoy the piss out of me.

    It is annoying. I've changed themes multiple times, and that's always displayed. It always displays a "Testing iAD Title". I've TRYiD multiple times, it does nothing.

    I found the app that was responsible. It was the Spike Dislike Lite app. As soon as I uninstalled it, the banner went away.

    That f'n sucks. I know its a pain in the ass.. but.. yeah... backup and restore is what I would do. I'd also list what I installed from cydia and after the restore reinstall it all one app at a time to find out what actually put the banner there in the first place.

    EDIT: Nevermind.
