How to fix app icons disappearing issue with TaiG iOS 8.3 Jailbreak

Does the app icons in Cydia disappear after jailbreaking iOS 8.3 using TaiG 2.1.2 jailbreak tool ? In case you are facing this issue that's because you need to install UIKit Tools 1.1.10 update to avoid hitting the app icons disappearing issue.

As saurik has explained in a long reddit thread, even though TaiG had used a workaround to fix the icons disappearing issue in TaiG 2.1.2, there were still some cases where users could hit the issue.
what TaiG did is to “wrap” my uicache with their own tool that used a risky feature of Substrate that I don’t expose as ABI (and believe I designed the TUI for poorly, by the way) to inject code into installd that seems to replicate a ton of the application scanning logic “just so” in order to make it work… but that only was possible if SpringBoard scanned the icons because of uicache. If there was any other reason SpringBoard scanned the icons (maybe due to someone deleting the icon cache) then SpringBoard would lose icons.
After releasing a beta version to test the fix, saurik has just released UIKit Tools 1.1.0, which now supports iOS 8.3, and also fixes the issue with the TaiG jailbreak where sometimes all the app icons would disappear.

So if you’re facing the app icons disappearing issue, or want to avoid hitting it in the future, then install the UIKit Tools update from Cydia immediately. When you launch Cydia or refresh it, you should get an “Essential upgrade” popup. Tap on Complete Upgrade to install the update.
