    Can you take a picture and show us here? Also what type of iPhone do you have and on what iOS version?

    A possible full restore will fix this.

    I've seen this happen.
    Do a hard reset. Hold the home and power button at the same time. Ignore the slide to power off. When you see the Apple symbol release both buttons. Wait one minute and poof like Apple magic all should be back to normal

    Only restoring will break your jailbreak. What they are telling you to do is a hard reset by holding your home and power button until it shuts off and then you see the Apple logo. Then you can let go. Tell us if this fixes your issue.

    From the sounds of things you've installed something on your device e.g Shrink - This can make your icons smaller. Have you jailbroken from a previously jailbroken backup?

    When you jailbreak and backup, the actual backup will save a few of your jailbroken settings, check which apps you have installed Cydia.

    I was thinking this as well. I have a Cydia tweak called Bigify that, in the settings, you can change the size of your apps to very big or very tiny.

    Bigify is basically the free version of Shrink. I purchased Shrink when it first came out, sort of wish I'd have waited a little longer.

    Ohh! Well, sadly I'm sticking with all free apps and tweaks. I may ask for a giftcard for my birthday and use that to go crazy in Cydia!

    Anyways, back on topic. You have to be very careful when using a backup of Cydia apps! :)

    But this doesn't seem like a big issue. It may just be a setting that your apps are tiny.

    Bigify is with the source BigBoss. It allows you to make your icons bigger and smaller and flipped upside down and such.
