What causes the quarter screen issue?

Well, says that this issue comes after installing Activator on iOS 5. BigBoss has warned from upgrading to iOS 5 GM and Activator was one of the reasons not to do that. Since Activator is an important tweak, most of iOS users who made the jailbreak has installed it.

Step 1: Open SBSettings
