    Default iTunes won't sync apps from appstore?
    I got a iphone 3g jailbreak 2.0, and I got some cracked apps and also some apps i brought off the apple appstore, but when I sync my iphone with itunes I don't see any of thoses apps in my "Sync applications" and was wondering why? Also I can always delete them and get them back for free from the appstore (paid once for it) but if I ever chose to restore my iphone will i still be able to get them?

    yes i have restored many a time. all music videos and apps downloaded are saved to your account so if you ever download them again it will know that you have paid before.


    It may not sync you app BECAUSE you have "cracked apps" as you call them and apple have blocked syncing of those apps on 7.7.1 of iTunes
    Being an i can be a lot of pressure. you have to live right up to the small point.

    I've seen other people have this problem. You just need to redownload the apps again.

    Once you download them again you should be able to sync them like normal. You don't need to remove the cracks.

    If what yo can't sync is apple store apps that u downloaded through your phone. You need to reset the dialog boxes in iTunes so that it will ask u if u want to transfer those apps. To do that right click your iPhone in iTunes and there's an option there to reset the dialog boxes.

    Purchase applications are downloadable once paid. You can always delete the applications you have on your iPhone 3g, and install them again when you need it. There's no need to restore your iPhone 3g. Those paid or free applications are always available for download.

    You probbly just need to authorize your computer again. iTunes is wonky sometimes and will deauthorize my computer. Just click the Store tab and under that you will see "Authorize computer"

    Exclamation Solution!!!
    I have an iphone 3g 3.0, jailbroken. The apps i downloaded from the app store wouldnt work after i pressed sync. To solve this problem all i did was install In.stallous.app from cydia (source: http:// cydia.hackulo.us and SSH the downloaded .ipa files into Downloads folder /private/var/mobile/Library/Downloads. Then you open In.stallous and go to the downloads tab. Press your downloaded ipa file and install. Reboot your device afterwards. Your apps should work now!

    There is something always wrong with the iTunes syncing up. Itís like have a personal time period when things get worse with me. Not asking anything but I think the technologies has some rage against me. Does anyone ever felt like that?

    Here is another thing: I have lots of apps I transferred to my 3.0 iphone 3g, using itunes.
    But now I find that "Sync apps" is deselected, and if I select it, I only get maybe a dozen apps listed instead of 30+ I already have on the iphone.
    I worry that the rest will get deleted when I sync

    Default App Syncing
    I had the same problem trying to sync an app I recently downloaded. Couldn't figure out why it wouldn't sync after I downloaded it to itunes. Problem was that the app only worked with a newer version iphone OS (I was on 3.1 and the app required 3.1.2 or later) as stated in the app description in itunes. Make sure you check this as a lot of us Jailbreakers are not upgrading our OS when new ones come out. Then newer apps being posted in the itunes store only work on a newer iphone OS.
