    Default Cannot connect to AppStore from any link
    Every single link I use to get to an app in the AppStore I get the error in safari saying cannot connect because too many redirects. This happens from any linkto the AppStore, wether it is an in app link or one found anywhere on the net. I can use any other links outside the AppStore and I have no problems downloading apps right in the AppStore. I have a 2g jailbroken 3.1.2 iPod touch, restoring the iPod does not resolve this issue. Please help!

    It has never worked for me on the phone either. The redirects on your computer launch iTunes. It would be nice if the redirects on the phone activated iTunes or the Appstore within the phone.

    Found the solution folks, when the AppStore or YouTube apps are hidden the links to those respected apps go to the website instead of the apps themselves. Once the apps are unhidden the links work correctly again. Another instance like this is when the mail app is hidden you cannot make bookmarks in safari. Hope this helps someone else.

    That makes sense; it restricts usage of the app as well as hiding it.
