I recently went through the process of restoring my iPhone and updating from 5.01 to 5.1.1 both Jailbroken. In preparation, I used SSH to backup an app that lets me store data such as pictures, video and other information that has a password. I copied the file from /private/var/mobile/Applications/ to my computer in order to move it back when the process was complete and keeping all my data from the app in tact. Now after doing all this i move the file back into the /private/var/mobile/Applications/ folder and rebooted my phone and have no idea how to get it operational. Any help on what to do? If you need more details just ask. Thanks.

Did you reinstall it from the app store? Sometimes it isn't as simple as copying and pasting an app back into the device.

The pics/vids that you backed up, which folder did they come from before you restored your device.

It could be. I guess I'm just not quite understanding what is working and what is not as of now.

And you said you can see the pictures and videos on your computer but its not restoring in the App, is that what I'm understanding?

The app is called KyCalc and as of now i got it back to working order. In iFile I copy/pasted all the files inside of /private/var/mobile/Applications/randomletters of the one I had backed up into the new downloaded except for the actual .app file. I also changed the Ownership to mobile instead of root although I am not sure if that entirely matters.
