    Default iTunes won't restore my apps from backup.
    I recently jailbroke my 3GS.

    I transferred all apps to itunes, then did a backup, then updated to 5.1.1. Everything was automatically restored including apps, but JB failed. So I erased all data and files through phone menu and JB'd again and it was a success.

    Then I tried restoring from backup in iTunes, I think just about everything was restored except apps. My SMS history was there, as is contact list, icon layout, etc.

    Why weren't the apps restored? I tried restoring a few times but the apps just wouldn't be restored. Is it a bug?

    you dont jailbreak then backup, you backup first before jailbreak

    Restore again -> restore backup from itunes -> jailbreak

    I dont know why the jailbreak failed but try using the latest redsn0w 0.9.12b1 after restoring from itunes backup
