    Default Jailbreak / upgrade problem
    Okay,
    I jailbroke my phone using cydia from bigboss while I was running 2.1. Everything was working fine. I recently decided to upgrade to 2.2 software, everything went fine except for the fact that I had a lot of programs hidden using the "categories" app. One of the apps I had hidden was cydia. Now when I re-jailbroke my phone, cydia won't appear on my springboard. Therefore leaving everything else hidden. I tried to restore my phone and start over, but got the same result. Can anyone help?

    Starting a new phone would loose all you pics, however, if you still have those images/contacts/music etc on your hard drive (I mean in folders and not from previous backups), you can then sync iTunes to get them back.
