Any help appreciated.
I have an iphone 4s that was jailbroken with eva5ion 6.01. Everything was working fine until last week when some of my apps decided not to work anymore. Probably as a result of some modding in iFile.
Long story short, no matter what I do I cant get the apps to work normally anymore and want to start afresh.
I (probably foolishly) got annoyed and upgraded to 6.1.3, thinking that a firmware update would overwrite any corrupt information in the file registry. Unfortunately it hasnt and I am still experiencing issues. I did restore my personal info using a backup, not sure if that caused anything.

Restoring from backup usually doesn't go off without a hitch--and in this case, I'm guessing the backup brought back whatever nastiness was plaguing you in the past. Try restoring the phone from DFU mode, and setting it up as a new phone (you can copy back all your apps/music/movies et cetera).
