if they are hidden with poof, just restore your phone.
they will come back
if not poof or categories then just right click an app in itunes and show in finder
~/my music/itunes/mobile applications
then drag all those apps back into itunes, sync and enjoy

Im using my first post on you. Are you ******* kidding???? they dont have to do ****, you should be really thankful and not full of complaints ****. They can release when they want cause they dont get a cent for any of this, it is free to you so you should be patient or get the **** out. I wish there was a way for dev team to block you from jailbreak and unlock.
EDIT: Kidding second post
06-17-2009, 09:45 PM #384
thats the problem.
do not update, restore
you will have a partition unusable that still contains partial jailbreak stuff like carrier logos etc.
it says on here and the devs blog,
WAIT FOR US TO RELEASE PWNAGE/QUIKPWN
finally someone who has some common sense and respect for the people who deserve it and not these whining kids.
preach on brotha!

Couple of things:
I updated my wifes phone to 3.0 tonight. Can't seem to find out how to get it to show the percentage of the battery next to the battery meter. Wasn't that supposed to be a feature that was added to 3.0? Maybe I just missed something when looking at it. Let me know.
Second, in case you guys haven't figured it out, the girl in tattoojack's profile pic and the animated gif of that girl licking the phone is Olivia Munn from G4. She is one of the hottest women on TV. She is incredibly sexy, loves video games, and is funny as hell!!!
As for the 3.0 upgrade on my jailbroken iPhone, I will say that I am perfectly willing to wait until the upgrade from dev-team comes out. I will read everything I can on it and learn all about it first. The same way I did with the 2.2 upgrade when I was going to do that. It scared the hell out of me when I did it, but I did it anyway.
Anyway, just thought I would ask and put all that out there.

Second, **** you, I'm not "full of complaints", I had only one complaint, and that one has to do with the fact that they exaggerated their release time.
Third, I know they can release "when they want", but making promises without having the means to back them up is ********, they could have given a more vague date, maybe something along the lines of "within the week." Also, as far as the whole "they can release any time they want" point of your argument, which in itself is a terribly worded and punctuated combination of what it seems to be pre-teen anger and boredom, developers usually don't release "whenever they want", just take a look at Façade App, a theming app for Mac OS X Leopard that was to be released in October 2008. It still hasn't been released, and they gave a time of 8 months ago. Now they have taken down the website (previously facadeapp.com), and the project has been abandoned.
Fourth, seriously? You told me to "get the **** out"? You signed up this month, a month with only half of its days gone, so I can safely assume it was very recent. Congratulations on trying to side yourself with a forum that you literally just became apart of.
So my advice to you Nora47, is to seriously think about what you're going to say before you say it, and make sure you have the means to back it up before you do, because none of your argument had any logic behind it. All I got from your previous statements, is that you are angry, angry in an indirectable way because you are obviously incapable of reason.
TattooJack, I updated the second the firmware was released, hours ago, it was already done before these warnings of "do not restore" were given. Also, the word "brotha", is horrible description of Nora47, as he is not related to you, and it is inherently a misspelling of the word "brother."

yea it does stay unlocked, mines did!

are we getting turn by turn??

I am not able to test this as well, but I can also say that I am almost 100% sure that once the jailbreak is out and you install SBSettings, you will be able to enable the numeric battery that way instead of downgrading, jailbreaking, and then upgrading all over again
Hope that helped
Here is another way but requires SSH and this method PROVES I wasn't crazy with my "Usage" idea
-SSH into your iphone
-Go to /System/Library/CoreServices/Springboard.app/
-Download the file M68AP.plist
-Open the file using a text editor or a plist editor
-Add a Boolean value under the capabilities dictionary
-Boolean Key = gas-gauge- battery / Boolean Value = true
-Save and upload the file to the same directory that it was originally in
-Go onto the iPhone and respring
-Now go to the application Settings -> General -> Usage and there will be a Battery Percentage toggle and you can use it to enable battery percentage next to battery icon in top-right corner.

EDIT: I didn't see your edit till after I responded. I like your idea of doing that, but the trouble is that most people aren't going to be able to do all of that with a non-jailbroken iphone. What I was referring to was something that I am most definitely positive I saw in Apple presentation materials.

ive been trying that boolean key/plist edit method all day for the numerical battery and for some reason whenever i copy the edited file back into the same directory and respring my phone, the toggle fails to show up under usage...anyone know why? (and will this work once 3.0 jailbreak through quickpwn is released)

I actually think that when we saw the Numeric battery in any screenshots they were all posted by people OTHER than Apple, thus I presume they were jailbroken prior to 3.0.
Go look at Apple.com and if you find one of their pictures with it then post it here, otherwise I'm pretty sure that it's not a "built in feature"
Oh and I am 100% on your side in thinking it was built into the stock firmware! haha! I think we were BOTH wrong though

Second, thanks for showing how tough you are as well.
Third, like i said you should be patient, we should all be very thankful to the devteam for doing this in "their spare time". Like i said, they do not make money off of this at all (at least to our knowledge, who knows maybe apple pays them to do this and thats why there always seems to be a hole, unlikely but you never know).
Fourth, a lot of people make promises without being able to complete them in an estimated time, it is nothing new. The devteam also never gave an exact time of release for the jailbreak, all they said was, and i quote from their blog, " All of our other tools should be out pretty soon after the official Apple release." No time frame at all, pretty soon could mean ten minutes after or a day after. Want more proof of no guarantee of a release date or time, "Our tools will be released no sooner than the Apple release (just in case!)." What more can i really say to get the point to you?
Fifth, you are right i did recentely join, but that is only because i just bought my first iphone and was very interested in jailbreaking and unlocking, sorry that i am new here, i guesse i cant talk until i have been here for as long as you have been right?
And finally, if you reread what i just said you will understand that there was logic in what i said, you just cant understand it, maybe you aren`t capable of reason? just a thought.
p.s. you are right i am full of boredom as it is the summer and school is out, however i am not a pre-teen as you say, i am 20 years old.
EDIT1: A very good reason for any delay that might be or might not be is that something unexpected might have shown up with the final 3.0 firmware causing them to revaluate the jailbreak.
EDIT2: According to urban dictionary(not a real dictionary, but a great slang dictionary), brotha is an urban slang term for a male friend, although we do not know each or are friends it can be used in a situation like Tatoojack used appropriately.
