    Default AppStore problem with categories....
    so after jailbreaking my iPhone for like a month... i've noticed more problems ontop of my weird streaming and safari issues I was browsing the AppStore for fun and all the catories are showed up as "AppStore" and all use the same icon...
    this is kinda worrying me into thinking that my iPhone is conspiring against me and is slowly decaying so please anyone with ideas? worst case scenario is that I have to restore and repersonalize my phone again -.-

    Same problem what icon is yours showing. Is it a program you recently installed. also when you try to sync it with itunes does it say that it cant sync becuase the iphone is disconnected?

    umm I don't know which icon it was the time I made this thread, but now it's changed to skype icons :/ and this is looking a bit hopeless so I'll try to find time to restore I guess

    Jailbreaking the phone doesn't cause the problem. I bought my phone 2 days ago and it was already screwed like that. The categories all say app store and the symbols all show skype. I then jailbroke it and the same thing happened. I then restored it and updated to version 3.1 and the app store categories is still messed up. Anyone know how to fix it?

    Ok guys. I did some research and here is what I got. It is actually a regional problem. It is apple's problem. If you are located in Canada, you will have this problem. This problem started a week ago. It is also glitchy. It will work for some users but some won't. It may not work and then all of a sudden work. Apple has not said anything about it yet but let's just hope this will be fixed soon. Hope this helped a bit.

    great thanks a lot

    where did you find this out and how will we know when the glitch is fixed?

    Hey guys, i just fixed mine in two seconds. hope this works for you to.. let me know... so what i did was go into the app store>categories go all the way to the bottom and click on acount then on view account and change the country agree to the terms and then on the next screen just press back or cancel or w.e untill you get back to categories and they should all be back to normal but then if you change back to canada it screws it back up
