    Default I bet this question will stump most of you. iTunes and AppStore related.
    So today, I caught my little sister messing with my phone. So I went into Cydia, bought the tweak "iGotYa". I resprang my phone, and I noticed that none of my apps were in their folders. They weren't anywhere, just gone. It deleted my text messages, photos, videos, music and everything, except my checkbook (weird). The apps I had installed were there, but they wouldn't open. I even went into iFile and looked around to see if my information was there, but it wasn't even there. Just gone. So I got home, and restored my phone from backup. Seeing as how it was already jailbroken all my tweaks and whatnot worked fine. My text messages were restored, and all was good. Now I just had to put my music back on my phone. But wait, iTunes all the sudden says that the "other" category has 15.3 GB in it. Why? I do not know. All I know is that iTunes says my phone is over capacity, but my settings in my phone say that I have plenty of space.

    Any ideas? I'd rather not like to restore..

    The iGotYa app probably "pretends" to erase everything. All you gotta do is uninstall it and you should be fine.

    I did uninstall it. And everything was still gone.

    *EDIT*
    I think what happened was that when I restored it from backup, everything got moved to a different folder that iTunes doesn't recognize.I'm not sure why, or where the folder is though.

    Other is usually all of the cydia apps. So all i can think of right now if for you to restore and to start out as new.

    -.-' But I don't hardly have anything from Cydia installed. And it wasn't like that before I installed the tweak. I'm stumped D:

    Exactly BEFORE the tweak was installed. Did you try uninstalling it?

    Yes, I uninstalled it right after I noticed everything was out of place. And then it stayed like that. I rebooted, threw it into safe mode, everything. Don't know what happened.

    But since it looks like I have to restore, do you reccommend a specific program for backing things up? Or just through SSH?

    SSH or an iTunes backup. For cydia I'd reccommend aptbackup which makes a list of all your stuff or pkgbackup (paid, but worth it) that lets you reinstall all of your apps. I'd also suggest a passcode to prevent your sister from doing this again.

    Yea I'm gonna kill her if she messes with it again. She has an iPod Touch of her own, why she needs to mess with my iPhone, I will never know. But thanks for your help.
