Thread: All apps disappear after upgrade

    Default All apps disappear after upgrade
    Hi,

    I just updated the firmware from 1.1.3 to 1.1.4 using iTunes.

    All the 3rd party apps disappeared from Springboard, but they're still on Installer's uninstall list.

    Any way to get them back on the Springboard?

    (Don't tell me I have to re-install them all!!)

    When upgrading to another firmware, it's probably a good idea to restore to that new firmware. It's the cache that doesn't get wiped, so the other apps stay in the uninstall list.

    Yup, anytime you change firmware, Itunes will erase everything you put on the phone.

    You need to do a restore though, to clean-up the file system a little. Thats why installer is saying the apps are installed.

    So how do I erase the installer cache? Just click Restore in iTunes?

    Yes.

    If you still have issues, you can run the "refurbish" utility in Ziphone.

    NO....Apple is 100% AGAINST hacking the iphone and placing "unapproved" software on it. That is why every update is a complete OS package which wipes everything.

    first, download 1.1.4's restore firmware. it's posted in the download section here. then in itunes, you want to ctrl + restore to pull up the screen for you to choose what file you want to restore with
