    Default Music turned in to "other data"
    I have a Jailbroken iPhone everything has been working fine. Today I plugged in my iPhone and it turned all my music in to "other" data. I have no idea how to reverse this I really don't want restore my iPhone and rejailbreak it and download all my apps. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Has no one figured this out?!? there are countless amounts of dead ended threads.... I synced up one itunes purchased album yesterday and all my music turned to "other" (orange) data and is no longer recognized. It has to be a simple fix.... jailbroken 1.1.4.

    This may work, but I haven't personally tested it yet.
    You can ssh onto the phone and navigate to


    Delete the iTunes folder along with the music folder.

    Resync your phone and iTunes should transfer the music back over. Most likely the whole problem is just a corrupted iTunesDB file.

    BACKUP the iTunes folder as a precaution.
