Thread: iPhone restored, core apps missing?

    Default iPhone restored, core apps missing?
    Hey guys,
    So my 3G decided to go into an infinite boot sequence after messing around with winterboard, and so i put it into DFU mode to restore. So after it restored i used a backup from a few months ago that was when the iphone was still jailbroken. One of the mods I did back then was use "Poof!" on prefs and made some apps (Contacts, Calculator, Stocks) disappear from the home screen (but still able to bring them up with the quick gold launcher). Now with a restored iphone + backup (non jailbroken), those 3 apps are STILL missing from the home screen even after the restore. And after upgrading to 3.0, I can't even search them using finder. Is it the backup that is doing this? Thanks!

    I would say Yes, probably 100%.

    So what do you suggest I do? Is there any way to keep my backup? Would I have to get my texts, contacts etc through ssh and then just ssh them back over after a clean restore with no backup?


    edit: nvm fixed it by resetting settings

    There are a ton of people that have this same problem because of not taking apps out of categories.
    Some have had success by going into settings/general/ restrictions, enable and than disable /reboot.
    Good luck.
