    Default App Store apps won't open nymore
    Well I had a problem with swaptunes and restored my 2.0.2 iphone... Everythng worked after I redownloaded all my apps... today i plugin my iphone and it says backing up, then a windows pops up like always saying can't backup some programs because i'm not authorized to play them on the computer... i click ok... i open myspace and it closes... all my appstore apps close 2 seconds after i open them... please help me...
    Edit: I;ve restored my iphone, and repwned and still same problem
    Edit 2: After doing some searching I read to deauthorize my computer and then reauthorize it, still nothing... Then I desided to creat a new itunes account and download a different program then what i purchased before, still not working...

    My friend just jailbroke his iphone and said his other apps wont launch now. I decided to write him a long email. I included links on how to fix his problem, plus other problem fixes I've had to deal with recently. Read through all this. Some apply to your issue as well.

    My response to my friends problem...................

    Maybe it’s as easy as this? (for your apps not launching after jail break)

    Here’s an even better thread:

    Try some of the easy fixes first. It might be easier to do a restore and start from scratch. (see *** below)

    first learn how to do these two things:

    1)
    You can a browses / transfer /delete files via iPhone Browser
    iphonebrowser - Google Code (download is in upper right)
    This program is helpful so you can transfer off video files you record via Cycorder etc.

    2)
    You can also do SSH via WiFi
    How to SSH into your file (file transfers etc)
    SSH on Windows - ModMyI - Wiki
    *note wifi is shut off 30 seconds after your iphone goes to sleep. You can install insomnia via cydia to have the option to keep it on.


    More trouble shooting………

    Mail wont launch? (quick fix)
    Install BossPrefs from Cydia, use the “fix permissions” button on the next page of options

    Read through some of these to get familiar with what type of stuff can go wrong and how to fix it. Once your phone is stable it’stable for good. My best final fix was to do a restore, (NOT let itunes sync a single thing) immediately do jail break, then install other regular apps one at a time (never through itunes) I also disabled itunes backup (see below)

    Apps take 10 minutes to install? (work around fix)

    I also then disabled the itunes backup process. I only let itunes sync music/videos, and that’s it. I don’t even let itunes install apps to make sure my phone stays stable. iPhone Backup Switch
    You can use the app backup from Cydia to backup specific appstore app data. (I backup my wine log etc)

    Another interesting fix

    I sent him one more email after the above too.
    Subject: emergency restores, worst case scenerio (good to know)

    If you are ever totally ******, as in the phone wont even bootup. Here is how to recover everything. (see video) It’s called putting your phone into DFU mode.

    Also……..

    After itunes restores the iphone back to factory defaults (vanilla nothingness) , you have the option to let itunes restore from your last full backup. (only if you’ve let your last backup complete, and you havnt disabled it)

    You’ll then have all your email settings, text messages, phone settings, and AppStore apps put back to they were.
    (minus ALL jailbroken/cydia apps/data)

    I opted out of any backups, because I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s always best to jailbreak from a vanilla factory reset phone, rather then jailbreaking a phone that has a lot of apps installed already. I use the “app backup” in cydia to backup data from my wine log etc.

    I also use itextuploader to backup my text message logs. (also installed via cydia) you have full access to your text messages online then too.

    I finally got it working, I tried both the things that would posted about, what I fainally did was purchase and app through itunes and then let it install on my phone and then that worked so i purchased an app from my phone and it worked... everything is working now but one question, how do i set up my itune to not backup my phone, i think that's what messed it up in the first place

    In iTunes...

    Edit...Preferences...Synchronizing Tab

    Uncheck automatic synchronize all iPods and iPhone...

    That should do it...

    Cheers...
