All Apps gone after AptBackup Restore
I have quite a serious issue: After having AptBackup back up my Cydia apps I accidentally hit "Restore". I quit the app straight away and deleted it from the 'taskline' to avoid a further restore.
2mins later: My springboard restarts automatically.
Result: All AppStore apps gone, Cydia apps still installed.
The volume capacity information in iTunes shows the old apps as occupied space, but as 'Other' rather than "Apps".
Of course I could restore but then I'm gonna lose all of my app's settings as I did another sync with iTunes after the restore which was pretty stupid. iTunes only keeps one backup.
What am I supposed to do now? Is there a possibility to restore the apps and settings from the iPhone (nothing about the apps in SSH also, at least not under
As you can imagine, I'd be extremely thankful if you could help me out.
iPhone 4, 32GB
jailbroken with Limera1n

You probably screwed it up during your hard shutdown of the aptbackup program. Sorry can't help you out then. I've used aptbackup many times without any major issues. Everynow and the my app icons disappear right after the restore. But usually I just wait a few minutes and they comeback or restarting the phone brings everything back to normal, which is why I suggested it.
