    Default iTunes keeps trying to install deleted apps downloaded from Installous

    Hi Everyone!

    I got a brand new 32GB black iPhone 5.
    I restored my old iPhone 3GS profile onto it and when i sync it via iTunes, every time iTunes tries to install about a dozen apps that I downloaded from Installous (on my 3GS) even though they are deleted from iTunes itself.

    This happened with iTunes 10.7 and 11

    Tried to re-install iTunes and still happens.

    What can i do to fix this.

    Thanks!!

    Installous is the likely culprit.

    Set up the iPhone as new - and don't restore from back-up. Or use the program iBackupBot to find all references to Installous in the back-up prior to restoring.

    No offense, but in the future, you'd probably avoid this issue by legally downloading apps.

    I eventually decided to just set up as a new iPhone and it's working great.
    and SeanHRCC, you're right, probably won't even JB this iPhone.
