Itunes reinstalls apps when I sync
For some reason when I sync my iPhone 4 (jailbroken) it takes about an hour.
Itunes reinstalls each app to my iphone when I sync. It just started doing this.
I am using itunes 10.1.1.4 and 4.1 on my iphone 4. (I want to update to 4.2 as soon as an untethered jailbreak is available)
Is there a way to change the settings so that it does not reinstall all of my apps each time I sync.

I had the issue too. It is something buggy with the app syncing in iTunes.
Here is how to fix it without loosing all your apps.
Go to the Apps section in iTunes and select all the apps in the directory. Hit the delete button and when iTunes asks you if you want to keep the files, hit YES. This will remove all the apps from iTunes but not delete the ipa's from the computer.
Make sure iTunes is set not to automatically sync when the device is connected, then connect the device. Go to file and transfer purchases from "idevice". This will copy all the apps from the phone back to iTunes and they will be in sync again.
Hope that helps.
