Had to restore, now almost all apps are missing. Please help
Let me start with, I'm extremely new to this, I did search but came up empty. Also, "iPhone help" was the closest I could find to post this question.
-Just jailbroke my iphone 3g, installed a bunch of apps through cydia etc.
-did a sync this morning to backup everything.
-phone crashed/locked up whatever, stuck on the loading apple.
-did the dfu and restored to where the phone was working but
most of my apps, including cydia and everything I installed with it are missing. One app I installed called "categories" (I'm thinking this might be part of the problem)is a folder app and is where I stuck most of the apps but not cydia and a few others.
My ? is, can I get them back easily, if not, I don't mind too much having to jailbreak again as it was pretty painless but I'd like to understand my options and what is going on.
Any help? Thanks
