Installed 2.2.1 on Jailbroken iphone, lost the apps I had in categories
Could really do with your help here!!!
Have MAJORLY messed up, I stupidly without thinking installed the 2.2.1 update, and now my iphone has lost all it's apps that I had put into categories.
I tried jailbreaking the phone again but of course I had put all the installer apps into categories, where they remained...hidden somewhere on my phone.
I didn't think about this at the time so put my phone back into DFU mode and tried installing 2.2.0 instead. It then wouldn't let me use any of my IPSW files so I had to do a normal restore, bring iPhone back into jail!!!

So does this mean I need to buy all my apps again? I don't think I could face doing that :-S
At the moment I have been re-booting my phone as a back-up from last sync. Do I need to load it as a new iPhone to do this?
If I load it up as a new phone, can I still upload the apps that I have purchased in the app store?
Thanks for your help :-)

Would it be better if I used this? Found it in another forum...
Had the same problem and found this searching the net... Quick easy fix for the catogories problem
"I had the missing Cydia and Installer issue as well.
What worked for me was to delete the Springboard plist file.
You can use iPhone Browser
(iphonebrowser - Google Code)
to access the root directory of your jailbroken iPhone.
The file to delete is:
After you delete it, reboot and all missing icons will reappe

I wiped my phone twice today...at least I thought I had? I went into DFU, did a restore to jailbreak it again after the update and that worked but I thought it hadn't as couldn't see the apps. It wasn't until un-Jailbreaking that I realised my mistake with categories.
So to summarise so I understand, I need to wipe my iPhone and re jailbreak it as a NEW IPHONE rather than a restore? Doing this will get me my appstore apps back? Or have I missed something?
