Where are my cydia apps?!
I have re-JB my iPhone. First I did a restore from my last sync in iTunes. After that i performed JB w/ redsn0w using the correct IPSW. It installed fine. Or so I thought. I have cydia running fine. I downloaded and installed winterboard, ripTones, qtweeter. Qtweeter works, but winterboard & riptones icons do not appear.
I have yet to sync my apps & music with iTunes, but that shouldn't have any effect on my cydia apps should it?! Not sure why winterboard isn't showing up. Any thoughts?

hmmmm that's really weird the Winterboard should be there. I hope I caught you before you did the restore but you should try going into Cydia and looking at the apps you've installed to see if Winterboard is listed. If it is trying doing a hard reboot and see if it shows up. The springboard just may need to be resprung?
Thanks for trying to catch me. I already did the restore and re-JB. Everything is working great now. Not sure what the issue was.
As for winterboard, it appeared in Cydia. Even spotlight couldn't find it.
Since I'm still learning, for future reference, is a hard reset where you hold power & home key at same time?

My iPhone 3g does this everytime it's restored and re-jailbroken. In my case, it's just the the winterboard icon is hidden. I only find it after installing SBSettings and looking in the hidden icons settings. But since mine is a 3G i can use spotbright and find it through spotlight. But if it does it again just download SBSettings, if you dont already use it and look in the hidden icons section and you'll find it there.

ive had this a couple of times, with apps, and normally its because it never got install correctly, so i normally just to a reinstall/repair in cydia and its fine. you can normally tell if something didnt go right as the install screen wont have shown any text. wheras when it has worked you normally get a load of commands and confirmations comming up before getting your "return to cydia, reboot device, respring" etc
