guys calm down im assuming he is asking for help with apps bought in cydia... there are a lot of people who associate JB apps with Cracked apps
anyways i think in Cydia there is some setting to change.
maybe Fardob will come looking around and help you out

as far as i can understand your question, this is the best answer I can come up with.
plug your phone in let it do it's thing,
when its done go over to the left side of iTunes and click on your phone,
that brings up the screen with all your phones details and such,
then go over to the "Apps" tab at the top and tell it to stop syncing apps,
of course you will have to redownload your problem apps but after that it should be fine (i hope)

Solution for you
Just don't jailbreak your phone and steal from hardworking app developers who get nothing because you "cracked" their app.

I hate to say this, but after years of jailbreaking, the ONLY time I've seen iTunes delete apps off a phone is when they were cracked apps. I sync my phone almost every day and have a ton of Cydia apps--iTunes has never deleted a single one of them unless I'm doing a fresh restore, in which case it's supposed to delete apps.
In other words, these are probably cracked apps he's dealing with.

im not a JBer in any sense so i Wouldn't know about Cydia apps and such except from what i read but i do know iTunes and the way i view it is he is going to do it regardless (if that is in fact the case) so answering an iTunes question can't do anymore harm then has already been done.

Cydia apps will never show up in itunes. itunes doesn't even know they're there..
Turning off the app syncing may have stopped itunes from deleting his cracked apps but now none of his apps are going to get synced/backed up..
I've seen the exact thing he's talking about before..

Make sure you have Appsync for your iOS version installed on your ipod so it can install the cracked games.

Cracked apps are a douchey thing to do and not something we want discussed on these boards. (How would you like it if someone came to your work and stole a Big Mac?)
SlyFi is awesome for giving the benefit of the doubt here, but it smells fishy and I'm closing the thread.
Most apps are $0.99. There's simply NO excuse to steal them, and it hurts the rest of us because if devs can't earn a living, they'll stop making the apps we want.
