    Was trying to install a newsreader program that I downloaded.

    I'm used to installing .ipa files, but this was a folder that was like "inewsreader.app".

    So I assumed to install it, you just copied & pasted it into the Applications folder on your phone with all the rest of the folders like that.

    I did that, but it didn't show up in my Springboard after a reboot, so I went to delete it.

    (I used a program called "Diskaid" to do all this btw. Works with data cable... no SSHing or WIFI stuff)

    I highlighted the folder for the app, rightclicked onit and hit "Delete".
    It seemed to go thru the motions, but was still there.

    So I highlighted it again, and deleted it... this time it seemed to work and was gone.

    But I noticed a blank spot on my Springboard, and after looking at all my apps... realized that Youtube app was no longer there!

    Apparently, even tho I thought I had the Newsreader app highlighted... it must have somehow deleted the Youtube app instead.

    (I would guess... tho I'm positive the news app was highlighted, that's what I rightclicked on and chose Delete on... so I don't really know what the Hell happened.)

    So basically my question is...
    how do I get the native Youtube app back?
    (without doing a restore)

    Is this even possible?
    Is there someplace I can download it and reinstall it?

    I was on Planet-iPhone's site, and there was a place to download stock iphone apps like this, but the guy who posted the youtube app, said it was from his 1.14 firmware phone. Mine is a 3G 2.1 iphone, and don't know if it would work, or how to install it either.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated...
    Thanks!

    Idk know much about troubleshooting iphones, but i was able to find this:

    Apple - Support - Discussions - Updated to 2.1 and lost my App Store ...

    You can try it out, other than that i havent found a way to add original apps on firmware 2.0 or above.

    thanks, but I don't think that would help.
    I deleted the whole folder for the app somehow, and need to get a copy of it to put back if that's possible.

    but thanks for trying!
