    So I jailbroke my phone and all went well. Yesterday I noticed that app store is telling me I need to update an app I don't even have and the badge won't disappear. Anyone having this issue?

    I have that issue as well. Started about 2 weeks ago with an app. I just ignore it as I have no idea how to fix it or why it is happening.

    Were these apps previously installed on an earlier firmware that you had in a category or hidden.. then updated your firmware and restored from back-up in iTunes?

    Can you update them if you just tap on update? Free apps? lol

    No I didn't do any restore and I haven't had this application in the past. I would update it but it's $2.99 and it's not something I need it's some SMS program. I tried hitting update and got a message that I must first purchase the app.

    The app is SMS touch. And my cousin is having the same issue only the app he is being forced to update cost $10

    it costs MONEY to update? To be honest, this seems very much like an exploit to me. I don't see how a jailbreak can glitch to give you an app update you've had no history with before.

    Generally it gives you those messages if you're pirated the app then when you try and install the update it knows it's stolen and prompts you to have to buy it before it gives you the .free/ update.

    Def not the case here. Idk what it could be I'll attempt to sync with iTunes see if that helps. I've never owned the app or any free version of it.

    hey, Yeah. That's the same app for me. SMS touch. I don't pirate and I've never bought or downloaded this app.
