    Wait a sec... I found a couple that didnt have data but I only checked a few apps and those were apps I didnt really care about... I started checking the rest of my apps and the seem to have all the data!!! Awesome so that on program not only revealed the apps but also made the right ones appear. I-Law One you are a life saver! Amazing program btw I use it all the time.
    This only leaves one problem.... What to do about the duplicates. Do I take the risk and sync with itunes by trying to transfer all these first? Or do I delete them via ssh? Need some advice.
    But please tell me- is there anything wrong with deleting appstore apps via ssh? Like does it mess up syncing w/ iTunes or does it think I just deleted them normally?

    Edit: Just noticed another problem, nothing major but now none of my cydia apps that are themed from the theme Im using show up in overboard...

    Sorry I've been engrossed with a serious deadline...glad to know I was able to help...I personally don't delete apps via ssh...there's something else, that can batch delete, or just delete normally. Can't remember what it's called now.

    You can re-sync with itunes on the mac end (I do that) and there's NOT going to be any problem!...You can also try reinstalling overboard and getting the theme back... hope all your 'troubles' are over now?

    Let me know if you need anymore help.
    Don't forget the thanks button...

    -to delete app store apps, hold finger on an app, til they go in wiggle mode then click the X and delete it. Its easy i dont know why you would want to delete via ssh.
    -to delete JB apps go into rock and go to manage and uninstall it and anything that it uses.

    doing it that way makes sure all things of that app are gone.

    Every app you bought you can get off your idevice and put in itunes by:
    -click on store tab on top, authorize computer
    -then right click idevice and click transfer purchases.
    -then you can do a sync with nothing deleted.
    (if worst case scenario, repurchase the apps. if you have bought it before, it wont charge you again.)

    and you could always restore and repurchase everything in the worst worst case scenario >.>

    @ jbone1337 - If anyone can figure out how to delete apps via ssh, I don't believe deleting them the 'normal' way as intended by Apple should be a problem for the same person, and I'm sure anyone who owns an iphone/ipod knows the 'normal' deletion method...also, I've had nothing but nightmares with Rock (in the past), So I do not recommend it to anyone

    yes in the past Rock may have had problems(but in the present EVERYONE has problems with cydia >.o ).
    Rock 2.20.9 is the current version.(im sure you haven't tried it)

    Lol ^ yeah i know to delete them normally... some people...
    Anyways Im talking about deleting duplicates of apps that exist on my iphones application files but dont physically show up on my springboard and dont have the application data that the ones on my springboard have. Obviously this can only be accomplished via ssh/ifile so I opened up ifile, went through my var/mobile/applications folder and I was able to figure out the apps that had data vs. the ones that dont based upon whether they had contents in the documents folder and if there was something other than the com.apple.peoplepicker plist in the librrary folder and ended up deleting nearly all of the 400 duplicates I had. The only problem I had was the apps that I never actually used yet so neither file had data on it so I didnt know which to delete. Anyways I respring and...
    About half the icons on my springboard are missing!! I panic and tried respringing and rebooting several times then tried the icon restoration thing a couple times.... Nope. Half of them still missing.

    Edit: Yes!! Ok I had some updates from the appstore so I hit update all... And waddaya know... All my apps show up again!! (: Only problem left now is that I have about 15 or so duplicates left takin up a little more than half a gig on my phone... Is it worth using these apps to be able to delete them then going through this again? Or should I just be satisfied? Do you think itunes will be able to see and sync just the one that show up on my springboard?

    hmmm well if you copied the apps via ssh, you can fully delete them via ssh. Just have to figure out which are real and which are duplicated and delete them manually 1 by 1.

    And ya you can use ifile to easily find the number of the folder the apps are in and which ones are duplicated.

    if you want to spend the time you can load up each app from the springboard change some things(like settings or go play around in a game for a little bit) and save it and exit it.
    Then use ifile and go in var/mobile/applications (could probably do it in ssh also)
    go into the app you want to know differences in and go in the Documents folder in the app. Look for profile/save/settings files in here and look for last date changed. The ones you used today will be the real ones

    edit: Or you can transfer purchases/re-download them all from app store and fully restore lol

    I agree with the above (except that restoring/re-downloading is NOT an option cos you would loose all previously stored data in these apps)...that should let you know which duplicates to delete. The alternative would be to download a free app from itunes and then check it's reference under ssh. Any duplicate that's exactly similar would be the good ones and the others can be trashed

    yes in the past Rock may have had problems(but in the present EVERYONE has problems with cydia >.o ).
    Rock 2.20.9 is the current version.(im sure you haven't tried it)

    and actually i didnt know about the wiggle mode til like a few weeks after getting my touch lol T.T

    On the contrary, I've never had problems with cydia, and would stay with cydia until saurik or the DT say otherwise...and I guess it does pay to read the instruction manual (I should take my own advice too )

    When i load cydia it takes a long time to load data, then i get a pop-up each time saying error refreshing data(has problems with sources i dont even have -.-), then it reloads data. Does that each time you do anything in cydia, add/delete anything ect. Very inefficient.

    Well when was the last time cydia had an update? like a year+? lol. Rock just had one like a few days ago.

    Cydia is old, its like using windows95 instead of any of the current versions..

    i mean you dont have to get rid of cydia, i have both. But thats mainly due to some noob devs.. either not allowing or not updating to rock. Because some paid apps cant be downloaded from rock because of the dev.

    This may sound odd but what about going to Settings > General > Restrictions. If it is on, it is possible to disable all App Store apps perhaps done by a jerk friend?. I don't know if that will fix anything, but it may be worth a shot. As long as you are able to get a good sync with iTunes, couldn't you just "uncheck" sync Apps, then once all the apps are deleted from the device, just check the box to sync them again? At the very worst, you lose your high scores. But then you would, theoretically, have a working phone again, without restore.
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream!

    ^^ no this isnt a good idea. I actually am the OP and had the problem and when I synced with iTunes it got the apps back... but with NO DATA! syncing w/ iTunes created duplicates of all my apps. but seriously get iphone pc suite and theres like a thing to fix missing icons and you hook up your ipod touch and hit and use and all my apps came back. Then I had to go through the painful process of going into my apps via ssh and figuring out which were the duplicates and then deleting about 400+ duplicates. so syncing = bad iphone pc suite = good
    Codecs.com :: Download iPhone PC Suite 2.8.0.118 : iPhone PC Suite is an interesting iPhone manager

    Poster 1 is right, this is related to the cydia source update from within ROCK app. I had this happen two weeks ago, then after trying EVERYTHING to remedy I ended up restoring and going two weeks trying to get everything back. I just downloaded the Cydia Source update which un-installs "something" and the same freaking issue occured.. I'm sooo bummed looks like ill be restoring again.

    If anyone has a better way to get around this please help. The app-store apps are missing but the iPhone does not recognize them, iTunes does not recognize them either and any attempt to get the apps back creates duplicates. Is there a missing or corrupt database, can i rollback the rock change and re-install whatever it was that just implicitly un-installed with the "cydia source update" package.. GRR this is SUCH a drag.

    go into var/mobile/Library/RYP/logs and delete the rockapp log. Then respring/reboot and then go into rockapp and go to manage settings and press clear cache and then all of your icons should be restored. I had this issue and the fix is thanks to some one els on a thread called like how to fix 0mb on /var or something. I foget the original poster but if you dont fix it soon enough sbsettings will show up w/ 0 mbs on var like it did to me but this fixes it. And yes this is a rockapp issue. After doing this fix you can then update rockapp safely thru cydia and it will remain fixed. Hope I helped. (by the way this was not the original issue I had on this thread but I did get it later)
