    I'm running an iphone 4 on 5.1.1 jailbroken on Friday via Absinthe 2.0.1

    I came home today from work, noticed that half of my apps are gone, EVEN cydia. What is going on?? I've never had this problem before and I've jailbroken every iDevice from iphones to ipads (all generations from both).

    Things I've tried to far:
    Tried to reboot, still the same.
    Tried to do a hard reboot, still the same.
    Tried to restore from backup, still nothing.

    List of missing apps to name a few:
    Camera
    App Store
    Notes
    Contacts
    Maps
    Mail
    Cydia
    Calendar


    List of apps that were still there:
    Photos
    Youtube
    Clock
    Itunes
    Videos
    Music
    Phone
    Settings
    Safari
    Messages
    Reminders
    Weather
    Stocks
    Voice Memos
    Newstand

    Does anyone have any idea what went wrong? I haven't even had the chance to add any cydia apps because there was so much traffic the past couple of days.

    I remembered the very last thing I downloaded at work today was Words with Friends through the app store, now I don't even have an app store!

    Any ideas?

    Try restore your phone and re-jailbreak. I did it that way and restored from my backup after I had run Cydia.
    Until the next time… And if I help you out, give me a "Thanks!" Thanks!

    +1. Your stock apps going missing means something with the restore or jb went wrong. Your very best solution is to restore and reJB.

    Edit: It's hard to tell what exactly went wrong. I've had it happen to me once, and it was due to the jailbreak more so than the upgrade/restore. It's a fluke, just gotta redo it.

    Thanks for the replies!


    I did it and it worked, BUT as I installed FolderEnhancer, some of the icons vanished again, but luckily this time...I still had the cydia icon so I could easily remove FolderEnhancer from my packages and it went back to normal. Not sure if it was FE that was causing it or something else, but its okay. I got it back to normal. Thanks again.

    Good to hear! Some Cydia tweaks aren't updated yet for iOS 5.1.1.
    Until the next time… And if I help you out, give me a "Thanks!" Thanks!

    i found a way to fix it without restore

    you can actually get all the missing apps back i had this problem on my iPod touch 4G and i fixed it by downloading ifun box then clicking on my device clicked on search and typed in cydia all the folders and stuff that came up i deleted and vala they came back no respiring or anything needed
