You might still be able to use the email for the Cydia account.. try logging in. If that doesn't work, idk.

@Curly420 That won't work for deleted accounts.

I was hoping the people @cydia could somehow ling my new gmail account to my apps but I guess maybe they don't keep track like that. I da' know.

You had actually had a conversation with me about this a couple weeks ago, and it got lost in the noise for some reason. I have found that conversation and fixed this. :(

Glad you got it sorted out for them. Let me apologize for a couple people here.

I apologize to @ChrisBCream that @saurik got super busy (kinda sucks for him but it happens with every new jailbreak) and that it did get lost temporarily.

I appologize to @saurik for the lack of patience @chrisbcream had knowing (but maybe not thinking it thru when they did it) that they were deleting something that is pretty important to account management

Yes that it very true. We (I) learn from our mistakes. And I do thanks you so much. I won't be deleting my account again. Peace. Chris

Did you delete your entire Google account, or just the Gmail part of your Google account? If you deleted your entire Google account, that's not good. If you just deleted the Gmail part, you can log in with your Google account.

I deleted my entire gmail account. I feel kinda dumb now. I really only used it for Cydia.

If you just had a few purchases, it's probably easiest to start over. If you had a lot of purchases, you can try sending a polite email to saurik ( explaining the situation, including the address of your old Google account and the address of a new Facebook/Google account that you've used to log into Cydia. He doesn't always get a chance to look at emails like that though.

It's funny tho when I redownloaded ifile it recognized me and installed my license from when bought it on my other phone. I have the iPhone 5 now.

If you've logged in with a different account in the past (different gmail or Facebook) Cydia might allow you to download your stuff through that, packages will be marked in yellow.

You can send him a polite followup email if you like. He does his best to help with mistakes like this but he definitely has been very busy.

(11 Feb '13, 15:01) britta britta's gravatar image

(JonSeals: That happens when you were previously logged into the purchasing account on that device - the purchases got linked with the device so you don't have to log in again to use them.)

(11 Feb '13, 15:03) britta britta's gravatar image

no, he helped. stuff falls thru the cracks. if you have twenty things going on at work, do you get every single thing done on time without any little oopses? :p

(19 Feb '13, 05:16) theiphoneguy ♦ theiphoneguy's gravatar image
