If you tap "Update" in the App Store and the app opens instead of updating, this is an Apple bug instead of anything related to your jailbreak.

Hi.

When updating to ios 6.1, for some reason I had to restore to factory settings, then restore from the backup that ios6.1 made.

I could then not install my old apps from itunes, I guess because they were all from jailbreak sources.

So I jailbroke the phone (iphone 4), expecting this to solve the problem but alas no. Itunes attempts to install them onto my jailbroken phone, but the phone tells me that they could not be installed and of course no icon appears.

Is there something I can do? If not, I really cannot see what the jailbreak has achieved for me.
