How to fix some mysterious problems.

Yesterday, I modified the Systemversion.plist file to download a cydia tweak that wasn't available on iOS 8.1.4. However, soon after, my phone resprung, and now all my apps are "'missing." I can search for them in spotlight search, but for some reason, all the factory apps are gone. Please help, I tried editing the files and placing them back in the media folder using iExplorer, but it didn't work. Please help!

Specs: iPhone 6, iOS 8.1.4 (I think lol) I had changed the iOS to 7.0.1 or something

Lmao you wanted to install an iOS 7 tweak on iOS 8! Do you realize how much has changed between those versions? Hell, a lot has changed between iOS 8.3 and 8.4. There's no way it would have worked.

Welcome to iOS 9.1! I will never understand why people who have no idea what they're doing, screw around with the version plist. Now you've learned your lesson, no?
