    So I jailbroke my 2G ipod touch a while ago and downloaded an app that let me make folders on my springboard to put apps in. When the new itouch firmware came out I upgraded and my itouch was no longer jailbroken. When i did this all of the apps that were in folders dissapeared from my springboard. They are still on my Itunes and i still get updates for them. When i update them they appear on my springboard while they are updating and then dissapear when finished. Does anybody have any idea how I could get them to appear again? I'm running 3.1.2 now btw. Thanks

    When you update from a jailbreak your settings including most jailbroken settings (such as hiden icond / folder icons) are backup.

    The ipod is basicly putting them back in the folders but you cannot view them since you do not have that app anymore, categories was it?

    U will need to jailbreak and install the app again or restore and do not import a backup

    Just go to Settings > General > Restrictions > Enable Restrictions > Put whatever password you want then disable the restrictions and all your hidden apps should reappear on the springboard
