    Hi guys.
    Yesterday I was in a Wi-Fi Spot and the iTunes Store in the iPhone detected 5 updates for the iPhone. I managed to upgrade 2 of them, but the rest where just in the process of being updated. I had to the left the restourant in a rush because of personal problems. Unfortunately, I have no Wi-Fi in my house, so I left it there, and I though iTunes was going to upgrade the apps for me, but it didn't. So the next day (today), I connected the iPhone to my computer again, and when it synced come apps, it restarted itself. The result? The apps are completely corrupted (the three I couldn't upload), I can't delete them from the iPhone, and they won't go if I delete them in my computer.

    Here is a pic. Check the first icon in the second row.

    What can I do? I can't restore the iPhone because it is jailbroken.

    Why can't you restore? Put it into DFU mode

    Because it is both jailbroken and unblocked, and I have no idea how to do that again myself once I have restored my iPhone. Not to mention I have very important Notes in the Notes app that Apple stupidly didn't put a method to move them around between your computer and the iPhone.

    Also, what is DFU?

    Lol at the site not letting me proceed when I click the link. Though, copying and pasting it in Google took me to the page. The site's method to prevent people from vising other sites is very easy to beat, lol.

    Anyways, I am going to assume some things.

    - You will make me downgrade to another Firmware.
    - That shouldn't mess with my unlock or jailbreak.
    - Making a backup of everything I want to keep means that my Notes from the notes app are going to be intact, and that the info I have in a Diary app is not going to suffer any changes either.

    Right?

    EDIT: I just saw your edit.
    I am not sure about the whole unblocking process... When I bought my iPhone, I couldn't even make iTunes recognize it without having to "activate" it, so I couldn't do ANYTHING with my iPhone.

    If you can find a wifi spot again it should continue updating the apps, thats why it says "waiting"

    That sounds like the best option so far. Even though I don't have SSH due to the lack of Wi-Fi, I have this program called DiskAid which is the same thing. Where are the folders located? The one called "Applications"? My apologies if it is obvious, but many times things are not as obvious as they look, and you end up messing up your stuff.

    Didn't work for me though. Even tried turning it off completely.
