    Hi
    maybee one you you noticed, that after installing 3.0 some apps like Weather or Stocks were missing. Reboot does not help and you cant install them from the App Store because it says "Installed"

    Here is Help!



    1.) You notice an App is missing
    2.) Go to Settings
    3.) Go to General
    3.) Scroll down to the Bottom
    4.) Go to Restrictions
    5.) Touch "Enable Restrictions"
    6.) Enter a Numer
    7.) and confirm it
    8.) Scroll down to Apps
    9.) Touch "Don´t Allow Apps"
    10.) Press Home-Button
    11.) Now all Apps expect the Apple-ones should be gone
    12.) Repeat step 2 to 8
    13.) This time touch "Allow All Apps"
    14.) Press Home-Button
    15.) YOur Icons should be all there

    also, if the app is not "stock" app, then in itunes - uncheck the app, sync, recheck it, sync
    it will reinstall it.

    If you update to 3.0 from jailbroken 2.x and your apps were in a folder from categories. They will not show up. You have to restore not update or uninstall categories first before updating.

    When you reinstalled the missing apps, I suppose all the saved data from the app was gone?

    hmm i was bussy with the problem, what to do when the settings app is missing.
    i thought i wwould find a fast solution, becasue i was a 100% sure, that there was at least one app i saw, from which you are directed to the settings.

    if someone knows, how to do that post it here and i´ll edit it to post #1
