    Cydia sometimes symlinks /Applications to there.

    The applications folder is ALWAYS Symlinked to /var/stash/Applications.xxxxxx after you use Cydia.

    If you put it in there, it will show up on your SpringBoard.

    well the app i downlaoded was a .app.rar so then i took of the .rar and then i dragged it into the applications and i got directed to private/var/stash and then all the other apps have a lil folder next to it showing that pp is a folder but next to mine it shows a paper meaning its a single file, so i dont know whats going on?i see all my apps but the one i sshed in, cuz it says its a single file i cant set permissions recursively?

    Is the app you downloaded a folder?

    Just drag it directly into /var/stash/Applications

    So are you sayin´ you cant see the apps on the springboard but you can on SSH right?

    Maybe try moving the applications folder to /.

    Reboot.

    If you get stuck on the bootlogo Im sorry you will have to restore.

    Next time, Use CuteFTP, killSB (My app) when installing an app through SSH.
