I always feel like a dumbass posting a new thread, but here it goes: Today i took the plunge and upgraded to 1.1.4 (not restored, i know, i know, but im lazy and wanted to see if it would work) from my previous dev team soft hack of 1.1.3. all my apps were still in the folder, just not showing up. so i used ziphone 2.6 and installer came back, but none of my apps did. they were still there in the folder, but not on the springboard. if i uninstalled and then reinstalled something using installer, it would come back. but simply changing permissions using SSH does not work. i now NEED to manually install something in the apps folder, but it will not show on the spring board! is there something installer is doing that makes the apps show up that im not doing manually? thanks! EDIT: it works now. which is odd. SO NEVERMIND AND SUPER SORRY.
