    Hey.
    OK, a guy lended me his iPhone (3G) because he wanted me to jailbreak it.
    First I took a backup of the phone in iTunes and updated his firmware from 2.2 to 2.2.1. Then i jailbroke it, but when it was restarting it showed the apple logo and did not boot up. He had lots of thing and I'm dead if I don't get it back! Well, I restored it again, but when I did "restore from backup...", I only got back the contacts, SMS's, settings back like weather cities, clock alarm, mail and pictures. Music did not come back!! And the apps & games from the app store!! What should i do??? What is that???

    Apps, games and music are stored in the specific iTunes account, not the backup file. The backup will save the settings, icon order, email settings and passwords etc. He will need to re-sync his phone to his iTunes account to get his apps and games back.
