    (sigh) it all started when I decided to restore my jailbroken iPod touch 2G so I can update to the 3.0 GM. Everything was fine untill 5 out of my 40 apps showed up on my home screen, I went to settings and saw it said 40 apps. So I deleted and re-installed, nothing. Today 3.0 was released to the public so I restored and got the official release, nothing; just those 5 apps. Updates came along, I try updating the an "unknown problem occured". I've looked everywhere for answers not even Apple had one so I came here. I've heard so many good things from this place, so please help me iPod touch fans.

    No my iPod touch is no longer jailbroken it's running on the official 3.0.

    That will get ya. I can't install free memory anymore because I has it in SBsettings. DFU restore then set it up as a new iPod.

    yeah!! Updating with apps in categories or apps/icons that were hidden can make things very difficult....

    I had to restore as a new iPod because I was missing my "Settings" icon

    same, had to restore as a new ipod.

    Now I have no songs, videos, pictures, or any apps, or miscellaneous data.

    at least 500 mb worth of those apps (that were there but invisible )were freed up.

    Wow thanks a lot guys your suggestions worked.


    P.S. I didn't think categories would still affect your iPod even after you restore it.

    yeah its very annoying. I think the reason it happens is that the backup backs up the "settings file" for each app, and the thing that makes it hidden in categories is in that settings file.
