    Hey all, I just recently jailbroke my iPad (my first time jailbreaking any device) with sn0wbreeze and everything seemed to go fine. After the iPad came back on I noticed that it did not have any of my previous app store apps installed. It basically looked like a fresh iPad with the exception Cydia installed. Did I miss/skip a step, or do I need to go in and redownlaod all of my old apps? Sorry for the noob question, any halp would be appreciated!

    Thanks!!!

    You should just have to Sync with iTunes and preform a restore from a backup or last sync. This will reinstall your apps from iTunes.

    Cool, I'll give it a go! I thought that would "delete" the jailbreak. I will try it right now and let you know what happens!! Thanks for the lightning fast responses!!!

    To be clear, the jailbreak did not remove any apps. It was the restore you did first that did. Your apps have to be reinstalled any time you do a full restore. But as stated above a simple iTunes sync will bring them back.

    I did not choose to do a full restore to jailbreak. I merely updated to 4.3.1 so all my apps, besides Cydia apps, stayed in place. I used PkgBackup to restore my Cydia apps.

    Anytime have fun and be cautious! Remember if you jack it up you can always restore and start over.

    See you got lots of good advice in the meantime, but just so you know, sn0wbreeze creates a jailbroken custom firmware with nothing except Cydia installed. Therefore you start with a clean system using this method.

    redsn0w on the other hand installs on top of your current firmware allowing you to continue from where you were.

    I've just added this info to the jailbreak methods sticky.
