How do I retreive a lost iPhone application?

Asked by HeNkiSdaBro (392points) February 29th, 2008

I just received my 16Gb iPhone, great! It is now unlocked/jailbroken but I have of some reason lost the “Pictures” application. It is not only gone from the Spring Board but from the file system itself. I think it should be possible to get a copy of this folder from another iPhone owner and just add it to my device. Does anyone want to help out having an iPhone? Or does somebody have a solution how to restore this application?

It could just be hidden. I think you need Summerboard to make the program visible again. I might be wrong on the name of the program, but whatever it is you can find it at

Thank you, I took a look at the site. Nothing about the Pictures application there. I already have Summerboard installed and cannot find anything about hidden icons. Neither can I find the application folder when browsing the iPhone file structure. It should be located inside the Applications folder I presume, but it is not there.

theredjawa, do you have an iPhone? Would you like to help me making a zip file of that app folder and send it to me? I would be very thankful!

Mine isn’t jailbroken. I did that already and bricked one so now I am just waiting for the SDK and hope for the best. You are talking about PHOTOS right?

Alright, thanks! The SDK will indeed be interesting. Maybe finally Skype and some SIP solutions will come.

Yes, it might be called PHOTOS… the picture slideshow application. I did find something on my second pass on modmyifone… waiting for account activation. stock applications folder. Hope it works.. Thanks for your help.

my bad. That’s the easiest thing and I didnt even think of it.

Thanks guys for your help. I did restore the phone now and everything is back to normal. I did involve reinstalling all the 3rd-part apps which takes its time. I restored it to the newer version 1.1.4 and used Zibri’s just released newer version of Ziphone to unlock/jailbreak it. Works like a charm. Thanks for your help!
