Why won't my iphone apps show?

After Updating from 2.2.1 on my iphone 3g to firmware 3.0 my apps will not show. My phone was jailbroken but did'nt have any problems, i didnt restore before upgrading, i simply DL the update and installed it, idk if that was the problem, i also used the app Categories so i dont know if my apps are stuck in some internal folder somewhere in the harddrive. also i have restored my iphone about 3 times and backed it up, nothing has happened, the status bar shows apps bieng installed but nothing pops up on my phone, please help

Oh, they are, each that i want are individually checked, and when i press sync after restoring it, it will show the progress of the apps bieng installed it even takes the time that it should installing my apps, and the bar which shows how much space is left over indicates apps taking up space, but then on my home screen i just have the default icons, no apps

May seem obvious, but have you checked that they're not on another screen?

ok, its official the apps are some how hidden, in settings the few apps that have managable settings from the iphone settings show, like facebook ect. so the apps ARE on the phone but i cannot see them please help, i have a very strong feeling its due to the cydia app Categories and somewhere in the process the apps got lost in a folder
