    Still getting the 0xe800002e error when updating Apps in Tunes. I'm disappointed they didn't fix this yet. It's a pain deleting apps and losing all data just to update.

    This was the one issue I was hoping Apple would address in the 2.1 update. How unfortunate.

    Hi, mrurmil,

    I'll bet you did an update, instead of a restore, to get to 2.1, yes? Try a DFU restore and clean up that corrupted application database first. Make sure that you set up your phone as a new phone after doing so, instead of restoring from backup. Otherwise, you're just going to reload the corrupted database. Use Sync instead to get back your apps, etc. This works great for me!

    If you're not familiar with it, I posted the DFU restore procedure here.

    Good Luck!

    I haven't upgraded to 2.1 yet... but I certainly try this and let you know.

    Thanks for posting the link. :D

    Will I lose all my SMS messages if I do this?

    You lose everything that is not on your computer somewhere, so yes.

    A better option is to uninstall all the apps on your phone, then sync to get a backup. Then do a restore, meaning you have a "clean app database". Then reinstall all your apps, it might be best to delete them from itunes and re-download them, but probably not necessary.
    You will lose the app data, but not sms, phone settings etc

    Is this from an Ad-Hoc app?

    And it's probably your iTunes.. If not do a full restore on your iPhone.

    Sure enough, after I took your advice, the problem has disappeared. Thank you.
