    on my jailbroken ipod touch, i was playing around with mobilefinder and somehow the photos app disappeared. i'm not sure what the name of it was, and i don't need the photos back, but is there a way i can get back the actual app? via installer or otherwise? for now, i only have music, videos and iTunes on the bottom dock. any help would be appreciated!

    I did the same, believe it or not!
    I've uploaded the supplied APP file but everytime I start the photo, it's not doing anything, just a blank screen and eventually go back to home screen.

    mechanicalbirds, did you do anything else after upload?

    well i downloaded the app to my macbook. then i SSH'd it to where the other apps are located on my ipod touch (inside Library in the Finder). that's really all i did. i hope you can fix yours.

    I found out what I did wrong! I was using Windows at work when I ssh'd the first time. Went home, undid that and redo with Mac, works like a charm!:)

    Thanks mechanicalbirds for your response!

    Guys! Hey, You Don't Have to Do All This! On a Mac Just Get The Lastest Firmware, download it, change the name from .ipsw => .zip and unzip it (seems if it is actually a zip file!) (Skip this next step on mac) download some kind of software to open .dmg s on Windows, Next Open That Folder and Mount the Disk Image Ending in 1, After That, Just Go Into /Applications in That Disk Image! If You Do Not Want to Go Through All That Work Just PM Me and I will Give you The File, Also Weather.app is too big to upload, but leme Give You a Direct Link to it http://ibooklive.info/weather.app.zip
    if That don't work Try This ftp://ibooklive.info/weather.app.zip

    They are Actually 2 Different Files,
    Hope This helps!
    Clayton
