    Hello Geeks,

    I do not believe anyone is experiencing my problem but just in case one of you experts out there will know a quick fix for this.

    My App Store icon is showing a number "3". That is how many apps on my phone that have an update available. I proceeded into the store and updated the apps on my phone. Done!

    Problem, that was a few days ago. Ever since that update the number "3" on the icon has not reset and it's still showing although the apps have already been updated. Furthermore, iTunes today is showing me that there are apps available for updates but my App Store on the phone is not receiving a new list of updates.

    So essentially the app store program on the phone seems to have the updates feature stuck. The update number counter for the icon is not resetting. The updates feature in the app store checks for updates but finds none although there is. Everything else is working, i.e. searching and installing apps.

    My phone is jailbroken. Anyone knows if I can get into the phone via WinSCP and delete like a configuration file for the app store so that it can refresh itself automatically or something along that line?
