    Ever since I unlocked my 3G iPhone using Cydia and yellowsn0w, every so often, all apps downloaded from the Apple store quit working. I have to delete them, then reinstall--then a few weeks later, the same problem. But the bootleg ones never fail.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Sounds like the jailbreak is f*cking with your official files interaction with the iPhone OS.

    Besides not jailbreaking your phone?

    Possible Solution

    I just had the same problem where none of the app store apps open up.

    After that I just downloaded one fresh app and now all the other ones are a also working. :D

    Try doing that, downloading a new app that has never been on your system before.

    Good Luck

    I've been doing that but this is also necessary to repeat about once a week. No solution for this?

    Restore to a non-Jailbroken state, problems solved.

    If you must have an unlocked phone for carrier purposes, I'd try this:

    1. restore your phone to 2.2.0 OS
    2. Jailbreak your phone and unlock it.
    3. Download a fresh app from the app store
    4. Install all of your older apps
