    I'm on a jailbroken iphone 4 and I just realized I cannot download apps from App Store. What happens is when I hit install, the app store closes immediately and nothing happens. I can update my apps but I cannot download new apps. I am currently using the categories cydia app, anyone have any issues with categories and downloading apps in app store? Anyone else having this problem?

    not sure what you did could be a conflict most of us don't have this issue. Apple always takes my money! :apple: might want to tell us more what programs you installed j/b etc.

    Reboot the phone and computer
    De-Authorize then re-Authorize iTunes

    I have both Categories and CategoriesSB on my iPhone 4 and it works just fine with iTunes.

    I know why my app store kept crashing...it was because i had in a categories folder. I just took it out of the folder now it works fine.

    That shouldn't have crashed the App Store. At least it never did on my 3G. I don't have it on my iPhone 4.

    I was just going to suggest that. Yeah, this issue has been reported in a couple of threads before.

    It **might** be an iOS4 issue. The AppStore on my JB'd iPad running 3.2.1 works fine from within a folder, but it crashes immediately as described from within a similar folder on the iPhone 4. Both devices have SBSettings, Categories, and CategoriesSB installed; the only other difference is that the phone has BiteSMS.

    Same workaround fixed the problem, just removed AppStore from the Categories folder I'd created and it works fine now.

    This problem appears to have been fixed. At least it's not happening on my iPhone any more.

    Apps from App store now working

    I had the same problem, in my case it wasn't 'categories' since I haven't this one installed, it's just that I had the App icon inside 'SBSettings' 'Dock'. I put it back and now works perfectly. Weird really.

    This thread helped me to guess so I just wanted to share.
    thanks!!

    :):)

    Cannot downloads from AppStore

    I had the same issue on my jailbroken 3G iOS 4.1.
    This was because I had docked AppStore in SBsettings.
    Problem solved by restoring the AppStore icon to the springboard.
