    Opened App Store on my iPhone 3GS (JB 4.3.4) yesterday and two apps needed updating. As usual, selected "update all" and entered my password for iTunes account.

    The phone left the App store as normal and went to the homescreen to begin the update. The app began to update but then stopped and error 1004 dialogue box appeared (see below)

    This seems to be happening whenever I try to either update or download any app.

    I have reset all the cache, history and cookies from settings, turned phone off the back on again (4.3.4 is tethered jailbrake and I've used RedsnOw to reboot the phone). I have logged out of iTunes and logged back in without success.

    Anyone help?

    Not sure if you're instructing me to reboot, log in / out or if you're stating that is what you have tried.
    I have tried all that without success...pffft!

    Have apple changed something with the app store that conflicts with JBs?

    Do you have User Agent Faker tweak?
    I checked Cydia and updated that... App Store is working fine now...
    Whether UAF was the actual problem, I'm not sure.

    User Agent Faker seemed to be the key for me. I've been searching the net for 2 days trying to figure this out. All of the solutions I came across from changing the 12/24 hour clock, changing the auto time update to manual, clearing the cache cookies and history for safari as well as doing a reset of the phone all failed to do anything.

    After seeing the suggestion of UAF, I realized there was an update in cydia a couple of days ago so I though I'd try removing it and after restarting my phone, it was fixed. I was immediately able to download an app from the app store.

    There's now another update for UA Faker that fixes the App Store issue.
