    Hi guys,
    Most of the apps i get from cydia works. However, when i download apps from the app store, it opens for like 3 secs and then closes immediately.

    Any solutions?

    Thanks.

    Give more details on what you've done. Have you deleted all your apps and reinstalled? Deleted any and reinstalled? Does it happen for adding just one app from the App Store and not having any others?

    Try just syncing it with iTunes.

    I had this problem happen once with every non native, non jailbroken app on my 3G within hours after upgrading to 3.0. IOW, Cydia apps, and iCal/Safari/iPod/Calc/original installed apps worked fine. Legitimate App Store apps didn't (no, I don't have any cracked apps).

    After researching a bit, I was about resolved I could only restore....I just sync'd it. Almost immediately after it finished, it rang, so I didn't start the restore. And after I hung up, literally everything was working.

    Weird, but it worked. Maybe give it a shot.

    I installed all the old apps i downloaded from the appstore for my ipod touch. I was transferring the apps. Then I opened an app, skype but it closed by itself. So i uninstalled all the apps and downloaded the same app, skype from the appstore on the ipod itself. still the same problem. So i'm just downloading the latest firmware now, 3.0 . I hope it works!

    Sync your iPhone. It worked for a person I'm following on Twitter.

    this happens to me with the ESPN app. it starts to open and immediately crashes. i've deleted it from the phone and from my computer. installed it on the phone and on my computer. restarted, reinstalled, etc. nada.
    i've just given up on the app. don't have problems with any of my other ones from the app store or cydia

    I had something like this happen to me a couple times. The way I fixed the problem was to De-Authorize my iTunes library and then Re-Authorize it. Then sync.

    You need to reboot your phone RIGHT after the install BEFORE launching the app. When will people learn?

    I guess people will learn when Apple add functionality to bring up a window telling you to reboot after installing an app!

    All the same, it is a pretty unnecessary thing to require the user to do, given that apps are ring-fenced from the underlying OS.

    Excuse my ignorance, since I haven't JBed yet, but does it say this somewhere in a link, since so many people seem to keep making the same mistake that you say?

    Edit: Great I ask a question for once and get nothing!! :)

    All downloaded apps open then close in miliseconds.

    The following is my understanding of this issue after owning a 3GS 32GB for two days. I neglected to finish my Apple Store account in Itunes because my partner had registered Her own details for her Ipod. I configured Wi-fi and registered my Apple download account on the Iphone. I then downloaded a mixture of purchased and free apps which worked fine until I connected it to the PC. Syncronizing my contacts seemed to work but then I made the mistake of trying to sink my applications (None of which were downloaded via the PC). Soon discovered after disconnecting that I could no longer open any of my apps, including the purchased ones. I checked the forums, this one in particular and followed the Reset and other suggestions. Nothing worked. Uninstalling one application, a free one with limited size and reinstalling, triggered re-authentication enabling me to open all my apps. Apple must have some form of Proviso when an application is executed, a stamp that is checked for validity. I could probably recreate the issue via the app sync but have now unchecked the box. Something to think about particularly if you are new to the Iphone like me.

    In iTunes, unauthorize your computer then reauthorize. It worked for me.

    Yeah, you'd think if this reboot was mandatory, it would happen automatically...

    i had they same problem twice and it drives me nuts

    I did the same as "IwasApc" mentioned, but i forgot it the second time ^^
    I would advice you to just
    delete an app and then reinstall it
    through the Appstore, this should work

    hope that helps you

    As strict as Apple appears to be with developers, a requirement for rebooting the device after installing an app would likely meet with some resistance.

    I had the same problem. I fixed it by registering my computer on itunes then syncing. Everything is working fine now.
