    Had a 2g JB/unlocked iphone, got a new 3GS and transferred the apps from old iphone to new via itunes backup, knew the unauthorized apps and cydia/icy would not transfer, figured I'd just JB again and get what did not transfer. As expected the authorized apps came over to the new phone but also "quickpwn" did too, and it works. I looked at my app list on itunes and quickpwn is not there but it is on the new phone. I am guessing that some quirk is not recognizing quickpwn as unauthorized! maybe something the dev team could expand on...:)

    Do you have any idea what you are talking about?

    OP, did you by any chance have a bookmark of that website on the iPhone's homescreen? I'd say it could be that, or the restore from backup that you did might not have gone through perfectly.

    basically any cydia apps will not show in iTunes as they are not iTunes apps, I don't think there is a quickpwn iphone app (I may be wrong) quickpwn is a computer based app (from what I remember), the quickpwn your seeing might be a homescreen bookmark to the quickpwn website which is why it's on the new iPhone.

    I've seen apps on Cydia that have all the contact info (websites, twitter, etc) for individuals or groups. I'm pretty sure I've seen one for the "people" (using the term loosely, especially since they're getting clicks for squatting on a site based on a term coined by the Dev Team) for that "group". Obviously I'm not guaranteeing that they have one, I just think they would have set one up.

    I would check, but I recently re-jailbroke and don't have as many repos as I used to.

    Are you talking about cracked IPA apps? The ones where you have to use Appsync in order to put them on your phone. They're not from Icy/Cydia they are just pirated Apple Stores apps.
