Lost menu entries???


N80 on generic firmware V4.0623.0.42.

Its been fine no lockups, no problems whatsoever untill a few days ago, I turned the phone off one night and when I turned it back on it has lost all the menu entries for all the apps/games I have installed( quite a lot, ~30).

The apps were installed to the memory card. The phone can still see the memory card as far as loading a theme from it or saving pictures to it and the App Manager application still has all my applications shown as installed.

Anyone any idea how to get teh menu entries back? I have quite a few games that were direct downloads to the phone so I don't have the jars to reinstall from my PC.

Anyone know where they get stored on teh memory card? I've looked with file manager but can't find anything(Y browser was installed but is one of those missing!)

on pc, enable to show the hidden files and folders, then search for *.jar
i'm sure you can find.
after that, copy your games, apps etc.
then format your memory card.
