iPhone 2.0 app crash (Editorial note added)

After updating my 1st gen iPhone to the new 2.0 software I now experience some crashing of my app store downloaded apps.  The apps crash orginally after downloading them, but instead happened after I did my first sync with my Mac with iTunes 7.7.   With this, iTunes proceeded to do a full backup of my phone, which I thought was unusual, but maybe from me purchasing some applications I thought.  After the backup completed 10 minutes later I ejected my phone and started to use some of the apps.  All of my apps that were downloaded from the app store would appear to start then crash out back to the home screen.

I have  various app store applications installed, some paid, and some free: monkey ball, enigmo, ebay, weatherbug, nytimes, airme, ureport, mobilenews, exposure.

To solve this problem I am deleting my applications from the iPhone home screen and then downloading and installing them again.  This appears to fix it.  Also you don’t have to worry about paying for the dowftware again as the app store remembers if you paid for an app already or not and tells you that you will get this as a free download.  Oh, you might want to hold off syncing your iPhone until apple fixes this problem.

Anyone else seeing this problem with the 3G or 1st gen iPhones?

    I have also experienced this same problem with my first gen Iphone. I have restored it twice the problem still consists. I later went to the Apple store where i didn’t receive to much or any guidance to what this problem is, but i was told to set up an appointment with the genius bar and i did, hopefully they can fix the problem or else i might just score a new iphone 😀 ! i will though report back of what i was told

    Dan, thanks for the info. Let us know what you hear from the genius bar. I am interested if they know about a work-around or the date of an upcoming 2.0.1 patch.
