I got a similar problem too..Once again,I got conned by the stupid Itune.Tried to sync all my apps into iTunes and the end result was all my apps got wiped out.Despite numerous restoring,I couldn't get back the apps,although the JB's stuff remained intact.This is strange because usually after I've backup,I'm able to restore it back.Nevertheless,during the last restoring,even my cydia stuff were wipe out..arrgggh!!! Although the older backups were in the appdata folder,it could not be called upon to restore.****.

I want to restore backup from my recent iphone (that got stolen) to my old iphone. However, when I plugged in my old iphone if back uped it self as the newest back up. The back up file from my iphone that was stolenappears in Edit -> Preferences -> Devices. However, this is the only file that does NOT appear in "restore from backup." How do I make that file appear there so I could sync my most recent info.

Hey, @randers4 good morning. My old back [February 1st, 2013] has been replaced by today's backup [February 6th, 2013]. I found the old backup [February 1st, 2013 in the appdata folder in my computer files, but I'm just not sure how to move in to iTunes. Do you mind helping me? Please.

If you option-click (on a Mac) or shift-click (on a PC) the Restore button, you should be given an option to select a previous back-up to restore from.
Go onto iTunes, right click on your device on the left-hand side bar, and their should be an option 'Restore From Backup', or something similar, click that and it'll restore your iPhone to a previous backup.

What if you get the "iPhone couldn't restore due to corruption"? That might be because of a difference in the iOS or simple because the previous backup process wasn't fully successful. Then I might recommend you to take a look at the iPhone Backup Extractor. Also I would love to see you picking up such a subject, how we can deal with corrupt backups. Cheers!
