The first thing it did upon synching was to delete all of the apps on my iPhone. I checked the application directory at: C:\Users\Username\Music\iTunes\Mobile Applications, and all of the apps were there. I went into the Itunes applications folder, and the icons were also all present.
This is normal. In regards to iTunes content, an iPhone can be synced with an iTunes library on a single computer only. When syncing an iPhone with an iTunes library on another computer, all iTunes content on the iPhone that was transferred from a different computer will be erased first. Since you did an OS rebuild - which I assume includes erasing your computer's hard drive followed by re-installing the OS, your iPhone detected your computer as a new or different computer even though you transferred the same iTunes library from your computer's backup. The iPhone does not support disk mode, which is the reason for this.
After you re-installed the OS, did you re-authorize your computer with your iTunes account with iTunes? PowerBook G4 17-inch/1.67GHz/2GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.5.6), 7200rpm-100GB HD, iPod w/Video 30GB, iPhone 3G 16GB

I'm trying to be a good boy and not jailbreak this thing. But man, stuff like this really makes you think...iPhone, Other OS
Currently Being ModeratedMay 7, 2009 2:02 PM (in response to IHateGates)I don't believe it makes any difference.
Please read my previous post regarding the reason for the apps being removed from your iPhone first, which weren't lost. They just needed to be reinstalled along with all other iTunes content which I don't believe jailbreaking an iPhone would prevent.
