I am taking a guess here - if the app will not run under iOS 5.1 and for whatever reason it is no longer compatible - then you may not be able to sync it back to any of your devices. But apps that are no longer available in the app store should still run on your devices - unless the software on the device will not allow it due to compatibility issues.
You did select the app to sync by putting a checkmark next to the app name - correct? You are using the same ID that you bought the app with as well???
If the app is corrupt and it is no longer in the app store to download again - there is nothing that you can do to recover it.
many thanks for your kind response. Yes I selected the app to sync by putting a checkmark next the app name and yes I have used the same ID that I bought the app with. So I believe the app is corrupted then and there is nothing else to do:(
As far as you know is there a way to downgrade to the previous firmware 5.01?

Downgrading is not officially supported by Apple. Google can provide a whole wealth of information though.
I am not sure what would cause the app to go corrupt in iTunes. That doesn't make sense unless a sync was cancelled or you lost power during a sync - something like that might cause the corruption.
Can you share which app it is? Have you tried contacting the app developers or the support site for some help?
Sure the app is called iMame and it has been removed from the app store as far I can see.
I will try to contact the app developers for some help. But do you believe that I could get some help as well if I call Apple support?

Now that I know what the app is - and after doing a very quick Google search - I think that you are unlikely to get support from Apple. They pulled it for a reason and I'm not so sure they would want to help with an app like that one.
Read this and you will see why.

I'm having the exact same issue with my brand new iPad. Nothing is syncing right, apps, photos, videos. I don't have any banned apps. All of my apps were just downloaded onto my new laptop last night in anticipation of loading them onto my new ipad 3 today. Everything was set up fine. Cellular worked. As soon as I tried to sync with iTunes, my ipad stopped working right. even cellualr stopped working despite full bars.
I've Googled the problem but found no solutions. I'm two hours from an Apple Store, so I'm basically out an iPad until i get this sent back and replaced with one that works if I can't find a fix.
