3store is unsupported now. It has been replaced with the AppTimeMachine Store in whited00r 6.

Read this solution by user hayate and my reply below it: Re: App market issue

===================

Edited this post to add the content of the link above here:

Thx a lot it7.phoenix, you really helped me :))

Your workaround works perfectly!

This is the process step by step:
1) open ifunbox with the iphone connected to the computer
2) Open the applications folder, path:
    Raw File System -> Applications -> 3store.app
    Raw File System -> Applications -> AppStore.app
    Raw File System -> Applications -> Cydia.app
    Raw File System -> Applications -> App Backup.app

3)Inside every app there's a file called: info.plist
   Copy it to your computer the file, open it with notepad, find the string:

   <key>SBAppTags</key> <array> <string>hidden</string> <string>Cydia</string> </array>

   and delete it.

4) Save the info.plist file and copy and overwrite it inside the app folder in your iphone.
5) Respring your iphone

Cool, thanks to you and to it7.phoenix for sharing your solution with the community!  8)

A suggestion if you are on Windows and maybe it also works on the Mac version: I use the free, ad free and standalone (meaning no install necessary!) iTools and it has a plist editor tool integrated in it.

So with iTools you can skip: "Copy it to your computer the file, open it with notepad..." and "Save the info.plist file and copy and overwrite it inside the app folder in your iphone" and edit the .plist files directly on the phone!

This said you should also use the same iTools to make a backup copy of the files before modifying them, just to be on the safe side in case you mess up things.  ;)

It does not matter if you did the rest of the steps.

Now do this: Hard Reset often solve many problems: hold both Home & Power buttons until the Apple logo appears and let go of the buttons & smell the roses while it is doing it's thing.  :)

No worries, hard reset will not change any of your info, tweaks & apps on the device.

I tried removing the
<key>SBAppTags</key>
   <array>
      <string>hidden</string>
      <string>Cydia</string>
   </array>
For Cydia, App Store and App Backup
After this I did a hard reset
All this did was get Cydia and App Store icons back on SpringBoard
I still can't open Time Machine no matter how much I tap on it

How about a fresh clean whited00r 6 install then?

I just did it, downloaded some apps from App Time Machine and posted this: iPhone 3G > iOS 4.2.1 Stock > Pre-Jailbroken 4.1 > WD 6 Success
