it just started happening. whenever I open an application that I downloaded (angry birds, fring, other games, etc.) the app just flashes for half a second then the screen goes back to its previous state (the folder where I placed the application). i already tried a hard reset but it's still happening.

Are you sure it was a hard reset and not just a reboot? You need to ignore the slide to power off slider for a hard reset. What firmware version are you using? Is your phone jailbroken or unlocked?

I used a hard reboot (the one that i read from your previous thread). phone isn't jailbroken because I just got it 6 months ago. I recently (last sunday) upgraded the software version to 4.3.5, could that be the source of the problem?

Try deleting and reinstalling the apps that are crashing.
