IOS 5 Update - Not possible to recover Purchased apps after having changed the country of origin

All
I am currently struggling to restore my apps that I have purchased on my iPhone 4. I can see my purchase history but here is the problem: The majority of the apps were purchased when my iTunes account was still linked to my German bank account/Region. I have changed the region and payment details when in relocated to the UK. The question is now how can I restore my apps made while my account was linked to my German details? I already tried to restore my payment information and region but no luck so far.
Can anybody assist me with this problem? Any input would be much appreciated.
Thanks!

@shadow221, unfortunately that method only retured my previously backedup photos and nothing else. After attempting restoring it back to a few Backups with failed attempts, I just gave up. 
Some users mentioned doing a complete restore to factory setting and do a backup but it just screwed with my ipod and no music back.  So i just let it be.  I reloaded my old tracks from iTunes, my Apps, unfortunately iTunes doesnt give me any option to reload any of my videos FML.
I did the above and wasted a good day and a half of my life reloading (on my pc) 300 songs, now I only have 1,200+ more to download to match my previous library contents.  Thanks Apple.
PS: i called Apple a week before the iOS 5 release and an associate explained that it will NOT delete my library if I do the update---thanks much for the warning!!!

  • Can I still use/sync/update my purchased apps if I change the country of my iTunes Store account for good? (PH-US)

    I'm planning to change the country of my iTunes Store account from the Philippine Store to the US. If I do, is it still possible for me to sync and update my apps purchased from the PH iTunes Store? And will I still be able to purchase in-app purchases?
    Thanks!

    You can't change countries if you have a credit on your account - if you can't spend it then you can try contacting iTunes Support and ask them if they can remove the balance so that you can do so : http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/contact/ - click on Contact iTunes Store Support on the right-hand side of the page, then Purchases, Billing & Redemption

  • How to recover purchased apps after changing an Apple ID?

    So I changed my apple id because my current email address is not working anymore on Yahoo. The next day when I checked for some updated on my apps, I found out that my deleted apps under "Not on this iPod" button are missing! And so I checked the store for my recent purchase and it has price. So it means I have to pay for them again to download! Anyone please help me how to recover them all!

    Despite the fact that your old email doesn't work doesn't work anymore, the Apple ID still does.  Log out and back in again with the old ID and downlload the apps.  When finished, log out/in again to get back to your new ID.
    These apps should sync to iTunes on your computer.  If they do not, do the same log out/in in iTunes to retrieve the apps and store them on your computer.
    The Sync function is totally independent of which ID was used to obtain the apps, music, movies, etc.  The only time that you will care is when you need to update the app.  If you choose to do it from iTunes, you must again log out/in to update.  However, the iPod handles that for you and all you'll need is the correct password.

  • How to redownload purchased app if you change the store countries?

    I have recently switched from Thai iTunes store to U.S. Tunes store. however, I'm unable to download the app that have been purchased from the past.

    Not if you have all your apps in your iTunes Library. When I am in Canada I have disk with all of my files and data, otherwise I would have to switch to a Canadian iTunes account and Apple ID. Doing that requires a Canadian bank account and credit card with a Canadian billing and shipping address. So, I make it a point to take mine along for the trip.

    restoring purchased apps after software update through itunes

    And....that's your question? How to restore the apps? Sync your iPad with iTunes and the apps should be restored to your device. Or go to the purchased tab of the App Store and tap on Not on this iPad and download them again.
    Did you restore from a backup after you updated? Can you provide any information at all?

    Apps are always tied to the ID that was used to purchase them originally. Did you try entering your old password and see if that works?
    If you need to sign out of your old account go to Settings>Store>Tap on your ID and sign out. Sign in with the new one.
    you can also access your ID in the featured tab of the App Store. Swipe to the bottom of the screen and you will find it there as well.

  • I set up Raid on my Mac Mini Server and lost my Server software. It is not listed in my "purchased" apps. How can I get it w/o having to purchase it? Will my serial

    I set up Raid on my Mac Mini Server and lost my Server software. It is not listed in my "purchased" apps. How can I get it w/o having to purchase it? Will my serial # be enough to show it is a mini server and under warrantee be enough to get it back?

    If it's not listed in Purchases, check that it's hidden, and if so, unhide it > http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4928 After that, go to Purchases and download OS X Server.
    If you can't download it, contact with the Mac App Store support > http://www.apple.com/support/mac/app-store/contact

    I've made a silly error and not renewed my iOS Developer Membership.
    Consequently my iPhone app has disappeared from the store.
    I've just renewed my membership.
    Will my iPhone app re-appear in the store?
    Or will I have to re-submit.
    Anyone else done anything equally stupid?
    If so then any advice welcome.
    Cheers
