    I have all my apps installed on sd card. I used nokia software recovery tool to go back to os 8 so i could install a new update, i took the sd card out of the phone before the recovery, is there a way i can get all my apps back from the sd card without having to download them again from the store?

    Nope you'll have to download them again. When you install an app to the SD card it links it to a unique ID that's set when the phone is set up. Reset the phone the ID is changed, and the link is broken. Stops people swapping SD cards for free apps they haven't paid for...
