Some Apps can't run after jailbreak

Anyone facing this problem? Some of the applications cannot run on my JB phone but is working on my friends iPhone.

Have they come up with a way to detect JB iPhones?

There's only a handful of apps that have ever actually done this. One that I know of is the Time Warner Cable app.

Most of the time it's just a conflict with whatever tweaks or other things you've installed. Or your device doesnt have enough memory because of those tweaks (especially on iPod touch 4 running iOS 5). I've had problems with Off the Leash and Catan on my iPod Touch 4. Have not found any way to fix them.

Going to reset my Phone

It's now extremely easy for a program to tell if it's being ran on a jailbroken device. More and more developers are adding in those checks as a form of DRM, so there's finally a reason to think twice before jailbreaking.

If it runs on your friend's device and not yours, it's almost certainly due to some kind of configuration on your device. With the thousands of things that can go wrong with a jailbroken device, better get some kind of diagnostic tools to find out exactly what's going wrong.

It happens to me to, sometimes N.O.V.A 3 don't work and some new game don't work that I downloaded. Called "Plushy Warfare".

Hope they make a JB, were they can over-run this.
