    The best is 3.0. It's the fastest and the most stable.

    If redsn0w doesn't play nicely, you can always try purplera1n.

    Problems with Cydia can arise if you use the RedSn0w option to install Icy as well. If you did that, restore your phone to 3.0 with iTunes, then use RedSn0w again but don't put Icy on.

    Open Cydia and do all the upgrades.

    If you want Icy, install it from Cydia after doing that.

    You should then find that you do not have problems with installing.
