    I finally decided to upgrade to 4.2.1 and use redsn0w to jailbreak. I used the guide from redmondpie and used "redsn0w_win_0.9.6rc8" for the jailbreak. Im jailbroke and was able to restore my packages from PkgBackup. My packages seem to work besides "Rename" and "Booky Folders", If you have a way to fix those let me know but for now I figure they just are not compatible..

    My problem is I can open Cydia and look at Cydia, Sections, and Search tabs. and most of the manage tab. But if I scroll past the first group of packages in the Changes tab, Cydia closes and I'm back to the home screen. Same thing if I look at Manage>Packages.

    I tried 2 reboots (into jailbroken state) but was hoping not to have to Install Cydia again. If I Must install cydia again, will that mean I have to use PkgBackup and restore again? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    There is a newer version of Cydia out. Do you have that version installed? The latest version, unless something has changed, is 1.0.3366-1

    I can't remember where to download the new version so someone else will have to help you out on that one. There is a suspect "Phillipines" version floating out there as well which bumps you up to 1.0.3366-7 I believe. You can use that one at your own risk however some people on here have used it without any incident.

    The only two ways I know how to install it are using iFile or Safari Download Manager.

    For SDM, you would save it somewhere on your phone, and then install it, then respring. I used the iFile method and simply downloaded the deb file, SSH'd it onto my phone, then installed it using iFile, then respring.

    Installation is pretty easy so nothing complicated about it. I'm not sure if there is another way to install the new Cydia or not so maybe someone else can chime in on that.
