    so I installed green poison and cydia downloaded and when it was done installing the icon is only half a cydia icon, and now when i launch cydia it just bombs right after i click the icon.... ideas? It won't let me redownload it as it says it's already downloaded.

    My icon was fine after installing Cydia, but Cydia would not launch and exhibited the same crash you describe. I did another restore and jailbreak and am now downloading Cydia again to see if it works.

    Cydia is slammed with installs.
    Grab a fresh deb online and install it yourself. i imagine it will corrupt/fail 9/10 times this time

    How do you propose to install a deb without SSH access? :)

    Exactly.
    Either do that or wait a little for the initial rush of new JB and cydia downloads to die down.

    Well now you have root access because of jailbreak.
    Terminal it up and use iFunbox right?

    I'm not familiar. How would I connect to it and get the deb on it without SSH access?

    he says to install tethered jb over it (redsn0w). (NOT MONTE JAILBREAK)

    I used redsnow 0.9.6b4 and it totally screwed me up. I selected INSTALL CYDIA ONLY and it totally re-jb'd my device using tethered JB... dohh back to square one... not a solution... unless I'm doing something wrong...

    No, use this version instead:

    (bottom of the post)


    After download, run the redsn0w and then just select install Cydia. Then run GP if you didn't jailbreak with GP yet.

    When I do this it says wrong firmware bundle selected, there's no option to just install cydia.

    EDIT- I think I'm downloading the wrong thing... am I supposed to be downloading "redsn0w_mac_0.9.6rc8" ? If this is so, then i load it, load the IPSW, then check INSTALL CYDIA only right? And this won't re-JB again right? It's still asking me to go into DFU and all that, last time I did that it screwed it up. UGH.

    You ran redsn0w first and greenspois0n over it right? Did GP change the pineapple boot logo to the skull?

    Not really familiar with all of this. What is the IPSW that redsn0w is asking me to browse for and where do I find it? I think I'm finally close just need this to get me over the hump lol.

    I ended up running GP, then to get Cydia I ran the redsn0w. It looked like it was doing the normal JB thing, but since I only did cydia with it, it didn't touch anything else, preserving the GP jailbreak, and the animated skull boot logo.

    Works like a charm now.... spent all night downloading all my cydia packages again... I have a list but it seems to take forever would be so amazing to have an app that reliably (yeah I know pkgbkup and appbackup, but I said reliably,lol) saves all my installed cydia apps somehow, so it's easier to re-install, but oh well, it's done now :)

    IPSW is your firmware file. You can get it here:
