    Hey everyone!

    I had to restore my iphone 3gs and when I went to jailbreak it again cydia does not show up on the springboard.

    - I have restored it back to factory settings (firmware 3.0)
    - Used redsn0w 0.8 (followed the instructions just like last time it was jailbroken)
    - used several 3.0 ipsw
    - and yes i checked the cydia option

    I have done this 6x now and cydia still will not show up on my springboard. I have downloaded redsn0w again, got another 3.0 ipsw and still cydia will not show up on my springboard even though redsn0w indicates that it was successfully jailbroken.

    I have jailbroken the ipod touch with no issues same with my old 3G. I had already jailbroken this 3G S, but i had to wipe it. I am totally stumped as to what the cause of this or where to go from here.

    If anyone has had this problem and or has a solution please let me know what you did...

    Thanks everyone!

    Sounds so easy...............

    ................when you say it quickly ! Actually, redsn0w is easy, I have run it about 100 times now, joined 12 forums like this one, downloaded firmware so many times, read 100's of guides to jail breaking and unlocking, DFU the phone so many times about wore the buttons out, and still can not get a signal ???

    And why, in all those guides, no one mentions activating or SIM card ( in or none )????

    It is 3G iPhone with 3.0, the problem is after redsn0w, go to Cydia, the sources section is blank, absolutely no content, try adding ultrasn0w url and get about 12 proxy errors. I have the proxy in settings, and also enter user name & password for Cydia to kick off, but still no joy, Wi-Fi signal is very strong.

    And while I am here, it surfs fine on Safari, but weather and stocks do not load, why is that? Don't they access via Wi-Fi first?

    Thanks for reading my moan, and maybe replying, John

    @climber514 - Bump this thread up for you, did you solve problem yet? I have a very similar problem and posted the above in a different thread, no responses yet.......... :(
