    ok I have iPhone 4 32 gig that is on 4.3.5 and is JB. I installed a bad app in cydia is m guess. because cydia will shut down when installing m ost apps and defianately trying to delete any app. I have restored to 4.3.5 and the jb stays on. it will not delete. I really dont want to update this to 5.0.1. but I cant get the jb to go away. any ideas how to delete the jb or to get cydia to stay open so I can delete the apps to find out which one was bad? Thanks!

    On 4.3.5 you have a tethered JB only!

    You have to use redsn0w to boot tethered.

    Then its fully jailbroken and cydia will work again

    yo i made this tut

    First i wanna give some cred to Applejuiced, he supplied key information.

    Stitched firmwares are useful for restoring an iDevice and staying on the same firmware without the need of backed up shsh blobs


    You will need:
    redsn0w 9.9b8 http://blog.iphone-dev.org/redsn0w-iOS5#idc-cover
    your current firmware that you are on (get it yourself)

    for the examples used i was on a iPhone 4 4.3.5, so your files will look different.

    1.) Open redsn0w 9.9b8, go into Extras > SHSH Blobs > Fetch, hook your device up and follow the on screen instructions. You will get a .plist file (shsh blob) for the current version you are on.

    Should be like this 748769141644-iPhone3,1_4.3.5_8L1

    2.) Go into Extras > SHSH Blobs > Stitch custom .ipsw. For the shsh file needed, point to the .plist file which was created from step 1. For the .ipsw, select the one which you should have downloaded.

    After it has been generated, the file should be something like this
    748769141644_iPhone3,1_4.3.5_8L1_Restore.ipsw

    3.) Go back into redsn0w and go into Extras > Enter PWNED DFU mode. Follow the onscreen instructions.

    4.) Open iTunes, connect your iPod and press restore holding shift (option on mac) and select the .ipsw that was generated by redsn0w

    748769141644_iPhone3,1_4.3.5_8L1_Restore.ipsw

    iTunes will restore your iPod to the firmware it was previously on, but towards the end you will recieve Error (1) and it will be stuck in recovery mode

    5.) Open redsn0w (for the last time ) and go into Extras> Fix Recovery. Follow the onscreen instructions.

    If all these steps are done correctly you will be back on the firmware that you started with, w/o any previous shsh blobs.

    Good Luck

    I know its tethered. that is not the issue. Im having trouble getting cydia to let me delete a bad app. everytime I try cydia closes. there are no other issues.

    ----------

    no custom firmware. Im on a pc

    ----------

    looks interesting........

    You can try starting in safemode, that way you can access cydia without loading all the mobilesubstrate ad-on's.

    That would allow you to delete the bad package in cydia.

    that makes sense, but you can make a custom ipsw with BB preserve via sn0wbreeze or redsn0w

    i'm on 5.01 with bb 1.59.00

    manual is via the link in my previous posting
