    I have iPhone 4 version 4.0.1. I deleted cydia on accident by erasing some packages. I needed to erase packages because my phone was stuck in safe mode after downloading some themes( I think I downloaded old programs that were only for OS 3.)Anyways now my phone is still stuck in safe mode and Cydia is erased from my phone but some of my jailbroken apps are still working in safe mode. I already tried to use the terminal but it did not work. I don't want to lose my jailbreak. My shsh is saved on cydia from when I jail broke it. It's 4.0.1 However I have no idea on what my steps are to get it back. Also I DON'T want my phone to download the new update on iTunes as I know there is no jailbreak available. I'm not the most technical savy individual but I can follow instructions. PLEASE someone help me out and tell me the steps on what to do!!! Please explain as simple as possible....I'm assuming it will have something to do with a restore? Oh will I have to buy all my cydia apps again after the restore?
    Thank you in advance

    No, you won't have to pay again for your Cydia apps.
    Just use tinyumbrella and restore it to 4.0.1 and then jb.

    Ok great! Does that mean I should follow the procedure that's a sticky on how to restore a iPhone? Do I do that process first, and then go on my PC and use Tiny Umbrella with my phone connected to the PC? After all that go back to jailbreakme.com? Please explain! I don't want to screw things up even more! How easy is using tiny umbrella? Is it self explanatory?

    Repost X per day.

    Download and run Tinyumbrella:
    1) Make sure you Iphone is detected.
    2) check "Advanced Options."
    3) In new window, under "Device / Version," select the firmware version you want to restore to.
    4) Click on "Save my SHSH." Pray Cydia has them. If you don't get an error, it has been saved onto your computer.
    5) Repeat to save other firmware hashes if you wish.
    6) Now, click on "Display SHSHs." It should listed all hashes you have saved on your computer and the firmware you can restore with. If it's not there, you can't restore to it.
    7) Start "TSS server," download firmware file somewhere (google) and restore through iTunes with that file.
    8) If you phone get stuck during the restore process, try "Kick out of recovery..."'in Tinyumbrella.
    9) Using safari on the phone, go to jailbreakme.com to JB.

    Generally great instructions, but I wouldn't suggest people install random firmware they found on Google. Much safer to send them to http://theiphonewiki.com/, which is a trusted source of info and will link people to the official apple downloads.

    Thank you all of you for your advice. I am going to attempt this soon. Just 1more really stupid question. Is my first step, number 1 from the tiny umbrella post by Myzhi, or is my first step to to restore it based on the sticky thread thats on the first page of the iphone hack forum? Or are the instructions that were posted to me every step I'll need to have a successful restore.
    Thank you for being so kind!

    Start with running TU like Myzhi said.
    You wont be able to restore it without that running.

    Ok I am currently on step 7. when i clicked start "TSS Server" it just keeps on running with a green line from one end to the next. Its been 10 mins. Should I be doing something while this is happening? Is this when i should click on that link that applejuiced left? I know I'm almost finished just confused at the end. Thanks a million everyone for being so patient with me:)

    Now, go into iTunes and restore with firmware file you downloaded (link Applejuiced provided).

    Ok so I clicked on restore and then clicked on DO NOT backup. Now it says "are you sure you want to restore the iphone to factory settings? All of your media and other data will be erased, and the newest version of iphone software will be installed." I can either click on restore and update or cancel. I will wait till someone confirms that I should click restore and update. I'm just worried because there was no oppertunity to use that file i downloaded that was provided by applejuiced. Thank You hopefully I'm almost finished.

    Make sure you dont update to the latest 4.1 thru itunes.
    You were supposed to hold the shift or option key and click restore.
    Just hitting restore thru itunes will not let you select the 4.0.1 ipsw you donwloaded and will put you in the latest iphone firmware.
    Cancell it and start the whole thing again.

    The shift and option key is on your keyboard bro:D
    You Hold down shift and click restore if you're using windows or hold down option if you're on a Mac.
    You can let it go on and do the backup it doesnt really matter.

    Haha ohh man sorry I'm an idiot. Maybe pain Meds and a shoulder surgery made me a bit slowwwww today. Ok so when I hit shift and restore a pop up box opens....The top field is a look in: and by default it keeps saying "My videos" The next field is File name: which is blank, and the last field is Files of type: which says by default iPod/iPhone/iPad Software files (.ipsw). So I entered the letter A thinking it needs to be named, and when i did and hit open it says: The iphone could not be restored because the firmware s not compatible. Then i hit more info and it says The URL can not be opened. So obviously I entered something wrong at the end maybe the A? I'm using a PC so what would u reccommend? Am I almost finished? I know to repeat all the previous steps once I know how to finish it.

    Where did you downloaded the firmware file to on your computer? When that restore window opens, you need to browse to that location on your computer and select that file. Sorry, but this is pretty basic computer stuff. You might want to get someone more knowledgable to do this.

    I agree.
    If you can't locate where you saved the ipsw and select it you won't get much further.

    Ok i found the file...everything was cool until the halfway point it stopped and said couldnt connect with URL. I used the "kick out of recovery mode option" and that worked. My phone looks like it has been restored everything is simple again. Should i go to jailbreakme.com now or do I need to keep doing all these steps until it completes without an error? Is this common?
