    You might get better help if you explain a little bit better. From what i gather, you have a jailbroken 4.2.1 iPhone 3G.

    You say that the tweaks are not working, after a fresh restore. I am assuming you re-jailbroke after the fresh restore, and installed the said tweaks.

    What exactly is not working, (i.e. the phone won't boot, you get a bootloop, airdrop enabler doesn't work)?

    You might check, if it is a specific tweak that is not working, that it is compatible with your device The normal repos, will not let you install a non-compatible tweak in most cases. If you use a less than reputable repo, it may allow you to install an incompatible tweak.

    Keep in mind also, the device and IOS version are really old, so a lot of newer tweaks may not function with that IOS version.

    In of off chance that you did NOT re-jailbreak after your fresh restore, then that would be why your tweaks are not working.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    After a fresh restore you have to JB again and install all the hacks again.
    ios 4 is over 5 years old so many hacks and addons you find on cydia most likely will not work on that old JB ios version.
