    so the new redsn0w_win_0.9.6rc7b was released today or yesterday forgot and for some reason my cydia isnt installing successfully i get a gray square on the home screen.

    so i upgraded from 4.1 to 4.2 stock firmware
    then used redsn0w_win_0.9.6rc7b to install ipad baseband and cydia
    everything goes thru smoothly
    it reboots back up
    and cydia comes out as a gray square as if it wasnt installed succesfully or w/e

    i tried turning off the fone then turning it back on that didnt work
    i then tried the process over and over that didnt work either. i then left out the install ipad baseband option and just checked off the install cydia box and still nothing.

    anyone knows whats going on?

    After you see the grayed out Cydia icon, you then have to boot up your iPhone tethered.

    Sounds like you need to rerun redsn0w and use option "just boot tethered right now"

    Yes, you will always have to to boot in tethered to start up your phone untill a new JB is out.
    Assuming you're using a 3GS with the new bootrom.
