    Whenever I jailbreak my iPhone 4 with redsnow its fine. But after installing any app on Cydia that says to reboot the device, I get stuck on the Apple logo on boot and it will never boot up causing me to reformat yet again through Itunes. Anyone know a fix?

    Please read and search before posting... That is NOT an issue, It is working as intended.

    Current Jailbreak is a Tethered Jailbreak, you need to re-run redsn0w every time you reboot, use the "boot tether for now" option.

    *Facepalm*

    That is why it is called a tethered jailbreak

    But if I do that redsnow wont work to boot as tethered because you have to turn the device off before using it and you cant turn off the phone if it is stuck on the Apple logo...

    What the **** did you think tethered jailbreak means?

    DFU MODE.

    So pretty much after I press reboot device after installing a Cydia app, then I am stuck at the apple logo which is fine.

    Just load up redsn0w and boot into tethered mode and it will boot back up again correct?
