    am not a noob when it comes to fixing my iphone but i have no idea on this one...

    i have a iphone 3g on 4.1 jailbroken with redsnow

    the issue is 50% of the time when i got o play a song/podcast the magic app with freeze/crash so i gotta click home button to close and it will do this til i reboot

    also my settings app 50% of the time it opens fine and the rest of the time it opens and is blank unless i reboot

    then when i reboot it will either take up to 5mins to boot or go into a infinity loop where i use ireb to get it back

    this happens everyday

    i dont have many things installed and what i do have ive had before and their fine

    i do have game center installed thats new

    ive tryed restoring alot of times
    removing packages i think it could be
    setting up as a new phone
    but nothing seems to work

    anyone know the problem?

    Redsn0w is buggy. I encountered various bugs when I had it on my iPod Touch on 4.1. Restore and jailbreak instead with greenpois0n or limera1n. It's a lot smoother.

    Also note: IF you need an unlock (T-Mobile, non-authorized carrier) ---- use PwnageTool to preserve your baseband/unlock.

    Even if you don't need it, preserving the baseband is always a good idea because when you resell your phone, it can be more easily unlocked.

    Nevermind .... I just re-read your post and noticed you already updated to 4.1 w/Redsn0w. Ugg

    Ahh I forgot it was a 3G. Do you have access to a Mac? Pwnagetool works great. There are also some guides on this forum to get pwned firmware to work on Windows. It's worth a shot!

    just used the new redsnow beta 2 and it seems to be working fine now

    beta2 uses the limera1n exploit so it problem was beta 1

    You'll wanna consider using Sn0wnbreeze if redsn0w is giving you problems. That is your only alternative unless you have a Mac and can use PwnageTool.
