    Hello everyone. Here is my Problem. I jailbroke my phone with the RedSn0w software and installed Cydia. It went flawlessly. Now I cannot keep Cydia open. Everytime I click Cydia to open it, it will act like it is opening and then go to my home screen of my iphone. What do I do from here? I do not want to have to restore my iphone and then re-jailbreak it. Is that my only option or can I uninstall Cydia and then re-install it or something along those lines?

    All help will be MUCH appreciated. Thank you very much!

    This did not work. I would not like to restore my Iphone to how it was before the jailbreak (without Cydia) and then rejailbreak. Anyone have a guide to this. Or I would like to just delete Cydia from the phone to make it factory OS system. Someone please help.....

    You can restore in iTunes and then re-jailbreak, make sure you set it up as a new phone, not syncing from a back up.
    Here is a link to redsn0w for the jailbreak.

    The only way I fixed my problem was I did a complete Restore and then re-jailbroke my Iphone. It sucked but it was the only solution.

    Purchased a original iphone with 3.0 and ran redsnow it did the exact same thing and crashed. I then decided to run Pwnage 3.0 and problem solved no more crashes and it would be nice to know how ssh terminal and ifile could be helpful.
