Unable to Launch Cydia after JailBreak
I had an iPhone 3GS iOS4.1 with baseband 05.14.02. As I understood, to jailbreak and unlock, I had to upgrade my iOS to 4.2.1 and my baseband to 06.15.00.
After installing iOS4.2.1, I used RedSnow to Jailbreak my iPhone and upgrade my baseband to 06.15.00 in the hopes of unlocking it. The process seemed to have got completed as I see my baseband upgraded now to 06.15.00 and I also see a Cydia icon.
However, when I try to launch Cydia I am unable to do it. It just flashes for a moment and nothing happens. Can someone help me figure a way around it? Thanks a ton!
This is behavior by design. If you used an old version of redsn0w, your phone has a tethered boot and while the phone will boot itself (until you install a package that hooks into the boot process), you will not be able to run any jailbreak apps until you run redsn0w again and tell it to 'just boot tethered now'.
A solution is to re-jailbreak your device with the latest greenpois0n, that will remove the tethered aspect of the jailbreak.
