Need help with re-jailbreaking 3GS 4.0.2
I got a secondhand iPhone 3GS which was already jailbroken with Cydia. However, whenever I tried to open Cydia, it would close immediately. Now the icon has completely disappeared and I cannot find Cydia at all on the iPhone using the search function.
The phone is on the 4.0.2 operating system.
I am using Windows.
How do I get the Cydia icon back? Do I need to re-jailbreak the phone, if so how do I go about this?
Please help! Thanks

Download tinyumbrella and request the 4.0.1 SHSH hash from Cydia.
If it can't retrieve one, then it was not saved within timeframe Apple was still signing it. Thus, you won't be able to restore to 4.0.1. You are stuck at 4.0.2 and NO JB possible.
If you can retrieve your hash, put tinyumbrella into TSS server mode and restore through iTunes with 4.0.1 firmware file you downloaded from somewhere.

And, part about: UPDATE 2: And now iPhone 3GS has been successfully jailbroken on iOS 4.0.2. More info on this can be found here.
The 3GS must be pwned to install custom firmware 4.0.2 from Sn0wbreeze or pwnagetool. Do you even know what that means to be pwned and how to stay pwned? If you do, you would realize the OP's iphone is no longer pwned.
What do I do with the firmware file? Do I open it with iTunes?
I also tried running the TSS server in TinyUmbrella and it's been sitting there for a while.
I'm just not sure what I'm supposed to do now that I have the firmware.
