cydia disappears while installing with jailbreakme 3.0 on iPhone 4
This seems to be a pretty widespread problem right now- not sure if anyone has figured it out.
While jailbreaking my iphone 4 using jailbreakme.com 3.0, cydia appears on the home screen, passes "loading", but then immediately disappears when "installing" begins. Have tried numerous times and have tried clearing safari cache, cookies, etc as others have suggested. Any fix for this?

Did you try rebooting once it disappears? As far as I remember in the process you're supposed to wait until the loading finishes and then reboot and you should see Cydia. The thing I want to ask is why do this on an iPhone? there are so many other methods that have been out for months now so why do it this way? I can understand on the iPad 2 where this is the only method.

same problem with ipod touch 4g
im gettin the same problem. I had 4.3.1 jailbroken and had some tweaks on my ipod, as well as whatsapp (since its not supported anymore on ipods, i found it useful to have it thanx to the jailbreak)
so i updated to 4.3.3 and went to jailbreakme.com when cydia finishes loading it disappears..
my whatsapp is working, so it means it jailbroke. I rebooted and whatsapp stops working.. i have to go again to jailbreakme and jailbreak. Cydia doesnt appear but whatsapp works again.. so i guess im half jailbroken?
will try tomorrow or in a few days..

Same issue here
I have been trying to jb my iPhone 4 (4.3.3)all day with no luck, disappearing cydia and I've seen the invalid checksum msg a couple times. For the hell of it I tried to jb my iPad also 4.3.3 and it worked like a charm the first time. All I really want on my iPhone is to FaceTime over 3G, software updates have removed every other reason for me

I have tried several times with e same results - cydia disappearing wyile installing. I am bummed since i now have lost MYWI which is why i wNted to jailbreK in the first place. I sent an email to the developer as indicAted on the OOPS page. Rebooting did nothing and i havent heard back from the developer. My homescreen is locked. Would that cause this problem? Obviously it is working for a lot of people.

@ivango i restored from a previous backup
@joe_g that could be it, i had very little free space on mine as well
I ended up starting over with a fresh install and using sn0wbreeze. tried using a backup app to save all my tweaks and stuff but I messed it up/couldn't get it to work. Trying to remember everything I had now, lol.
