White Cydia Icon after tethered boot
So.. time for the helper, to be the helpee :P
Fresh install of iOS 5
Redsn0w 0.9.9 b6
Windows 7 x64
Whatever the latest version of iTunes is
White Cydia icon - unable to load cydia, instantly crashes back to the springboard. This was a fresh install of iOS 5, with no backup restored (setup as new device).
I loaded Redsnow up under admin privileges, pushed the Jailbreak button, and told it to install Cydia. DFU'ed the phone, and it did it's thing, successfully. Saw the verbose mode and pineapple icon, rebooted after it was all said and done. White cydia icon.. boourns..
So, read up on it - MuscleNerd says it's because I'm a nub and didn't "Just Boot" after the Jailbreak, so I restarted, DFU'ed the phone again, and hit the extras button in Redsnow, Just Boot button, unchecked the install Cydia box, and hit go. It attempted to re-jailbreak by "Exploiting with Limerain", but the phone booted into springboard before it could finish its game.
Now, no matter how many times I reboot, DFU mode or restore mode, it refuses to "Just boot" properly, allowing me access to my tethered JB Cydia.app
