Cydia Jailbreak Question
Hi Guys and Girls
So long story short I successfully managed to jailbreak my phone using RedSnow (and a guide).
Im using an IPhone 4 on IOS 5.0.1 so I am stuck using Tethered which isnt a huge biggy.
I ran Cydia and somehow let it download essential operating files (I presume a bit like a computer does?)
It then flashed up saying it needed to reboot so I clicked yes thinking I could just boot it from DFU mode again. This failed and I got it stuck recovery mode. Redsnow wouldn't just boot and kept trying to jailbreak it again. I did manage to get the phone back by restoring via iTunes.
1) did I do anything wrong ? I have since learned that I should have pointed Redsnow and the ISPW 5.0 again
2) ignoring the fact I've restored my phone via ITunes. If I had managed to get it back via justboot would the "essential" Cydia updates still be installed??
Cheers guys im planning to give it another bash on the weekend 😊

The "essential" update is in fact ESSENTIAL!!!
That's not where you went wrong.
It's actually quite odd that it didn't reboot the second time... I mean you obviously rebooted tethered to get to cydia... Did you install any other packages?? Or just the essential upgrade???...

Right I managed to jailbreak and then put the phone back into DFU mode. I tried to justboot however it when I put it into DFU mode, select the ISPW then go through the justboot.
It gets to mostly done before it pops up unrecognised build. However the phone starts up and I just can't open Cydia.
Any ideas ??
I'm using the most recent version of Redsnow as have literally just jailbroke.
Cheers in advance
