    Installed the mobile substrate update and now stuck in a boot loop. Well so much for going to bed. My pillow is calling but I need an alarm clock.

    This is why I wouldn't bother with the 4.3 JB right now. When it all gets worked out officially then I'll join up. OP I hope you get your phone working

    This was just an update in cydia. I like to wait like you do ipheiria. Blink same thing here. I ended up passing out in the lazy boy setting it up. It was somewhere around three and four am.

    Yeah it was one of my obscure sources. There is one i use that is the only one that still carries imobilecinema. I think that it got a beta version of the new mobile substrate. I just hit update without looking at where it was from and that got me into the boot loop. I ended up restoring and didn't have a copy of my PKG backup so had to figure out everything that I had on it. After I restored I saw the tab on iReb to resolve the boot loop. I found another way on a site that has a python based program that you drop an ipsw on top of it and it creates an update file so that you won't lose your programs and stuff. I didn't use it as I wanted to make sure that I kept the same baseband and it was late so i didn't look for the tiny umbrella guide to keep the base band the same. Ended up using snowbreeze to keep the baseband and then ran GP over to get cydia installed. If you want that site for the program to create an upgrade ipsw let me know. I am good to go now though it has been a long day.
