    Right so I managed to update to 3.0 and jailbreak it using redsnow.

    I've loaded "Cydia" and it says there are some essential upgrades. I think okay lets upgrade....

    upgrades are for "Cydia Installer" & "Debian Packager"

    select upgrade on the installer and I get the following error in a little box:
    - Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)

    The black screen with the dos style screen says:
    dpkg: pasre error, in file '/var/lib/dpkg/status' near
    line 26 package 'firmware'
    duplicate value for user-defined field 'Name'

    so I select okay. Try again and the same thing happens... can anyone help?

    I'm not able to install any cydia/icy progs at all...

    Any help would be great. Thanks Michael

    I am wondering if you installed for Cydia and Icy
    I was getting the same error you were, but later (after installing some things thru/for Icy) started getting"

    "Couldn't configure pre-depend dpkg for ncurses, probably a depencency cycle."

    I am going to try to re-run redsnOw without Icy
    I'll repost with the result.

    It worked for me.
    I got this idea from reading responses to other problems at another site.

    I simply ran redsnOw again, but didn't check to add Icy.
    when all was reloaded... Cydia works. and I still apear to have icy too.

    Hope this helped you.

    EDIT: yes!!! I have SBSettings back.
    Thankyou to some user called MESS from the MACRUMORS forum
    and to all the guys who made redsnow and sbsettings and to the DEVteam

    its true, i just jailbroke and added ICY before, but i kept gettin the same error, so i did the jailbreak again in redsn0w and didnt choose to include ICY and now everything is workin fine

    Just wanted to say thank you for the workaround. I also got cydia working by selecting only cydia while jailbreaking.

    You could post your own thread instead of digging up (necroing) a 2 year old thread...
