    Its almost impossible to jb 3.12 or 3.13 with a working cydia if jbme.com doesnt do it anymore. Only Spirit can still do it but Spirit cant do 4.0

    I hope the old jailbreakme.com stuff is hosted on a dif website for those that still need the old phones jb'd

    Is that true? It's been a long time since I've been on 3.1.x but I don't remember ever having troubles.
    What about redsn0w, blackra1n, Pwnage Tool? Or LimeRa1n for 4.0? Will none of those really work anymore? I seem to remember 3.1.3 as the only one you'll really get stuck on with Spirit.

    Have you checked out the iClarified Jailbreak Wizard? Maybe it's out of date, but it seems to have a lot more options than jbme.com for those firmwares...

    Limerain only works for 3gs and 4, not sure on pwnage tool I use PC. Blackrain's cydia wont work anymore nor will the redsn0w for 2g phones. Not sure if a redsnow for 3g's work or not anymore. The problem happened when cydia was updated and many older forms of cydia would not work anymore.

    So the old choice was jbme.com or spirit, now its spirit only for 3.12 and 3.13 as far as a 2g goes.

    But if the jailbreak works you should be able to install the new Cydia after the fact I assume. I know I updated to it myself by loading the .deb file onto my phone.

    the cydia will simply crash and never open so no way to update it.

    I should mention too I assumed you were talking about 3G and 3GS phones...I haven't seen a 2G in at least a year or so.

    I don't know if you need to ever open it...I'm talking about updating it manually via SSH, not through the app.

    Check out this method: Tutorial: How to Install the New Cydia for iOS 4.2

    Like I said I used it to update to a newer Cydia but you can find all the Cydia debs here: Index of /cydia/debs/
