I tried to jailbreak a 1st gen ipad(gsm) running on 5.1.1 using absinthe 2.0.4. After I finished jailbreaking I tried to open cydia... it said like'preparing file system' then respringed the ipad. Now i dont see cydia anymore... tried spotlight search, it's not finding it either, and when i try to jailbreak again on absinthe, it keeps saying that my device has already been jailbroken. i also tried to jailbreak with redsnow but still I cant see cydia even though the jailbreak went fine.

Just restore to 5.1.1. That's the highest firmware for the 1st gen iPad so don't worry re: losing jailbreak and then re-jailbreak. Simple

If you still need help, just let me know and I will help you. You can either post here or send me a PM.Widget-Weather App Now Available! Also with MyLocation Support!
Check out the thread here - Widget-Weather
To install the Widget-Weather app, just go to Cydia and install. This will also remove MyLocation, as it is built in!
Want to protect your JailBreak! Add this repo http://cydia.myrepospace.com/iLEXiNFO/ & Install "iLEX R.A.T."
It will allow you to bring your phone back to a fresh jailbroken state!
