    sounds like the install is damaged.
    I would download Blackra1n and install cydia over again.

    If you pay attention to the firmware of the device it's 3.1.3 which is not compatible with blackra1n.

    First of all what model iPhone do you have?

    I have the 3G not 3Gs. My firmware is 3.1.3
    Cydia worked great for weeks and then started this. I did reboots etc but no help.

    I assume since you're on 3.1.3 you are just jailbroken and not unlocked. If this is the case just restore to 3.1.3 in iTunes then use redsn0w which you can find in our download section to rejailbreak. After it's done be sure to set the phone up as a new profile in iTunes, not a back-up.

    Yes I have jailbroken it, no need to do the unlock personally. I have redsn0w, that is how I did the jailbreak. So does that mean I will lose all of the Cydia and Winterboard stuff I have set up now?

    Yes you will have to manually re-install everything. But it's the only way to get rid of whatever has messed up Cydia.

    I'm in the same boat and I even d/led a fresh package. Is there no other way into the phone because even the latest d/l has a copy of Cydia that is way out of date and needs critical updates

    Cool How can Cydia Open Without Jailbreaking Again?
    I m running on 3.0, recently downloaded some Apps from Cydia, then at some point Cydia just wouldnt open anymore. Some guys suggested I upgrade to 3.1.2 to be able to download Cydia again after another jailbreak. Will lose all my Apps and all? I got the Evolution OS2 and th LockInfo, bought for some good bucks, will I lose them if I upgrade?
    I'm new, dont know whee to get support. Thanks for hearing me out.
