    Lightbulb iOS2.x + cydia (latest) = insta-crash to SB; reverted to old cydia to fix
    yea yea, I know...I'm running an old version but motto, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. (plus none of the newer ones can do custom boot logos and stuff and I'm running an ol' iPhone 2g; I'll upgrade the OS when I get a new one).

    anyways, I had been working on this for months.
    Many months ago, after Cydia's "essential" upgrades, I noticed that I could no longer start it as it would crash instantly on start up back to the Springboard.

    upon looking at the logs, this is what it dies from:
    2010-07-14 22:55:15.040 Cydia_[532:613] Setting Language: en
    2010-07-14 22:55:24.537 Cydia_[532:613] *** -[WebPreferences setOfflineWebApplicationCacheEnabled:]: unrecognized selector sent to instance 0x406710
    2010-07-14 22:55:24.564 Cydia_[532:613] *** Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSInvalidArgumentException', reason: '*** -[WebPreferences setOfflineWebApplicationCacheEnabled:]: unrecognized selector sent to instance 0x406710'
    2010-07-14 22:55:24.580 Cydia_[532:613] Stack: (
    terminate called after throwing an instance of 'NSException'
    And after using "dpkg --force-all -i" on various different versions, I finally found out that the latest version that actually works is the following:
    go even one rev newer to "cydia_1.0.2946-57_iphoneos-arm.deb" and bam, it crashes.

    I hope this helps someone else.

    I would love to be back on 2.2.1 but I'm not for this very reason.cydia. But my cydia does not crash to the springboard it just says something about a http error and I can't install anything. If you can solve this I will be downgrading asap. Also how did you fix the app incompatability from the AppStore and do all cydia apps work on 2.2.1

    I just never updated the old adage: "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" comes to mind.

    I rarely install apps from the app store anyways and although there are a few apps on cydia that require 3.x or better...the ones I use don't require it.
    besides, the hardware is too slow to really benefit from it anyways. (128MB just ain't enough)

    thanks but do you know anything about the http error? also if you can tell me how to fix that i will restore to 2.2.1 and try to get some of the appstore apps to work on 2.2.1
