    Default Cydia doesn't Launch or load after redsn0w 0.8 jailbreak
    I used Redsn0w 0.8 to jailbreak my iPhone 3G OS 3.0. Installed Cydia in the process (skipped ICY as I read somewhere it could cause problems). At first, Cydia was working well. I was able to download and update applications. After a few hrs, Cydia CANNOT LOAD anymore. Press the Cydia icon, the screen goes blank then closes and returns to the iPhone screen. Will appreciate advise how I can make Cydia load again.

    This solution from leroy67 solves the problem. First you have to have iPhonebrowser. Google it and download the file to your computer and install it. Connect your iPhone to your computer and launch the iPhone browser. Now you'll see the contents of your iPhone. go to var/lib/dpkg/updates and delete all files in the update folder.

    You may need to also delete the files in the 'LIST' folder(NOTE: DO NOT DELETE THE FOLDER NAMED 'PARTIAL'. You delete the contents but not the folder. All contents in APT folder must be deleted).


    With the contents in the UPDATES and LIST folder deleted, mine is working fine for a couple of days now.
