    Default I can't open cydia for unlock, please help!
    I have an iphone 2g.

    I have jailbroke it with blackr1n.

    I have been trying to launch cydia but it keeps shutting down.

    I need to get cydia to work correctly so that I can unlock my phone with boot nueter.

    I can not access ssh or terminal, because cydia won't load.

    Please help!

    Also, I have re-jailbroken and reset it with no luck.

    Restore it to 3.1.2 and jailbreak with Redsn0w 0.9.4.

    Or restore it to 3.1.3 and jailbreak with the same Redsn0w listed above. Just have to point at 3.1.2 ipsw in Redsn0w.

    Redsn0w allows a combined jailbreak and unlock for iPhone 2G. So in Redsn0w, be sure to select "Cydia" and "unlock" when prompted. It will auto unlock for you when the jailbreak is done.

    You'll also need bootloader files 3.9 and 4.6. I'll be right back to post a full guide with download links included.

    There you go. All your downloads needed are included on that guide as well as illustrated tutorial on the process
