hello all,

I performed jailbreak on my I-phone 4s iOS 5.0.1 and I accidentally deleted Cydia from my phone.

I am trying to re-install Cydia but till now no luck, i have tried the following: - tried restoring using tinyumbrella however i am getting error 11 while doing so - tried jail breaking again but Cydia does not show up - tried jail breaking using Absinthe (windows) but it says that the phone is already jail broken.

Please help in getting the Cydia installed again.

Thanks,

Unfortunately there is no known solution for this issue. We can only offer notion of prevention for anyone else reading this: if you wish to have a jailbroken iPhone 4S.. do NOT delete Cydia (aka the gateway to all things jailbroken)

I'm not gonna try it to see what happens, but couldn't you connect with SSH and run "apt-get install cydia"?

Unfortunately you cannot reinstall cydia on a jail broken Device. But, you can follow these steps

1 Plug in your device with iTunes

2 click on your Device Name and click on the option "Restore Factory Settings".

This will restore all your settings on your iPhone and eventually will also un-jailbreak it. Then jailbreak it once again

( make sure that your iPhone data is backed up before you restore it!)
