How to fix some mysterious problems.

After I jailbroke my iPod 4th generation with redsn0w, it successfully downloaded Cydia. But when I press it, the screen flashes and goes right back to the home screen. I even tried jailbreaking again, but it just did the same thing! I have iOS 5.1, and I used a tethered jailbreak.

you have to boot tethered. Redsn0w>extras>just boot. Why stay on 5.1 when 5.1.1 is untethered??
