My Cydia has been deleted for a while. I found this thing thru openappmkt called Cydia Installer. When i open it and follow the directions it takes me to a "slide to jailbreak" screen. If i slide to jailbreak, will this wipe out my phone? I'm jailbroken already and just want my cydia back.

Please note that the OpenAppMkt versions of "Cydia" are fake unauthorized versions of Cydia that won't do what you want. Some of them are just a Web Clip (bookmark/link) to http://cydia.saurik.com/, and some of them are just a Web Clip for http://www.jailbreakme.com/. The one you tried is the JailbreakMe kind.

Unfortunately OpenAppMkt hasn't removed these deceptive listings despite complaints from us. :( A couple of them are even fraudulent, trying to sell Cydia for 99 cents. You can try complaining to OpenAppMkt too if you like - there's a contact link at the bottom of their site.

My brother did it with redsn0w. Will jailbreakme.com/star reset everything?

I deleted it with an SSH program while attempting to reinstall it without rejailbreaking

It says now, "it looks like you are already jailbroken, jailbreaking again may be harmful." What do they mean "harmful'?

I tried to uninstall an application from Cydia but Cydia icon disappeared from my iPhone home screen. How can I restore it back?

@mahmoodhasnain Instead of commenting on this question, please add details to your existing question here: http://www.jailbreakqa.com/questions/110933/cydia-disappeared - make sure to include which kind of iPhone and iOS version you're using, and also include which application you tried to uninstall.

Install this to iFile and you will immediately get cydia back after you respring! Download: http://cache.saurik.com/debs/cydia_1.1.9_iphoneos-arm.deb

When you download it to iFile, you have to open it with "Installer"! After you install this Debian package, respring your device!(Important)

Whew! Finally an answer! Poor guy's been waiting nearly two years! That cydia might not work for him back in 2012 though, but thanks!
