If Cydia is crashing, it's not installed correctly or there's a problem with the jailbreak. Install Cydia again with redsn0w.

If you can open Cydia, you got past the activation. How did you do that then?

To activate, you need the original SIM the phone is locked to. For hacktivation you need a custom firmware. Currently not supported.
