If you tap "Update" in the App Store and the app opens instead of updating, this is an Apple bug instead of anything related to your jailbreak.

I tried jailbreaking my iPhone 4 with redsn0w 0.9.15b3. Everything went fine, and I use the correct IPSW. (I'm sure it worked, the pineapple appeared on my screen and did its thing). I then reopened redsn0w, went to extras and again selected the correct IPSW, then pressed Just Boot. Again everything went fine, the pineapple appeared for a minute or so, then it went to the apple logo and has been stuck there for the best part of half an hour! Any ideas folks? Thanks!

Hard reboot by pressing power+home, release on apple. Redo just boot tethered. Select 6.0 ipsw if device is on 6.0.1. Run redsn0w as admin if windoze and disable antivirus.
