Hi, I have an iphone 4 previously loaded with ios 5.0.1 locked but is running on SAM ticket. I saved the ticket and blobs and decided to install ios 6.0.1. i was successful on the installation however, cydia doesnt work and all jailbreaked software would not load like its unjailbreaked. It somehow restarts like an untethered iphone. I tried the redsnow feature (Just Boot) but it stops on error "Missing . plist files". Is it normal for the iphone to restart normally and hacktivated by jailbreak? do I just have to work on getting it booted thetered. Appreciate the response

iP4 6.0.1 is a tethered jailbreak. You need to just boot tethered on every reboot. You need to do redsn0w 9.15b3/extras/select ipsw/browse for predownloaded 6.0 ipsw before doing just boot.

thats what i did. but is it supposed to restart normally even though it was jailbreaked and hacktivated? because My SAM unlock ticket is working and its a locked iphone. its jsut that when you start cydia, it closes right away and i cant install jailbreaked apps.

Cydia closing is normal for a tethered jailbreak that is why you need to do redsn0w just boot tethered for cydia to work. Redsn0w just boot tethered will only work on 6.0.1 if you select 6.0 ipsw first
