How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hi - first post. iPod Touch 3rd Gen with IOS 4.2.1. Used Greenpois0n RCS6 to JB. Went fine. Used Loader to install Cydia. Cydia is apparently installed but won't run properly. So I seem to be stuck. Touch is working "normally" but I can't load any non-iTunes apps. How do I proceed, please?

Does Cydia open, how is it not running properly?

Cydia seems to start up and goes to black screen for about 5 secs, with the little round "egg timer" icon showing(but not rotating)then crashes out. Every time!

Did it downloaded 100%?, did it intialize system?, wifi working ok?, other than that, if something has corrupted then I guess you will have to restore & re-jailbreak

Thanks. Yes, I'll try that now. I'll use the latest version of RC6. I wonder if the problem was that my Touch is a 64GB with only about 4GB free. I've since removed about 30GB and will retry.
