Rejailbreak with GP if you haven't already, then run Redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 over the top and just select 'install Cydia' only.

Just open the loader app and select to remove it, don't install Cydia from it before or after Redsn0w.

My bad lol, you need to be updated to 4.2.1 and latest itunes for Redsn0w
