How to fix some mysterious problems.

i Jailbroke my 3rd gen ipod touch on 4.2.1 and everything went smoothly and Loader showed up but no matter how much i restart my ipod or restart Loader, Cydia never shows up. Loader is just blank?

Use Redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 and select to 'install Cydia' only, you will still be untethered after the process, if you need firmware files get them from here

Lol, I feel your pain dude, but when these devs do it for free we gotta take it graciously, I have had 1 little prob that righted itself second time around, apart from that no other probs on several idevices jailbroken with GP.

Right, and how many releases did limerain go through before it stopped bricking most iPhones? If you don't like it, write something better...
