I just jailbreaked my iphone 3GS New Bootrom with GreenPois0n RC6. After the system came up, I opened the loader program and did not find the Cydia package in it. I powered the system off and then on, and then ran the GreenPois0n RC6 again but got the same results. So close, so please help if you can!

Loader has issues. Easy way to install Cydia without effecting your existing jailbreak, works every time:

I ran redsn0w_win_0.9.6rc8 and it completed successfully but when I clicked on the loader icon, I don't see Cydia. Also, when the system rebooted, I did see the GreenPois0n skull so is it Jailbreaked with GreenPois0n still or did the redsn0w just try to install the Cydia as I directed it to?

redsnow installs cydia on your springboard as a separate icon, it won't be in loader. If you don't see cydia, try rebooting.

Hello, You were right! It was on the next screen. Also, the primary reason I wanted to jailbreak my system was that I want to use my iphone as a wireless hot spot for my boys who have 4th gen itouches. Can you tell how I turn this feature on?

Hello, One last question... I'm checking out the ClearSea product (Demo account) which allows me to video conference to a Polycom Video conferencing system from my iphone by entering the IP address of the Polycom Video Conferencing system and connecting via H.323 protocol. Works like Facetime but the ClearSea products acts as a gateway so I can connect to the Polycom via an IP address. Are you aware of a product that is currently out there that will work on my iphone that will do the same thing? I did do a seach on Cydia and didn't see anything.

No idea. You should post it as a new question though, so many more people will see it. ;)

Install Cydia with redsn0w instead.
