First time jailbreaker, did iPhone4 4.2.1 loaded Cydia, all ok. Ran Cydia and it starts running then logs me out. Type in password again. Thought I got a bad load on Cydia and was going to restore, but the skull & Cydia remain even using a 4 month old backup. Please HELP! Thx, Tim

What exactly are you trying to do? Are you trying to restore to clean 4.2.1, or trying to get Cydia working on a jailbroken device?

If you want to start again, do a fresh Restore of the firmware. Not a data restore of a backup.

But if only Cydia doesn't work, I would try to reinstall Cydia with redsn0w first.
