Cydia on your desktop?? Which iPhone, what version of iOS?

Ah. You updated to 4.3 in iTunes. Big no-no. If you have 4.2.1 shsh's saved, you can downgrade to 4.2.1. If not, you're stuck at 4.3 and will have to wait for it to be jailbroken.

Forget about greenpois0n and the files on your desktop, you're on 4.3 and it's not jailbreakable yet. Hold home and power down until the screen goes dark and the Apple logo appears, then let go.

No, sorry. If you didn't save them before last Friday, I'm afraid it's too late. Get TinyUmbrella ( and save shsh, see what it lists for you.
