I've got pc (window vista which it sucks) and you mean my iTunes is in the latest version? If so, nope, i haven't done the latest update.

This WORKS. Restore the phone to factory default, re-run the Evasi0n tool and voila! No more install disappearing and no Cydia showing up. Worked like a charm. Thanks for the advice!!!

Patwatson , did you Settings-> General -> Reset -> Reset All Settings or did you do Erase All Content and Settings ? Just trying to find the exact options.

Neither; I did the "Restore iPhone" from the iTunes screen. That does the same thing (and more) than going into the phone and erasing the settings by hand. I tried that early on, and tried reinstalling evasi0n and it didn't work. Doing the restore to factory defaults from the iTunes interface and then running evasi0n worked the first time.
