Hello, I just did the greenpois0n jailbreak on my iPhone 4 and started the loader. When it was 33% it extracted Cydia and installed it saying it was succesful. Now it is an icon that doesn't open! Help please!

Don't worry, have you reboot your device?

If restarting your phone doesn't work: Try re-running greenpois0n, or use redsn0w (from this post) and just 'install cydia'.

Restarting it didn't work. I re-ran the greenpois0n and when I run the loader and try to install Cydia it says 'Cydia has already been installed'.

It would be best if you created your own question. Please include device and firmware details.
