Loader is buggy. Install cydia via redsn0w. Detailed instructions here.

Loader from greenpois0n is very buggy. Get a copy of the 4.2.1 firmware, go into the latest redsn0w, open it, select the IPSW of the firmware, then click install Cydia, that will take care of your problems friend. Have a happy time tweaking!

Can you stick to one thread? You're confusing enough in just one.
