The usual fix for an absent loader icon is to run Redsn0w over the top of the Greenpois0n jailbreak and select to install Cydia that what you mean?

You have to select a 4.2.1 ipsw (firmware file) for your idevice, if you haven't got one in your 'iphone software updates' folder (google it's location for your OS), then download one from here

Then that would be down to the way your browser handles files/extensions, are you Mac or PC...... you think you could write in proper english, this is the JailbreakQA and not the 'hood
