How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have a iTouch 4G. My problems:

-I jailbreaked with limera1n. No limerain icon. -restored -I jailbreak with greenpois0n. No icon. -I used redsn0w to only "install cydia". Cydia appears in white, and not open. -Rebooted -Cydia not open, white icon.

Whi? How to make a successful jailbreak?

The solution:

-Jailbreak tethered with redsn0w. -Terethed boot whit redsn0w -Update cydia -Apply greenpois0n.

And the untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 on iTouch 4G Works fine!

after installing cydia using redsn0w, you have to boot tether it using redsn0w. only then Cydia will work.
