How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hi, I have an iPhone 3g with iOS 4.2.1, jailbroken with redsnow for Windows v.0.9.15b3, on which i can't use Quickdo because it depends on Cydia substrate to work (It's the latest version, 0.9.5016). When I install Cydia substrate, I have a problem: After installing it, when I turn the iphone off and turn it on again, or restart the phone, it gets stuck in boot logo (the apple icon) and doesn't load IOS. I would like very much to use Quickdo, but because of this problem i had put the iPhone in safe mode to uninstall Cydia substrate and then I cannot use Quickdo for lack of it, and after uninstalling Cydia substrate, the iPhone boots normally. Could someone help me with this issue, please? Thanks, Marcia

You can use an older version of mobile substrate that works for you by downloading here using safari and installing using iFile.

Thank you very much justinred. I downloaded and installed an older version of Cydia substrate (version 0.9.2996-1), and it has solved the problem
