I am having trouble getting parts of cydia to install properly and p0sixspwn is not installing. The phone was jailbroken using the latter. Also, I'm trying to recover my clipboard history by adding action menu plus and now it's disappeared. I first had the basic action menu but it wasn't fully installed correctly and I need to get to my history ASAP please. When Cydia does try to load things it just gets stuck loading and I have to reboot and I'm not getting very far. Please help. I'm new to this and I'm not sure if there's things missing in the background I was supposed to add first.. I tried to add ifile cuz it seemed I needed that too but got nowhere... :(:(:( want to get this done now!! Been days getting this far! I'm so close. I just want the second last thing I copied!

I don't understand: Why are you trying to install p0sixspwn when it was jailbroken with it? State your device and iOS version.

I have iPhone 4 iOS 6.1.3 it's clearly jail broken but I can't get Cydia to work properly. Now Cydia installer and p0sixspwn weren't installing. Now for some reason those have disappeared an I'm getting error code 2 and can't seem to load or update anything. It just gets stuck loading or I get the error message or it tells me to restart but then nothing is done still.

So restore it and re-jailbreak.

Cydia appears to be working other than error 2 now. So most things I can't install. I'm trying to avoid restoring as I can't use the version from snowbreeze and I don't want the other one I have. I have IExplorer on my Windows 7x64 now and I'm trying to figure out if I can edit files in there and restore Cydia that way?

What do you mean by "I can't use the version from snowbreeze?" You can do exactly that, and it's what I'd recommend doing, as you can troubleshoot cydia for days and probably still be stuck, whereas you can restore to iOS 6.1.3 with Snowbreeze (iFaith mode) in about 30 minutes and be done.

snowbreeze is what I used to get my IPSW and was unable to restore my iPhone with it through iTunes. I tried using it through redsnow and it didn't work. I'm not familiar with iFaith. If it works with snowbreeze ipsw it should take my phone to how it was when I first got the ipsw and my phone would not be jailbroken?

Redsn0w will not work, so don't bother trying it. What you need to do is downgrade iTunes to version 11.0 and no later, then Sn0wbreeze will work. Any iTunes 11.0.x will work, but not 11.1 or newer. Get it here.
