How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hello All,

Looking for some quick help.

Iphone 3Gs that was jailbroken and unlocked using Pwnagetool and Ultrasn0w and had been running 4.3.1 with no problems beyond noticeable battery drain (compared to previous firmware). Today I used Pwnagetool to create custom IPSW for 4.3.3, and included cydia. Standard, simple, clean setup. Restored my phone, and now am able to get on Wifi, but when I enter Cydia I am getting server unavailable messages sometimes, and attempting to install Ultrasn0w gives me an error about mobilesubstrate dependencies not being met.

What's up? Must I rebuild/install using Pwnagetool again??

I am in Europe and use my ATT SIM to activate - this worked fine through iTunes. Now I'm stuck needing to get the unlock so I can use my european provider.

Thanks for your suggestions!

Sometimes when i jailbreak and launch cydia for downloading the apps. Cydia give me errors when i press instal.

What i did is reboot my iPhone and tried again to install.

It works for me

Rebooted a couple of times now, no joy. I get the same errors. Mobilesubstrate version issue, and when I attempt to go to sections of Cydia I am frequently given the network error. All of my other net apps are functional. Can I somehow reinstall Cydia??

I believe there were some issues with Cydia, but the app finally loaded (after many errors) and I was able to successfully install Ultrasn0w as well as my other purchased apps. I believe I must have tried my upgrade during their backup window or something......
