I installed gamecenter (from other question) but after I rebooted it, it now does the loading circle with the apple logo in the back. How do I get to use it again?

99% sure you are going to have to restore, unless you are able to ssh into the device and get gamecenter out of there? i am not sure how to do that however, maybe one of the other members can shed some light on whether that is possible or not.............I am pretty sure you should pack your bags for a quick trip to RestoreVille

Did you make a backup of the N82AP.plist?

It's in your possession.

1st thing to do is backup your iPhone using iTunes...

Get into DFU Mode by following this guide, then restore to 4.2.1 and jailbreak using redsn0w 0.9.6rc18

NOTE: Don't restore if you're using ultrasn0w currently/rely on a unlock.
