GreenPois0n for iOS 4.2.1’s Loader do not have cydia, Solution here!

GreenPosi0n untethered Jailbroken, but can’t install Cydia via Loader

I’m not sure about you guys, but after I do the untethered jailbreak with GreenPosi0n for iOS 4.2.1, GreenPois0n’s Loader did not have Cydia. Meaning I can’t install Cydia! So how can you install Cydia after jailbreaking with GreenPosi0n for iOS 4.2.1?

Redsn0w will fix the Cydia Issue on GreenPois0n

The solution is after you have jailbroken with GreenPosi0n, install Cydia with latest Redsn0w 0.9.6! Don’t worry about it as your jailbreak will still be untethered, but you will be able to get Cydia on your iPhone rather than wait for GreenPois0n to update their software, which we don’t know how long they will take.

Steps to jailbreak and install Cydia:

Step 1: Jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch as per previous blog post on Greenposi0n untethered jailbreak.

Step 2: Check if your Loader is working, if you can’t install Cydia with Loader, proceed to Step 3.

Step 3: Download Redsn0w 0.9.6 here

Step 4: Open up Redsn0w, select the ipa for your iDevice.

Step 5: Check on the “Install Cydia” option, and proceed with the jailbreak.

Step 6: After Redsn0w is done, wait for the reboot and there you have Cydia installed, plus have your iPhone untethered Jailbreak.

I have successfully installed Cydia via the steps above, let me know if you face other issue with the new GreenPois0n jailbreak.

    i did the greenpoison jailbreak , also used tiny umbrella to preserve the 1.59.00 baseband. but got stuck after that( asked to connect to itunes to activate) i dont have the original sim or the phonebook sim and cant get a hold of it. but then used redsnow and it worked. got to the main screen. from there i installed ultrasnow so that my SIM could work. now only issue is that i cant find the APN tab to enter the cellular data providers internet settings( GPRS or EDGE) and the network tab responds after about 15 seconds and at times hangs up reboots.. and i hope my phone isnt slower because of the double jailbreak.

      I don't think it will be very much slower, but I do feel slight lag in the double jailbreak. I think it is best to jailbreak with the newly released GreenPosi0n rc6.

So, what do you think ?
