Iphone 3G 3.1.2 Restored , Jailbroken & Unlocked with Blackra1n, Cydia Crashing


Hi All,

I have an Iphone 3G with 3.1.2, Modem Firmware 05.11.07, Jailbroken and Unlocked with Blackra1n. I have all SHSH records on Cydia.

My Facebook was crashing for the last week so I restored my phone to the same 3.1.2 Firmware, and then used Blackra1n to unlock and jailbreak.
The Cydia Icon is there and when I ran Cydia the first time it gave this message:

GPG error: http://repo.smxy.org
xena Release: The following signatures were invalid: NODATA 1 NODATA 2
Failed to fetch http://repo.smxy.org/cydia/apt/dists...m/Packages.bz2
Sub Process bzip2 returned an error code (2)
Some Index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.



And now when I run Cydia it closes after showing "Loading Data" for a minute.
Since Cydia is not working, I cannot access files as Open SSH is not yet installed. Also I cannot install Rizwan's patch for Cracked Application as I cannot install AFC2add, and I cannot use any app from Cydia or any cracked app.

I have tried the same restore to 3.1.2 + Blackrain 3 times, the Phone gets unlocked but each time the Cydia has the same problem. After restore Facebook still closes after a few seconds.

What would be the best Solutions. I am thinking of the following

1. Restoring to 3.1.2 again and Jailbreaking with Redsnow, I suppose the cracked Applications can be installed then.

2. I Upgrade the Iphone 3G to 4.0.1. If I plan to do this, what would be the best way to go about this.

I ideally would like to make cydia run on 3.1.2 itself, as it would get slow with 4.0.1

Any help and advice will be really appreciated.

Thanks
Styler

redsn0w it!!

hey, stick to any firmware below IOS 4, best for 3G.

So i would suggest you do a clean restore to 3.1.3 not 3.1.2 .

Use redsn0w 0.9.4 to jailbreak your 3G but use firmware 3.1.2 this time on redsn0w.

Do a complete upgrade of cydia after jailbreak.....this will stabilize your iphone OS and cydia.

enjoy.

Thanks

Just an update.
I Restored to 3.1.2 and then used Redsnow 9.4 to Jailbreak. Evan after this when Cydia is launched the first time the same errors happen. And Any subsequent launches of Cydia simply close after a minute of Loading Data.
But this time I am able to access the phone through cyder 2. With Blackra1n that was also not available.
Any Ideas Anybody ?

Okay I got Cydia working.
After the Restore and Jailbreak with Redsnow 9.4 Cyder 2 was working.
I managed to update the source list on the Iphone 3G 3.1.2 with Cyder 2 and then it Cydia stopped crashing.

BTW after all this I researched on the net and found out that FACEBOOK is crashing for a lot of people with Jailbroken Iphone 3.1.2 . Facebook has acknowledged this, and they say they are working to release an update to resolve the Facebook Crash on Jailbroken Iphones.

So DO NOT restore if your Facebook is crashing, it's a problem with the Facebook App. It will get resolved once Facebook releases an update.
