Hi all,

I jailbroke my daughter's 3 generation iPod Touch using Greenpois0n. Everything went well and I got the app that allowed me to install Cydia. However, when I try to launch Cydia, it immediately closes. Has anybody had this happen before?

Thanks

Which version of greenpois0n did you use? There is an updated release, RC6 I think.
You can rerun it over the previous jailbreak. Might be worth a shot to see if that fixes the cydia crash problem.

I used the Rc6 version.

If you still have Loader, try to reinstall Cydia.
Unfortunately I uninstalled loader.

I tried re-running Greenpois0n and it did not help. I also tried to run RedSnow on top and that did not work. When I tried to restore to redo the jailbreak from scratch I started getting iTunes errors.....

I'm using a Windows XP computer BTW.....

I think what iPhonewarrior meant was are you running Greenpois0n as an administrator? Right click, run as admin.

If my XP account is the administrator account then I assume I am running Greenpois0n as an admin....

As RoofMonkey pointed out, you need to right click on the greenpois0n icon and click run as admin...

It has nothing to do with the account you're using.
