After Jailbreaking, it goes back to normal?

Hey, I'm new to the forums and I'm not sure if this is the right section, but

Why is it that when I'm done jailbreaking my phone it goes back to the Apple logo?

I run a Windows 7 with a 3G iPhone 3.0.1
I used Redsn0w windows version 0.8.
And I firmware I used with Redsn0w is 3.0 (Using 3.0.1 with Redsn0w doesn't work and I've searched things and they said to use 3.0)

What I did:

I open Redsn0w and chose the correct firmware.
I pressed next and chose to install Cydia.
I put my iPhone in DFU mode.
I clicked next and Redsn0w started to jailbreak my phone.
Redsn0w said I was done and my iPhone said "Downloading Jailbreak Data" (There was also the little swirly loading icon)
I waited about 5 minutes then my iPhone went back to the Apple logo.

I don't know what went wrong. I redid the whole process 3 times.
Yet nothing happened.

Everytime the "Downloading Jailbreak Data" was gone, it didn't go to the pineApple picture. It just went to the Apple logo

You need to make sure you follow the steps properly and 100% perfect or it's not going to jailbreak correctly. Hold the home and power button and go through those 4 steps.

I have an iPhone 4S jailbroken with Absinthe. When my phone reboots I only get the Apple logo. If the Cydia app is there then your iPhone is jailbroken.
If your iPhone is a tethered jailbreak you need to open the program you used to jailbreak and boot tethered.
