    Hi, I have an iPhone 3G 8GB running on 3.0 firmware.
    I have a similar problem to what seems to be a common problem; cydia crashes back to the home screen. However, I may seem a bit thick

    but I do not understand any of the language or terms used in some of the available help topics/threads!! I have no idea what redsn0w or icy or anything like that is! All i know is that I have an iPhone!!
    Also...i have had my iPhone unlocked and jailbroken but would not know how to re-jailbreak my phone :S as many people suggest!
    Please please help, it would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks, Kayleigh.

    Ok, first, you should seek some of the many "Beginners Guides" in this forum.

    Try restoring your iphone, and running Redns0w again, redns0w is the program use to jailbreak your iphone.

    It should be fixed after that
