    Hi,

    I went through the tutorial here:
    http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=137683

    Everything seems to have gone okay, no error messages or anything.

    After doing the last step, once the recovery from the custom ipsw is finished, I am left with a rather empty device.

    I don't see Cydia or anything new that I should have. It's as if I had a brand new touch.
    Am I missing something here ? I've tried re-creating a custom IPSW and made sure Cydia was part of the package.

    I am not too sure what I should do, anyone know ?

    Are you sure you did the IPSW thing right? Try downloading a custom one already patched etc.

    I would upload the custom 2.2.1 with cydia in but my upload speed is 20kb/s :O

    I'm sure someone else will have already uploaded it though.

    If someone can point me in the direction of a custom 2.2.1 that has worked that'd be awesome, I have no idea why the one I made won't work.

    Well, what I've found so far:
    - When you dezip the custom IPSW, you get the file: 018-4491-11.dmg
    - In that file, you have a folder called Applications where you see all usual apps
    - Cydia is not there (I am guessing it should be)

    I don't know if this can help..

    I am trying to figure out how to make a IPSW file with Cydia in it right now.. I don't get why PwnageTool doesn't put it in.

    The thing is, it put it in the first time I jb'ed. Than I tried to add openssh to the ipsw, and now I can't even get cydia alone to install.
