Step 3:Place your iPhone 4, or iPod touch, etc. into DFU mode.
Step 4: You should see a lot of scrolling text on your device, and eventually you will be back to your Home screen. You will see a Cydia icon but it will be white. That is because you have to perform a tethered boot.
Step 5: Place your iPhone 4, or iPod touch, etc. back into DFU mode.
Step 6: Click back on redSn0w and select Just boot. This will perform a tethered boot, and once your device returns to its Home screen, you will see a usable Cydia app icon. Open Cydia, and enjoy your jailbreak.
