I've decided to jailbreak my iPhone 4. So I did. And I installed SiriPort to get siri. And it worked. I don't know why, but my iPhone crashes on startup!(I can only boot it with redsn0w) I don't know if it is siriport or something else! Any kind of help will be appreciated!

This is an interesting problem. So you're always having to "just boot tethered" in redsn0w every time you power-on your iPhone? Does it go into a non-Jailbreak state when it crashes on startup? (I'm not talking about MobileSubstrate Safe Mode, but rather that the Jailbreak doesn't exist until you boot tethered). – Andrew Larsson Sep 16 '12 at 18:58
@andrew Larsson It basically, once it starts up, it restarts springboard and then again and again and after like 5 times, it reboots again and continues to loop – JomanJi Sep 18 '12 at 18:58
What tool did you use to Jailbreak it? It sometimes makes a small difference. – Andrew Larsson Sep 25 '12 at 19:59
@andrew Larsson I just used the latest version of redsn0w like usual! – JomanJi Sep 26 '12 at 13:45
