I have an iPhone 4 (CDMA), bought it to India and unlocked unofficially by jailbreaking.

Recently I upgraded to iOS 6.1.2, and now Cydia is missing. Everything else is working fine; I can make calls, use internet and Wi-Fi, however is gone from my phone.

How can I install Cydia again? I am afraid of Jailbreaking my iPhone again in case it will lock the phone again. Is there a method of installing Cydia back without reverting the unlock?

Sandeep, what version of iOS were you running before you upgraded? How did you upgrade? Through iTunes, or Over The Air (iPhone Settings > General > Software Update)? – Josh Hunt Jun 1 '13 at 7:53
