    So I Jailbroke my 4S and was messing around with it. I'm using v.3 of Absinthe.

    In the midst of doing so, I turned off the phone because I thought my work email was connecting properly (even though it's just slow sometimes).

    When I turned my phone back on, it had reset to factory defaults and I couldn't access Cydia even though the icon was still there.

    I then opened up iTunes and restored to last night.

    After I restored, I tried plugging back into Absinthe to re-jailbreak....however, it said i was still Jailbroken.

    I looked and all my JB settings and apps were now accessible even though I just restored my phone to a point where it was jailbroken.

    How is this possible?

    So just reading around, it sounds like I'm describing a semi-tethered Jailbreak?

    This is not possible as the JB for the 4S comes only as "untethered", right?

    Okay, so things kind of got back to how they were and I've been having some fun...

    Tonight, I installed "OpenBackup" to backup my JB apps and settings.

    This was the last thing I installed before Cydia stopped opening. Now, I touch the Cydia icon and it will look like it's about to load and then it goes back to the folder that it's in.

    Any advice?

    Do a reboot first. If that doesn't work the old lock button home button hold them down until you see the apple logo.

    I ended up wiping, reinstalling 5.0.1, restore, re-jailbreak.

    I didn't have too much in the JB, so I figured what the hey...
