Hi, I am a new to jailbreak community, I just jailbroke my iPhone 4 using Redsn0w for iOS 4.3.3. The jailbreaking process finished properly. However, after rebooting my device and launching Cydia it gets stuck on "Preparing Filesystem" screen. I have tried to re-jailbreak several times but no luck. What should I do now? Any suggestions? Thanks.

If you still got the error after re-jailbreaking your iPhone 4, then the only way to fix it is through restoring your iPhone to the latest iPhone firmware – the iOS 4.3.5. I hope that you have saved iOS 4.3.3 SHSH blobs so that you will be able to downgrade your iPhone back to iOS 4.3.3 due to the fact that there’s no untethered jailbreak support available for iOS 4.3.5. The steps on how to downgrade iPhone using TinyUmbrella can be found here.
Got no SHSH blobs? No worries because you can create a signed IPSW file which can be restored o your device through iTunes. You can check this blog post on how to create signed IPSW using iFaith SHSH Blobs Dumper.
