    Hey, This is for all of the Cydia problems:
    Copied from another forum

    Identify the Problem:

    This is probably a good place to start ... follow the steps to see if you can determine the problem with your Cydia:

    Quote:
    1) Open Terminal on the device or through SSH.
    2) Type the following:

    su
    alpine
    apt-get update

    3) Read the error message.
    Sometimes just running the update command will fix the issue!


    Cydia Crash on Load:

    Quote:
    1) SSH into your device.
    2) Navigate to the /var/lib/apt/lists/ folder.
    3) Delete everything EXCEPT the partial folder.
    4) Reboot.


    Cydia Won't Add a Repo:

    There are very few possible explanations, here are a few:
    1) The repo is down, check the forums for more information.
    2) You typed it wrong, many people forget to put the / at the end of a repo url.
    3) You aren't connect to a network ... pretty self explanatory.


    Source Error:

    A common error message would be Bzip2 error or the fact that a source is not functioning correctly.

    IF A REPO ONLY ACCEPTS ONE DEVICE PER ACCOUNT YOU WILL GET THIS MESSAGE IF YOU ADD MORE THAN ONE DEVICE (our repo is like this)

    If you cannot remove the source from Cydia or the problem persists, try this:

    Quote:
    1) SSH into your device.
    2) Navigate to the /etc/apt/ folder.
    3) Backup the cydia.list OR sources.list.d file.
    4) Edit the cydia.list OR sources.list.d file with a text editor and remove the entry related to the problematic source.
    5) Reboot.
    Crash After "Reloading Data":

    If Cydia is crashing after the Reloading Data message then try this:
    (If you don't have terminal installed, use terminal through SSH)

    Quote:
    1) Open Mobile Terminal/Terminal via SSH.
    2) Type:

    su
    alpine
    dpkg --configure -a

    3) Reboot.
    I am unsure that this is a valid fix but if you try it let me know the outcome please.

    You should really cite your sources.

    (a.k.a. post the link of the forum post where you got this)

    Funny, because the solution for the bzip2 error sounds remarkably similar to my lengthy tutorial. A little bit of credit would be appreciated...
