    Hey guys, is anyone else getting errors like this one -

    "Error: Prepare Archives

    The package index files are corrupted. No Filename: field for package com.bigboss.poof."

    This happens everytime I try to install ANYTHING from cydia, even if it's not from bigboss. Cydia was working fine last night and I plugged my ipod in to sync while I slept. When I woke up this morning my ipod's screen was on springboard and fully lit (which is strange because it usually doesn't do that after a sync. It's usually the battery symbol (but now that I think about it, I did have my settings for it not to lock (because of ssh))), and now when i go into cydia every single package I try to install gives me this error.

    Also, yes I rebooted, resprung, changed package details, and tried cydia in safe mode. At first I thought safe mode was working, but after a little bit it gave me the "size mismatch" error and didn't install.

    Cydia also is occasionally crashing.

    Is cydia just down or is something just happening to me? Thanks in advance

    Install Rock and see if it works properly.

    Nevermind; I'm retarded.

    Try re-jailbreaking?

    Wow, this is weird. I added a random source (halo4iphone or something idk, I just wanted to see if it could add sources) and now everything works just like before. I downloaded the package I wanted (which wasn't even from halo4iphone) and poof, it works!
