    I have no idea what's wrong, but all the sudden, Cydia won't open on me. It opens, then starts loading, crashes and goes back to the home screen.

    If it helps, Ive recently installed Categories, but removed them (not the program/app) and MakeItMine (which Ive already changed my carrier text back to normal too).

    What's wrong with my iPod/Cydia??
    Help!

    (I've posted this in another section, but I think it was the wrong one, so I decided to post it here. My bad)

    Someone said to use Mobile Terminal to remove and add Cydia, but I don't have it. Isn't the only way of getting it through Cydia?

    Search. There's been like 3 duplicate threads about the same thing within a day or two ago.

    Using the SSH method, which sources did you remove?

    That happened to me, I just searched for Cydia in Installer. I just installed it through Installer, then rebooted, then opened Cydia, it updated itself, and now it's back to normal!

    I already fixed it, but that's actually a good idea.

    And how would you delete the old Cydia?


    And one more question:
    If I did that, or through Mobile Terminal uninstalled and reinstalled Cydia, would I lose all the stuff I got from Cydia like WinterBoard, and TuneWiki, for example?
    And because of the method I used to fix it, would I get my sources back (since I deleted them) ?

    It just overwrites the old one.
    And when I did it, I didn't lose anything, I still had all my sources, Winterboard themes etc.
    The only thing is the packages didn't show up in manage>packages, but it was still installed.

    So how would you uninstall the stuff you installed then, if it didn't show up?

    You would have to delete the files manually through SSH.

    I can still search for it and then modify>remove the packages, it just doesn't show up in manage packages.
