    Somethings messed up with my Cydia. When I try refreshing the sources or whatever its called on the changes screen, no new apps come up. My latest changes are on like Decenber 22nd or something. I even tried reinstalling Cydia. Anyone know whats causing this? I can make a video if this doesnt make any sense.

    Is it possible that there have just been no major changes because all the devs have been enjoying christmas?

    ossible but i doubt it. This isnt the first time its happened. Like it would go a week without being able to update, then there would be like maybe 50 changes one day. Im sure its not updating cause there would be at least a new theme or something. Plus, I've heard of a few new apps that have been released and don't show up for me.

    Same happens to me all you have to do is hit the "refresh" button on the "Changes' tab.

    I had the problem that my last changes were on Dec 2 2009

    so that entry always came first in the Changes tab. Somehow my date settings were messed up and all new changes were listed lower in the list.
    I had to manually edit the file metadata.plist under /private/var/lib/cydia/ and replace the wrong dates.

    I'm having problems with Cydia too... I'm having to use the 'refresh' button on the Changes page to get updates and also Cydia is crashing back to the Springboard while its updating. Tried reinstalling Cydia, used apt-get commands to remove, reinstall, clean and refresh and I'm now about to go and delete all the repos and start again... I haven't the foggiest clue whats wrong

    My date was set on Dec 2 2009, so some of the changes in the file had the date 2009-12-02. I replaced every 2009-12-02 with 2009-01-02.
