    i have a problem from cydia, but to reduce my typing, i'm gonna quote the question i posted on yahoo answers:


    "i have cydia on my ipod touch, and it was working perfectly. i installed the 'all sources' package, and now whenever i try updating, or removing the sources/source packages, it takes forever, and always gets stuck at 'Downloading Packages'. i get errors before that also like 'host unreachable' 'ret error' 'posiox error'. i tried removing the 'all sources' source package, and it doesn't work! i also removed the steffwiz repo, still takes forever. i've removed, and reinstalled cydia, still doesn't work!!!!!!! i have tried removing cydia, then rejailbreaking. still doesn't work!!!!!!!!!!!! ANY HELP AT ALL?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!"

    If you have too many sources of course it's gonna take forever.

    I think you can remove the sources via ssh, but I don't know the folder.
