    Hey guys I know this has been posted before but I can't find it. My cydia keeps crashing I heard there is something you can type in mobile terminal and that'll fix it. Any ideas?!!! I REALLY, REALLY,REALLY, don't want to restore.

    is it me or is it not safe to uninstall cydia through a terminal like that especially if he has too many dependencies...

    had you recently added any new sources before the crash?

    And did you try apt-get update and did it give any errors?

    but it will create new symlinks which will change the location of even newer items and can cause even more problems in the future...
