    Code:
    dpkg: parse error, in file '/var/lib/dpkg/status' near
    line 26 package 'firmware':
    duplicate value for user-defined field 'Name'
    I cannot install anything else via Cydia. Ant help very much appreciated

    If you used redsn0w 0.7.2. Don't select icy aswell as cydia. Icy screws up cydia so you get that message.
