    Every time I open up Cydia i get this msg:

    Error: Datebase
    Unable to parse package file /var/lib/lists/apt.modmyi.com_dist_stable_release (1)

    And this just started happening today and the last thing i installed was qTweeter (but that was yesterday) and it just started today >.< Can anyone help me out?

    Nothing shows up in cydia, no packages, sources.. I rebooted and resprung and nothing

    Uninstall qTweeter. If you have to, use WinSCP and uninstall using Terminal (ctrl+T).

    I uninstalled qTweeter using Rock, then it gave the soft restart prompt. After i resprung i went back into Cydia and the problem was still there..

    Reinstalling Cydia via Rock worked for me when I had a problem like that.

    It also bumped my Ram speed from averaging between 30-40 to about 50 after freeing memory.. Thanks for all the help i guess d:

    @mikeac i had no idea you could install Cydia through Rock..

    Neither do I. It's more secure while installing and can background while installing too, sure. But Rock can load while you manage, save backups (that have helped me numerous times), has a secure interface... beats Cydia indefinitely.


    In Rock, reinstall "Cydia Installer" or whatever it was.
