    This is for all you guys out there who's screen has cracked on your Iphone or Ipod touch and you can't add sources in Cydia. SSH and go to

    /private/etc/apt/sources.list.d/

    ^ This is the location of your Cydia sources. Now If you have previously added a source through Cydia you will have a file called "cydia.list" and if not then create a new document in notepad and save it as "cydia.list". Here you will add the sources. This is what my cydia.list file looks like

    deb http://repo.halo4iphone.com/ ./
    deb http://www.iphone.org.hk/apt/ ./
    deb http://apt.123Locker.com/ ./
    deb http://mc2.iphoneall.org/ ./
    [REDACTED]

    As you can see it's "deb" then a space followed by the source then another space and "./"
    Simply save the document and put it into the correct folder as showed above and your done.

    Uhh.. You should really delete the last source on this thread... Just edit it out.
