    [How-To]How to fix Cydia if it crashes over and over

    What You Need
    iPhone/iPod
    Cyberduck or WinSCP
    Wi-Fi
    Mac/PC​


    First, you need to download this http://apt.saurik.com/cydia-3.7/debs/cydia_1.0.2953-59_iphoneos-arm.deb
    (rename it to Cydia.deb)

    Then use WinSCP and ssh it into /private/var/tmp then press CTRL + T if you use Cyberduck then you press ALT + CMD + C and then type in
    Then press Execute, then it will say
    When, it says
    You, can now, close WinSCP and then open Cydia on your iPod/iPhone it should work. If this doesn't work I'm sorry you will have to restore and then rejailbreak.

    If you have any problems make a post and I'll try to help.

    I was able to fix Cydia by using Finder. i went in to var/lib/apt/lists. Then i deleted everything but the partial folder. After that is worked and didn't close on startup anymore.

    Wouldn't this just do the same thing rejailbreaking with redsn0w would do?

    Yes, but I made this guide for people that can't rejailbreak for something like a faulty home button, I have a faulty power button. or for people who are just too lazy to rejailbreak. This doesn't take long at all so it's not like this takes a hour to do lol.

    thanks so much for this, it's a lifesaver. especially since the apt-get command wasn't working for me...
