    i have to days trying to make cydia works...

    it worked at first when i jailbreaked my ipod to 2.0

    but since yesterday it crashes at the very starts and
    returns to the springboard.

    so... i looked for fixes and i tried to delete it and install
    it again with ssh...

    didnt work.

    i tried to use commands with winscp

    apt-get remove cydia and that sh*t...

    didnt work

    ive tried using mobile terminal to remove it

    didnt work

    its says this


    E:could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (35 resource temporarily unavailable)
    E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?

    PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS..

    Doesn't work. Cydia AND it's dependencies need to be uninstalled, and it could take hours to find all those files via SSH.

    Are you sure you logged in as root before you tried apt-get remove cydia, and that you are connected solidly to WiFi?

    Edit: SSH in and rename /var/lib/dpkg/lock to lock.bak, and then reboot and rename it back to lock after it turns on. Then run MobileTerminal and enter the commands again.

    Cydia as i've heard is required to allow 2.0 to run properly as Jailbroken

    Just reinstall for f*** sake, in the time you spent pissing around you could have just reinstalled your custom firmware and got all your apps back on.
