    I have an Ipod Touch 2g with the 3.0 OS
    I recently deleted Cydia because it was causing some problems with my Ipod Touch. How do I re-install Cydia onto my Ipod Touch? All Cydia Applications have also been deleted, that means I do NOT have Terminal.

    Any help?

    I have Windows XP if that helps.

    I think the only way in this situation is to DFU Restore, then jailbreak again. :/

    Rejailbreak without restoring.

    Next time do not delete, just re-install straight away without wiping out your only Installer with a graphical front-end.

    you can rejailbreak your touch with apps already on it. download redsnow 0.7.1 put your touch into DFU mode before opening it,open then find 3.0 firmware. It will put cydia on touch and I believe still kepp apps and stuff on it.

    im trying to resolve this issue too..unfortunately i got stuck on the apple icon now =( .. no matter what i do.. i need to SSH it to it!

    Cydia re-install Trial and Error.

    Problem: when I click Cydia the applications opens some black background with a blue top, then it closes

    Tools: Filezilla/ SSH
    Luckily I used apt-backup thing.

    Last Resort: Resort using the shift+click restore and select my firmware file in %userprofile% … somewhere in there..

    Does cydia have any install in /var/mobile/applications .. I was playing around in that directory and all of a sudden Cydia died.


    I ran ls –alr | egrep cydia
    But it didn’t return anything so I would presume not..

    • Tried: http://www.[PIRACY].com/showthread.php?t=56882 remove all but “partial”
    • Ive trying removing lists
    • Tried apt-get update
    • I tried that cydia list cleanup .exe tool. Cache list cleaner
    download this software:
    http://modmyi.com/forums/downloads/w...stcache-31887/
    • I tried some method renaming some .d file or somethign
    • Cydia.deb install
    • Cydia.deb + essentials re-install
    • I tried running redsnow again twice. No effect.
    • I also tried : apt-get remove cydia
    apt-get install cydia
    • Try ipod touch in safe mode http://blog.alltechrelated.com/2008/12/25/how-to-put-your-iphoneipod-touch-into-safe-mode/ .. nope cydia still dead in safe mode.
    • Tried blacklisting cydia from backgrounder,it resprings.



    Some commands I may try
    wget http://apt.saurik.com/debs/cydia_1.0.2953-59_iphoneos-arm.deb
    • dpkg -i cydia_1.0.2953-59_iphoneos-arm.deb

    Fix Cydia crashes and defects
    http://www.[PIRACY].com/showthread.php?t=34550

    • re-install cydia tutorial http://efeion.blogspot.com/2008/09/uninstall-and-reinstall-cydia.html
    • check /var/mobile/library/installer via SSH
    • 1- apt-get remove Cydia in terminal

    2- if the package is physically gone, you can remove it from installer by editing the installed packages file which is root/var/mobile//Library/Installer/LocalPackages.plist (thru SSH)

    3- ctrl+F then type Cydia

    4- remove everything between <dict> and </dict> include the tags
    it's about 630 lines.

    5- save your changes.

    6- shut down iphone then power on again.
    solved:

    delete everything that starts with apt.bigboss in /private/var/lib/apt/lists
    (http://modmyi.com/forums/cydia-supp...r-install-updates-lockscreen-weathericon.html)

    ---
    1) ssh to the iPhone, and do a "cd /Applications/Cydia.app"
    2) I did a "./Cydia" but nothing happened
    3) but then I did a "./Cydia_" and I tapped the Cydia icon, and ...!!!... IT LAUNCHED!!!

    It rebuilded the /var/lib/apt/lists that I have deleted and it was A-OK
