    hi, whenever i try and do anything in cydia, even simple things like installing an app or adding a source, i just get errors from every other source... meaning i cant do anything. as such, i was just wondering if there is a way to reinstall cydia? i think ive got SSH working, so i can use that if need be. but it would be better to do it without my computer. I've looked at a few other threads too, but i thought id better ask since this is on 4.1 and not the older FW's which most of the old threads are talking about.

    Iphone 4 on 4.1 JB'en with Limera1n this morning

    DFU restore and rejailbreak.

    I think you can delete cydia from cydia, then rejailbreak, install it via limera1n

    Then do a DFU.

    DFU never fails.
