    So my Cydia is f***ed

    Please Register or Log in to view images

    it was crashing at start up so i deleted files from the lib folder, and since that didn't work i just pasted them back were they belonged. Cydia now opens, but it doesn't recognize files which i previously removed and added back again, and it is just blank on packages and sources. BTW i don't have a wi-fi connection at the moment

    So i cant use cydia to remove packages aka apps, so can somebody post some useful terminal commands

    For example, what was that command to remove packages, i have a conflicting package (ibluenova) which i deleted with Cydelete, but it didn't fully deleted it screwed up and now i cant install the app again

    I need to fully delete it, so whats the terminal command to remove packages, and some other useful commands to like clean cydia?

    That's what you would use on a Linux system, as far as I remember.

    Ok thanks for the response
    But once i am on terminal, how do i specify the path of the app i want to delete

    i.e (on mobile terminal)
    su
    *root password*
    apt-get remove ibluenova?

    @ Olipen
    I know that a restore is probably the easiest way, but i would like to hold on to that until all jailbreak apps are optimized for fw 4.0 and bugs sorted out, next time i restore i would like to just upgrade to 4.0

    I think that

    su
    *root password*
    apt-get remove ibluenova

    would work, since apt-get remove cydia works...

    Do you have afc2add installed?

    Does this has anything to do with my Cydia being screwed?

    Update: I reinstalled the ibluenova deb with mobile terminal, rebooted and somehow it worked
    But my Cydia is so screwed that i cant even use apt-get remove anymore not even to remove cydia
