You have iFile?

If so delete Cydia, then re add.

back up your "shit" before doing this (:

To fix this, simply navigate to /var/lib/apt/lists and delete all the files in this folder except for the folder called “partial”.

Then reboot your iPhone and launch Cydia. It should load without crashing

if you have problems with the apt-get command not being found, download the apt-get file here: Send big files the easy way. Files too large for email attachments? No problem!
Then SSH it to /usr/bin/ and the command should work.


Identify the Problem:

This is probably a good place to start ... follow the steps to see if you can determine the problem with your Cydia:

Quote:
1) Open Terminal on the device or through SSH.
2) Type the following:

su
alpine
apt-get update

3) Read the error message.
Sometimes just running the update command will fix the issue!


Cydia Crash on Load:

Quote:
1) SSH into your device.
2) Navigate to the /var/lib/apt/lists/ folder.
3) Delete everything EXCEPT the partial folder.
4) Reboot.


Cydia Won't Add a Repo:

There are very few possible explanations, here are a few:
1) The repo is down, check the forums for more information.
2) You typed it wrong, many people forget to put the / at the end of a repo url.
3) You aren't connect to a network ... pretty self explanatory.


Source Error:

A common error message would be Bzip2 error or the fact that a source is not functioning correctly.

IF A REPO ONLY ACCEPTS ONE DEVICE PER ACCOUNT YOU WILL GET THIS MESSAGE IF YOU ADD MORE THAN ONE DEVICE (our repo is like this)

If you cannot remove the source from Cydia or the problem persists, try this:

Quote:
1) SSH into your device.
2) Navigate to the /etc/apt/ folder.
3) Backup the cydia.list OR sources.list.d file.
4) Edit the cydia.list OR sources.list.d file with a text editor and remove the entry related to the problematic source.
5) Reboot.
Crash After "Reloading Data":

If Cydia is crashing after the Reloading Data message then try this:
(If you don't have terminal installed, use terminal through SSH)

Quote:
1) Open Mobile Terminal/Terminal via SSH.
2) Type:

su
alpine
dpkg --configure -a

3) Reboot.
I am unsure that this is a valid fix but if you try it let me know the outcome please.


July 18th Error:

On July 18th, a corrupt package was posted. There was a 10 minute window where anyone who loaded Cydia would experience problems.
If you think you are having this problem please follow this link:

http://www.********.com/showthread.p...cydia+crashing


Icon is not Visible:

If your Cydia icon disappeared after you installed a new package and restarting doesn't get it back, follow these steps:
Quote:
1) SSH into /applications/cydia.app
2) Copy the icon.png to your computer.
3) Delete icon.png from the device
4) Respring and a basic, white icon will appear for Cydia.
5) Copy the icon.png back to /applications/cydia.app
6) Respring and the normal icon should be there.

Cyder:

Cyder is a progam for your computer that downloads and transfers packages/sources to your device.
It also has other useful feature which may fix problems such as clearing the cache.
To get it go here: http://www.********.com/showthread.p...ighlight=cyder


Reinstall Cydia:

If you can't find a fix for the problem and you really want it fixed, then try reinstalling Cydia.

Quote:
1) Open Terminal on your device or through SSH
2) Type the following commands:

su
alpine
apt-get remove cydia
apt-get install cydia

3) Reboot
Another method of reinstalling Cydia is:

Quote:
1) Download 2shared.com - free file sharing and storage
2) SSH the package to /var/mobile on your device.
3) Open Terminal and type the following:

su
alpine
dpkg -i cydia.deb

4) Reboot (twice sometimes)



If none of the above worked then you will be forced to rejailbreak ... there is no other way!

Wow thanks! evil beaner i tried your theory and it did the same thing. I ended up fixing it without restoring by deleting and reinstalling cydia through ssh/winscp. Everything works great now no problems. It was weird how it did it but it crashed while installing a theme i was downloading and when the phone reloaded and i tried to open cydia it would just crash almost immediately. Thanks for the help as always you guys

VenomR1,

I was having so many problems with the same thing. I ssh'd into the phone and reinstalled several differnet ways and still no go..


It turned out it was Emoji enabled that was causing it. I had emoji enabled through the APP, but turned off the Japanese Keyboard and it somehow fucked my Cydia from loading. Once I went into the App and disabled emoji and rebooted everything was fine again.

What a nightmare though.

I had this problem this morning when I tried to run cydia but it closed soon as it loads the main page,so I deactivated the emoji keyboard and still not joy...so I thought" Oh! Shit! And now?"... I then ran the update procedure through terminal after I erased all the list in the folder except the partial one and it worked...what I'm a bit concerned is"what about next time it happens again and this procedure will not work? "

You have no links where there should be. I think this was copied from somewhere. Apt-get no link, and Cydia.deb no link...

For some reason though I can't get apt-get to work. I heard that was on the old FW and doesn't work with the new ones?

Tried Aptitude in Cydia, and that didn't work either, but heard it worked for others...
