HELP! dpkg was interrupted you must manually run 'dpkg configure -a' to correct the problem

ok i have an iphone 4s 5.0.1 jb with absinthe, orig carrier is verizon now running on rogers canada thanks to SAM.

the prob was i got my gevy at the same time SAM came out, so i tried to get gevey to work first....i got the gevey registration code and everything but i wouldnt get service. so i decided to del the furious mod app and re-install and try again with gevey...but it froze during install and now cydia wont run," i had already download SAM before my issue with cydia"... i get this msg

"dpkg was interrupted you must manually run 'dpkg configure -a' to correct the problem"

ive closed cydia and rebooted etc and still i get this error. and clicking return to cydia still doesnt work, just flashes back to that error..

can anyone help me? i cant use cydia at this point or anything to do with cydia.

Yes those who may find it useful, going to /var/lib/dpkg/updates and deleting all the numbered files and re-opening cydia worked.

---------- EDIT ----------

Reboot after deleting files

...winscp wont connect (connection refused).... i don't think i have open ssh on her iphone is there any way for me to do this? thanks.

would this work?
Version 0.9.10b7 of redsn0w adds a collection of useful features:
It can also re-install that jailbreak for those who accidentally uninstalled the untether

re-jailbreak to get cydia re-installed?

will wait on your answers.

Ifunbox will allow you to navigate there

Or you could try using mobile terminal

Type su root hit enter

type password default is "alpine" I suggest you change that

then type dpkg --configure -a

hit enter

reboot and launch cydia

that should do it!

Download mobile terminal and install with ifile or use iexplorer (you don't need open ssh installed)Just place the mobile terminal .deb file into the cydia AutoInstall folder and reboot. The run the command In mobile terminal that cydia told you to from the start

Type su root
Alpine
Then the command dpkg configure -a
With the spaces

I have tried doing this I added the the deb file into var/root/media/cydia/autoinstall. Had to add the cydia/autoinstall using iPhone explorer. I have rebooted the phone about 5 times and it won't install

---------- EDIT ----------

Ok so I finely got it to work by deleating the numbered files and rebooted it I've tried that way for days and it finely worked

Did you try deleating the files with iexplorer? You will have to use your computer for that.

No Just download iFunbox you will be able to get to the directory. It will be done on you PC. iFunbox is what you need. You can also download and install .deb's and .ipa's using iFunbox. More importantly you can navigate to /var/lib/dpkg/updates and delete the files.

On a side note BEFORE deleting any files from your phone you should back them up to your computer.

Remember to reboot your phone!

so you need to download a few things. iFunBox for one, and the mobileterminal that you can use for your device/firmware. not hard to find, just google it. there are three ways

First way
-download ifunbox and connect your device

-download the mobileterminal DEB

-use the autoinstall folder through ifunbox

-reboot

-use mobileterminal with the commands youve recieved ^

now thats the first way, and obvious way. the other way is annoying, but you can do it relatively easy. you still need ifunbox, mobileterminal and also winscp downloaded. Also, rename mobileterminal.deb to something simple. Like 1.deb

-install/open ifunbox

-connect phone and use the usb tunnel

-copy down info from this, like the ip address. and leave open ifunbox, and then open up winscp

-use winscp to “SSH” into your phone with the info given to you in iFunBox

- upload the mobileterminal.deb -> “1.deb” into your filesystem, I think you may be able to drag and drop. Its easiest if you drop It in /var

- on the winscp program, open up the terminal. From here type “su” and hit enter and then “alpine” and then hit enter. Without the “” marks.
-EDIT- you can also use the terminal in iFunBox

- last step, enter “dpkg -i /var/1.deb” exactly like this without the “” marks.
It should run the installer and install mobileterminal on your device. After that, restart your device and run the mobileterminal app and the commands you were given. Should be fixed up yo. Yeah, I said yo.

The last way is obiviously a last resort.
-run itunes, restore device
- rejailbreak
-fin.

hope it works for you

Mobile terminal .deb place this in var/root/media/Cydia/AutoInstall if it's not there create it. The folders are case sensitive
Reboot twice if it's not on your home screen
