its not ur falt its Cydia getting angrywith the repo packages

Saurik@fireball0093 When a repository provides corrupted updates, APT gets angry. As you've seen, Cydia can now recover when the problem is fixed.

Not sure if this should go here but I applied some important updates to Cydia today and now it no longer loads the homepage (Unable to Load). Has anyone else encountered this problem or maybe Cydia is just down at the minute for updates etc

Also having the same problem since this time yesterday. Cydia wouldn't go passed the downloading packages for me either. Thought it might have been me installing Xcellize cause after that is when all my probe started hope Cydia gets back up soon really wanna install SinfuliPhone. The website looks great and I've been told has alot of cool features. Really wanna install the NES Simulator haven't played Shadowgate in like 18 yrs and really wanna try it again. Anyone know where else I could get the emulator? Wold be great

My issue started after adding repo.iphonecake.com I saw
that repo mentioned in thepiratebay. When i added it cydia never
acted the same and it would just stick at that downloading prompt. After a force quit
is when all the problems started. However it was several hours before
i added that repo was the last time i remembering opening cydia without
issues. So im hoping its just cydia thats offline and nothing i did.
Anyone else?

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!


this is some stuff off ******** hope it help note- i had to run some of the c0de stuff 3 or 4 times b4 it would work

Good article on clearing out corrupt Cydia sources via SSH. Corrupt Cydia sources cause many crashes. Hope this helps. It's helped me many times over - Cydia Crashes When Loading Tech Chronicle
