try reinstalling cydia, it is usually something wrong with cydia itself, this has happened to me before (and reinstalling cydia wont delete anything)

lol

look

The mismatch error is not fixable from your site.

Every file has a hashsum wich is uesd by error protocolls like md5 challenge to prevent /detect download errors to verify the whole file is complete transfered without any loss this ensures the hashsum .It can also be used as indicator that the file was modificated i.e trojans added and so on

So cydia tells your phone a hashsum that is compared after downloading a certain file and if they dont fit you get an error .The thing is to find out if its the repos fault or a maybe to weak internet connection .

The reinstalling of cydia doesnt fix this ,but give it a try and come to the same verdict .

Ok now I know l8ter is going to jump on me for saying this, but here goes.

I had a similar problem when I did a fresh restore on my iphone 4. Instead of manually entering the sources list I just transfered them over with cyder. All seemed to be going well, until I went to Sinful's repo to download an app. Got the size mismatch error. Ok I thought maybe just the app. Tried a different app, same result, I started trying all the apps and was getting the same result.

So what I did was drop a new cydia into the autoinstall folder, reboot. Manually added sources one by one and hey presto, the size mismatch error vanished......

Now I don't know if it was just a corrupt file (source or whatever) but it did fix my problem.

Anyway, the reality is though that most size mismatch errors are as l8ter points out. Mine was I was just trying something different to see if it would save time and I think I screwed up somewhere..... Never know though till you try

Naa

Man you have a wrong pic of me , i only jump on people who telling crab , wich often occurs.

I also had so many battles with cydia wich is buggy as hell and the only fix i found to preserve cydias full functionality is : Not to use it ,instead its bedder to use cyder exept ******** all sources work and i dont waste any time with sauriks masterpiece of shit .

For me all these advices to fix certain cydia problems never worked like rejailbreak or reinstalling cydia .

These are my experiences and iam struggeling since os 2.0 with cydia .(doesnt mean it dont works for others )

And i also told him not to listen to me and should try the first suggestion , that shows iam not that sort of oversized ego that dont see any other ways instead of my way to solve things.
