Thread: i need to reinstall cydia help!
12-24-2010, 12:49 AM #21
Hey okay so I have an iPhone 4 with 4.2.1 software and I jailbroke it a few days ago and it was working fine. But springboard crashed on me and I tried to reboot it but it kept saying springboard crashed. So I went through cydia and deleted a lot. I accidentally deleted cydia. But winterboard is still on my home screen along with other things from cydia. But when I tried opening terminal is didn't open at all. I tried to restore my iPhone but it says apple won't let it be restored . So how do I either get cydia back and fix the springboard problem or how can I just restore my whole iPhone ? HELP ME PLEASE ! thank you !

Just do the stuff that is on top of the thread over this thread. Also, to get the cydia file, go to the link in the easy way.

i did the mobile terminal "apt-get remove cydia" "apt-get install cydia" and i got an error saying "could not perform immediate configuration on 'essential'. please see man 5 apt.conf under APT::Immediate-Configure for details" what does that mean and how can i fix this error
01-16-2011, 07:09 PM #25Use another way
First one requires Safari Download Manager and iFile
Second way requires OpenSSH. If you do not have one, you will have to use iPhone Explorer on your computer.
Way#1: Go to Safari and download Cydia Go to downloads in Safari and press the downloaded file, then press "Open in iFile" and press Installer. You might have to reboot for the Cydia to appear.
Way#2: On your PC, download the Cydia file first, then follow the following directions:
Step 1: Open up your iPhone’s filesystem on your desktop from SSH or iPhone Explorer
Step 2: Navigate to the folder /private/var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall (If you don’t have the Cydia or AutoInstall folders, you just need to create them. They are case sensitive.)
Step 3: Drag and drop the cydia_1.0.3366.7.iphoneos-arm.deb file that you downloaded into the AutoInstall folder

also a full reboot is turning off the phone and turning it back on correct?
i did both way 1 and 2 and my cydia continues to crash

Okay, first go over all those things again or twice. Or get help from an iDevice expert (not a Apple worker).

Try to rejailbreak it and see if that works if not. Only way I know would be a restore.
