Thread: Cydia Down?

After operating a large repository for both package managers for over a year now, I have a few thoughts on this. When I first met Cydia, I was a bit critical, but now that I've got a solid amount of use in both under my belt, Cydia is FAR superior to Installer.
AppStore gets around this by simply NOT ALLOWING users to use more complex features of the OS. Ever seen a video recorder in the AppStore?
ModMyi.com alone as a repository uses over 1.5TB (yup, 1024 GB) of bandwidth, and a whole lot of server resources to serve over 40 million requests monthly. This is NOT cheap. If you have $10k/year to simply "give" to this community just because you like modding your iPhone, then by all means host a repo our size, spend 20-30 hours a week updating, maintaining, and keeping it running smooth, and don't serve a single ad on it. I'll get you a medal.

My cydia Home page wouldn't load today, from about 7AM to 4PM. It worked after for a little bit. Now, when I open it, it just reads Loading data for 3-4 seconds and crashes. Oh god. Help!!!!

Yo, after Cydia came back up it kept givin me the same *****...
I got feed up with that so I did the old apt-get update, followed by the remove cydia and install cydia, another get update (no reboot between anything) and boom! She's back in business...
But I have to say, that's the the first time that whole dog and pony show ever worked for me. That apt-get biz is generaly a big fat Zero for me, but I'm generaly an idiot.

That said, this work for me earlier today and has been rock solid since after reboots and everything:
Open mobile terminal type:
apt-get update (then hit enter) I did this just to see what the hell errors where going down because nothing closes down in terminal.
When its done type:
apt-get remove cydia (hit enter) its going to then ask you to type
"Yes, do as I say!"
Then when that wraps up type:
apt-get install cydia (and watch her go).
I did not reboot between, I never left terminal and now it works.
If you do this and your ***** breaks, I am completely void of any responsibility via the Idiot Clause I've stated above.
It's legally binding.

I didn't do that. well. not exactly.
first i had a bunch of errors due to files that didn't have persmission.
so i fixed all of those errors and then it told me a source was not readable or something so i deleted the file and cydia started working again =]

The idiots are getting it done today brother...
[as I am open editing a script file with a core file open as well, not backed up 4 pints into my Irish half dozen].
Nice AJ, that's the first thing I do when I have issues.
Start deleting crap that looks like "lock" or "failed" and jack every permission to a volume of 10. Sometimes it works, sometimes she boat anchors.
But I do love it so.

All I'm getting today when trying to install apps from cydia is "size missmatch". What does that mean ?
Never had issues with cydia before.

I got that size mismatch earlier today when I tried to get clearcam, now I can get it.

yea i cant get on either

size mismatch means that the hash from the .deb file doesn't match the hash from the packages index file. Just have to wait till the packager fixes the problem.
