Thread: Loading Changes Tab in Cydia takes minutes

  1. #1
    Default Loading Changes Tab in Cydia takes minutes
    The title really explains the problem. I get the spiral saying loading changes and it last much much longer than it should. I was wondering if any had a solution to this or knew how to clear out the cache/package list for the changes tab. Thanks in advance, I just cant seem to find another forum with someone whose had this problem.

    Happens with me to, except it takes more like one minute. You just gotta wait it out. Its probably taking so long because you have so many packages installed.

    Edit: So I've found a solution! To all people suffering from agonizingly slow cydia reloading here is how you empty all of cydia's cache to give you a clean start.
    Step 1: Navigate to /private/var/lib/apt/list and delete all files except for the partial folder.
    Step 2: Go inside the partial folder and delete all files inside
    Step 3: Navigate to /private/var/lib/cydia and delete the metadata.plst
    Step 4: Open Cydia and be Happy!

    That does not work!

    Once you do that and open up Cydia it simply puts the files back where they were and Cydia is stuck on Downloading Packages!

    Maybe try deleting
    Var/cache/apt*delete both*bin*packages

    Var/lib/dpkg*and delete both*"old"*packages

    hope that helps

    you dont have to delete ALL of that, you can just do this:

    1) Navigate to /private/var/lib/cydia
    2) Delete metadata.plist. Make a backup before.
