    Default Stuck in Cydia Queue....
    I am getting the error message
    sub-process/usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)

    every time I try to do anything with Cydia. It appears that I have a copy of Iconoclasm stuck in the queue for some reason. I have removed all my non-essential sources, tried the renaming trick in var/lib/dpkg,

    Solution:
    1- Get your way to the file and directory structure of your iPhone (through SSH or iFile or Mobile Terminal ...)
    2- Look for the /var/lib/dpkg/ directory
    3- You should be able to find the following files: available, availble-old, status, status-old
    4- Rename "available" to "available-bak"
    5- Rename "status" to "status-bak"
    6- Rename "available-old" to "available"
    7- Rename "status-old" to "status"
    8- Start Cydia , make sure that you allow Cydia to load completely first (just to be on the safe side ), try to install some apps.


    but all to no avail. ANyone have another way around this? I really don't want to rejailbreak if possible. Thanks

    If you haven't restored yet, can you post a screenshot of the error messages? They might have useful clues.
