    Cydia has been having it's problems today, it's not your phone. Hopefully it will be back to normal soon.

    I'm tempted to restore and rejailbreak but I'm not sure how to save the backups for aptbackup and springback..

    Edit: This is probably not the most practical solution, but my recent interests for cydia are the 2g mms hack, and I just read an article that 2g isn't getting mms EVER, which is completely ridiculous. If that's the case, could anyone give me some background info on trading a 2g, still undercontract, in for a 3g/3gs?

    Thats not the case. Any iphone capable of mms will have that option. That sounds like that rumor that we will have to pay extra.

    here is the help I got in another thread that worked perfect and I do use hackulo without a problem


    myke_415frisko




    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    lets just leave your hacker and command for now..so when you open your cydia does it crash?if it stil crashes try using clear cydia bro..second option is to ssh your phone go to var/lib/apt/list...delete all files EXCEPT PARTIAL...exit ssh..lauch cydia and wait for it to update..add ur sources and reinstall whatever you installed before..

    ps..actually it also didnt work.its crashed but when i did the ssh and deleted the file that is in list folder EXCEPT PARTIAL..closed ssh and open cydia..it worked..just wait a few a minutes after you open cydia and it will update.after that i added back all my sources...btw im also running on 3gs 3.0.1..

    if clear cydia doesnt work..use the second option that i told u..for me i didnt use clear cydia..hey hope that will help..

    Thumbs up error:Database Encountered a section with no Package::header
    Here is the Magic solution to the header error that works 100% found in another great forum:

    "Originally Posted by dieg0_o
    ok i just got the header error and i think i fixed it.

    1- SSH into your idevice, go to /private/etc/apt/sources.list.d
    2- open the cydia.list and CUT everything in there. open notepad and paste it there.(this is a back up)
    3- go to /private/var/lib/apt/lists and CUT everything except lock and partial. paste it all in a folder in your computer to back it up.
    4- go into the partial folder and CUT everything, also back it up.
    5- cydia will work fine, but when you go to sources it'll be empty. so, add a source. i added http:// cydia.hackulo.us/ (no space) and all the sources will reappear.

    if sometihng goes wrong after, just use the backed up files to go back to how it was. until now everything works, refeshes, installations.. etc. if this is a good and easy solution post it in the first post, ben. if theres a better solution post that one. many people having this problem lately."

    I tested it for the same error and fully worked!!!!

    ENJOY

    Thanks for this great post....works great. I was wondering if you could possibly post the stock cydia lock file...I accidentally deleted it during this process. Everything seems fine, but I feel like I should have it. If you can, that'd be awesome...thanks again!
