    go to var/lib/apt/lists and delete all files except the folder "partial", run Cydia again and you'll get the list back.

    Not command line, just the file path you need. SSH to that file path given and delete everything except the partial folder.

    There needs to be a sticky for this and the other "cydia won't load" fixes

    If you haven't already downloaded ssh or ifile from cydia, then it looks like a restore!!

    Dang I was afraid u were goin to say that..
    About how long would that take?

    Also I should add, that I was trying to add a source, and that's when all the pop ups saying "cannot reach host", "no header" etc.. So is my problem still the same? Will adding the windows SSH program be necessary now?

    what jailbreak method did you use? If blackra1n, you can delete Cydia and re-install it.

    Default Cydia sources disappeared
    Do you need open SSH for this? I'm not a techie so not sure what the below means. My cydia sources disappeared. Not really sure what to do? Is this something you can help me with?
