    Make sure your Cydia is refreshed. It's a common issue.

    If you can't remove an app/tweak from Cydia, there is likely a conflict. The conflict usually occurs when you have one app/tweak installed and you've attempted to install (intentionally or not) the same app/tweak from a different source. This issue can only be resolved if you know what is trying to be overwritten but cannot because the file already exists. You need to SSH into the device and manually delete it, then go back into Cydia and complete the uninstall of the queued package.

    If the above is not the case, then more details would likely be necessary to diagnose (if the basic refresh H4CK3R mentioned does not work as well).

    How do you refresh Cydia? Once I delete it, I wont be able to bring it up.

    I'll try to Google for the answer, but if someone knows, please share.

    It's the little thing that pops up when you open Cydia with the black bar at the top of the screen. If it doesn't do that, go into Changes > Refresh.

    Will try. I also found:

    1) Open Terminal on your device or through SSH
    2) Type the following commands:
    su
    alpine
    apt-get remove cydia
    apt-get install cydia

    3) Reboot

    Another method of reinstalling Cydia is:

    1) Download Cydia (use google to find the link)
    2) SSH the package to /var/mobile on your device.
    3) Open Terminal and type the following:
    su
    alpine
    dpkg -i cydia.deb

    4) Reboot (twice sometimes)

    Thanks.

    The first method is the easiest. But I normally don't do reinstalling Cydia until there's nothing else to fix it. But yes, you can do that.

    Heh. I looked into the issue a bit further, before reinstalling anything. And the problem is that /dev is full. Df -k shows /dev as 100%. Now I need to figure out what to delete from there.

    / is full too. Damn.

    You could try increasing your root partion too, that's why I make my partion pretty good sized since I like tweaking it up
