04-04-2013, 07:47 PM #1HELP W FULL? SYSTEM PARTITION iPhone 4 - iOS 6.1.2 Evasi0n
i am relatively new to the whole scene. My wife and i have just jailbroken our first iPhones, the iPhone 4 CDMA through Verizon wireless. We are running iOS 6.1.2, and have jb'd with Evasi0n.
Everything, minus the "typical" spring board crashes every once in a while, on MY phone is fine. I have numerous tweaks and quality customization has made me love the iPhone.
My wifes iphone on the other hand has had issues since we jb'd it. We've about got it worked out, and she is excited to do more with the Cydia store, but now, we can't get any apps to download. We recieve this error while trying to download to from Cydia on her phone:
X failed in buffer_write(fd) (8, ret=-1)
...more install stuff...
X sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
My only other option after this happens and the download stops is to restart springboard. When i open cydia again, it shows either that the file/package is there (but i can't find it or run/open it) or it shows me the "install" option again.
I looked online and have tried to "refresh" the changes tab in cydia. didn't work. I have deleted a lot of third party apps, but to no avail. I have even attempted maually deleting some files (languages that I will not use) in the system partition on her phone (this actually DID create some space as shown by the Cydia app, but took forever, and makes me nervous as im not sure what i should and shouldn't delete.)
Is there some way i can take off all the bs apps we have downloaded previously to restore function to the phone? or somehow utilize a utility program that will do the work for me? I need to be able to free up a lot of space, apparently. However, my iphone has many more tweaks and apps installed than my wifes, and it is no where close to the same space-used settings as my wifes.
someone please help! i need to restore my wifes faith in apple as well as the jailbreak that i spent three weeks talking her into....
I dont know the first thing about restoring using SHSH blobs, and don't even know if its possilble... Stitching an IPSW? no thanks. any other ideas??????????????????????????????

The file is located in ifile under
Var/stash/application and just take the Icleaner.app copy it and paste it in ya wife's it way work like that. Just make sure you put it in her phone in that command line. Respring and see that may work.

I had the same sources on her phone that i use, apt.dmytro.me, apt.iphonemodding.com, apt.modmyi.com, apt.namedfork.net, apt.pwncenter.com, apt.saurik.com, apt.thebigboss.org, apt.zuijlen.eu, cydia.ifoneguide.nl, cydia.touch-mania.com/, cydia.winterboarder.com, copy10.com, cydia/telesphoreo, dev team, hack&dev, ranbee, srt Design Labs, pwncenter.....
actually, she didn't have half of those, but ive recently cleared the ones she did from her sources, and still have the problem. I left the defaults.
okay, i have moved the icleaner.app to her phone in the same spot it was in mine, respring, the app shows on the springboard, but when i try to open it it flashes a white screen , and wont continue to open... help??

Yes there is a JB for i4 on 6.1.3, but it's tethered one. That means if you turn it of and back on again, to get it back to full function, you will need every time to do the just boot connected to you PC with redsnow. Apart from that, JB on 6.1.3 works just fine.
And from what I have seen above, your only option would be upgrade to 6.1.3

Hi, your message
X failed in buffer_write(fd) (8, ret=-1)
Might imply that you have a problem with your file permissions. Either with some folders of actual files. I don't know if you have SBSettings installed, but it has an option to repair some file permissions. Or you could compare your two iPhones file/folder permissions with iFile. For example, the Cydia download cache folder is at
By the way,if you have the Debian Saver Launch Daemon tweak installed, this clashes with Cydia downloads on iOS6

This worked for me.
now on my cydia there were two things it wanted to upgrade AppList and some Lib something
tap the first thing on the list with a green tick on the right - remove it
follow that step to remove the others with ticks
after that i resprung and cydia worked again.
