Cydia was working then I downloaded 3 new repositories (They were between the letters A-D) and then when I was finished it closed out and I haven't been able to get in since that time.
Does anyone know what I should do? Should I openssh and try to delete the repositories? Would that work? What is the folder where they are stored?
I'm open for any ideas...

Thanks L00i3 I went in and deleted the sources and I'm still being shut out of Cydia.
I followed another link and found this:
"My Cydia was crashing every time it opened. I traced it to corrupt files in /var/lib/dpkg/updates. Deleting them fixed Cydia. I can't guarantee that will fix Cydia crashes but it has worked for several people who have asked the same question here recently.
Here are a few methods to delete them.
SSH into the phone and type "rm /var/lib/dpkg/updates/*" (without quotes) and hit enter. Delete the updates.
Open MobileTerminal on the phone and type "rm /var/lib/dpkg/updates/*" (without quotes) and hit enter.
Use the apps iFile or Discover from Cydia to browse to /var/lib/dpkg/updates/ and swipe the files then select delete, or in iFile select edit, check all the files, then tap the trash can at the bottom."
I used the first method. It worked!! I'm back in Cydia!
