    Default Http/1.1 403 forbidden -cydia
    Been having an issue as of late with Cydia. Symptoms began yesterday when I was unable to delete and remove a tweak.

    Now today, I attempted to update a couple of packages from BigBoss and ModMyI and received the dreaded http/1.1 403 forbidden. Now what is odd about this is, it has not been associated with any particular repo. To make sure I deleted BigBoss repo resprung and then attempted to re-add BigBoss. When I did this it did not take and gave me an "Unable to add might be a legacy..." message.

    Now we all know BigBoss is not down or dead so I explored further and decided to play with Cydia, thinking that maybe BigBoss changed the URL again. So when I went to Cydia main page and attempted to go into the "More package resources", the page is blank. In fact every page off the main dealing directly with Cydia is blank.

    So I can't DL, remove, or add anything.

    Anyone have any ideas or suggestions because I am stumped.

    Thanks.

    Oh sure. CyberDuck, or WinSCP. I actually went into my iPhone to var/lib/apt/sources/ and copied all the bigboss lists there and transferred them over to my iPad and then resprung. However BigBoss was not back and I am getting the 403s for whatever repo I attempt to DL from. I mean it is literally an all encompassing 403 forbidden. Does not matter what repo.

    So what suggestions might you have and if any, pls give specific directions.
    thanks

    Default Answer to 403 Forbidden
    I believe I found the answer to the 403 Forbidden error I announced in this thread.

    What I did, was simply hit up Redsn0w (it's what i used to JB) and rejailbroke the phone. I had 'Install Cydia" checked off and went through the normal process and it all seemed to clear up. (save for my still missing BigBoss Repo, but I fixed that too. Thats another story)

    Did I test this for any bugs or possible system collapses? Nope! But it worked for me. And I had no issues. So do it, but do it at your own risk.

    I think I will just wait it out and see if it's fixed by tomorrow.

    i am assuming this has the same results as a factory restore, right? as in, u start off again with a blank slate iphone and have to reinstall everything again... ?

    thanks for the post(s)!!!
