I was trying to manually install a .deb file using cydia.
I sshed into my ipad and went to the cydia folder
I made an autoinstall folder and dumped my .deb file.
I guess the file was corrupted or somethint because it put my ipad in safe mode. However, after i reboot my ipad it crashes again. I tried to ssh into my ipad but the autoinstall folder is gone. Now my ipad crashes everytime it restartss. Is there a way to stop cydia from autoinstalling the .deb????

By crashing, do you mean it goes into "Safe Mode" or what? What DEB file was it? If you get into safe mode, are you able to open Cydia? If not, do you have SSH installed? If so, then you can use PuTTy to get into the iPad and use apt-get to see what is going on in Cydia. apt-get is basically the command line version of Cydia. Cydia was made to be a graphical front end, to make the experience a little nicer. However, apt-get has more commands and controls that one can utilize than Cydia. I hope some of this helps! If not, I'd be glad to help if you provide a little more information.
