    These are the error messages what I get when I try to open cydia.

    "Wow you exceeded the number of package names this APT is capable of"

    "Problem with merge list"

    "The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened".

    No, you will lose nothing that is installed by deleting the repos. This situation typically happens when pirate/warez repos are added. Just sayin'.

    Not sure what you mean by pirate/wares repos.

    It's because of the partitioned system storage space allotted.
