Thread: Cydia being slow / locking up
07-10-2012, 07:31 PM #1Cydia being slow / locking up
I am trying to get Dreamboard and Metroon from Cydia, but it's been much of a hassle.
I was able to get Dreamboard after many attempts. Issues that were happening were Cydia locking up when searching for Dreamboard, locking up during install, and locking up when it asked to Restart Springboard.
After running iCleaner, I was able to successfully install Dreamboard.
But now I am in another roadblock, this time with downloading Metroon. It is a theme that I need to pay for, so when I try to get into Paypal, Cydia just locks up and nothing happens.
Reading the thread on the Youtube video about buying these apps, no one seems to be having issues.
So, why is Cydia locking up every time I try to use it? Do I need to re-install it?
I have iPhone 4S with 5.1.1

Very weird. How many tweaks do you have on this phone? Sounds like ya phone runnin out of ram.

I just have Activator, Dreamboard, iCleaner, My3G, MyWi, and SBSettings.
I still can't install Metroon. Cydia keeps locking when I am trying to purchase the app - or even click on the "Purchase App" selection
It also hangs when I try to connect with either Facebook or Google.
I have tried turning off Wifi and running it on 3G, but same results.

Very weird only issue I see that since I had the same issue was Icleaner I used it once and seem to work real good. But after a week or so I was having bad issues with phone locking up and all. Did a restore from new and been good ever since.

Restore from new as in from a backup, or did you reinstall Cydia?

I restored as new just in case something stays from backup and all that time is wasted.

Cydia locking up on me to just while browsing around inside the cydia app
I have to power off the phone and reload it to get it working again.
Just closing it and reopening it doesn't seem to work????

Same here. I'm getting errors about the MMi repo like 500: Internal Server Error and Cydia is just crashing on me every time I view a package from MMi. I'm thinking it has something to do with the repo.

I was finally able to get Metroon downloaded, but it took a number of reboots, iCleaner runs, and force stopping Cydia. No idea why it just wasnt working well last night :/
