Thread: cydia error 'size mismatch'
02-23-2013, 10:52 AM #1cydia error 'size mismatch'
Hey guys, was hoping someone might be able to help me out/enlighten me.
Today I updated my iPhone 5 to 6.1.2 and installed evasion and began installing tweaks like iFile, iCleaner, MultiIconMover and Activator (haven't added any other repos) Then I bought and attempted to install Ayecon and since I hadn't downloaded Winterboard yet, it would download at the same time. The download was almost done but then I got the 'size mismatch' error.
Now, I'm fairly new at jailbreaking, the beginning of the month was my first, but I got somewhat of a hang of what to do when I ran into errors or crashes, usually thanks to posts of others. So far I have tried refreshing and reloading Cydia, removing and added back the BigBoss repo, I removed all other tweaks, resprung, etc., but have not been able to install Winterboard successfully. I keep running in to the same error message. I do realize there has been some issues with Ayecon since its newest version, but just installing Winterboard separately shouldn't be a problem, right?
Anyone, any ideas?

The BigBoss repo has been having some issues the past couple of days. I know there is a update for Ayecon that surenix is trying to release. Be patient - I would think they will have it up soon.

Just Jailbroke my son's 3GS Turns out that Winterboard has the same error message on his phone as well. Glad I didn't do another restore on my phone just to try and 'fix' the problem... Guess I just need to patiently sit back and wait...

Sitting back and waiting isnt really my thing, so i continued my quest to get this size mismatch error for winterboard resolved. Especially since I bought Ayecon and couldnt get that installed either. Not sure if this was the proper way of doing it... but it worked
With the help of posts #6 and #10 in this MacRumors Forum I used iFile to install the newest Winterboard deb and it worked like a charm.
