    Yes, its there

    However, I did notice something, in the "changes" section of cydia there's an app right at the top of the list which is dated 2020... I changed the date earlier to try something out after which I put it back to the current one. Could that be the cause?

    Ok, is there anyway to delete the changes and let cydia refresh it again?

    Probably, it bases new stuff on the time/date on your iphone. Dunno how to remedy this. Possibly a bug in Cydia where it won't reset dates? Anyone else had this problem.

    SSH into your phone and edit the file /var/lib/cydia/metadata.plist

    Edit it with notepad and change whatever year is appearing at the top of the changes list back to the current 2008, respring and it will be back to normal.

    I am having the same problem. A temporary work around is this: Go into the manage tab and click "packages" - yes, packages, not sources. Click on "BigBoss's Source". Uninstall it then go back and reinstall it. Somehow this forces it to update whereas it doesn't normally. It's a little aggravating to have to do that each time, but hey - it works......

    Has anyone found a solution to this rather than just a temporary work around?

    Thank you chrismja! I was getting tired of hitting refresh a bazillion times to get the new stuff over the last week or so... I dropped in to sauriks IRC and he had several messages about this there. Drop a line to him there his IRC info is on cydias' home page.
    This is getting a lil' ridiculous...

    So has anyone found a fix for this yet rather then uninstalling sources and then re-installing them?

    Found out if you have adblocking installed that is what is causing the problem. Un-installed the adblock and now everything updates automatically like a charm!

    Any chance you could upload your hosts file so I can alleviate this problem as well? It's found in...

    Navigate to /etc/


    Thanks!

    NEVERMIND! Got it in the filemod section!! Thanks

    OK, that is not working for me. Put the default Hosts file so there is no adblocking going on and I still have to uninstall bosssources and reinstall to see changes in Cydia?????
