Thread: Cydia Crashes Even After Re-JailBroken!

    Default Cydia Crashes Even After Re-JailBroken!
    Ok what happened is that I was installing some winterboard theme from the "complete" section in Cydia. I was installing "Kosmo English Version". After it finished download the "preparing" bar was loading. I waited for awhile, but it wouldn't even move to half the bar...So I decided to exit because I knew it was stuck. I hit lock without thinking, then unlocked, the bar still says preparing and stuck. I then hit the menu button and it brought me back to the spring board. I then tried applying some themes that I had successfully downloaded before trying to download "Kosmo English Version". After playing around with the themes. I decided to head back to Cydia to see if I could install "Kosmo English Version" since it didn't finished last time. I tap Cydia and it shows the bottom bar blank and Cydia background. After about 5 seconds, Cydia will close and bring me back to the spring board. I tried re-booting, re-jailbreaking. But not restoring yet. Because I would loose my info and have to re-enter everything all over. And another thing, I SSH and went looking into the Winterboard directory and saw two theme files. I deleted one that was older. I don't know if that has to do with anything. And reason why I deleted the folder was because it looked exactly the same as the other one except was named "Themes.lyxTFl" and the other I had deleted had another random extension. And those folder were located in "/private/var/stash"

    Anyone able to help me? I don't really want to restore my phone. I've used all my memory on my iPhone. So I don't really like re-syncing because it'll take so long.

    If you have access to SSH and Terminal app. I believe you can re-install cydia using the command lines.

    Open MobileTerminal, and type this:



    apt-get remove cydia (to be safe)

    Yes, do as I say!

    apt-get install cydia
