Thread: Cydia Forces Reboot After Every Installation or App Removal??

  1. #1
    Default Cydia Forces Reboot After Every Installation or App Removal??
    I'm familiar with certain apps that require a reboot but now any app I install or remove Cydia then requires forces me to Reboot Device afterwards. I would prefer to not have to do a full restore for more than a few reasons. Is there anyway to delete and reinstall Cydia via SSH? And if so what happens to all the apps I installed from Cydia once I delete Cydia?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    For the record this problem started after the last cydia update I saw and installed in my updates. I tried to remove it but it warned me if I uninstall it then it could make Cydia useless. I just need to stop updating things that I working flawless. I get so tempted by the badge when I open Cydia that I eventually break down and just update. Hopefully one day I learn my lesson. I trusted saurik so I went for it now I regret it.

    Rerunning redsn0w should reinstall cydia without deleting your apps. It might not fix your problem though

    Thanks! I never thought about this option. After researching and not finding any info I've decided to just live with it for awhile. I don't constantly install and uninstall things in Cydia so its not a daily inconvenience but eventually I will either try your method or just bite the bullet and do a complete restore.

    UPDATE - I updated Erica Utilities and Cydia finally stopped configuring every app I had installed and making me reboot device after I add or remove an app. Problem solved.
