Thread: Lost Cydia

  1. #1
    Default Lost Cydia
    Hey guys, my phone is jailbroken..... Had a friend do it for me. I backed up my info on the iPhone to iTunes last night, and when I looked at my summerboard a lot of my apps where gone. I still had my winterboard, and I also still had all my Jailbroken settings, but my cydia is gone. I've tried the settings and enabling the restrictions and disabling it, and nothing happened. I don't know much since a friend did it, and now He won't help so i'm asking for your guys's help please. I'm a bit n00bish, but willing to learn lol. Thanks

    Oh, and the firmware wasn't updated..... I'm still using 3.1.2

    i had the same problem and this is how i fix it. if you have ssh you need to go into whatever you use and run the terminal in WinSCP you go to command->open terminal now you have to type in:
    apt-get remove cydia and press enter when it says to type in Yes, say as I do! type that in and press enter.
    now type in apt-get install cydia and press enter if it says the do as i say thing again just do that. wait for it to finish and respring your iPhone. And that should get it back if it doesn't like it did on mine you need to do this.

    open the terminal and type
    apt-get ugrade
    let that run when it stops at any step respring and see if that fixed it if it doesn't type in
    apt- get remove cydia
    let that run and when it stops at any step run the command
    apt-get install cydia
    let it run when and if it stops at any step respring and see if that worked if it doesn't try this process a few more times and if it stil doesn't work the way i got it was by downloading the .deb file put it on your iPhone and run the command
    dpkg -i /tmp/mobileterminal_316s-7_iphoneos-arm.deb
    wait for that to finish (it will install mobile terminal) after resprining when it stopped at one of the steps i resprung and everything was there cydia and mobile terminal if that doesn't work but it did get you mobile terminal try the process with mobile terminal and if that doesn't work then rejailbreak

    WOOT! It worked, Cydia is back. Thank you so much. I had to download the .deb file in the end myself. But it all worked.

    Where did you find the deb file?

    I found it. Thanks anyway. (Cydia still crashes)
