Thread: where can i manually get and install cydia?

    Default where can i manually get and install cydia?
    I'm not going even get into the chain of stupidity that has led me to this, but generally speaking it all started when I went to update weathericon and mobile substrate as "essential updates" that things started to go awry...

    Cydia just started crashing on load and I started tweaking, thought I found another copy turned out to be a previous version that was incompatible with 3.0...

    bla bla bla...

    So now I am without cydia :-(

    Anyone know where I can find it so's I can SSH it back to where it belongs?

    Thanks

    I don't think it's possible without a jailbreak.

    ^cydia.deb is on the iPhone? Well if it's not then you can get it in the repo and to the 'dpkg -i cydia.deb'. But seriously Cydia depends upon a LOT of other stuff. Hope nothing else is screwed up

    i'm not very good with unix systems, exactly how would I go about reinstalling it with cydia.deb via terminal?

    I can't even seem to find such a thing.

    Would it be similiar to apt-get install?

    I am familiar with that process, but that's when I was toying with ubuntu.

    (im a bit more inclined to gentoo nowadays)

    goto apt.saurik.com / debs and get the latest cydia deb. SSH it into var/mobile and then in terminal type dpkg -i xxxxxx.deb

    thanks for all the help thus far!

    I keep getting an error that states:

    "dpkg: error processing cydia_xxx.deb (--install):
    unable to create './Application/Cydia.app/commercial.png': No such file or directory
    Errors were encountered while processing: cydia_xxx.deb"

    it happened in both /var/mobile and /var/stash

    that's a bit much for one small thing dontcha think?

    I would have to be facing some serious stability issues before I committed to that.

    Maybe when 3.1 comes out, but not till then.

    Cydia starting crashing on me the other day after an upgrade. Try this, it worked for me: SSH in and go to /var/lib/apt/lists Delete everything EXCEPT the folder named "partial". Reboot.

    well, i need a full install as there really isn't much else to delete. I've tried just about everything that is within my knowledge and the only real thing i can come up with is a fresh install.

    there has to be a way to manually install this, after all cydia isn't much more then apt-get if i'm not mistaken...

    let me try this, how would i do something along the lines of "sudo apt-get install cydia.deb?"
