Thread: How do you stop cydia from trying to load a repo that you typed wrong?

    Default How do you stop cydia from trying to load a repo that you typed wrong?
    I was adding a source to cydia, and I typed it incorrectly. It will never find the source...

    I keep getting the message that cydia cannot find the source.

    How do I stop cydia from looking for that source?

  2. #2
    Go into cydia
    Manage tab
    Sources
    Edit
    Delete

    The problem that its not there , I am assuming the reason is that it did not sucessfully install the source?

  4. #4
    Go back click it and hit modify, reinstall

    Go to etc/apt/sources.list.d and edit the file cydia.list, delete the line having typo error.

    If that doesn't work, you might also need to edit it out of the /var/lib/cydia/metadata.plist file. You should be able to tell from the other sources in the file what it should look like after you've edited it.

    Make a backup of the file before attempting it.

    well, it wasnt in the cydia.list but I did find my mistake in the metadata.plist

    my error was typing cudia instead of cydia in the start of the repo address.

    I changed it to cydia and put that back on the iphone. It still gives me the error trying to load a repo that starts cudia.

    Do I need to clear a cache somewhere??

    Delete all references to the bad address in the /var/lib/apt/lists folder and the /var/lib/apt/lists/partial folder. Do not delete the lists folder itself and do not delete the partial folder inside it either. Only the files.

    As aneagle said, delete all references to the address in the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cydia.list file.

    As before, delete it out of the /var/lib/cydia/metadata.plist file as well.

    With all of it, don't try to edit it to the correct address, just delete all the bad references. When it works properly, you can add the repo from within Cydia.

    Wouldn't it just be quicker to uninstall cydia and then reinstall
