    Default How to Speed Up Cydia's "Loading Changes"
    This tutorial is not recommended if you download themes from Cydia. Get quality themes from ModMyi, Macthemes, Macciti

    Original Guide (Mods remove link if it violates rules)

    1. Open Cydia
    2. Let it refresh your sources
    3. Press Sections
    4. Press Edit on top right hand corner
    5. Turn off all loading of Themes (Disable all sections that have the word theme in it. )
    6. Disable other sections if needed.
    7. Press Done
    8. Refresh Sources and see the difference.

    Also, if you get the annoying corrupted sources error and you've removed the source but it still shows up everytime you start cydia you can run cyfix.
    which can be downloaded from this repo on cydia
    omar306 Repository -

    then open terminal and use this command line

    (obviously repothatyouwanttoremove is the name of the repo you want to remove. You put that in.

    I had the same problem, Cydia was taking forever to 'Load Changes'

    My fix was this:

    1) Navigate to /private/var/lib/cydia
    2) Delete metadata.plist. Make a backup before.

    instead of deleting that file, copy it to your computer using ssh, iphonebrowser, or whatever you use and delete the packages list from metadata.plist, put back on iphone in the same location, then reboot.
    dramatically increases speed and still keeps all your cydia settings.
