Thread: Accidentally deleted contents of /var/lib/dpkg/

    Default Accidentally deleted contents of /var/lib/dpkg/
    I was having problems with Cydia crashing, so I followed the instructions here. When I got to this line:
    Remove anything in this folder. Leave the folder, just make sure it is empty:
    I misread it, and didn't see the "/updates" part. So now I have an empty /var/lib/dpkg/ directory.

    Is there anything I can do, or am I screwed?

    I think you'll have to restore unfortunately , save your shsh if necessary!!!

    When I try to restore to 4.0.1 (which is what my phone is running), I always get an Error 21. Help?

    Apple is not signing 4.0.1 anymore, so unless you have your shsh saved you can't go to 4.0.1

    I do have it saved. I modified my hosts file to point to saurik's SHSH server, and got error 21.

    I tried using TinyUmbrella, and iTunes just stayed stuck on "Preparing iPhone for restore..." during which my iPhone reboots. It eventually gives a 1602 error.

    Use tinyumbrella to kick it out of DFU mode

    It's not in DFU mode, because it reboots as "Preparing iPhone for restore..." comes up.
