    Default Help! CYDIA unaccessible
    My wife added the source repo.sleepers.net/cydia/ by going to Cydia->Management->Add Source and put it in manually. It installed and then the entire iphone crashed, i.e. rebooted itself. Now when she tries to access Cydia it crashed before it even loads. I got to it through WinSCP and that source is not in the cydia source folder. How can i get her Cydia to work again?

    Try running Quickpwn to rejailbreak which will install a clean version of Cydia.

    So rejailbreak to overwrite the messed up Cydia?

    No you do not have to rejailbreak.

    All you have to do is ssh into your phone and go to /apt/lib/list. Delete every source in the folder. This will only delete the corrupted repo and restore all the other ones.

    I've done this multiple times with success

    i tried it without success. I went to lib/apt/list and deleted it all and then tried to run the app. It didn't work so i rebooted and tried it again, with no success.

    yeah, i deleted everything in that folder but it didn't help.
    But now i'm wondering if that's the problem.

    My own Cydia isn't working for my phone either and I didn't add the same Source as she did. It won't load at work( it's on EDGE then) or at home on wifi. Her Cydia won't even load before it crashes. My Cydia loads up and then if i try to scroll it crashes.
