So ive tryed several times to remove cracktouch repo from my sources list in Cydia but Cydia just keeps saying reloading, so i have to eventually reboot my iphone which is running ios 4.3.3 jailbroken via jailbreakme.com .

Cydia shows an error that says failed to fetch pacakges, also it sometimes says error about no pacakge description or something. Im a beginner with the I device and could use help.

Ive tryed running atp-get from mobile terminal it seems to run its process but doesnt fix anything.



I've thought about trying apt-get remove , command but id like to here some of your thoughts first.

hi, i found this information just by doing a couple of searches on the internet .. 1) identify the actual error messages that cydia displays. its always important to understand what is exactly going on with your device. 2) isolate the problem. basiclly what is the exact error message displaying, 3) search for content on insanelyi repo for past reports of this nature or close to.. 4) sometimes you have to go a little further and put on that investigative reporter hat lol :laughing:. here ya go.. hope this helps ![font="""]

[font="Arial Black"]Source Error:

A common error message would be Bzip2 error or the fact that a source is not functioning correctly.

IF A REPO ONLY ACCEPTS ONE DEVICE PER ACCOUNT YOU WILL GET THIS MESSAGE IF YOU ADD MORE THAN ONE DEVICE (our repo is like this)

If you cannot remove the source from Cydia or the problem persists, try this:

Quote:
1) SSH into your device.
2) Navigate to the /etc/apt/ folder.
3) Backup the cydia.list OR sources.list.d file.
4) Edit the cydia.list OR sources.list.d file with a text editor and remove the entry related to the problematic source.
5) Reboot.
Crash After "Reloading Data":

If Cydia is crashing after the Reloading Data message then try this:
(If you don't have terminal installed, use terminal through SSH)

Quote:
1) Open Mobile Terminal/Terminal via SSH.
2) Type:

su
alpine
dpkg --configure -a

I found this article by a member from sinfulrepo. and this information was quite helpful for me. hope it helps Source Error:

I am unsure that this is a valid fix but if you try it let me know the outcome please.<br style="mso-special-character:line-break"> <br style="mso-special-character:line-break">

^ WOW that's some bad formatting who could actually understand that ?


If you trying to remove a repo from cydia and it keeps coming back you can do one of two options

Option 1, download cyfix from repo and run it in mobileterminal.

Option 2, Manually remove, this is what cyfix does, but your going to do it manually like this:

open

etc/apt/sources.list.d/cydia.list

Remove the whole line with the repo you want to get rid of.

Example: deb http://repo.com ./

Now open:

/var/lib/cydia/medadata.plist

Scroll down and find the section which the repo you want to remove

<key>deb:http://repo.com/</key>
<dict>
<key>Distribution</key>
<string>stable</string>
<key>Sections</key>
<array>
<string>main</string>
</array>
<key>Type</key>
<string>deb</string>
<key>URI</key>
<string>http://repo.com/</string>
</dict>

Remove and save. The repo is now gone from your device.

Now you can make sure everyhting is good by opening mobileterminal and running

su

pass=alpine

apt-get update
