    imageFix for Cydia Crashing Problem

    A simple Mac-Roman encoded character in one of the packages file distributed via Cydia yesterday (December 28) caused a persistent crashing problem. The problem was with macciti/zodttd's source though the actual reason for the crash is believed to be Cydia's problem with decoding the characters. A message posted on the...

      I had the problem yesterday too. I assumed I accidently deleted important files or somthing. If only I had waited 1 day. :( I decided not to update with SSH and restore my phone instead. At least now all my old, unused packages are cleaned out properly. I have the 3G so every little bit helps.

      Hello everyone, I have the same problem :(. I do have mobile terminal but everytime I type /var/lib/apt/lists/. I get no such files found? Am I doing something wrong? Thank you

      Hi all,

      My iPhone is jailbroken with blackra1n, when i try to use diskaid I cant access the root folder, apparantly this is a known fault with blackra1n jailbreaks. The fix is to install afc2 service through cydia :-(

      Is there any other way of getting afc2 onto the iphone except cydia? My Cydia is bust so I need to acess the root of my iphone to fix it… but i cant because i havent got afc2! I havent got SSH either... I think I may be screwed :-(
      Any help much appreciated

      Try prefixing the /var/lib/apt/lists with cd to get

      cd /var/lib/apt/lists

      or cd\ then cd /var/lib/apt/lists

      I used WinSCP to do it via a GUI file manager however needs some config, do a google and you shall find!

    • Jon NuttJon Nutt Posts: 4

      Hi, try WinSCP if on a windows box and try that, if that fails I fear you may need to restore and re-jailbreak unless someone knows better...

      Hi,
      Thanks for your quick response.. I couldnt get WinSCP to work but I managed to install afc2 via Rock (via blackra1n) and all is sorted now :-)
      Cheers again for the advice, much appreciated.

      worked like a charm. i was wondering why my **** was crashing everytime i opened it. good thing i didnt restore!

      so easy... all you need to do is...

      1. open mobile terminal
      2. cd /var/lib/apt/lists/
      3. dir (because mine didnt have the -1 in the file name)
      4. rm cydia.zodttd.com_repo_cydia_dists_stable_main_binary-iphoneos-arm_Packages


      done!

      that was easy!

      Easy,

      It wasn't so easy for me. I did exactly like you said (thank you!) and Mobile Terminal asked me if i'm sure I want to delete write-protected regular file 'cydia.zodttd....?' I then input 'y'. Then it said 'permission denied'

      Please help! Thanks in advance.

    • SeanSean Posts: 138

      Permission denied, any solution?

    • TinusTinus Posts: 1

      Worked like a charm! thanks!

      If you get permission denied in terminal, first type su at the prompt. Then provide your root password. (hopefully not still alpine, otherwise change it)
      Then follow the instructions.

    • iphone newbieiphone newbie Posts: 3

      Sean,

      Yes, do what Tinus said below. After getting the permission denied message, type su. (press return) type your password (alpine or any other password). then quick swipe with your finger up several times and you should be able to see the long typing that you just typed earlier 'cydia.zodttd...' then press return
      and it should work (no error messages). get out and boot up cydia. works great for me ... finally!!!
      Just one newbie trying to help another (sean)

      Deleting this file cydia.zodttd-1.com_repo_cydia_dists_stable_main_binary-iphoneos-arm_Packages.
      did the trick

      su root
      cd /var/lib/apt/lists/
      rm cydia.zodt*
      reboot

      If I could suggest somthing, for those that JailBroke with BLACKRA1N.. try installing ROCK.. which will tell you all the issues with Cydia(not completely installed sources) let rock update cydia an then try restarting cydia again.. worked like a charm for me twice.. so that is
      1. install rock.
      2. let rock upgrade and create a rock id.
      3. let rock upgrade or reinstall cydia
      4. boom.. cydia works again..

    • via Wordpress

      my blackra1n is deleted as per stated in blackra1n installation guide. wonder how can i re-install back the ROCK? (Since i didnt install ROCK earlier).

      I did the Rock installation already but it wont create rock icon into iphone as well.

      really need help.
