    I opened Cydia up yesterday and there were 4 updates that I ran. I remember there was FiveRowGUI, Supreme Preferences and I don't remember the other 2. Anyways, I ran the updates and I think about half way through it, the phone rebooted. I wasn't paying attention and just saw the Apple start up logo on the screen. Now when I try to open Cydia, it crashes. Sometimes I will see a black screen and then it will crash and return back to the springboard. Sometimes I will get the icons on the bottom of the UI and the Loading Data with the spinning pinwheel and then take me back tot he springboard.

    I SFTPed in and was able to delete Supreme Preferences out of the Winterboard folder because that was my first guess at what went wrong but that didn't help. I don't think it was the FiveRowGUI because I currently have that running and it is working fine.

    So I am looking for suggestions. Any ideas on what to do to fix this problem? Is there any way I can delete Cydia on the phone via SFTP and then download it and then install it again via SFTP? Anything would be helpful.

    I would just restore phone and rejailbreak, seems to solve most issues.
