    When I open Cydia, no sources shows up and when I try t.o add one this error shows up.

    could not open file /var/lib/dpkg/status - open (2 no such file or directory) the package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened

    anyone know any solutions?

    You're not restoring it then.
    Plug it to itunes and hit restore.

    This resolved the issue for me,
    I restored the device using a computer, not by deleting all data option, in the general tab in settings on the device (didn't work any of the three times i tried).

    Hey doc, I think I have the same problem. I tried 2 different computers and have a cydia and the pangu thing show up but empty. Everytime I restore by using the ios settings. It comes back as normal, that means I give up, then when i restore from back up to get my pictures, it just came back with those 2 empty also. Your telling me just restore it with the comp using a 9.3.3 ios and it will be ok, then jailbreak it again? I have a Ipad air 2.

    Erase all data on the device itself in settings is not restoring.
    A restore is only done by plugging to itunes and hitting restore.

    Yes.
    You were not restoring it before.
    Doing an erase all on the device itself is not a restore.

    I do the erase all, comes back new and fresh. But then the jailbreak just gives me the pangu icon. I click it, it doesn't give the option to uncheck something people talk about on the videos. So I just press the circle, press the sleep/wakes button, the lock screen displays what it suppose to when it's working. Then just comes back with no Cydia

    I give up.
    You clearly cannot follow directions.

    So I'm running into this same problem. I erased all settings on my device and restored a backup. And now I'm getting this cydia permissions error.

    I thought the fix was to restore a backup, but if I need to do a device restore, and through iTunes, then I think I may be screwed, because that will now force me to upgrade to 9.3.4. Is there another way, or am I overlooking a way to do this restore through iTunes without upgrading?

    Thanks -Keith

    9.3.3 is still being signed. Just download it from the link and once downloaded plug in the device and put it into DFU mode and then when it asks to search for an update for the identified device to restore, select cancel. From there you'll see the button to Restore. Hold shift before pressing restore and then it'll let you choose the IPSW file for your device and 9.3.3. After that let it finish restoring and you're on 9.3.3.

    You know, just moments before I saw this, I finally remembered I can select the IPSW file. D'oh! Tired brain after struggling with this JB (always stresses me out). I'm in the middle of a second attempt -- I didn't put it into DFU mode first, so I'll find out in a few hours if I need a third attempt. (First order of business when this is done: delete about half my apps. These restores take WAY too long.)

    Thanks for the very thorough reply - and to a MF newbie, no less. :)

    ;) No problem. Hope you get it working and I know what you mean about the apps. I saw mine tonight and almost laughed at how many pile up!

    Just want to update for others following the thread that this did the trick. (DFU mode was not necessary.) Cydia is up and running, and I have a working jailbreak. Thanks again for the help!

    Glad it worked and you got in before they close it.

    And remember all newbie Jailbreakers.
    Do not do an erase all on your jb device. Ever.
    You will need a restore if you do that and iOS 9.3.3 will not be signed for much longer so you will be back to stock version and no way to jb again.

    when you erase all data on a jb phone you screw it up and need to restore the device.

    Darn, I ended up doing it, boy do I feel dumb now. I knew what I was doing didn't make sense. Now I keep getting the database error with the cannot open file /var/lib.... message. How can I make Cydia work again?

    Wow, you are a destructor:)
    Not sure if you can restore to 9.3.3 any more.
    Most likely you're going to have to go to stock iOS 9.3.4
    Some people are better off on official iOS version. This jailbreaking stuff is not for everyone...

    I'm having an issue...

    So, my Verizon 5s can't restore via the 9.3.3 IPSW. However, my Verizon 6 restored to 9.3.3 with the IPSW just fine. Odd.

    Not funny! I've been jail breaking my devices for many years and never had a problem I couldn't solve. I just need to continue looking for a solution and try the ipsw file mentioned earlier. Oh well, life goes on!

    If you were really jailbreaking for years you'd at least know the most basic thing not to do since the iPhone 3GS jb days.
    You never do an erase all on jb devices. Never, ever...
