    I'm trying to download Sbsettings but bigboss isn't showing up -.-

    I checked the list.d folder and there is bigboss and it does have the deb file URL.

    I jailbroke my iPhone on 4.2.1 last night and bigboss was there, just jb my iPod on 4.2.1 and it isn't.

    Does it have this in it?

    "# do not edit this file to add your own custom sources
    # this file is subject to be upgraded as part of a package
    # either add your own .list file to /etc/apt/sources.list.d
    # or add your entry to the global /etc/apt/sources.list file

    deb stable main"

    Are the user permissions read and write, group and world should be read. Ownership for owner should be root.

    I'm having a similar problem. My Bigboss repo doesn't show (though it says installed) and ontop of that my modmyi Repo shows but reports a cache error and so does the bigboss repo EVEN THOUGH the bb repo doesn't show it's installed.

    I checked my modmyi repo list.d file and it looks similar to what you posted @steven. How would I change user permissions?

    Would that cause BigBoss repo not to show at all though?

    This happened to me on my iPad. I just ran redsn0w again to re-install cydia and it was there when I opened it.

    This happened to me, i think it's just an error with Cydia's server, as it seemed to fix itself.

    I did restart the device and download another source set, but i don't think either of those fixed the issue.
