    Is there a way to clean out the repositories that have become broke when opening Cydia. It complains about bad URL now. The source repositories aren't in the list to delete.

    had the same problem. I heard that you could use cyfix which deletes the unwanted repositories. But you need to know how to use mobile terminal. Theres a video on youtube, check it out

    etc/apt/sources.list.d

    Check cydia.list for the broken repo and delete the entire line and blank space it leaves.

    just be careful, editing sources can mess up cydia pretty bad
