    Ive been searching an unable to find an answer to this. I have two sources that cydia keeps telling me are unreachable. The problem is that they are not showing up under sources so I have no idea how to tell cydia to stop looking at them. is there a way to clear that?

    I take no credit for this but it worked for me. The original source link in included as well.

    YOU MUST HAVE OPENSSH INSTALLED, AND YOU MUST KNOW HOW TO ACCESS YOUR IPHONE OR IPODS DATABASE THROUGH AN SFTP CLIENT.

    If you added a source that causes Cydia to crash, this is the thread for you. This will help you remove the buggy source you added.

    You will need an ftp/sftp client. [WinSCP for Windows/Cyberduck for Mac]

    1. SSH into your iPhone/iPod, hopefully you know how to do that.

    2. Go to the root of your iPhone/iPod [/].

    3. Navigate to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cydia.list

    4. Download the Cydia.list to your computer and open it using any text editor.

    5. Delete the source you added. For example, "deb http://www.iphone.org.hk/apt/ ./" if this is the source you want to delete, simply delete that one line. NOT THE WHOLE DOCUMENT. Make sure you save the document as is. We are NOT adding any extensions.

    6. Drag the saved document into the sources.list.d folder and replace the file.

    7. Respring.

    ALL DONE!
