Cydia always does this, explain to me why?

    I open Cydia and 4 out of 5 times it shows that thing at the top "Downloading Packages" and other things but it takes like 5 minutes and if I am just scrolling through Cydia and then I find a package I like. It reloads the Cydia Data and I lose the package or it messes up my data. Is this because of a source I have.

    You may have too many sources loaded
    3G phones are slower that 3GS.

    I have sources that Cydia is checking that I don’t even have any more and are not listed in my sources. What is the plist file to edit, so that I can check to see if they’re listed there? I’ve seen it mentioned in a post here, but don’t recall where it is.

    You need to look at all the .list files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d

    It’s the Cydia.list file, which contains the old stuff. I wonder why it showed these old repos when I’ve restored and rejailbroke? Pkgbackup, perhaps?

    This is the five location I check for bad repo, your mileage might vary.


    edit:add five more, total of ten.

    I use Rock sometimes when Cydia's loading messages become too much for me. Faster anyways. :)
