    Everytime I try to open cydia it closes out on me immediately. I tried rebooting my iPad to no avail. Am I gonna have to wipe and reinstall or is there another way?

    If you are handy with Terminal or SSH you can try this command:

    dpkg --configure -a

    I was having the same issues yesterday and this cleaned it up for me. If you are not familiar with terminal, don't do it :)

    This kept happening to me yesterday. Using ifile I went into the var/lib/dpkg/updates folder and deleted all files inside it. After that cydia stopped crashing. However, it may not be a permanent solution. The problem seems to reoccur when I reboot my ipad.

    Sweet man this worked for me but after each reboot the files come back and you have to delete them again. I'm going o use this fix until I restore for 4.2 jailbreak

    Sorry. I meant the var/lib/dpkg/updates folder. Not var/mobile.

    I'm not on 4.2. Also I don't have ifile installed so I cant. Get to it on cydia. And for some reason i can't seem to get into my iPad with cyberduck. I s ee shh on my sbsettings so it should be installed.

    If i restore my iPad and rejailbreak would I lose my saved game states for my games? What about if I got one not from the iTunes store?
