    Whenever I type the letter "T" in Cydia it crashes. When I try to see what I've installed that starts with the letter T the program just crashes but I can do everything else without problems. I've tried SSHing into my phone but I don't really know where I need to go. I've tried deleting any repos that I manually input because I read in other forums that sometimes doing this will fix the problem. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also if someone can tell the directory path in SSH to see everything installed within my cydia app. I'm using an iPhone 4 with OS 4.1. Thanks in advance.

    Searching for the letter T works fine here.
    What version Cydia are you on?

    Looks like your correct. I have cydia version 1.0.3366-1. Thanks for posting the link for the update. Is their a repository that I can add so I can download the newest version from within cydia? If not then could you give me directions at to what I need to do to update it with SSH? Many thanks in advance!

    Repo not updated :-(

    Thanks for the repo applejuiced. I added it to my Cydia but unfortunately its still giving me the current version of Cydia to download (not the new version) :-( hopefully it will update shortly because these crashing problems are driving me crazy. Thanks for you current help as well as any other tips or suggestions in the future.

    Totally! I know what you mean. Let's just leave this area, c'mon I'll get the door for us... you first... (slam!)



    Ok, Thinkgreen216, here's how to add the .deb file through SSH:
    Navigate to /var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall/
    (if you don't have the Cydia/AutoInstall folders just make them and add them)

    Next, drop the .deb file posted above into the AutoInstall folder and Respring (might require a reboot)
    Done!

    Hmmm... SSH

    Thanks THE dAY. Now I have one more dumb question for you. You stated that if I don't have the cydia/autoinstall folders to just create them. Please forgive my weak SSH skill level but is it as simple as creating a folder called autoinstall and placing it in the directory as you listed? If it's more than that can you give more details? I greatly appreciate everyone on here's help. This is my fourth iPhone in 3 years and I've always kinda shyed away from SSH (mostly out of fear of really messing stuff up) but I think it's time i need to just go for it! Many thanks in advance for everyones help!

    Im sorry, I just noted 1.0.3366-1 Cydia is the latest version.
    If its still giving you problems I'd try a restore and rejailbreak if you can.
