    Dear all,

    Cydia keeps crashing after the "loading data" screen. The logs only show the following:

    2010-06-07 16:15:53.277 Cydia_[83:a0b] Setting Language: en

    I have tried quite a few methods but none seems to work.

    Here are some details:
    OS version: 3.1.2
    Jailbroken with Blackra1n
    OpenSSH installed

    What I have tried so far:

    Delete the files under /var/lib/apt/lists
    Done that using WinSCP. After deleting, when I launch Cydia, it comes up with the following errors before crashing again:

    W:[Failed to fetch http://repo.smxy.org/cydia/apt/dists/xena/Release.gpg NetDB: Open nodename nor servname provided, or not known]
    W:[Failed to fetch http://repo.smxy.org/cydia/apt/dists/xena/main/i18n/Translation-en.bz2 NetDB: Open nodename nor servname provided, or not known]
    W:[Failed to fetch http://repo.smxy.org/cydia/apt/dists/xena/main/binary-iphoneos-arm/Packages NetDB: Open nodename nor servname provided, or not known]
    E:[Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.]

    Delete the ZodTTD repository under /private/etc/apt/sources.list.d

    Did not work either.

    Any help?

    Well, I finally found the issue. It turns out I needed to update Cydia which I did through Rock.

    Yeah, it's chicken & egg

    Rock does not show up in my Cydia, so I can't install it and use it to fix my Cydia, which is also stuck at the "Updating Database" point. I'm pretty much stuck here. :mad:
