    So this is a weird thing that has been happening lately. I can scroll through my packages fine, but when I get to "I", Cydia crashes and closes. If I tap the "I", the same thing happens. I can tap any letter after that, and it runs fine.

    Has this happened to anyone before? What can I do?

    EDIT: It was iFlat 2.

    That's....weird. To be honest, the amount of times I've had to reinstall bloody Cydia or do a full restore due to it not working right....grrrrr. At the moment, my current Cydia problem is that it takes minutes to load up "Changes". As in, it loads forever unless I stop it (sometimes it will load Changes up, after about 10-20 minutes)

    Try this (apt-get command was removed in one of the later firmwares, so if Terminal doesn't recognise it, this does nothing :()

    1) Make sure you've got OpenSSH

    2) SSH into iPhone root, make sure you've got MobileTerminal installed

    3) Open MobileTerminal, and type this:

    su

    alpine (or whatever your password is)

    apt-get remove cydia

    apt-get install cydia

    This has fixed some Cydia errors for me at least. Good luck!

    Kind of helpful kind of not. Its tough to see what app is what in the text file when theyre all com.whatever.whatever.whatever.


    Still trying to fix it.

    Log in as root in Terminal v511. Enter command dpkg -l. Look for that i package. Remove it with dpkg -r com.blahblah.blahblah

    Thats very tough to do when "com.blahblah" takes up the text line and I cant see package names.

    If u know what package is causing it, try to google search the repo or source. Sometimes you'll find the .deb and then download to ur pc, open it up and search in the info.plist for the com._____._____.
    Good luck bro, I had the same issue a couple days ago and this is how I recovered.
