    I keep getting this error once I start Cydia, I cant search anything or download.

    Message:

    "The package com.memdefrag needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it."

    whats going on?

    Try uninstalling the memory defrag app/tweak or reinstall it?

    Are you able to see the packages you have installed when inside cydia?

    if you have ifile, you can download the mobileterminal deb file here and install it: http://apt.thebigboss.org/repofiles/cydia/debs2.0/mobileterminal_520-2.deb

    if you don't have ifile, you could use something like ifunbox to help you install the deb file

    from the link given above: http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/72333-com-memdefrag-error.html
    i'm sure the person meant SSH, not SHSH (for those who don't know and are confused)

    yes, download with safari and click open with ifile or something like that. once it opens with ifile, just click installer when the ifile opens and the options pop up and it'll install mobileterminal. you can delete the deb file afterwards (it'll go to the "trash" folder by default (i think_ when deleting with ifile so you'll want to delete it from the trash folder if you want the free space back)

    after you install mobile terminal, you need to run the command link to remove this offending package

    Pretty much any time you install a deb file via iFile you need to respring. Just a little heads up for the future :D

    Correct, Cydia prompts you automatically, with ifile you have to do it yourself.
