    I am using cydia on my 4s using 5.1.1. This problem has just started today. Any app I install on cydia, or remove, once it gets to the final loading screen it just freezes and I have to hard reset then phone. any ideas how to fix this?

    Some Cydia repos are down/acting up today. It will eventually iron itself out.

    I have the same problem. For several days...
    I think it started when I installed "AquaBoard".

    This has nothing to do with down repos.

    Uninstall, reinstall AquaBord did not help.
    The problem persist and it is really critical.

    I tried installing AquaBoard on iPad.
    Now Cydia freeze happens here as well.

    Now I have two corrupted Cydias on two different devices.

    Cleaning up or reinstalling Cydia should fix the problem but I don't know how to this exactly.

    I will be grateful for any help.

    Thank you, Elias Limneos (author of AquaBoard) for this really bad mess.

    This is a nightmare!

    I tried:

    apt-get update

    dpkg –configure -a

    even reinstalling Cydia:

    apt-get remove cydia
    apt-get install cydia

    It still freezes on "reloading data" (only after [un/re]install) the whole phone.
    BUT if I log in by ssh and enter:

    killall -HUP SpringBoard

    It resprings so the freeze is not a real critical hang.
    But still the problem persists.

    And there is a new suspect -> "Powerleft"

    Powerleft or AquaBoard caused this.

    Any help?

    Because I was wrong.

    I finally discovered the fault...

    StatusBulletin... That package caused the problem.

    Im having the same issue and i do not have StatusBulletin. did uninstalling the app that caused the issue (statusbulletin in your case) solve the issue? if so i guess i will start deleting apps until it stops

    ok... edit...

    for me it was Pandora Downloader. as soon as i removed its working properly now.
