    Whenever I open Cydia, the apple boot logo and progress bar appears and the screen starts flickering like crazy. It then goes to a black screen for about 15 seconds and the progress bar begins to fill up, before finally crashing back to the home screen with the apple logo and progress bar superimposed on top of everything. Anybody know what's happening here?

    I left it alone on mines, it finished in a few minutes and the phone worked fine after that. Have patience

    An update for big boss was released earlier this morning. Prior to that I was getting errors.

    Big Boss is blank for me as well, and I think that is where I need to get PkgBackup from so I can get my Cydia apps reloaded.

    Anyone get Big Boss to load yet??

    I'm getting the same for all my repos including the saurk repo big boss and modmy. Infact almost all are blank. Can't reload and keep getting error 1.1 404 not found

    Actually all the Cydia default repos are empty and reloading them is doing nothing. :(

    Big Boss Finally Loaded

    I had to kill Cydia via the multi-task bar, but this last time Cydia opened up it loaded Big Boss. I'm sure it's just getting slammed.

    Now I'm trying to get PkgBackup to restore everything, but my "restore" button isn't doing anything. I've re-entered by DropBox link and it's recognized, but that's as far as she gets!

    Mine did the same thing. I thought I really screwed something up! But, just let it do its thing, rebooted and everything's been fine since.

    I've had trouble downloading certain things but I'm sure it's just cause Cydia's getting slammed like others have said.

    Same thing happened to me. Restarted twice and it finally worked - BigBoss is definitely being hit by some major traffic

    I'm having a completely different problem with Cydia. Every time I reboot or respring the Cydia app moves back to the second page from the folder I keep putting it in. It's is quite annoying.

    This happened to me each time I tried to get to my cydia profile to install purchased packages. I got the flickering and the apple logo came up. I let it run its course and then once i could I installed a program. After a respring it didn't happen again and my Cydia icon was no longer just a white block. Hope this helps.
