Hi guys. I got 2 problems, every time I load cydia up I get an error that says "some indexed files failed to download, they have been ignored or old ones have been used instead." I've linked a screenshot in so you can see what it was trying to load.

And my last problem is every time I try to download a new tweek or app from cydia I get the "size mismatch" error.

I am useing the iPhone 3GS on iOS 6.1.2 (obviously jail broken) with evasi0n.

I have no idea how to solve these, all help is greatly appreciated.

Many thanks, napster100

I did add a screenshot but it looks like it hasn't loaded, not to sure but I'm doing this on my iPhone now and I can't see it. So this is what it was loading at startup "GPG error: http://apt.thebigboss.org stable Release:
The following signatures were invalid: NODATA 1 NODATA 2.

Failed to fetch
http://apt.thebigboss.org/repofiles/cydia/dists/stable/main/binary-iphoneos-arm/packages.bz2 sub-process /bin/bzip2 returned an error code (2)"

That's all it said.

One, you can't post a pic because you are new.

Two, I haven't seen that particular error message before. But it seems to be a mess when it happens. It's usually a particular item, is it happening to you for any download?

The fact that it gives an error when simply loading Cydia suggests that reinstalling Cydia is the answer, which means re-jailbreaking. Although giving Cydia some time seems to work, you could try waiting a couple days.

Yes, I've had many reboots and resprings. I've found that removing thebigboss repo solves problem with the indexed files loaded. But since that is a default repo and contains many tweeks and apps I thought I should re-add it and the problem comes back. But it's been doing this for about a week now so if it was the repo's problem I should of been fixed by now right? My next thought is to re-jailbreak but I can't do that until tonight and I don't want to lose all my current tweaks and apps though.

One or more of your repos are either down or slow.

Have you added any repos yourself recently ?

Usually this resolves itself or is resolved by removing added repos
