    Cydia just recently started tripping out on me today. Everytime I try to I stall a package it keeps giving me an

    User/bin/Pkg error(2).

    It's driving me freaking nuts. Anyone knows what the hell this mean? TiA

    That's why I don't mess with jailbreaking. Too many problems.

    Only option is to first try a hard reset.

    If nothing, then do a system restore and jailbreak again.

    Ok, this was enough to convince me you are trying hard to troll... but I'll give you the benefit of doubt.

    Thanks, I'm just gonna restore and start over. One question:

    1. I'm on 4.1 with 1.59.00 BB, do I just use TU again and restore back with the 4.1 ispw that I downloaded?

    Do that and kiss your baseband state good bye and possibly your unlock as well.

    Yeah probably.

    Cydia needs a way to get removed from the device without resetting the iPhone.

    Then the problem would be solved. and jailbreak again without resetting anything

    Uninstall everything you got through Cydia. Then reinstall everything one by one. When you get the error, you know what is causing it.

    Good idea, hopefully you don't have too many things that you've installed from Cydia or the process would take awhile.

    I just uninstalled and reinstalled Cydia using SSH and Mobile Terminal. I was having some slightly flaky Cydia behavior but not as bad as failing to install packages. Unfortunately it didn't change the flakiness. But if you want to try, the procedure I used is described at this link:
    http://www.ipodtouchfans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=288899

    Basically the procedure is as follows:
    On your computer, download the following .deb files (or check apt.saurik.com for later ones):
    essential_0-1_iphoneos-arm.deb
    cydia_1.0.3222-73_iphoneos-arm.deb
    For convenience, shorten the names to "essential" and "cydia" (no extensions).
    Using SSH or some other method, get the files into the folder /var/stash on your i-device.
    Using Mobile Terminal or an SSH terminal, enter the following commands on your i-device:

    su
    alpine
    [or your own root password]
    apt-get remove cydia [at this point it will complain bitterly and ask you to enter "Yes, do as I say!"]
    Yes, do as I say!
    cd /var/stash
    dpkg -i essential cydia
    [or whatever names you gave the two deb files; hopefully this step will succeed!]
    Then respring or reboot your i-device.
    (Warning: removing Cydia is risky because if you can't reinstall it you will have to restore and re-jailbreak)

    If you need Mobile Terminal, a beta that works with iOS4.x is available at this repository:
