    Last nite cydia failed to down load packages at startup
    Changes are blank and wont update
    No packages are showing up under manage same with sources
    If I try n install something from the featured section it states that cannot find package and a lot of waffle about refreshing and having out of date firmware

    It a 3g 8gig running 4.2.1

    This is the first time I have had any trouble
    tried deleting cydia thru iPhone explorer then reinstalling using redsnow but to no avail
    Do I need to restore and go thru whole process again
    The ph is unlocked naturally as it in NZ and Vodafone don't lock it
    Cheers for any insite.

    Have you tried restarting the device by holding down the Power+Home buttons? If nothing else works, you're going to have to restore and re-jailbreak.

    Cydia seems to be working fine from my end.

    buy pkgbackup it's had a few hiccups but it's working good again and makes jailbreaking so much easier.
