    Suddenly cydia in my iphone 2g stopped working. When ever i press cydia,it shows loading... and exists out of application.

    I tried unistalling and installed again, same problem repeated.

    Is their any simple solution for this kind of problems like backing up whole iphone and restoring when ever things like this happens.

    i know default restore doesnot work properly.

    now i need to re unlock and install all my applications i guess !!..

    any suggestions ?

    try installing a free app.

    or try restoring through DFU mode.

    .....are you serious?

    a free application.


    Any free downloadable application from the Apple App store, which is accessible through your iPhone and iTunes, that you do not have to pay any money for.

    That's as clear as I can possibly be. If you still don't understand "free app", I can't help you at all.

    you're an idiot. the trick you're describing is related to installing ILLEGAL apps. this has nothing to do with cydia.

    ssh into your iphone, go to /var/lib/apt/lists/ and delete everything there EXCEPT the 'partial' folder. load up cydia again and wait for it to refresh.
