You can't except to wait until there's not a bazillion people hammering the servers constantly. Keep trying, it'll work eventually.

you just have to wait, there is nothing else wrong but the server are busy.

Remember this are 'donations' maintained servers, unless you donate enough to keep a full dedicated server up and running with massive bandwidth all you can do is wait

No, the issue isn't that the server is busy... there's a glitch in Cydia that when you add a source that's mis-spelled, or a source that's buggy and then delete it, it really doesn't delete, because even if you remove it from source list, and remove all apps from the source out of packages, it still tries to check that source, causing the error on every Cydia load.

This was an issue back in the 3.0 days but it got fixed, so not sure what's going on that it's back, but it is.... so stop trying to say it's because servers are busy... add http://cydia.yourmomisugly.com/repo, then delete it, and see how "busy" the servers are then... it'll do the same thing. Sources that are deleted don't get deleted, so the OP is asking for an alternative way to stop cydia from checking long-gone sources.

When you add a source, cydia goes and check the url you just enter if it cannot reach a valid repository it doesn't let you add it.

Unless the repo have been move i don't see that happening.

It happens. How about you try and do it. Cause I just did and it works fine.

Get rid of troublesome Cydia source

Remove Cydia Sources through SSH. Open SSH must be installed on phone.

If you added a source that causes Cydia to crash, this is the thread for you. This will help you remove the buggy source you added.

You will need an ftp/sftp client. [WinSCP for Windows/Cyberduck for Mac]

1. SSH into your iPhone/iPod, hopefully you know how to do that.

2. Go to the root of your iPhone/iPod [/].

3. Navigate to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cydia.list

4. Download the Cydia.list to your computer and open it using any text editor.

5. Delete the source you added. For example, "deb http://www.iphone.org.hk/apt/ ./" if this is the source you want to delete, simply delete that one line. NOT THE WHOLE DOCUMENT. Make sure you save the document as is. We are NOT adding any extensions.

6. Drag the saved document into the sources.list.d folder and replace the file.

7. Re-spring.

It's done via wi-fi and the only thing you need to download on your phone is OpenSSH which can be found in Cydia

i got openssh in cydia but now cant find it on my iphone4
There is no app or settings menu for it, if you have installed it then you are good to go, if you do want to turn it on and ff once you have finished fixing your Cydia error then you can just use SBSettings, alternatively you can just uninstall it when you are down with the guide if you don't plan on SSHing into your phone again
