    I have iPhone 4 iOS 5.0.1 and i installed a couple of cydia updates then reboot my phone and now cydia wont open, i rebooted it dozen of times, dont know what else to do. I dont want to restore and lose everything, is there any way to fix this without restoring or losing any files?

    Do you have sbsettings installed?

    You can go into safemode with sbsettings, than your installed package are not loaded and cydia should start.

    Alternatively you can follow this procedure:

    Download ifunbox (mac or windows) this wil allow access from external computer to your iphone file structure, after that:
    Navigate to /private/etc/apt/sources.list.d

    Delete the file "cydia.list"

    Navigate to /var/lib/apt/lists

    Delete all of the files in this folder except the one called "lock"

    Navigate to /var/lib/apt/lists/partial

    Delete all of the files in this folder

    Navigate to /var/lib/cydia

    Delete the file "metadata.plist"

    Restart Cydia. You should be at the first screen you saw when you first started Cydia: What kind of user are you? Make your selection and Cydia will re-generate the default sources.

    Sam thing happened to me last week. I just jailbroke again and all was good. Kept everything intact...apps, folders, settings, etc. Can't guarantee it will be so smooth for everyone, however.
