    There's no queue but when I try to install/uninstall/upgrade it shows that installing sbsettings is in my queue. I tried respringing and rebooting.

    Just install it, then if you wish, remove it.
    Should clear it out,

    Something you installed have SBSettings as dependency, check what you got installed and see what could it be, maybe a theme, or addon

    (it could be anything on here but not limited to:

    • libhide
    • Activator
    • PreferenceLoader
    )

    No. I don't even know what that is.

    Anything I try to install does this. I randomly tried installing a number of themes/tweaks from Changes.

    I understand, it seen tobe something you already got installed, when a package i update or manually installed (there are other reasons) and a dependency is NOT installed, Cydia will try to installed the next time it runs any installing, that is why you see it trying to install when you do anything.

    In order to solve this, is: one, installing it and removing (as DHlizard already said), but you don't want to do that, second option is to track down which app is requiring sbsetting as dependency and uninstall that. Third, you need a fresh install (re-flash firmware and re-jailbreak)

    Last thing I installed and this started happening was Avellino deluxe, a theme. I'll try uninstalling it and see. If not then screw it I'll just install sbsettings.

    Edit: strangely enough when I went to uninstall avellino there was nothing else in the queue. This theme has been nothing but trouble. It's a shame cause it's such a beautiful theme.

    Thanks everyone for the help.

    If SBSsetting is a Dependency of that theme, make sense it doesn't show up when you try ti uninstall it, since it is not required anymore.

    You should contact the developer and let him/her know about this dependency, since that is a paid theme.

    Yeah I have. It's weird that it doesn't mention it's a dependency in the queue though. I thought it usually did?

    Yes that is the typical behavior. For example, when you go to install something, if it has a package listed as a dependency, that additional package will be installed at the same time as the original intended package.

    Perhaps the theme includes an SBSettings theme, so that might be a cause for it wanting to install SBSettings.

    Many complete themes include themes for things other than the Lockscreen and Springboard pages.
