SSH to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

You’ll see the installed by user sources (cydia.list) and the all the other sources. You may be able to just delete the file for that source (e.g., bigboss.list). I’d make a copy somewhere safe, in case you have to put it back.

Why do you want to delete a trusted source?

because i did the stefwiz, all sources file, and a couple of them are different language sources or invalid sources. so they cause errors all the time. not a huge biggie, but annoying.

so by ssh i can delete even a trusted source?

Can you delete the all trusted sources thru Manage/Packages ?

Its not a good idea to install all sources available on cydia.
Add just the repos you need. If you add 100 repos your cydia will either take 10 minutes to load or most likelly when one of the repos has a bug you wont be able to open up cydia at all.

I just did this and it worked like a charm. No more Cydia errors.
Already said that in post #2. :)

Have ever added gafoogle? I added it, then when it didn’t appear due to some error, it would keep showing up as it had errors trying to load. So, I deleted it in Cydia.list, and it still shows up from time to time.

You want a cookie or something? Your way does not work. You have to manually edit the actual "cydia.list" file to remove the errored repos. The errored repos do not appear under etc/apt/sources.list.d.

Edit: Keep in mind that I was initially replying to his post about finding the errored repos.

And I talked about that. Keep your cookie.

Trusted source (installed by package) is not a user added source. If you look through other posts I’ve made (not in this thread), you’ll see I explain how to do that, but that is not what the OP wanted.

BTW, no reason to get all irritated is there?
