    Anyone else have this problem? The only thing I've been able to successfully install is SBSettings. Everything else I get "Size mismatch" at some point or another during installation.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Very Helpful. I also lost my pictures after the JB. Nothing important but I was just wondering if there's a way to get them back? I remember it being talked about when the JB was first released for Macs.

    I can't be the only one that's having this problem?

    Yes, I did. That doesn't really bother me though what I really want to know is why I can't install anything on Cydia. Well nearly anything.

    I downloaded a few paid & free apps on Cydia and got the size mismatch error while installing MyWi. I was able to install a different paid app afterwards. I bummed because MyWi was THE reason I jailbroke.

    When I first jailbroke it for the first 10-15 mins I had this problem, I turned phone off for ten and when it came back all was good

    Rebooted my phone again and still not working. This is extremely frustrating.

    Those of you who lost your camera roll should have performed a backup/sync prior to jailbreaking. Every jailbreaking tool makes that recommendation.

    As far as your Cydia being corrupted, the very best fix is a clean restore, choose set up as new. Jailbreak with Absinthe 2.0.4 immediately.
    Open Cydia, allow it to re-organize (be patient, it will auto close when done)
    Then re-open it and start modding.
