    On my iphone 5 7.0.6 jailbroken I had about 15 sources.


    On my brand new 5S 7.0.6 I can't add more then 7 of those 15 packages I had installed without it saying the packages are exceeded then cydia turns blank.

    Anyone know why??

    Cydia can only handle up to around 65k packages. If all your sources combined cumulatively exceeds that amount, you get that error

    If you add only legit repos, you'll pretty much never run into that error. But when you add repos related to piracy, you'll tend to run into that error

    Just really strange that I had all 15 added on my 5 but not all of the exact ones will go on my 5S.

    All those repos you had loaded on your iPhone 5 have continued adding more and more packages, so now the total number exceeds the 65K limit.
