    Hello fellow jailbreakers.

    Familiar to the jailbreak scene dating back to iOS 1.x.

    Have been messing around with evasi0n 7 and the difficulties involving an outdated Mobile Substrate.

    Only 10 minutes ago, I saw a new package on my refreshed list of Changes in Cydia entitled "My favorite repo sources". I normally like having a multitude of choices, and normally these install a lot of options. After it was done installing, on the Database screen, 3 red errors show:

    "Wow, you exceeded the number of package names this APT is capable of"
    "Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/..."
    "The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened".

    Now, there are no options under Sections, Changes, or Manage -> Packages. The only populated list is under Sources, where I can see the sources that this "my favorite repo sources" package installed, but I cannot manually delete them because I need to remove that package to have them removed. I have tried respringing and rebooting to no avail.

    This is definitely a very very fresh problem, but I am hoping someone else has ran into it as well.

    I had the same problem. I has to remove some repos. Xs**illese was the one that caused it.

    SimsDelt, when I installed the package "my favorite repo sources", they are lodged into the Sources list and cannot be deleted. They can only be removed by removing the original package.

    Are you saying that on the Sources tab, you pressed "Edit" in the top right and deleted any of the sources that gave you the option to?

    EDIT: SimsDelt fix worked. If anyone downloads the package "All of my favorite repos" and it causes your Manage and Changes lists to go blank, delete a pre-installed Source in the Manage tab to bring back your lists.

    I added mine manually and got that error too. So it seems it's one of the repos that is causing it.

    I think I am just going to write down all the repos it installed, delete the package, and then manually add them one by one.
