I have deleted the source and reinstalled it but it's still not showing.
I am using a iPad Air if that makes any difference

Can you try this and see if it makes a difference?


Tap the “Cydia” app icon on the iPhone home scree
Select the “Manage” tab.
Tap the “Settings” button.
Select Developer if its not.

I don't know if thats gonna make any difference. The fact its and iPad air shouldn't matter

Also try to search for XBMC-iOS if you haven't already. I know you most likely already did. I will say there are other repo's that have that file.

Just added the repo and installed the xbmc app fine on my tethered iphone 4. Maybe its an internet issue? Or possibly a Cydia issue - could run icleaner on it, but I don't have much experience with that. Eitherway I don't think its an issue on xbmc side of things.

All sorted now.
After a lot of googling and coming up with nothing.
I used icleaner and deleted cydia lists in ifile.
Opened Cydia and my sources were reset.
Started adding my sources again and XBMC was showing both again.

Bit of a strange one now.
I added Yang Repo ( yangapp.googlecode.com/svn/ )

Checked XBMC repo again and it was just showing iconpack only.
Deleted above repo and had both again.

Anyone had anything like this happen to them

What you've seen is very common: if two repos host a file with the same package name (but not necessarily the same content), one of them will be hidden. This is why XBMC was hidden in the official repo.

I've also mentioned this fact in my post at http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p=18623444&postcount=410
