    Default Cydia not working :(

    I get this error message when I tried to run Cydia from the terminal (it just craches when I do that from the spring board).

    _assert(13:errno == ENOENT)@Cydia.mm:5809[main]


    I tried to install (copy the application from another working phone) but still doesnt work

    What to do? I know like a last resort I prolly should reinstall my phone ...but just wondering if theres any easy fix for that.


    Thanks!

    i have had same problem..

    open terminal on the iphone
    then su > alpine

    then write :
    apt-get remove cydia
    - then to confirm you have to write exactly the phrase the program wants... ex ' yes do what i say to you! ( or something similar')

    apt-get update

    apt-get install cydia

    finally close terminal, respring and try launching cydia again

    it worked for me

    thanks bro, but I think I messed it up already... it gives me an error "Unable to look administration directory /var/lib/dpkg/"

    theres nothing in /var/lib/ anymore... I cant remember if I removed it or its just empty

    I'm having the same problem but when I write:

    apt-get remove cydia

    I get the error:

    Reading package lists... Error!
    E: Could not open file /var/lib/dpkg/status - open (2 No such file or directory)
    E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

    Any suggestions?

    Well I'm feeling pretty please with myself now. I'm sure that those of you with more Unix experience will probably laugh at my n00bness but I managed to get it working.

    In case anyone else has the same problem here's what I did:
    Went to /var/lib/dpkg/ and sure enough, there was no status file. There was a status-old and a status_ however. status_ was mostly empty, with just a few lines of information at the top. status-old had details on several of my installed programs. I copied status-old to status and then followed the steps in an above post to reinstall cydia. Voila, it works.
