    Default Cydia stopped working, is there anyway to remove it completely and reinstall?

    It just stopped working since last night..
    It launches, before it starts the "Loading data", it crashes and back to the springboard.

    I tried to delete every file in /var/lib/apt/lists/ except the partial folder.
    I tried to remove cydia with "apt-get remove cydia" and then reinstall cydia and essential deb

    However, both does not work.

    I took a look after I did the reinstall, all my previous data/sources file are still in my phone.

    Is there a way to complete remove cydia, so that I can install a fresh copy of cydia?

    I don't want to restore my phone.

    Anyone could help? Thanks in advance!

    It's not such a good idea to actually remove Cydia

    you could try
    Code:
    dpkg -r cydia

    The last thing I do before it start to crash is install a theme. I found out the theme was installed as /var/theme/xxx.theme/xxx.theme/
    So I manually move the file back to /var/theme/xxx.theme/

    Then it starts to crash.. will it be package/source error that causes it to crash?
    Thats why I want to completely remove it and reinstall
    dpkg -r cydia does not work..

    I have crashreporter installed, but it crashes when I try to view the crash log of it..

    I am going to try redsn0w after I got back home.
    redsn0w didnt work as well =(
