    Default trying to reinstall cydia... but open terminal keeps losing communication

    okay....... so heres a list of events that happened over trying to do stuff on cydia..

    1. i tried adding a new source, but it always got stuck on "downloading packages" and never resolves. usually to get out of it i have to restart myiphone. this pretty much happens for every source i try adding

    2. i read somewhere that i can go into var/lib/apt to delete everything in there except for the partial folder. i deleted the stuff inside the partial folder by accident though =/ not sure if that had another effect

    3. so it still gets stuck on downloading packages, and i also lost all my sources from before. i've decided to try and just reinstallcydia instead.

    4. seems like one of the solutions for reinstalling cydia are:
    1) Open Terminal on your device or through SSH
    2) Type the following commands:

    su
    alpine
    apt-get remove cydia
    apt-get install cydia

    3) Reboot

    ... but every command i type into winSCP open terminal i get this message saying "Host is not communicating for more than 15 seconds. Still waiting..."

    =(... is there any way to reinstall cydia without SSH? im not sure if a method using cydia would work because i lost all my repos (even the ones that came with cydia).

    hopefully there is a way to fix my open terminal problem instead?

    any suggestions? =(

    I really think you are stuck..

    Try this... backup your iPhone with iTunes (make a copy of that backup and keep it in a safe place). Restore the iPhone then restore the backup and then jailbreak with redsn0w.

    No you are likely out of luck there, especially due to the way you incorrectly tried to fix this problem earlier.

    Even if is possible to fix this... but it really is not worth it.. Anything you paid for in the app store or cydia store can be re downloaded for free. You waste a lot of time troubleshooting something (badly so far) that could be better used reinstalling afterwards.

    If you do a sync/backup and then keep the backup safe, you still have all the files from your iPhone on your computer, you can extract them out with various tools and selectively restore them.
