Cydia problem

image Just a short note to those like me that have problems with Cydia crashing right at startup.

The problem comes apparently from the Touch-Mania repository and is described here (in German only, sorry).

Following their steps did indeed correct the problem I had.

So I’ll give you the translation:

  • Connect to your iPhone with WinSCP / Cyberduck
  • Go to the /private/etc/apt/sources.list.d directory and delete the file touch-mania.com.list
  • Or connect via SSH and type the following: rm -rf /private/etc/apt/sources.list.d/touch-mania.com.list

This should make Cydia start again.

You’ll probably have to reinstall the Touch-Mania repository:

  • In Cydia click on search, and select for “Touch-Mania”
  • Click on Modify and then Reinstall

That did it for my iPhone…
