    Hi guys there is a GUI named iphonebrowser, with that you can go to the path that you want, copy the file onto you desktop, update it and then copy back into the phone with the iphonebrowser, that it the source you want is removed.

    Thank you. I've been searching my phone for a way to delete the erred sources for months. I used phone disc to access my root and deleted the bad sources using text editor. One re-spring and I was back to normal.

    THANKS!

    I did exactly like u said and i got an error like this when i opened cydia, "malformed line 2 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cydia.list (dist)" .. it was unlocked and now its gone. I'm scared that i might loose the unlock.
    i have iphone 4 , 4.0.2 and 1.59 BB

    Please help please help.


    YOU MUST HAVE OPENSSH INSTALLED, AND YOU MUST KNOW HOW TO ACCESS YOUR IPHONE OR IPODS DATABASE THROUGH AN SFTP CLIENT.

    If you added a source that causes Cydia to crash, this is the thread for you. This will help you remove the buggy source you added.

    You will need an ftp/sftp client. [WinSCP for Windows/Cyberduck for Mac]

    1. SSH into your iPhone/iPod, hopefully you know how to do that.

    2. Go to the root of your iPhone/iPod [/].

    3. Navigate to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cydia.list

    4. Download the Cydia.list to your computer and open it using any text editor.

    5. Delete the source you added. For example, "deb http://www.iphone.org.hk/apt/ ./" if this is the source you want to delete, simply delete that one line. NOT THE WHOLE DOCUMENT. Make sure you save the document as is. We are NOT adding any extensions.

    6. Drag the saved document into the sources.list.d folder and replace the file.

    7. Respring.

    ALL DONE!
