    So this is another typical cydia crashes on startup thread.

    I know.

    I've read through as many as I could, deleted the lists and such with no luck in being able to open cydia.

    To be more specific, I've gone through I've done this...

    1. SSH into your IPhone.
    2. Navigate to etc/apt/sources.list.d
    3. find the file cydia.list
    4. If you are using WinSCP, right click onit and select EDIT
    5. Delete : deb http://cydia.any source.com/ ./
    6. Save and exit.
    Working here now 100%, used iFile on my device
    Navigate to the /var/lib/apt/lists/ folder. Delete the 3 x zodttd files
    Navigate to /private/etc/apt/sources.list.d Delete the zodttd file
    Then launch cydia.
    Now, I know the exact thing that caused this to crash. I assume if I am able to delete all records about that, it will fix the issue. Question is, how do I find that file and delete it?

    I know theres gotta be a way to fix this without a restore.

    If it's because you have a bad source, you need to edit it out of the metadata.plist file located at /var/lib/cydia.

    You can kinda by looking at the other sources see what needs to be removed from the file. If you copy it over and do it on your comp, make sure you note down the file permissions so they're the same after the edit.

    Ok so the file I was downloading which I assume corrupted my phone was ihtc something.

    Followed all instructions on [ame=http://www.underground.mn/showthread.php?p=501376]Getting Rid of Bad Cydia Sources for Jailbreak iPhone - UnderGround Forum[/ame] deleting all references to ihtc, and it still doesnt work. Is there a "checker" per say to see what I missed if anything...or am I screwed and need to restore?
