    hi all im veryu new to this forum and new to the jailbreak community. i was wondering if someone could help me with a few questions i have.

    i recently used jailbreakme 2.0 for my iphone 3gs 4.1. and have had just a few minor issues that i would like to fix.

    the first question i have is, if i accidently deleted a source how does that impact any of the packages i have from cydia? i only have just a few packages fontswap/blacklist/winterboard/ and a few tweaks.

    if a source is deleted will that not allow the corresponding package/app to run appropriately?

    can i delete all sources? if so what will that do.

    next i got the tweak to run seconds on my lock screen clock and a new font for the numbers and now my ipod controls (left arrow right arrow with slider) sometimes pops up and randomly sits under the date. i since have removed the seconds tweak but it still pops up there.

    the font im using for the clock is defused. i have now noticed that i need to hit my home buttom twice to pop up the lock screen. is that normal?

    ok last question would it be a good thing to restore phone and then re-jailbreak?

    im sorry for my noob status.

    thanks in advance for any help.

    It doesn't impact the packages except for when upgrades are available.

    No.

    Cydia won't be able to find anything for you. You won't see anything in "Categories".

    next i got the tweak to run seconds on my lock screen clock and a new font for the numbers and now my ipod controls (left arrow right arrow with slider) sometimes pops up and randomly sits under the date. i since have removed the seconds tweak but it still pops up there.

    Don't have an answer for you.

    ok last question would it be a good thing to restore phone and then re-jailbreak?
    Question is, why would you do that? Restore and reJB will make you start from scratch. Although I suppose that is better if you've downloaded and deleted a lot of apps on your phone. Think of this as being similar to doing a clean install of an OS.

    im sorry for my noob status.

    thanks in advance for any help.
    See the answers in red.
