    Anyone have an issue reinstalling activator or big boss tweaks after updating to 7.0.6? Activator has dependencies preventing its installation, and eclipse, night mode, and others just don't show up. I'm at a loss here…

    I'm having this same issue can't seem to figure out what the problem is.

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated

    This topic recently came up in #iphonedev on I speculated that Cydia's cache got out of whack with the state of the packages that the underlying package manager (apt) knew about. The procedure to correct this is straightforward but will require you to tinker with some of the files the Cydia stores on your iOS device.

    I recommended the following steps.

    Cydia stores the "Release" files (the repository package lists) in /var/lib/apt/lists
    Make sure Cydia is closed
    You need to delete all files with the following TWO exceptions: lock (file) and partial (directory).
    Once the files are deleted, re-open Cydia.
    Cydia will then re-download all of the Release files from the various repositories
    When it says "reloading data", Cydia is resolving the packages from the repositories with the underlying package manager (apt)
    After this step is performed, your package cache will be consistent again
    So, how do we delete these files?

    The easiest way is to download the iFile package (if it shows up in Cydia). It's shareware and will let you use it for a limited time. I recommend you purchase it, because it's a great tool to have. Navigate the filesystem to the /var -> lib -> apt -> lists directory. Use the edit button in the upper right to allow you to select the files. Remember, do NOT select lock nor partial. Once the files are selected, tap the trash can icon in tab bar. Empty the trash. Fire up Cydia and get back to work.

    Unrelated... I just didn't want to start a new thread, but does anyone have a deb file for Activator 1.8.4 beta 7? I just updated to beta 8 and it's making Virtual Home act weird on my 5S. Honestly it's become unusable and I had to disable it. I really love this tweak and would like to roll back Activator if at all possible.

    any help is greatly appreciated!
