    Same problem here as OP. I will try ur technique schnedi and see if Cydia will load without crashing.

    How come all of a sudden Cydia is doing this? It worked fine 2 days ago and then all of a sudden it loads and just crashes....?

    I had the same problem, and I dont have either of those sources in those directories.

    So, I deleted ALL the contents of the var / lib / apt / lists folder (except the "partial" folder).
    Cydia loaded right up and added all the sources back in by itself... problem solved!

    Download CuteFTP, Putty or any program to SSH into the iPhone. Once there, follow the directions below.
    happened me the same and i went to applications / Cydia.app / sources and delete Touch mania and
    bluetooth project sources then go to var / lib / apt / list , delete the same go to Cydia and done
    Search with MMI search or Google.com for how to SSH, many guides can be found.

    Very easy! Good luck

    Load Cydia and search for open SSH or SSH and u will find a few alternatives to install. If u already have a previous SSH installed, then it will say modify. U should download SBsettings and install SSH settings. U can turn it on/off anytime.
    So make sure u have SSH installed through Cydia and then continue on what I posted in the previous post.

    Hope this helps

    Ok, How can I use commands through a terminal from a mac?
    I use CyberDuck to SSH into my iPhone and can find and delete files and all.
    But according to this post I need to use Terminal to find out WHAT source to remove:

    So, how do I do this from a Mac?

    Thanks matey it did work perfectly for me too i could not figure out how to restore cydia thanks again!!!!The only problem is that you have to reinstall all the apps to eventually delete them again if you no longer want them but wtf at least it works!!! lol
