    Hello

    I have a 2g iphone with 2.2 OS that used quickpwn to jailbreak and unlock. I also have a 3g iphone with 3.0 OS that used redsn0w 0.8 to jailbreak and ultrasn0w to unlock.

    Starting on July 17th both phones couldn't launch Cydia anymore for some reason. I searched here and the net and found 2 possible fixes.

    1) Props to [ame=http://www.ipodtouchfans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=210765]A fix (that worked) to Cydia 3.0 crashing when loading - iPod touch Fans forum[/ame] for this particular one. Using either SSH or iphonebrowser (i prefer iphonebrowser) go to the following location and delete everything except for the partial folder

    var/lib/apt/lists

    2) Some people are also reporting that if you go to var/lib/dpkg/updates and delete the files in there it works as well however i didn't have any in EITHER PHONE so i used method 1 to fix my crashing issue. I will update this thread if it begins to start crashing again.

    Let me know if you have questions
