    I have a problem with cydia: when i ad source, it is going to download sources etc. On the end it hangs by downloading packages. I have reinstalled cydia, and a rejailbreak done. What can i do??

    i am having the exact same problem, i added sources fine at the beginning of yesterday however last night and today, not so much...
    although once, i let it "download packages" and after a good while, i resprung (is that the right way to say it in the past tense) and the source was there! it only worked once though...

    At First i thought this was a new problem but after searching, it looks like it has happened before.

    I just upgraded to iOS4 on my 3gs and now I can't add any sources into Cydia.. it just hangs on "Downloading Packages"

    I tried deleting the sources from cydia.list in /etc/apt/sources but it didn't work. I then decided to be a smarta$$ and delete the whole cydia.list now I lost all the repos I added and I can't add them back!!

    Help anyone?

    First of all. Do you still have the GPG keys of the repositories? Check over the console with
    apt-key list
    My iPhone gives the following output:
    /usr/bin/apt-key: line 161: run-parts: command not found

    If you have the keys you can add the repositories manually into the cydia.list in /private/etc/apt/sources.list.d.
