Need to reinstall Cydia without Jailbreaking
I have tried many ways to reinstall Cydia because I have a substantial amount of errors from several repo's.
I've tried using winscp but the commands don't seem to work for me at all.
Can anybody help & thanks in advance.

For all intents and purposes...Cydia IS jailbreaking. There was a way to use Terminal and going through basically brain surgery on your iPhone in order to SEE if anything was leftover from Cydia to launch off of and install, but you also risk deleting very important pieces of your phone that would leave you completely screwed.
Also, that was back when the 3GS was new...i have no clue if this is even possible anymore after iOS was installed.

In iFile, tap the WiFi icon on the bottom bar. It should display some text with an address at the end, something like 192.168.1.6:10000 (don't use that, use whatever yours says). Enter that address in your computer browser. You should get a root directory of your ipod showing on your browser, with an upload box. Navigate to /tmp and upload the cydia .deb file to your iPod. Then tap Done on iFile on your iPod. Navigate on your iPod to /tmp and tap the cydia .deb file you just put there. In the menu which will appear select Installer. It should now install the new Cydia.
