    Default no sources in cydia

    I just Jailbroke my Wife's ATT IP4 with GreenPoison. Cydia dosnt show any sources or packages. I was able to download Winterboard and bitesms but thats it. It tells me the source cant be found on everything else and under sections it just says all sections but is empty. Please help.

    You just did it so I say restore and redo the JB. This time don't get rid of the loader until you know Cydia is running properly.

    maybe try re-running greenpois0n right on top of the existing..

    make sure to hold the home button all the way up until you see the Apple logo.. but no further, otherwise it will go into recovery mode

    that should put the loader back on and hopefully let you reload Cydia

    In Cydia,

    Tap on Changes
    Tap on Reload/Refresh


    That's supposed to fix it
    iPod Touch 2G - 4.2.1 - greenpois0n'd - untethered

    iPod Touch 4G - 5 - redsn0w'd - tethered

    iPad 1G - 5.0.1 - sn0wbreez'd - tethered

    Yes. not only restore but Restore as New, not from a backup, this way you eliminate a chance of reloading a bug. then jailbreak and make sure all goes well..

    ..add photos, music etc.. after that

    Hi,

    I had the same Problem, when I jailbroke my iPod touch 3G iOS 4.2.1 with greenpois0n and installed cydia with the loader app, there where no sources and I could not add any new ones eighter.

    What fixed the problem was:
    Needed:
    greenpois0n rc6.1
    redsn0w 0.9.6b4
    iOS 4.2.1 .ipsw
    Steps:
    1. I restored my iDevice (to uninstall cydia)
    2. I jailbroke it using greenpois0n rc6.1
    3. I used greenpois0n to get my iDevice in DFU-Mode
    4. Then I rejailbroke it using redsn0w 0.9.6b4 and selecting only "Install Cydia"

    That' s it now it works! untethered!

    It means that you've exceeded the amount of source files allowed. Tried deleting one of your repo and it should correct problem.

    The problem they experienced two years ago is unlikely the same problem you're experiencing today even if the symptoms appear similar.
