    Default Weird cydia error

    Everytime I go into cydia and it does it's downloading and all that when its done I get a message saying gpg error http://apt.modmyi.com stable release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG 87F92E166197E890 Kyle Matthews (poetic_folly) <Kyle@modmyifone.com>. I was wondering if this was a problem with my jailbreak or the source. Also I tried deleting and re adding the source same message. I'm on 4.3.3 and used the latest redsnow to jailbreak. Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance.

    Just got same error - hit the 'return to cydia' at the bottom of the screen, it did, and presented me with options to update cydia - did that - full deal, not essentials, followed by a repsring - and all was well again with cydia for me.

    Ok went back in and tried it. Got the error but when I hit return to cydia it just went back to cydia. It didn't give me the option to update anything.

    Sounds like it's just a hangup in the communication between your device and cydia. Occasionally a repo will be temporarily down. I'd advise against repeated deleting/reentering sources and just give it anywhere from an hour to a day before it's up and running again

    I got that error before, you should have just closed out the Cydia app from the task switcher. Then open it again and clear the app from the que leave it alone for an hour or two and it would have probably worked.

    Note to users if Cydia has upgrades always do the complete upgrade.
    can't upgrade via iTunes check this thread http://forum.tipb.com/jailbreak-unlo...ml#post1717460
