Closed Cydia while it was installing.. Now packages are missing?
Hi community i was hoping you coulf help me out:
I tried installing PushDoctor to fix a problem I was having with notifications. However, it was stuck on the back installing screen for a long time. Last time this happened, I Restarted the device while it was stuck on that process, and it couldn't get past the Apple Logo screen and required a full restore.
This time I decided to go to the homescreen and then close Cydia in the switcher... This was a bad idea.. Because now Cydia is having problems with displaying my installed packages and refreshing.
When I refresh I get the screenshot that I have attached to this post.
Should I reboot or do I end up seriously harming my iPhone like last time? I really want to avoid another restore..
Thank you for your help!
Found a solution!
After a few more google searches, I found this help:
1. Go to iFile / Var / Lib /Apt / Lists ( Delete everything EXCEPT partial.)
And Var/ Lib / dpkg / Updates (DELETE everything there.)
2. Respring then open Cydia and it will prompt you to delete the partially installed package.
3. All better! (For me at least. I apologize if it fails..)
