    Default Remove Repo that has no Delete button

    I had copied a Repo URL from a site and pasted it into Cydia, all the original site hypertext copied into it without my knowledge. The Repo doesn't work and there is no delete button to remove what I had entered when I tap Edit like there is for other Repos. So now when I go to Cydia I get a error about Sources that I have to dismiss before I can continue.
    Is anyone aware of another way to remove a Repo?

    Edit: I have iCleaner which can remove Repos but it takes all the Repos and I would have to re-enter them (may have to).

    Have you tried sliding your finger across the repo rather than hitting edit? That should pop up a delete button.

    What does it do that makes it a need to remove it? I ask because I know I'd likely be lazy and leave it there rather than re-enter all other repos so I'd never have considered the other option.

    It gave me a error and "return to Cydia" page, nothing major but a pia. I found the solution on google "how to remove a repo using iFile" …

    iFile Method

    Step 1. Navigate to '/private/etc/apt/sources.list.d'
    -1a. Open it, and delete all files that come up as a error on Cydia.
    -1b. Open Cydia.list for editing You will see lines that look like : deb http:/xsellize.com for example.
    -1c. Remove the line that has the offending repo URL.

    Step 2. Navigate to : /private/var/lib/apt/list and Delete all files that contain the corrupted repo in the name.

    Step 3. Navigate to : /private/var/lib/apt/list/partial and Delete all files that contain the corrupted repo in the name.

    Step 4. Navigate to : /private/var/lib/cydia and Open the metadata.plist
    -4a. Search for the corrupted repo, and Delete all instances of it. It may appear More than once in the metadata.plist file.
    -4b. Save the file.

    I followed the above and it worked.

    Thx, for replies.
