How to resolve Cydia Crash problem while ‘Loading Data’ Screen

In a recent article, I had mentioned that cydia was crashing on the ‘loading data’ screen. I tried finding the cause and the solution to this problem on many forums but didn’t find anything. But in a comment someone gave me a link to a site who had cause and also the solution to it. The reason why cydia started crashing was some repositories were corrupted or broken OR had loaded some broken packages. So cydia started to crash.

The solution to this problem is very simple. You just have to delete some files. You can either SSH and use any software like iPhone Browser OR iPhone PcSuite to access your iPhone system files (there are many others which you can use). You can also do it directly delete those files by using MobileFinder OR iFile. I prefer iFile as it has the option to delete multiple files at a time.

I used iFile and directly deleted files from my iPhone, but it is safer to first backup those files you are deleting and then delete them if in case something goes wrong so you can reload those files. The files that have to be deleted is in the path var/lib/apt/lists. There you have to delete all files except the ‘partial’ folder. I deleted approximately 140 files as I had installed all the repositories. After deleting all the files simply reboot your iPhone and start cydia. It should work fine, and no software’s/packages shall be deleted or lost.

Note: This process is tried and tested on iPhone firmware version 2.2 .

Update: Many have got this working for firmware 3.0 aswell. Read the comments below for more help, the community power is amazing ….

Update: Chris has a much reliable way it seems to get this thing done (read here):

  • Shell access (terminal or ssh)
  • Su to root
  • dpkg -configure -a
  • apt-get update
  • apt-get installs cydia (if this fails add –fix-missing)
  • apt-get upgrade (to install mobilesubstrate correctly)
  • reboot

  3. Nikolaj Jordansen

  4. simon

  5. Martin Nicolaisen

    hey guys… if this guide is not working and your Cydia still keep crashing at the loading, i might have a “better” fix for it..

    get terminal or ssh access to the iphone via Icy, i use openSSH and putty from my computer – after that i connect with root login
    User: root
    pass: alpine

    then type
    apt-get install cydia

    when it ask to reinstall press Y
    after this is done, fire up cydia and it WORK!!
    let me know if it works

  6. daniele_RS

  17. jesus

    Listen, very simple, what you have to do is this:
    SSH to the IPhone
    1) Delete all files in the path var/lib/apt/lists, except the ‘partial’ folder.
    2) Delete all files in applications/cydia/sources except the ‘partial’ folder, and the apt.bigboss* files
    3) Reboot the Iphone
    4) Load Cydia and tell me if it works…

  18. Sal

    it worked for me….thanks much for sharing … u r D best Jesus…

  19. bassman05

  30. frustraated

    My Cydia goes to the loading screen and then closes. I tried deleting all the stuff in the apt/list folder (except PARTIAL) and also from the cydia/sources folder. I rebooted the phone and Cydia still does not work. I think it all started when I installed SBSettings. Ever since then my Cydia doesnt work and I never even got SBSettings to work!!! It says to swipe the top but nothing happens when I swipe the top!!! Please advise on how to delete SBSettings and/or Cydia and reinstall Cydia. Thank you!

    I agree with Zag – it was the updates that were causing the problem…

    I used iphone Explorer and deleted, rebooted – all ok.

    Thanks for your help!

  70. “I try everything and what wors was deleteing the files in: var/lib/dpkg/updates
    Thanks the one how write that here!!!!!”

    Thanks Varox. Nothing worked for me except for that. I didn’t even have to reboot my phone after deleting those files. Now I have to restore the files in the /var/lib/apt/lists folder – so much for that.

    So thankful for community support!!!

  108. Aron

    I tried every thing …deleting files in \Lists folder, there is nothing in the \updates folder. Also deleted the Zodtd repository in the \sources. Cydia comes back but as soon as it starts updating ..it hangs again on the “loading data” screen. The only thin left is the Su to root thing but I do not have Terminal installed on my Iphone. And since Cydia is not working … how do I install Terminal on my phone (OpenSSH is not there either). Pls help …

  109. Phil

    Listen, very simple, what you have to do is this:
    SSH to the IPhone
    1) Delete all files in the path var/lib/apt/lists, except the ‘partial’ folder.
    2) Delete all files in applications/cydia/sources except the ‘partial’ folder, and the apt.bigboss* files
    3) Reboot the Iphone
    4) Load Cydia and tell me if it works…

    Thankyou Jesus

  113. Jayen

    It doesn’t work. I can load Cydia again the first time, but then Cydia redownloads the repositories, and the error happens all over again. And if I don’t redownload the repository, I have no host sites.

  114. Lisha

    None of above solutions can fix my cydia crashes.. It keeps saying error cannot deleted the file… The file seems protected… Please help! ;(

  115. blackprincess

    all the way from Nigeria saying YOU ROCK! worked for my 3G 3.0

  116. Frans

    WORKS FOR ME. THANKS!!!

  117. ramlie

    your the best guys…. thanks alot..

  118. Blossom

    works on 3.1.2 3G

  119. nam

    i can’t locate the folder in iphone browser?

    someone show me where it is?

  120. Painphul

    None of the above methods seemed relevant to my case. I just restored to a custom firmware 3.1.2 on my iPhone 2g, and Cydia would crash while loading data. I fixed the issue by launching Icy and removing all the Repositories installed other than Saurik’s. Launched Cydia, let it load, installed the “complete upgrade” for Cydia and all is good now.

    Hope this works for you !

    Hi All,
    in ifunbox i have private/var/ but this does not contain lib

    Cydia crashes before loading(first run after jailbreak it almost works but get an error then hangs at reloading data. All subsequent opening of cydia starts and hangs at loading data)
    I have tried reinstalling cydia from blackrain several times plus restore 3.1.2 ipsw but always the same issue.
    As i cant load Cydia I dont have SSH or the like.

    Any assistance much appreciated as I have spent many hours already both trying to get past this and searching the web for answers.

    Also there appears many like me with no answer to this exact case that I could find

    Cheers

    Hi Ahmed,

    I solved my issue.

    Are you getting an error along the lines of could not fetch… cache error … smxy.org

    if so what I did was

    1 fresh jailbreak with redsnow 0.9.2
    2 login with ifunbox (or the like) through usb cable
    3 navigate to etc/apt/sources.list.d/
    4 delete file corresponding to problem source ie smxy
    5 run cydia
    6 it will still “reload” but just be patient it should work

    let me know how you go.

    I suspect this source is old an maybe newer redsnow possibly may not include it by default so trying newer redsnow may also be an option

    good luck let me know if it works for you.

    I spent almost 10 hours trying to get past this crap :)

    Cheers Matt

  124. Matt

    I forgot to add

    FIRST REMOVE AUTO LOCK and anything that creates interrupts.

    Cheers,

    Dear sir,

    i have iphone 3gs with ver 4.2.1. Cydia is loading but not showing other packages except all packages, not showing changes and search also not working. Please suggest the solutions at the earliest.

    thanks and regards

    Thanks Jesus – this worked:

    1) Delete all files in the path var/lib/apt/lists, except the ‘partial’ folder.
    2) Delete all files in applications/cydia/sources except the ‘partial’ folder, and the apt.bigboss* files
    3) Reboot the Iphone
    (without a reboot it didn’t work)

    hi, I’m Maurice from Italy

    it was working as well but at the first start when I try to Manage ->Sources it starts Reloading Data for some seconds, then crash

    If I restart Cydia the problem “loading data” starts again :o(

    it is so simple…. just go to http://www.jailbreakme.com and run that setup from your iphone ( it works only for OS 3.1.1 to 4.0.1 )

    This won’t work for my iPhone 2g ver. 3.1.3 :((

  143. Atif

    Thanks, it works with 3.1.2

    Had the same problem, after installing a theme cydia would crash on loading data. First I deleted everything except partial in /var/lib/apt/lists, but problem was still there, then I deleted everything in /var/lib/dpkg/updates and she works again, no problems! iPhone 2G 3.1.3. Thanks for the fix!

  148. sacha

    Hi there,
    I really need help, I have got a second hand jailbroken iphone 3g, firmware 3.1.2. when I turned on WiFi, there were some updates available on cydia under “changes”, when I clicked on one of the update to modify, it was downloaded properly and afterward there was option to restart. when I clicked on it I dont know what the hell happened, and my phone is continously in waiting state, with a circle of dots moving in the middle of black screen.
    I am unfamiliar with this iphone, is there anybody who can help me to get out of this problem

    For anyone who’s still using 3.0.1 (long story) on their 3g (recently re-jailbroken). Basically – what you need to do is:

    * download and install iphonebrowser
    * navigate to /etc/apt and rename sources.list.d to sources.list.d.old and create a new (empty) sources.list.d
    * save the sources.list.d.old to your desktop
    * drag saurik.list and zodttd.list into the new sources.list.d
    * delete the contents of /private/lib/apt/lists (apart from the partial folder)
    * restart cydia.
