Update: I ended up searching the error code and it seems as though iFile is needed to fix it but seeing as I am unable to install anything ATM, I'm stuck.

U dont need to install anything to use SSH. I recommend u di your research on how to SSH on to your phone and continue from there. Will update after. It's just not allowing me to make any changes.I have a jailbroken iphone. This is exactly that happens every single time I download anything on cydia. It says the same thing every time but when I respring, the download isn't even there. I want to fix this without having to restore and rejailbreak and all.
I had the same problem so I did this: You can't fix this problem by automatically, you have to restore it by creating a backup on iTunes and than restore and finally you can add that backup to your iPhone. You shouldn't have to back up your whole iPhone or iPod hook your phone up to the software you use to jailbreak and there should be an option for debugging that should do the trick. WHy won't cydia let me download anything? I'm using the new evasi0n jasilbreak and i have a Iphone 5, 6.
But when I went to install the winterboard or any other program it won't work. I've tried on 3G and my Wi-Fi connection and it still won't install anything. Any thoughts people? Are the boys at Cydia or the other sources still working on iOS 6.iOS 11.3.1/11.2 How to Fix CYDIA "Half-Installed Package" ERROR On Electra Jailbreak
I really have no experience but all I want to do is develop a simple iPhone app. Not a game but sort of like a comment stream to put it in short terms. I learn things pretty quickly but I'm just looking for a starting point. So feel free to share your opinion on what is the best way to approach this new skill so I can learn the best way What will happen to apps installed via cydia if I will delete cydia? I jailbroken the iphone for the purpose of installing an app which is not available in appstore.
Now I do not need cydia anymore, I can delete it by deleting its packages. But what will happen to the app that is installed using cydia if I will remove cydia?It is developed by Joseph Walden. Apart from Electra, it also supports Yalu jailbreak for iOS However, its utility remains limited because Yalu already comes with Cydia. It has been tested on Yalu iOS Yes, it is completely safe to use. All tweaks and associated files are only transferred to the correct locations.
Moreover, it also allows you to install tweaks that contain tweak-specific data that must be moved outside of bootstrap. For example, the Switches and Application Support folder present in some tweaks. Alternatively, you can enter If you choose this option, you must connect your device to your compueter via USB. It will now install the required Deb file on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. If you want to install tweaks manually, you can give this guide a read. Tweak Installer only supports Windows computers for now.
The developer is currently working on Linux and macOS versions. Hopefully, they will drop sometime during the next few days. Joseph might also create an on-device Deb file installer for iPhone if time permits.
Gian is the resident jailbreak expert at Yalu Jailbreak. He has been jailbreaking his iPhone since Best way to catch his attention? Show him a tweak he hasn't installed. However, i often had the problem that the app was apparently well installed i. First i thought the IPA might have been corrupted, but even when trying with Filza it will not work.
Whereas when i sideload using impactor, the app will work normally. Do you have any idea what this could be related to? I was hoping this would work better with version 2.
This tool is having issues right now and can lead to freezes. I suggest staying away from it for the time being. Im having a different issue now. As mentioned i tried out quite some IPAs that i installed using the tweak installer tool.
Some of those didnt work and i would like to delete everything.
The uninstall function does not seem to work. How can i manually free up space again? Any ideas? Late reply, but Filza wasnt helpfull. I tried searching for specific app names and larger files, but without success. Any idea where those could be located so i can remove manually?There are some techniques you should know for checking a package for errors before uploading it to the public archives.
It's also a good idea to carry out testing on a machine other than your own. You must watch closely for any warnings or errors for all the tests described here. If it is your mistake, fix it.
You must test your package for whether it installs without problems. The debi 1 command helps you to test installing all the generated binary packages. To prevent installation problems on different systems, you must make sure that there are no filenames conflicting with other existing packages, using the Contents- i file downloaded from the Debian archive. The apt-file command may be handy for this task.
All maintainer scripts that is, preinstprermpostinstand postrm files are hard to write correctly unless they are auto-generated by the debhelper programs. If the package makes use of these non-trivial maintainer scripts, be sure to test not only for install but also for remove, purge, and upgrade processes.
Many maintainer script bugs show up when packages are removed or purged.
Use the dpkg command as follows to test them:. If this is your first package, you should create dummy packages with different versions to test your package in advance to prevent future problems. Bear in mind that if your package has previously been released in Debian, people will often be upgrading to your package from the version that was in the last Debian release. Remember to test upgrades from that version too. Run lintian 1 on your. The lintian command runs many test scripts to check for many common packaging errors.
Of course, replace the filename with the name of the. The output of the lintian command uses the following flags:. O: for overridden; a message overridden by the lintian-overrides files but displayed by the --show-overrides option. When you see warnings, tune the package to avoid them or verify that the warnings are spurious. Note that you can build the package with dpkg-buildpackage and run lintian on it in one command, if you use debuild 1 or pdebuild 1.
You can list files in the binary Debian package with the debc 1 command. You can compare file contents in two source Debian packages with the debdiff 1 command. You can also compare file lists in two sets of binary Debian packages with the debdiff 1 command. These are useful to identify what has been changed in the source packages and to check for inadvertent changes made when updating binary packages, such as unintentionally misplacing or removing files. You can compare two diff.
This is useful for verifying that no inadvertent changes were made to the source by the maintainer when updating packages in the old 1. The new 3.
Be on the lookout for extra unneeded files or zero length files, both in the binary and source package. Often cruft doesn't get cleaned up properly; adjust your rules file to compensate for this.

Step 5: Tap the Changes tab at the bottom of the screen and tap the Refresh button in the upper left-hand corner to refresh your Cydia sources. Step 6: You should notice that the errors from the UltaSn0w repo have stopped occurring. Of course, adding UltraSn0w back is just as easy as removing it. Step 3: tap Edit in the upper right-hand corner of the Sources page and then tap the Add button in the upper left-hand corner. Step 5: Assuming the repo is up and operational, you should see a black screen showing the source being added and packages being downloaded.
Keep in mind, depending on the status of the repo, you may or may not be able to add it right away. UltraSn0w seems to be pretty finicky and go offline a lot, hence the reason for the error message happening in the first place. The reduced frequency of repo error messages will save you a few extra strands of hair as you navigate through Cydia on a day-to-day basis.Cydia temporarily can't refresh data because another program is already using a system component that Cydia needs.
This error commonly happens if you're also using another program that refreshes package data, such as Curiosa. To fix it, try rebooting. If that doesn't help, you may need to uninstall Curiosa and any other packages that do this. Cydia ran into some kind of network problem.
The usual cause of this error message is using packages that add tons of ad-blocking lines to your hosts file; uninstalling those packages should fix this error. Cydia tries to fix this problem automatically. If this is the only error message displayed, you can ignore it and use Cydia normally.
Cydia won't install anything whatsoever?
Encountered a section with no Package: header You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems. One or more of your installed sources is set up incorrectly. You should be able to remove the problematic source by going to Sources and tapping "Edit" at top right.
There is not enough disk space on the system or user partitions or both for Cydia to install this package. Try removing some files first, such as large bootlogo or theme files; you may need to use iFile, OpenSSH, or some other way to access the filesystem. You can go to the Cydia homepage and tap "Storage Information" to check available space on both the system and user partitions.
This is a minor problem with a source. You did nothing wrong and can continue to use Cydia normally. One or more of your installed sources is temporarily or permanently unavailable.
You may have typed in the wrong URL, the source may have shut down, the source may be broken, or the source may be denying your connection for some other reason. Try again later. If this problem keeps happening over many days, you can remove the problematic source by going to Sources and tapping "Edit" at top right. The downloaded file does not match the file on the source's server. This is often caused by a download getting interrupted before it finished, sometimes due to network problems and sometimes due to server problems.
If you get this for many packages, try a more reliable internet connection or try again later. If your internet connection is fine for downloading other packages, including from other repositories, there may be a problem with the package or the repository. It may be helpful to report this to the repository manager.
This may mean that your internet connection is not working, a source is not working, or something else is not working such as the Cydia Store system.
This is probably a temporary problem, so try again later.
If you paid: contact saurik saurik. If not, purchase the original package. If you get this error while trying to download a paid package you have already purchased, email saurik saurik. If you are trying to download a paid package you have not purchased, buy it and then try downloading it again. If you are trying to download a free add-on to a paid package for example, a package adding a new option to Color Keyboardyou have to purchase that paid package before you will be able to download this add-on.
Something seems to be wrong with the source hosting this package. I wasn't able to locate file for the [package] package. This might mean you need to manually fix this package. This is a generic error that means something went wrong. This may happen if you try to install a package while fresh data is downloading from your repositories the stage right before "Reloading Data". Try going to the Changes tab, tapping "Refresh" at top left, waiting for data to finish downloading, waiting for Reloading Data to complete, and then installing this package again.Every Linux distribution based on Debian uses Debian packages as a method for installing and uninstalling the software.
Tweak Installer – Remote Deb file installer/uninstaller for Electra
Debian packages are identified by the file extension. They can be installed and uninstalled using graphical tools and the command line. Most of the time you use a package manager such as the Ubuntu Software CenterSynapticor Muon to install the software in Debian-based distributions.
If you prefer to use the command line, you are likely to use apt-get. Some applications aren't available in the repositories and have to be downloaded from the vendors' websites. Be careful about downloading and installing Debian packages from sources that do not exist in the distribution's repositories. Some of the biggest applications are delivered in this format, including Google's Chrome web browser. The Apt package manager, the same one you use to update your system and install new packages from the Web, can also install packages locally on your system.
On a Ubuntu-based distribution, double-click the. Then, click install. Linux Switching from Windows. Tweet Share Email. To use Apt, simply point it in the direction of whichever. Remove a Debian package using the following command:. More from Lifewire.
