Cydia opens up a whole new world for owners of jailbroken devices with the extensive range of apps and customization options it offers. However, there are a number of common errors that most people come across when they use Cydia. Given below is a tutorial on how to fix some of these errors:
When searching, User Unreachable is a commonly encountered error. Check the internet connection when you find this error. This occurs mainly because of server overload. The repo you may be using could also be the problem. If you wait for a little while it should resolve on its own.
This type of error can be seen when you install apps. Again, the problem might be internet connectivity. If your internet connection is fine it means that the servers of Cydia are overloaded so simply wait for a few minutes and try again.
Socket Not Connected: POSIX
This type of error will occur if you lose your internet connection while downloading. Connect to Wi-Fi if you have been using a 4G/3G connection. If you are using Wi-Fi, simply to go Settings then to General, Auto-Lock and change it to never to resolve the issue.
Operation Timed Out- POSIX
This error simply means that the server of the repo has too much traffic or is online. Access it again after a few minutes.
Reboot or re-spring the device. If the problem persists then you should clear all sources in Cydia. This should take care of the issue in most cases.
This is an internal server error and it occurs when there is an error with the source hosting the package. Try to access again after a few minutes.
Status file or package list cannot be opened or parsed
In such errors, Cydia seems to be absolutely empty. However, this usually isn’t an issue with the iPhone. It normally occurs when Cydia is getting updates. Simply wait for a few minutes and try again.
Problems when processing repository
If you encounter any such issues and you have SINFULREPO on your Cydia, you can resolve it by deleting it and trying again. If that doesn’t work simply clear all sources and Cydia should work fine again.
Most of these common errors are quite simple and can be resolved easily or they clear up on their own. What’s your greatest Cydia problem? How did you resolve it? Share in the comments below.
