Cyfix can fix all your Cydia crashing errors. You just need to search Cyfix in any default sources and install it without GUI. Run it.

The developers have to modify entire Cydia source code to make it work on new firmware. The development needs long process and editing many files. It might possible that in some cases, Cydia might not work properly.

Recently, PanGu has announced that Cydia is not working with iOS 11.1.2 jailbreak tool. Saurik, a developer of Cydia, needs to modify it to make it work on iOS 11.1.2 and newer firmware.

However, most of the errors are common and can be fixed simply. But, its depend on the error. Since iOS 11.1.2 jailbreak release, we are getting couple of Cydia errors that we wanna discuss here.

Cydia can handle only 65535 packages. BigBoss, ModMyi, ZodTDD etc. are the default sources. They contain more than 40,000 packages. So, now you have only 25535 packages left to add. Suppose, you have added more than total 65535 packages, you will get “Wow, you exceeded the number of package names this APT is capable of” error. In this case, you have to remove default sources or any other sources that you have added before and now you are not using them at all.

Cydia Not Working – Other Possible Errors:-

1 Cydia not working: If you have recently jailbroken your iOS device and installed Cydia. It might possible that it is not installed properly, in this case, it won’t work. Try to Uninstall it and Reinstall Cydia from official deb file.

2 Cydia not opening: Cydia works on servers. It might possible that its not opening due to heavy traffic load. Try to open it again after some time. I would recommend that reboot your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and try to open it.

3 Cydia Crashing: The most common reason for crashing is, one or more package files have been corrupted. I would suggest to Update Cydia installation to prevent this error.


Comment can be a best solution to get rid of Cydia crashing. Just leave a comment with the query or the error which you are getting, we will try to solve it…

    I cannot update Cydia or download any tweaks plz fix

  5. Brad says:

    Cydia only crashes when I click on Sources or More Package Sources so I can not add the other packages I need to use. I have tried Reload, no error is displayed. Heartles187 at yah00

  6. Hunter says:

    I installed Cydia into my phone around a week ago. When I did, everything was fine, but then yesterday and today, I went to use it and all of the packages were gone and I couldn’t get any back. Note the fact that I still had all the apps from cydia too. But when I try to download something to delete the apps or to delete cydia, there is nothing to do it. So if anyone knows how to fix this and would like to answer my question please contact me at 4077447005. Thank you 🙂

  16. Is there someone having issues jailbreak iOS 10? I’m if you’re member of PanGu jailbreak forum and have tested Cydia on iOS 10 iPhone or iPad, you may know the best thing about it.

    I’m getting some emails requesting to solve Cydia not opening iOS 10 jailbreak error. They’ve got the working jbreak via PanGu app exclusively via their forum.

    If PanGu not opening error is occurring in your case, please report.

    Note: I’m not talking about iOS 10, I’m discussing about iOS 10 PanGu jailbreak. Please consider iOS 10 firmware to fix this issue.

    I jailbroke last night and all was fine. I went to install BiteSMS and it crashed my Cydia. OK no problem, I could launch in safe mode and open Cydia and uninstall the corrupted file EXCEPT iOS 10 jailbreak is TETHERED… So what can I do now? I am trying to restore my iPhone 6S on iOS 10 to a new phone set-up in iTunes but when I click the restore and upgrade button it gets stuck after extracting software on “waiting on iPhone” and this usually results in my screen staying completely black and iTunes giving me Error 4005. I can get my phone back to working order with Pangu app gone but Cydia and Activator are still present and I can’t for the life of me restore my phone at all. Any help is much appreciated!

  40. Tiffanie says:

    I have an iPad mini 2 running iOS 8.1.2 and I jailbroke it awhile ago. Until recently, everything was working fine. In the past couple of days, I have been unable to get any new downloads to work. Specifically, I have been searching for a free, unobtrusive wether widget, but all the ones I try to download do not show up at all. Not where they should be, and not in settings. Cydia says they are downloaded, but that’s the only cog working properly. What am I doing wrong?

    • The AppleTechBros says:

      Ok if you jail broke with PP you must restore update and jailbreak TaiG iOS 10 on windows or their new Mac tool. Do not jailbreak with PP on Mac though. If you have a Mac Jailbreak with TaiG and there new tool. Have windows? Then do everything but install TaiG on that iOS 9

  83. Guest says:

    How did it disappear, the only way to get rid of Cydia is to restore an original firmware from iTunes. If you don’t have it, you will have to run through the jailbreak process again (using pwnage for mac, or winpwn for windows)

  84. Elias Bonapartis says:

    How can I reinstall Cydia? Do i need to jailbreak again from scratch? I’m totally confuse and now I need your help to get rid of these errors.
    Wow, you exceeded the number of package names this APT is capable of

    • Azia says:

      If you want to re-install Cydia and you have the jailbreak “blackra1n” then go to home and find the blackra1n icon on your itouch. Click on the icon and if you have an internet connection there will be 3 items under the tab: Available Packages
      Just press on it and then click install!!

    Error disappeared “Wow, you exceeded the number of package names this APT is capable of”
