Cydia App Crashing Fixing

Unable to open Cydia app

This is one of the major problem faced by many i-Device owners. Cydia sometimes doesn’t even load at all no matter how many times you tap the Cydia app logo on your app screen and a Few system reboots can’t help either.

How to FIX :-

We came to know why the problem arises. The Cydia server is connected with multiple connections which includes you and every one who uses cydia. Some times Cydia servers will be down due to high traffic. And the Cydia app will not able to communicate with the server during that time. We recommend you to wait for couple of hours so that the server is up.

Cydia not loading

I bet that many of you had came across this problem when your Cydia app throws a message “Unable to Load” (the internet connection appears to be offline).

How to FIX :-

There are only two major reasons for the problem one is that you data connection on your device is slow or Incorrect Time and Date settings on your device. Make sure that you are connected to Internet with correct Time & Date settings.

Cydia unable to load the package you have downloaded

You are new to cydia and downloaded lots of tweaks on your device and Cydia failed to display them under Cydia -> Manage -> Packages -> Installed Tweaks and you may not see any icons on your home screen too.

How to FIX :-

First try to reboot your device. Then check whether you can see the installed packages in Cydia as we mentioned above. If not then check for Cydia Sources. If you have too many packages then cydia will fail to show you the installed tweaks. Remove the sources you are not using and bingo your installed tweaks will be show up.

The above 3 are relative Cydia problems and solution but not the main problem. Cydia App Crashing. Lots of users face it. So let’s checkout How to Fix it.

  1. I recently did a jailbreak on an iPhone 4 ios 7, with pangu jailbreak. It all worked fine till apps started crashing. then I noticed my substrate was not functioning, so I updated the substrate but still some apps are still crashing how do I fix this?

  2. When I click on cydia two packages start downloading(I guess the update) then it freezes and I have to hold down the home button and the off button until the springboard restarts. That’s the. Only thing my cydia does. But my packages still work and some of them have dissapeared

  3. My problem is that I was trying to uninstall a tweak that I no longer needed, but half way through uninstalling cydia crashed, now it won’t open. Just loads then crashes within 5 seconds. Help please?

      • Will this require me to restore my device? If so, how can I hold onto ios7 without iTunes automatically upgrading to ios8?

        • All in all, iOS 9.0.2 is a nice update from apple. It needs lesser space than iOS 8, less buggy and faster than iOS 8. I know a lot of people choose to stick to iOS 7. I’d like to tell them that iOS 9 is much better optimized to all devices than iOS 8.

  4. Dear When I click on cydia icon cydia doesn’t not appear it’s not open how to fix it plz help me dear bt when i double click on home button then i see cydia is open in background but i can’t access it help dear

      • The same thing happened to me when I Jailbroke my iPad yesterday, using Pangu9 for iOS 9.0.2. This happens due to a few mistakes we tend to make while jailbreaking. However I was successfully able to troubleshoot this problem in a few minutes. This is how:

        This solution is only for iOS 9.0.2. If you don’t mind updating to iOS 9.0.2, then this solution is perfect.

        1. Update iTunes on your PC. Either update existing or uninstall and install new copy. In both cases, use the Run As Administrator Command in your mouse’s Right Click. Now, restore your iPhone/iPad to your computer through iTunes and then chose “Restore from this Computer”. Now you are Unjailbroken again and you will be running iOS 9.0.2.

        2. After this Put Your iPhone/iPad in Airplane Mode, turn off Passcode, turn off Find My iPhone in your Settings app.

        3. When you RUN the Pangu9 file on your computer, RUN it by clicking on RUN as Administrator in the Right Click Options. You should run it as Administrator.

        4. Now, after the Jailbreak procedure starts, follow all the instructions given to you in that window. At about 65% you are asked to unlock and put your device in Airplane mode again, do that. Be attentive.

        5. Right after the jailbreak completes 100%, you should come out of Airplane mode, then switch on your WiFi or 4G/3G/LTE depending on what internet you use.

        After that, now try to open Cydia, and I bet it works like a charm.

        • There is one more tentative solution to this. Some people are saying that if you Reset your iPhone/iPad in the Settings, then go to the Photos app and browse a few Photos and now open the Cydia app it starts to work perfectly. I’ve heard this worked for a few people.
