So I installed a source from the cydia homepage from the list of sources it gives you. Upon doing that I recieved the databse error (wow you have exceeded the number of package names capable for this API, etc). Normally you could just delete the source from the manage>sources tab but since i "installed" it like you would any other tweak, theme, etc, I would have to go to manage>packages and uninstall It from there but since there is the database error it shows no packages. HELP!

Delete any source and then,after the error has cleared,delete the other source you added as a package.

P.S:What source?
