How to fix some mysterious problems.

evasi0n7 1.0.3 and later seems to include updated repository files for default sources. However, many users are having an issue with the BigBoss repo, in particular when refreshing sources.

The following steps should fix this:

  • Go to the Manage tab in Cydia, tap on Sources. (On iPad it's just the Sources tab)
  • Tap Edit and delete BigBoss.
  • Go to the Changes tab and tap Refresh.
  • Go to the Cydia Homepage. (The tab named Cydia)
  • Scroll down and tap on More Package Sources.
  • Reinstall BigBoss Repo.

I've done as instructed above and it still won't work for me. I'm on a iPhone 5s, running 7.0.4, and 1.0.4

Alright, after you delete bigboss try a reboot. Then refresh the sources and re-add it.

Like I said above, it should fix this. It's worked for a few people here and some others in the IRC room.
