I recently screwed up my cydia source list, unfortunately I hadn't installed iFile, OpenSSH or AFC before. Is there any mean to bring cydia back to work or install another app for this porpouse?

Is it possible to: -Reinstall Cydia using evasi0n (tried already without luck)? -Use the AutoInstall feature via iFuse/iFunbox? (created Cydia/AutoInstall, put there a .deb and rebooted but didn't work) -Use some kind of utility like libplist, libusbmuxd? -Reset contents and settings from the iPad and run evasi0n again? -Install a .deb via Safari? -Access via an AppStore app, the Cydia's sources file to correct it?

Do you have any additional idea?

Yesterday I would have said just restore. Today you can try Semi-Restore. What repos did you add to cydia?

Semi-restore will not work as it needs OpenSSH :(

Modmyi is a default repo, you can't have added it unless you first deleted it.

Turn off device... Enter Safemode...... whilst turning on press on hold volume up and don't let go till screen is fully on.

Go to cydia delete repos you added. Amd any piracy tweaks you installed.

Reboot......and your sorted

Unfortunately it doesn't work either, I keep pushing the volume up but it wont't enter Safe Mode. Plus I don't see the sources' list in cydia. Otherwise I would have solved my problem already...
