Recently I updated Cydia components as asked by a pop up when I opened the app. Since then I had to delete and restore all my repos in order to do a search (nothing appeared). Got that working...

Now Cydia closes when I try to open a package file to read it's description and obvioulsy install it... I've restarted the device A few times, hard reset, etc... Any help? I wouldn't want to delete my device and jailbreak it again =(

Have you tried in safe mode / no substrate mode?

I had the same problem, but it seems to have resolved, apparently after I reinstalled (modify/reinstall) some tweaks that seemed not to have installed properly.

I'll try safe mode and reply as soon as I can =)

Well for aome reason I did a search for substrate on Cydia and I was abble to update it. When I search for Vshare again I noticed that the App Crashes with the result of a single repo (appvv ai think). Do I need to delete that repo)
