Use i-FunBox to delete the following Cydia App folders:

/var/stash/Applications/ /var/stash/Applications.9BdOWM/

Then run loader again.

Hello, I need to uninstall and reinstall Cydia and I read the above post instructions on how to do that.

I do not have the folders you listed above.

Here is what I do have: in /Applications

cydia.log in /tmp

Cydia in /Applications/

MobileCydia in /Applications/

cydia.png in /Applications/

cydia@2x.png in /Applications/

Cydia (File Folder) in /usr/libexec

cydia.log in /var/tmp

cydia.log in /private/var/tmp

Cydia (File Folder) in /Var/root/Media

Cydia (File Folder) in /private/var/root/Media

which is located in /var/movile/Library/Caches/

Which is located in: /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/

Any advice on which ones to remove?

it looks like you ran a search for "Cydia" on your file system, anyways, the FOLDER you want to remove is /Applications/

if you have iFile and Appinfo, run AppInfo and see information about Cydia application, and then you can open it in iFile, it will open the folder that contains Cydia files, this should confirm the folder i pointed out for you.

Try this to remove and reinstall Cydia, you need to have OpenSSH on your device, SSH to your device and run the following two command lines:

get-app remove cydia

get-app install cydia

Sorry i forgot you still dont have Cydia and so can't get OpenSSH. Anyways, when you browse with iFunBox, what Cydia folders do you get?
