If you tap "Update" in the App Store and the app opens instead of updating, this is an Apple bug instead of anything related to your jailbreak.

When I go onto Cydia it says: /var/lib/apt/lists/partial is missing. Now when I search or look for anything it is blank. How do I get it back and fix my phone and Cydia?

SSH into your phone or use mobileterminal to create the folder /var/lib/lists/partial and set permissions to 755. Commands to run are below -

  1. su
  2. alpine (unless you've changed passwd from default)
  3. mkdir -p /var/lib/apt/lists/partial
  4. chmod 755 /var/lib/apt/lists && chmod 755 /var/lib/apt/lists/partial
  5. exit

What do I do if I hadn't installed OpenSSH and I can't now because nothing is downloadable?

Download iFunbox. Connect phone via usb and open Raw File System in the left hand frame. Navigate to /var/lib/apt/lists and select the lists folder in left frame. Right-click in right frame and select New>Folder. Name it "partial".
