Source Error
trying to overwrite

Plugin.webplugin/info.plist', which is


Can't install or remove any programs or modifications on cydia because of it. Just started last night out of no where, so no clue what to do to fix it.

If anyone has a link they can have me read or anything I can do to fix it, let me know. I would hate to have to jailbreak my phone again and add everything all over again for a second time in the last two weeks.

According to this, you should try using Cydia on Edge or someone else's wifi. Perhaps reset network settings would solve it permanently?
Didn't work and I had scoured the message boards to an answer to it. It had beachballed on the Apple Logo when trying to restore and no luck.

I had to factory restore again, but I used AptBackup so it wasn't too big of a deal. Just adding the contacts back is a pain.

I would say your problem lies with "Animate" the boot logo changer you installed from Cydia....going by the screen shot...
Again can you enter safemode, and in Cydia delete animate...?

edit: forget safemode...just enter Cydia and delete Animate...

I tried to get rid of that tweak in cydia but it still won't let me. Do you know how to get to safe mode other than by crashing? I read that sb settings will allow you to but I can't seem to find that on there...
