I have recently JB my iPhone 4 (iOS 5.01) with redsnow_mac_0.9.10b3.

I have issue with cydia keep crashing whenever I need to type in something, for example, when I want to search something, the moment I touch the text box space, cydia just crashes.

Even when I went to some app, and it requires for me to type in facebook/google login for authorization, cydia crashes the moment I touch the text input box.

I have tried 3 re-JB (restore it to default, then JB).

I even tried iExplore to delete everything inside of private\var\lib\lists except "partial" to see if it will fix the crashing... but still no luck.

I just want to purchase "Tetherme" app, but it require me to type in something....

what is wrong? any way to fix?

Thank you,

Have you tried a simple hard reboot?..... Hold power and home button until you see the Apple logo

Try this (if you can install SSH without it crashing):
To start with, launch Terminal and type in su root. Press enter after typing.
Type alpine and hit enter again.
When you're done typing alpine, put in apt-get remove Cydia and press enter. You'll see a warning pop up, which you'd have to press enter for. Then again, type apt-get install Cydia. Your Cydia should open now without troubling you anymore.

Thank you for your responding...

I don't know too much about SSH, if you are kind, is there a link? or show me how to do SSH?
