The main purpose of Cydia is to provide all jailbroken iPhone users with software and operating system tweaks which are not available via official App Store.

Cydia Repositories

BigBoss Repo:

With over 850 packages and 500000 users, BigBoss repo claims to be the largest Cydia repo as of today. You can find large number of Cydia apps, themes, wallpapers and soundboards on BigBoss repo. BigBoss repo is added to Cydia by default whenever you jailbreak your device. Just incase BigBoss repo is missing from your Cydia, download bigboss.list and place it into root->private->etc->apt->sources.list.d by SSH'ing in to your device. Repo:

ModMyi repo has a huge collection of themes, tweaks, ringtones and games. Like BigBoss, ModMyi repo comes with Cydia by default. So these is no need to add the repo manually.

    while i’m adding any repos i encounter following problems:
    1. Encountered a section with no package header
    2. you may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems

    are there any solutions? THX in advance

      Pramod10 years, 3 months ago

      Do you get this only for a specific repo? Because that could be down right now and so you may need to wait for it come back up. Maybe for a few hours before you try the next time.
