    Just installed 8.1 from 7.1.2. JB went smoothly without any issues and Cydia did its setup and reboot. When i go into Cydia tho, i see apt.thebigboss.org for source, modmyi, saurik.com....etc looks to be the 5 default sources.

    When i click on f.flux or any other package, i get a message saying it can not be located. "Cannot Locate Package"

    When you go to Cydia for the first time, you usually have to refresh Cydia so as to load the packages.

    So, at Cydia, tap on the "Changes" tab at the bottom of the screen. Once that page appears, look for and tap the "Refresh" button at the top left. After tapping, all the packages and tweaks should load so you can can browse or search.

    Hope this helps. Holler back if it doesn't.

    Hi Marilyn,

    That did it! I was reloading from the home screen of Cydia. I never had to refresh from the "changes" page before. Now i can readd my paid tweaks. Cheers!! :)
