    Do you maybe have too many things running in the background? Or are low on memory? How about closing all running apps, rebooting the iPad and once it is started up going directly into Cydia to remove the excess repos? It does sound like you are low on available memory since your iPad is not able to load up the repo list.

    You are getting excellent help here (and we do need the repo you are trying to work with ... in order to help).

    I am just posting to say I deleted your other threads you started today on this same topic. Making more than one post not only fragments the conversation and makes it hard to follow - it's against the forum rules. Please keep any follow-ups, discussion or updates on this topic to this thread; do not start another. Thanks for your understanding.

    Solution

    put together the link that i was unable to paste for some stupid reason (scratches head) >>> www reddit com/r/jailbreak/comments/19gjum/i_keep_getting_transferred_to_candy_crush_saga_do/
    there is also a video on that page.
    It was pretty simple if you add their new source. Simply add it in your sources, then go to their packages...they only have 2 applications to install to block the advertisements.... I was having the same issue. Modified host file is the solution. (approved.)
