when I open Cydia on my ipad2, it shows below 3 messages in red and after that nothing works in cydia:

x. wow, you exceeded the number of package names this APT is capable of.

x. problem with mergelist /var/lib/apt/lists/apt.thebigboss.org_repofiles_cydia_dists_stable_main_binary-iphoneos-arm_packages

x. the package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

Anyone can help how to solve this problem?

Close Cydia out, fully (via the Multitask bar) and then reopen Cydia. Go to the Changes tab and hit the Refresh button. See if that helps?

If not, try closing Cydia again and then respring the iPad. Then, try the above again.

Have you tried removing some repos (sources)? You must have too many loaded for Cydia to handle. So, get rid of some, but make sure you don't deleted the five defaults:

BigBoss
Cydia/Telesphoro
Dev Team
Mod Myi
ZoTTD & MacCity

See if that helps...
