How to fix Cydia Issues for iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak (Corona and RedSn0w)

Since then, many have been experiencing problems with Cydia. Many repos have been getting hammered causing them not to load, packages not available, size mismatch issues, timeout errors, and so on. Thanks to @saurik & @planetbeing, RedSn0w and Corona have been updated to resolve this issue.
“The b2 version of redsn0w includes the launchctl-related fix by @planetbeing as mentioned by @saurik here and here. As usual, you can just re-run redsn0w in jailbreak mode over your existing 5.0.1 jailbreak (even a PwnageTool one), making sure to de-select “Install Cydia” if you do. Always be sure to do a controlled “slide to power off” shutdown of your device before running redsn0w.” – Dev-Team Blog
“The launchctl issue also affects you if you used redsn0w to install the 5.0.1 untether. I have built 1.0-3, which can upgrade redsn0w users.” – Saurik
How to fix launchctl issue:
Corona 5.0.1 Untether: If you converted from Tethered to Untethered using Corona, simply download the updated version 1.0-3 from Cydia.
There has been a second update to RedSn0w
The b3 version of redsn0w fixes a problem where re-running redsn0w over an existing jailbreak would cause MobileSubstrate-based apps to stop running until MS was installed again. Now you can re-run the redsn0w jailbreak step without worrying about that (but still remember to de-select the “Install Cydia” option if it’s already installed). – Dev-Team Blog
To fix the bugs and update to the new Mobile Substrate, simply download the following updated version of RedSn0w:
This also works if you used RedSn0w 0.9.10b1 to Untether Jailbreak.
- If you are doing a fresh Jailbreak, have “Install Cydia” CHECKED
Window users: Run RedSn0w as Administrator
– Hit Jailbreak
– Set iDevice to DFU mode
– If already Jailbroken with RedSn0w 0.9.10b1, UNCHECK “Install Cydia”
– If you are doing a fresh Jailbreak, have “Install Cydia” CHECKED
Now open up Cydia and update Mobile Substrate
