My iPad 2 is jailbroken and running iOS 5.0.1. When I open up Cydia, it shows me a message : The package com.teiron.pphelper needs to be reinstalled. But I can't find an archive for it.
How can I fix this problem?

This may work.  Install MobileTerminal and enter:

su (and enter password, alpine by default)

dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq com.teiron.pphelper

dpkg --configure -a

If this doesn't work, let me know, and I'll look for something else... Hope this helps!

Do you mean to find a app whose name is Mobile Terminal and enther the command ? – LeonPak Apr 26 '12 at 6:37
@LeonPak Yes, that's what he means. If you don't have a supported device for MobileTerminal in the standard repositories, then check out my answer here to get a port for the A4 devices: – Andrew Larsson Apr 27 '12 at 15:56
Can I do this by ifunbox? – LeonPak May 6 '12 at 15:19
I try to update cydia to newest version(1.16),but the problem still not fix. – LeonPak May 6 '12 at 16:07

It's easyer to find right repo for com.teiron.pphelper, add it to cydia and than will everything be ok again.
