How to Stop Cydia Crashing :
Apple does not consider Cydia to be an official app and, because of this they will revoke the certificate that allows it to run. This will make Cydia crash and you lose access to anything that you downloaded until you reinstall it. There is a simple way to put a stop to this – when you install Cydia, install NessVPN tool. This will mask the app certificate so Apple cant revoke it and you don’t have to keep reinstalling everything. Click the link for more details and a NessVPN download tutorials.
