    most of the day today, cydia has been going on and offline. it finally came online, i loaded up cydia, updated a couple things, went back to my home screen and then locked my iphone. a minute later it was frozen on the apple logo, and no longer boots. the only thing I can do is get into DFU mode.

    update: i've restored and things are working ok for the time being.

    Uhm, that isn't cydia's fault unless you updated a substrate hack or something and it didn't fully install. Or a bad package.

    I am sorry, but what is that even supposed to mean? Cydia is a program on your device, it cannot go offline. However, you need an internet connection to access the startup page and the repos.

    The only thing Cydia does is downloading and installing software. If the installation worked without a problem, it is not Cydia's fault your device is messed up, but more likely due to one of the programs you updated.

    Why? Because you say so? Someone who claims that Cydia went offline, does not strike me as an expert on this issue. Cydia is the most reliable and stable installer for jb devices. I have myself witnessed several occations where a program I installed or updated messed up my iPod, but it never was Cydia's fault.

    Ok, cydia's server went down a lot today, is that better?

    cydia can corrupt the install. its rare, but it does happen.

    cydia IS basically the only installer. icy isn't that great in my opinion. back in the day when installer was good I think it was above cydia. but thats just my opinion, and besides the point.
