    I have been having problems recently downloading apps on my iPod. Whenever I try to download an app it just says waiting for about 5 minutes then it says cannot download app. Does anyone have any ideas why it is doing this? I do have a network connection. I wrote this on my iPod.

    Have you tried syncing them through iTunes to see if you get an error? If you do, the next step is to restore and then try to download while not jailbroken to see if it works okay. If it does, then rejailbreak.

    Occasionally, the appstore is known to try to have your device download unsigned apps (basically cracked apps) and due to iPods not allowing cracked apps, it feeds errors like that. You can normally fix it by syncing an app through iTunes, afterwards it usually works great.
