    It keeps telling me that the package failed to download. I tried the EDGE network, and my wi-fi connection, and nothing works. Whats going on?

    Make sure you haven't exceeded your 300 megabyte application limit.

    Try to just refresh, this happened to me. If it does not work, refresh again and reboot.

    same here

    im having the same problem (package download fail), but my friend said he had the same problem, and he said it juts fixed itself as he played with it (reset, reboot, restart, on/off, wi-fi on/off etc.) It looks like lots of people are having this problem with the new version of installer and theres no real "fix" yet so yeah ill try play with mines too and come back if i can get it to work. I am running 1.1.2 and i have never installed 1.1.3 jb or legally

    I keep getting the same problem. I get "Package download failed: can't find host!" this is using r4m0n's source & seems to do it on all sources.

    does anybody know what to do?

    I think there are a couple of issues going on. Some people cant get ANYTHING through installer and some people are having intermittent issues with it.

    If you cant get ANYTHING make sure you have available space in the root partition.

    cd /
    df -k .

    Make sure you are below 100%. If you aren't you need to move your Apps to /private/var.

    For those of us that are having intermittent issues, I think we are seeing an installer issue. I can download some packages and some I cant. Doesn't matter how many times I clear the queue and reboot and try again. Hopefully there will be a fix soon!

    An example is EvolutionRGB. It doesn't matter how many times I try I get "Download of package failed".
