    When I'm trying to access the appstore it says "loading" for 30 minutes (longest I've left it on)

    For Cydia, I'm trying to update it (Upgrade essential), and I get a huge list of things that are going to be installed > Bourne-Again SHell, bzip2, Core utilities (/bin) etc. When I try to download it says:

    "http://apt.saurik.com, POSIX: Operation timed out"
    "http://apt.saurik.com, NetDB: Open nodename nor servername provided, or not known"
    "Host is unreachable"
    "Cached failure"
    "http://apt.saurik.com, Host is unreachable"

    The wifi appears to work fine in Safari, loads IGN a lot faster than 2.2.1...

    Things I've tried (but didn't work):

    - Re-jailbreak 3.0 (restore to 3.0, use redsn0w to JB, clicked 'Done' only after JB was completely finished)

    - Reset network settings & Reset All settings

    - Rebooting device

    Possible reasons:

    - Cydia servers being hammered

    - AppStore servers being hammered

    - iPod touch 1g/2g users: 3.0 Wi-Fi drop, failures (http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/news/comments/ipod-touch-1g-2g-users-3.0-wi-fi-drops-failures/P40/)

    My iPod info:

    - iPod Touch 2G

    - Running 3.0

    - JB w/ redsn0w 0.7.2



    Suggestions? Ideas? Anyone else get this problem?


    EDIT: Can't download anything (SBSettings, AptBackup, etc.) from Cydia,always get the same problems.

    Hit it right on the head. That's why Cydia isn't working great right now.

    I think you're right, just grabbed my brothers iPhone (2.2 JB) and Cydia gives him the same problems, just doesn't spam him with 100 of those error messages.

    EDIT: His appstore is working fine, mine is still 'loading'
    EDIT2: Can anyone else help me confirm that Cydia is, in fact sluggish and giving you the same errors?

    same thing happened yesterday - cydia hammered as the world wakes up,

    it did improve once it finally stayed alive long enough to get the essential upgrades

    Dont install icy during the jailbreak on 0.7.2... It causes problems similar to yours.. It may not help you specific problem though.
