    I get that error everytime I try to download something through Cydia. I am connected to a VPN server on wifi (Safari works fine.) I have a iPod Touch 2G 3.0.

    BTW, I am completely knew to Cydia.

    Was downloading Springtomize I believe,I then restarted Springboard and it took around 10mins and still nothing. So then I held power home to turn it on again. Still nothing. I think I am on my 5th time, and it's been 30mins. And now it shows the spinning wheel.

    I heard somewhere that I can plug it into the computer, open iTunes, and then leave it for 10-15mins and it'll be fine? I'll try that.
