    Hey guys I have an iPhone 4 and I haven't been able to update Cydia since I jailbroke it off of jailbreakme.com. So I don't have Facetime or MMS and I can't download or even find the Saurik PDF patch. When I open Cydia it just gets stuck at the top where it says "Downloading Packages". Like how this phone looks in the picture below.

    It can't update while in Airplane mode. No WiFi or 3G means no internet, which means no update.

    His wifi is on so that's not it. You can have both airplane mode and wifi on at the same time

    You're obviously holding it wrong while updating.

    He said "like the phone in the picture". It's not even his picture because the one in the picture got past the problem. Be sure you're connected to the internet and that the internet is working properly and hopefully, it'll load for you.

    I had the same problem on my ipt 2nd gen, it wouldn't go past the reloading data screen. It was like that for about a week and then yesterday I woke up to go to class and I had the yellow screen of death. I've never had that problem before and so I just ended up restoring it with the 4.0.2 update which means now my device is nonjailbroken

    I ended up trying to restore to 4.0.1, but I can't get it to work. I have shsh's on file and umbrella is working fine but when it starts restoring the progress bar on the iPhone gets stuck a little past 50% every time.

    Anyone else experiencing anything like this? I've tried it like 4 times now and its really starting to piss me off.

    Make sure you don't use a USB hub because it will fail at 50%

    Do you have Wi-Fi Sync installed? If so, uninstall it, it causes problems with restoring.
