    Whenever I try to install an app from the App Store it pops up and says "Cannot connect to iTunes Store." I can still install app store apps if I download them with iTunes and sync with my computer though. Anyone know why its doing this? I could sure use the help.

    I've restarted a few times and reset all settings but it still hasn't fixed it.

    That's weird, mine does too. It also displays that I have 2 app updates (the badge on springboard) it's not going to get me to reset my iTouch. I can live with it. Weird glitch though.

    My guess is it has to do with something I installed from Cydia, there may be an update soon. Do you remember when it stopped working? I haven't used my App Store in a long time.

    I think the last thing I installed before I found out app store stopped working was the CoD4 Battery. I didn't check the app store for a while before that though so it could have been a lot of things.

    I forced closed App Store and reset but it still didn't fix it. My wifi is on and I can install things from cydia just fine the App Store is the only thing that can't connect.
    EDIT: I just fixed it! All I did was install an app with [PIRACY]us and all the sudden I could download app store apps.

    You couldve just trashed the failed install or another app to fix the issue, rather than install cracked apps. Or used gojohnnyboi's gLoader to respeing and tried the install again.
