    Hi there. Just a heads up, I do have a jailbroken ipod.

    Recently, not directly after the jailbreak, but it happened randomly, I tried to download a couple of free apps from the normal app store.

    They would stay on "loading" for a while, then an error comes up: Authorization Failed. Please connect to iTunes. Then you have the option to cancel or retry, retry does the same thing and cancel deletes the app.

    I have tried to many different apps, while synced, while plugged in, basically using all the variables I could think of.

    I really need help with this! Although, I've heard of an app called bananas, getting free paid apps? That's pretty sad, but do you reckon I could get the free appstore apps on that? It might work or something since it doesn't use iTunes.

    Also, the apps that are on my iTunes on computer, will not sync because of authorization problems since I jailbroke, so all I did was delete from my PC, and it let me download all my paid apps for free because it recognised my account had already paid for them beforehand. If that makes sense, what I wonder is why is it an authorization failure if it can access my account and tell me I've paid for those apps?

    Please help. Anything would be greatly appreciated.
    Hopefully this is in-depth and not confusing, as there is a fine line between the two when it comes to posting threads.

    Thanks again.

    Also, I CAN download from Cydia or Installer, just to clear things up a little more.

    First off, discussing illegal/pirated material is an infractionable offence under the forum rules. I have edited your post to remove the name of the offending application.

    Secondly, your problem may be due to a WiFi error, but if you're not having problems with Cydia etc, then check that your iTunes Store screen is set to the correct region? If not set it and resync. That's all I can suggest atm.

    This may fix up thing first try resetting all setting
    if that dosen't work ssh into your iPod
    and goto /private/var/mobile/

    and create a folder called Applications
    change the permsissions to 755
    and also

    use this command in the terminal

    chown -hR mobile /private/var/mobile/Applications/

    This happened to me once thats how i fixed my problem
    I recommend that you just Restore fix all problems up

    and don't discuss illegal/pirated stuff on this forum
