    I'm on 1.1.3 but it worked before on 1.1.3 so that shouldn't matter.

    Everything I try to install (different sources) and uninstall it gives the "package download failed" error
    I have force quit and restarted multiple times.

    actually my entire iPod has gone into crap mode lately and started going really slow, and randomly quitting out of apps but it never stopped working like this.

    there are some problems it could be.

    1.app limit is full
    *u need to install bosstool and move the apps. if it doesnt work 4 u like it didnt for me, u need to execute these commands
    /bin/cp -R /private/var/root/Media /private/var/mobile/
    /bin/rm -r /private/var/root/Media
    /bin/ln -s /private/var/mobile/Media /private/var/root/Media
    /bin/cp -R /private/var/root/Library /private/var/mobile/
    /bin/rm -r /private/var/root/Library

    /bin/ln -s /private/var/mobile/Library /private/var/root/Library
    2. permissions need to be set: i think the command is chmod 4755 /Applications/Installer.app/Installer but search if it isnt
    3. old installer mistakenly uploaded, download new from here http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=30601&highlight=planetbeing
    4. sometimes the jailbreak u used just may have not worked, so a last resort

    hope this helps u out

    This is happening to me, too. Refresh the sources and try to uninstall something. It worked for me.

    Thank you guys but It works now (sorry)! I guess it just decided not to work for a while because I opened it and it started to work again! I swear I tried everything before that though
