    Hiya, searched a bit but couldn't find anyone else with this problem...

    For weeks now, I've been utterly unable to refresh sources with installer... I thought there to be some kind of problem with my sources, so I uninstalled all but App Tapp.

    No difference.

    (I had previously tried switching on and off the ipod and wifi and what have you...)

    All this time, safari is working splendidly, as does mail and maps...

    Happened to stumble onto a free wifi hotspot at a hotel a couple of days ago, and juts for funsies I tried to refresh my sources and five seconds later I had no less than eleven updates waiting for me... To sum up, it all worked like a charm...

    The only time (since this whole thing began) I've managed to get through the update process it took me roughly ten minutes and showed no new apps (this was five minutes ago)

    So why is installer so grumpy at home?

    Does anyone have a solution?

    Please help, this is kinda not nice...

    thanks
    JeZ

    installer has changed to where it only refreshes sources once a day to ease off the load on server repositories this might be what ur going through

    Hmm didn't know that, but that can't be it since it hasn't updating for weeks

    Yeah but I have wireless at home, the router is like a metre away (even though I run wired to my iMac to keep the speed up

    This was my exact problem too, and someone told me to hard reboot my router. For the hell of it, I rebooted everything I use for my computer, and that fixed it. Try rebooting EVERYTHING.

    ya, disconnect your router and unplug everything and restart your computer. it should work when it is all back up. if it doesnt work and you are desperate, try restoring and rejailbreaking. but you shouldnt have to restore.
