    I was wondering if anyone else is having issues and getting this on the main page of cydia.

    Unable to load
    (timed out)

    When I try to install any apps I cannot connect to the host.

    Can anyone else confirm?

    are you sure you're connected to the internet on your phone? if you are then probably the server is just down. wait a couple of hours

    I have the same problem on the main page of Cydia, but I was able to upgrade a couple of files and install new apps.

    I'm still getting this error on the main page but I was however able to download and install a theme from the sections list today.

    Also I'm still getting this error on the Cydia landing page

    Error refreshing data

    Failed to fetch

    seems some other themes and apps still cannot connect

    How ironic is that too lol.

    I spent like 15 hours trying to hack this thing and now the server is down omg.... it's just my luck!

    My Cydia is stuck in download at like 10 % everytime I load it.

    My issue comes when I try to add a source. It will go through the motions right up to the end but then never requests to respring springboard.

    all you have to do is re-jailbreak using redsnow but do not restore it then ssh your phone...go to var/lib/apt/list...delete all files EXCEPT PARTIAL...exit ssh..launch cydia and wait for it to update..add your sources and reinstall whatever you installed before
