    Hello all,

    I'm getting the following error when I start up Cyida.

    "Error: Refreshing Data
    Failed to fetch apt.modmyi.com/dists/stable/main/binary-iphoneos-arm/Packages
    Hash Sum mismatch

    Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead"

    What does this mean? How can I fix it?

    Thanks.

    Gotcha. I wasn't sure if it was something on my end or the repo but if it's the repo then I need to just wait it out.

    Mine never fixed itself so couldnt get modmyi repo updates so I managed to cure the problem..
    I went into /private/var/lib/apt/lists and removed all files except the partial folder in the partial folder there was a file apt.modmyi.com_dists_stable_main_binary-iphoneos-arm_Packages.decomp.FAILED I removed that file and all other files that had reference to apt.modmyi.com in there one other I think..ran cydia and removed modmyi.com source from packages installed and rebooted then ran cydia again and added the modmyi source again and that cured the problem.. remember to backup the files just in case you have a problem

    Well, if you guys had downloaded the new firmware 3.1.2 like I did and you guys have Cydia and get your apps from either I*N*S*T*A*L*L*O*U*S or C*R*A*C*K*U*L*O*U*S then I'll tell you what I did. I just went to Hackulo.us the source clicked on it and I downloaded AppSync(the newest one) and voila it worked for me Hope I helped.

    give it some time/ its the repos fault
    You sure about that? ALL REPOS i try to DL form do not fully Download and give me what i want.
    how can all repos give the same error, different repos? or is this cydia not working?
