    So, I had BSD working fine on my other iPhone, but that had a dead area on the screen so I returned it. Now, when I go to install BSD subsystem, it:
    - fails if using WiFi ('Download Failed: can't connect to host')
    - downloads using Edge, but won't unpack (gives failure to unpack msg)
    - or just sits there and spins

    Other apps I download install fine, the ones that don't require BSD (not a lot).

    Anyone know whats going on here? This was so easy to do before!

    Make sure your connection allows you to connect to a secured ftps or https! I think the new BSD repository is on a secure server. So let say you are sharing a connection through your macbook airport for your iPhone connection it wont work! You need to connect to the internet directly!

    i had same problem so bsd_subsystem download failed!
    it was becaz http://home.cogeco.ca/~nullriver/BSD_Subsystem.zip link in installer was blocked from my ISP!
    so i download it manually and then upload it to iphone (using ssh or in my case iphonebrowser for windows) in /private/var/root/Library/Installer/Temp.
    then click on install button on bsd_subsystem in installer! just this! it will install!

    u can install all 3rd party app with this method!
