    Actually that was just posted recently, as of the first posts concerning this issue, mine included, it wasnt there earlier today. But thanks for your useful post.

    Default How to fix POSIX error on iPhone
    I also kept getting that error message error POSIX timed out or whatever, I couldn't read it all. But from what everyone has said, I understand it is a problem with the repositories. So, what I did was begin removing repositories one at a time until I quit getting that damn message. It worked for me, no more error message, and I figure if I find I want a package, I can always install the repository that it is contained in to get it. I wouldn't have figured it out without reading the earlier post, so thank you guys, Have a good one, Zerotee.

    Had this errOr for the SAM prefs actual app. Would not connect over wifi. Read this post that someone turned off wifi and it worked. I did the same and sure as s___ it worked like a charm. Now to try and install those apps. Wassup with that?
