    im still on itunes 8 and 3.0 i wont upgrade for a while there is nothing in 3.1 that i need or itunes 9. most of the programs that i use work fine on 3.0 and probably will not be completely upgraded for a bit.
    I wouldn't believe all the stuff you are reading about saurik upgrading hi servers or anything like that because there would have been an official post by them her on big bosses website , i clarified or on any of the hundreds of top iphone authorities i do believe there is a problem but they usually do not hide it from the community.
    but apple probably did do something in itunes 9 and os 3.1 which can ruin our JB the other reason i will not upgrade yet ! ( plus i am tired of having to re install everything all the time most of the package backups suck and only work half the time and it takes me hours and hours to finish getting it back the way i like, apple has become an evil empire lately and they should be ashamed of it. our community only helps them. anyway i am sure a fix for cydia will come out btw ryp isnt half bad

    iTunes connects to the internet everytime you run it and sync. it is totally possible that Apple added some type of hash that altered Cydia during a sync in recent days. Again, im NOT jumping on a rumor bandwagon here... but dont be so quick to rule this out if you obviously dont fully understand how iTunes works!!

    And I also find it oddly suspicious that nobody with inside knowledge has said anything about why Cydia has been messing up for several days now... Of course that could also mean there is NO issue, and this problem is somehow isolated and related to another app or tweak.

    Last night I had three upgrades showing as available (auto silent, sbsettings, and weathericon) but couldn't download as I received a strange "no size match" message. This a.m., however, all three downloaded and installed without a problem. Have to think this was a maintenance type of issue.

    (running 3.0 JB on 3GS, by the way)

    I cancelled the daownloading packages process since it was taking forever. Then Cydia listed what sources were not loading. Rupert Hee was at the top of the list each time I cancelled. I tested this 5 different times. Others were listed like BigBoss and Zodttd. But then I went to Manage then sources to see if any packages were listed in each repo listed in the error list. Rupert Gee was the only one with no packages. So I deleted that source. Now I am not not having any hanging issues with Downloading Packages.

    For me this was a source issue. Doesn't seem like the tyrant Apple is to blame THIS time. Hope that helps you guys.

    Forgot to mention I am running a JB iPhone 3GS firmware 3.0.1 with iTunes 9. Rupert Gee repo was my culprit.

    I'm surprised Saurik hasn't updated Cydia to auto detect when a source goes bad and have Cydia somehow alert the user or temporarliy disable the source or some kind of mechanism in Cydia to bypass bad sources. It would avoid a lot of issues.

    Thanks for the tip about the RupertGee source causing the problem. I'm using a jailbroken 3GS with OS 3.0.1 & iTunes9 on Windows 7. Past 2 days Cydia would just continually show it was downloading packages, no error or time out. I used iPhone Explorer to go in and delete the RupertGee source and Cydia works great now. Here is the path to the source --> />private>etc>apt>sources.list.d

    I also found I got errors with Easywakeup.net repo and iMobilecinema.com so I removed those as well and have no errors or hang ups.

    Yeah removing RupertGee makes Cydia work just like normal. Makes me wonder about that guy that said "I've been investigating this all day and Cydia is doing maintenance" since that's obviously not true now.

    see i dont have half of those sources and i still get incredible lag. i do believe it is because of rock your phone. i was not stating that apple is to blame for the problems with cydia lately, i was saying they probably did something within itunes 9 and 3.1 that has saurik and the rest of the repositories going nuts right now. if you go into to cydia and read some of the FAQS it will tell you what apple has done.

    Yes it worked... Thanks a million. Now it will display an error and will quit refreshing data. I wonder if it is because rupertgee is the first in the list that it hangs on. It will still display Error:refereshing data on sources like imobile cinima and rich creations. But now i can at least see the newer packages in my changes button.

    I dont think it matters what firmware for version of itunes you have, because i am on the newest that are different from yours and have the same problems. It seems to be a conflict with the rupert gee source which i removed and i still get errors but atleast cydia will quit refreshing.

    I don't see anything on the front page of Cydia that would lead me to believe Saurik or anyone else is going nuts. There are some repositories that went down or that were causing errors. This can be remedied pretty easily. Bottom line, if there was something seriously crippling to Cydia or all of the repositories, it would be affecting everyone and not just a few people. Since my Cydia is working fine now that I removed RupertGee, the other errors people are getting aren't the fault of Cydia or Apple.
