    Unhappy Please help! A bunch of Cydia errors
    i had seen these errors before and rejailbroke my ipod but when i start up cydia i still get this
    " Error: Refreshing Data
    Failed to fetch
    http://apt.modmyi.com/dists/stable/Release.gpg Host Unreachable

    Failed to fetch http://apt.saurik.com/dists/tangelo3...rm/Packages.gz Cached Failure

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

    Can someone please help me fix this?


    I also cannot install apps on cydia on ipod touch because of "dependencies" not being found. everytime i try to install an app, it tells me to cancel/queue it because of depencies like winterbaord, btstack, and others not being present; it seems like every dependency for every thing cant be found. What is with this? Can anyone help me fix this? (i have a lot of errors that occured and i asked about them in a question earlier, so check out my questions asked for more info)

    Default solution to "host not reachable" (saurik)
    I had the same issue. I don't know what it is exactly related to, but here is a way around:
    Basically, you need to replace the path to the Cydia repository. The file containing the path is called saurik.list and sits in /etc/apt/sources.list. on your iPhone/iPad.
    the file should read like this:

    # do not edit this file to add your own custom sources
    # this file is subject to be upgraded as part of a package
    # either add your own .list file to /etc/apt/sources.list.d
    # or add your entry to the global /etc/apt/sources.list file

    deb Index of /cydia/ tangelo-3.7 main
    #deb-src Index of / tangelo main

    Please note, the difference is only the "..../cydia" which is missing in the original file.

    You need to get access to this file. I have used iphone explorer (on a mac) and connected the iphone by USB to the mac. In the iphone explorer, select 'Change Root' button and select the top left "/" directory. Here you might get into trouble as it might say that you are not jail broken and you cannot select this directory.

    For that, install on your iPhone/iPad the package "afc2add" from apt.ModMyi.com repository. (This works because it doesn't rely on saurik rep).

    Now you can access the root directory of your iPhone/iPad and change the entry in saurik.list

    EDIT: nevermind, the problem is gone, i believe the problem had to do with the cydia servers so they must have fixed it
