I used to be able to download torrents from anywhere - including TPB.
I don't know if the problem is a result of an update to some necessary package that I obtained through Cydia one time (prior to the latest Dtunes update) or if its a change within TPB (I know they were supposed to be going "offline" & were bought out or something and were only offline for like a day) or what.
Either way - downloading torrents is now hit or miss - no matter where I get the torrent from. I can probably find the fix once I analyze the torrent files on my desktop, but I'm lazy.
I have a good example to work with. There is a certain radio show that is uploaded daily - and the guy sends it to both TPB & IsoHunt - so I should just be able to compare the contents of the torrents to figure out why IsoHunt works and TPB doesn't anymore...I'll post updates if/when I get around to it.

The Pirate Bay, Demonoid & OpenBit Torrent trackers are ALL down right now...bummer & explains all the issue with downloading torrents the last few weeks..................

So I've got the fix for those folks who're timing out on DL'ing their torrents. Someone may want to copy/paste this info into another new thread - its up to you. Basically, the demonoid & pirate bay trackers are down from what I can tell. I'll give some quick background as to how this whole process works, and tell you how to get downloads to get started.
Once you download a torrent file, you normally then go into dtunes, where you select the torrent, and it creates a text file called "gettorrent". This "gettorrent" file contains the parameters for starting your download form the command line in the terminal program (./gettorrent).
ctorrent -p 51413 -P "-UT1610-" -A "uTorrent/1610"
You can lookup what all of the above means here (I'm not going to get into it): Enhanced CTorrent User's Guide
If you ever looked inside of a torrent file, it lists 1 or more trackers to use to find & DL the file(s) you want; most of my torrent files show either pirate bay or demonoid trackers - which aren't working for me & just timing out - SO, what you can do, is edit that "gettorrent" file to tell it to use one of the alternate trackers instead of demonoid or pirate bay trackers - and presto - it works just find.
To do this:
1. Download your torrent file
2. Go into dTunes and open the torrent so it says its prepped for you to run the ./gettorrent command
3. Use a program like iFile, and go to the "gettorrent" file that has been created (/var/mobile/gettorrent) and edit it using the Text Viewer.
4. Add in a "-u 2" (do not type the quotes)after where it says "ctorrent" and before it says "-p 51413" (you can try a value of 3, 4 or 5 too; this tells ctorrent to select one of the alternate trackers instead of the first 1 listed.)
5. Save the file & go into your terminal program and kick it off with ./gettorrent and it should start up!
Note: You may have to open up your torrent file to view the trackers listed. Most will list a pirate bay or demonoid tracker as the first one (depending on where you get your torrents I guess) and have several "aleternate ones" listed.
I do wish there was a way for the process to automatically move onto the next tracker after so many tries or minutes, but apparently there isn't - or I don't know how - so this is the best workaround.
Its really not as complicated as it looks & works like a charm for me!

btjunkie.org is still working very well with Dtunes and Ctorrent in Terminal. They may not have the selection. But if it is there it keeps working for me.
