Thread: Strange problem with Cydia on Jailbroken 2.1 iPhone 3G (Error -2096)

    Default Strange problem with Cydia on Jailbroken 2.1 iPhone 3G (Error -2096)
    Hi,

    I've recently upgraded my iPhone from 2.0.1 to 2.1 and have been pretty pleased with the results. However, I'm having trouble with Cydia and my 3G/GPRS connection.

    When I attempt to get updates or download apps using my 3G connection, Cydia fails to download any updates. The error messages popping up at the top of Cydia alternate between "Unknown HTTP Error: -2096" and "POSIX: No such File or Directory". I'm also unable to install any apps as I get the same -2096 error. I get similar errors when I run apt-get update through terminal.

    The 3G connection works fine in everything else (e.g. Mail, Safari, Youtube, MXTube, Jaadu VNC) and I am able to download apps and updates for Cydia with my home's WIFI connection. I was previously able to use my 3G connection in Cydia while on FW 2.0.1.

    Does anyone know what's causing the problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    P.S. Attached below is a portion of my Cydia log which was recorded when I attempted to update my sources with my 3G connection.

    Problem solved (I think)!

    I removed this from my preferences.plist and it seems to be working better now...

    <key>Proxies</key>
    <dict>
    <key>ProxyAutoConfigEnable</key>
    <integer>1</integer>
    <key>ProxyAutoConfigURLString</key>
    <string>file:///private/var/preferences/proxy.pac</string>
    </dict>

    Hello
    I have a different problem with Cydia : when opening it it is stuck in dowload, and shows the error message "Unable to load (timed out)". I just upgraded to 2.1. I tried to remove some additional sources it didn't help. Now the sources are original.
    Please if you have any idea.

    Interesting issue.

    i upgraded to 2.2 with unlock but cydia always says host unreachable...i try downloading using different rep aside telesphoreo, they seem to work fine...what should i do?

  8. #7
    I have a weird problem with cydia. I am on 2.1 firmware and recently i had tried installing Snapture again(cuz even after 100 tries it still doesnt work). Anyways the problem is that when i tried to install snapture again it said that one of the files(PageAbout.xxx) could not be overwritten cuz it was already a part of some package. After that day Snapture is always present in the download queue. Whatever i try to do ie either install a new app / remove an existing app/ upgrade an app cydia always downloads Snapture first and tries to install it and then pops - up the same error.Earlier cydia would show that error and then continue with installing the new app..but off late the new app doesnt get installed...cydia just finishes the installation process after that error msg n i get the return to cydia option.

    This is getting really irritating as i have to compulsorily download an extra 1.1MB everytime i try to do something on cydia.

    Could some1 please tell me if there is any way to clear this from the install queue.

    Hi
    I had this kind of problem and it was solved like this :
    I installed from Cydia the Bosstool: and then I run it : it frees some memory from the RAM that is occupied by Cydia database.
    Then you will see in Cydia/Manage/Storage that you have enough free memory, and this helps when trying to install new apps from Cydia.
