    have you ever gotten it to download anything successfully? if so, next time you go into installer, go into an app to install, hit install and when the menu comes up from the bottom, hit clear queue. see if that helps

    Yes, I re-started my iPhone after trying to install a program and I also try to clear queue; it still does it. I want to install the PDF/DOC/XLS Viewer but it needs to install Lightpd & PHP. I successfully installed the Lightpd but everytime I try to install the PHP from Developement with the Installer I get that error message. (ERROR package download failed!)
    Before I succesfully installed a couple of other app. but I can't install the one I really want. Any help would be very appreciated! Thank you in advance. George.

    um if that's the case, i have no idea. i thought that if you've never been able to download anything successfully and that you've just recently rejailbroken that maybe it's a permission issue...

    maybe someone else has encountered the problem and has a solution...sorry!

    As a matter of fact, most of the time it does it when the app. says that it is coming from an untrusted source. Do you think that this would be the reason why it does not go through? Once again thank you for your help! George.

    no. you're still able to download apps from untrusted sources so that shouldn't be it. perhaps try restoring and jailbreaking again? i know that's always an undesirable option but i've run out of ideas...
