Cydia’s And Evasi0n’s Servers Overloaded

Following the release of Evasi0n after many months of waiting for an iOS 6 jailbreak, there are a few bugs as mentioned in a previous article. Server overloads are not bugs, let me just point out, but they amount to the same thing. When I first reached within the minute of release, its servers were already clogged up and out of use. Google would not let me download the ‘attachment’. I was pretty annoyed, although then I realized a few minutes later, that there were mirror links below it to Mega, Rapidshare and Box. The Evad3rs had obviously anticipated heavy downloads, and their anticipation was necessary, and definitely served its purpose.

As PlanetBeing has been tweeting, they have gone through 4.2 terabytes just on the mirror. Just think about all of the bandwidth added together for the mirrors and the official link!

Saurik also went through precautions to prepare Cydia for the huge number of users about to use it. Although Saurik did his best to ready Cydia for the aftermath of the untethered jailbreak, it was to no avail, as most if not all of the packages and sources were unable to download, as many users including me found out a few short minutes after Evasi0n’s release. On my iPad Mini (the only iOS device I am lucky enough to own) I was greeted with errors upon trying to download  FullForce, “HTTP:/1.1 500 Internal Server Error” and “Size mismatch” amongst a few others.


I am sure as Cydia’s and major repositories servers become less busy, users will be able to access Cydia packages and sources. Have you experienced any errors with Cydia? If so, let us know what errors in the comments!

    I always get “NetDB: Open nodename nor servname provided or not known” & “I wasn’t able to locate the file for the applist package. This might mean you need to manually fix this package”.

  • Tiko

  • Matthew White

  • Tender Vittles

    Does anyone know if I purchase a tweak on my iPad, if I can install it on my iPhone as well? Or do I have to purchase it twice?

  • Jay Pimentel

    I have not been able to download any tweaks because of this “HTTP:/1.1 500 Internal Server Error”. It sucks.

  • Brawndo

    I saw the same thing as well- a patch to untether a tethered device jailbreak maybe?

  • jkucz2

    Go into Manage Account in cydia once its up and running you should be able to restore purchases within there

  • Michael Scott Allen

    This is actually frustrating enough that I just restored away my Jailbreak.

    It’s ludicrous. I have nothing but paid apps and the one function of getting to my paid apps is still down and not getting any attention.

    I don’t care enough about a theme or two to deal with it.

  • Benlego65

    I feel so sorry for y’all. I’ve been on an untethered jailbreak (3GS old bootrom) for a while now, been able to download tweaks without fear of overload.

  • Adam Markon

    This patch was an update to the system used to untether previously tethered iOS 6 jailbreaks, but does not affect Cydia or newly jailbroken devices.

  • Reekz

    there are similar apps which are just like installous. i use VShare

  • Reekz

    who wants an oval shaped 3Gs?

  • Brett Manahan

    Whenever I click on Cydia, it always go to Preparing File for around a minute, reboots, then goes to my lock screen. I tried manually rebooting, but it didn’t help. Any ideas?

  • Killa cam

    I come up with all kinds of errors when i download packages

  • Ethyn Resausk

    Installous has been shut down as of December 31st It’s been mentioned a lot and by the founder himself due to inactivity of the forums. Appsync for iOS 6+ is still very much alive however. As well as crackulous from other repositories. Their are other things you can install however similar to installous like vShare, and Appcake from cydia though I find them really ghetto looking compared to the nice looking Installous we once knew, My advice download Appsync for iOS 6 from Bl00dRa1n Repo and download the cracked apps from Appcake and installing them via SSH/PC

  • Ethyn Resausk
