if you are using a firewall disable it and restart the computer or allow the program to connect to the internet it must do this to get the package files to perform the jailbreak.

It seems many, if not all Singaporeans are getting this error. Simply use your phone's hotspot. Works with my Starhub phone. (Of course do not use the phone you want to Jailbreak.)

Disable any antivirus/firewall. Failing that, try a vpn such as http://www.hotspotshield.com/.

Do you happen to be in Singapore?

You're the third guy with this error in Singapore tonight. Run the vpn software and then try the jailbreak.

to add on , previously I've tried to JB, but there were some problem. 2nd try after restoring , then the error from the installer shows that. Equally surprised.

Thanks, but we know. :D The issue in this thread is not the same as the current issue, as the current issue affects everyone who uses evasi0n7.
