Hi guys,

I'm attempting to jailbreak my device with the Evasi0n tool since yesterday but up till now, it is still not working. Whenever I click on the 'Jailbreak' button, it would show 'ERROR: Failed to retrieve package info from internet'.

This is very frustrating and I've tried to disable firewall, but still to no avail. Any help will be appreciated, thanks in advance.

Did you ever find out a solution to cydia reverting to the AppStore constantly? It's super annoying. Please let me know if you figured it out.

             that's a zero.
