Hello, Every time I try to use Evasi0n7 to jailbreak I keep getting the message "ERROR: failed to retrieve package info from the internet" I live in the US so i dont think I need to use a hot spot shield thing, what can I do to fix this?

Something is blocking your internet connection from retrieving files. Try disabling firewall, antivirus or use a different connection.

It can also mean your internet connection is to slow! I had this problem when using hot spot on my 5s over 3g to jailbreak a iPhone 5!!

I think it's either it's a bad address or the connection problem, man. It's between those two. It's gotta be the connection.

Thanks for the help, I updated my antivirus and moved closer to my slow modem and it worked.
