So I jailbroke my iPhone 6 yesterday on iOS 8.4 wasn't aware the big boss repo wasn't working, now I can't added back again. I already tried to restore my phone using the Cydia Impactor, jailbroke my phone again, tried to open Cydia to see if I had the repo again and it turns out it didn't add it? Why? I need help.

  1. You cannot add default repos manually, you have to do it from "More package sources" on the main cydia page.
  2. Bigboss is having issues. See this similar post and here's another one.

I did that, but I always get the typical message saying "did not find repository".

Did you try from another network?

Yes others work just fine. Or could it be that the repo still down? Not Sure. Looks like that source is the one with the most tweaks because I haven't been able to download anything atm.

No thebigboss repo is online. Maybe someting in yout wifi blocks the repo?
