How to fix some mysterious problems.

Is Cydia running slow because of the amount of people on the servers today or have I done something wrong because when I load Cydia it's constantly saying "downloading releases" in the top right.

I previously had my iPad on the redsnow tethered jb and the GP jb worked brilliantly so I'm not sure if there is a problem or not

Help would be great.

I'm not a n00b at this honest I've been dev for a while now just need updating on the Cydia problem.

Cydia is almost definitely running slow because of the 2 million+ people jailbreaking right now. I suggest waiting a couple of days... If it doesn't clear up, check your wifi connection, or re-install cydia using redsn0w

Thought so. Thanks for the heads up and I'll give it a few days and see how it goes.
