i'm getting the same things. error: POSIX: operation time... up on the top bar after trying to download release for around 3-5 minutes.

i wasn't having this problem last night and this morning i decided to do a clean jailbreak since things were a little messy and cydia wasn't installing apps correctly. i assume this is the problem i was having. any info on this yet?

Just wait a few days until the excitement of the jailbreak dies down and the servers can recover from the huge amount of traffic they are receiving. The same thing happened after the release of the Spirit jailbreak for 3.1.3

It probably has something to do with some of the repo's going down.

I believe it is because the repos are under extreme load lately.

Please give cydia 3-5 minutes on wifi to download releases and package info. The most errors Im getting is from modmyi repo and bigboss repo only occassional. Give it time and it should be ok. My guess is they are just under heavy load as indicated above.

remember there are MANY of us hammering the saurik servers!

thousands, maybe millions? you should expect some slow and unresponsive cydia, or posix errors in few days.
