How to fix some mysterious problems.

I bought MyWi 4 and have been trying to download it for the last 30 minutes but I keep getting a fetching error or the "running" that goes no where and results in some Posix(?) errors. It's been off and on since I jailbroke my iphour yesterday.

Thanks guys, i finally just got the error that told me it is a file host error and that it failling to fetch. Its crazy to imagine how many people are jailbreaking now days. Just wait until Verizon comes out with their Iphones :(

The repo must be having some issues. We can't resolve that on our end. Don't worry you're not the only person having these issues. The servers are probably getting pounded from the users trying to download a lot of stuff.

I'm willing to be bet that traffic to big boss and modmyi repos will significantly drop when the Super Bowl is on.. just a hunch.. Otherwise make sure you are downloading from the Cydia Store.. not some piracy repo!
