When I add a repository or try to install something cydia seems to take for ever to download what I want does anyone know why?

The repos are getting pounded. All we can do is wait it out.

Because jailbreak release is fresh and thus a lot of people are using cydia at the moment. At least your stuff is downloading, mine won't even do that. Just give it a couple of days, should be back to normal soon. Also, try downloading really late at night when there isn't as much traffic,

Ok I hope it's just the repo's because I don't want to have to wait until sn0wbreeze 2.2 comes out and jailbreak with it. Does this seem to happen with you 0x00
