How to fix some mysterious problems.

I jailbroke my iPhone 4 on iOS 5.0.1 and when I open it, the Bigboss and Dev team repo has no packages in it. Why isn't there any packages in there and how can I fix it?

Thanks but now it makes the keyboard clicks which I turned off in settings but only in cydia it makes the sound not in safari or any other app, why?

The repositories that host packages for Cydia are being slow today since there are so many users trying to look at packages. Wait a few hours and try opening up Cydia again, and then wait for "Reloading Data" to finish.

As @britta said, Cydia is getting hammered right now just like @curly420.

as I was making my comment I was checking my wife's 3G and I was able to go to all places without any problem and as fast as 3G can be.

I had the same problem. delete the bigboss source then goto cydia home page and click on more package sources and add big boss. all should be fine then

If that's the case, why i didn't have such problem with 3g which was able to update three apps. My 3Gs 5.01 jail broken an hour ago without a glitch is absolutly unable to see anything on Cydia. Cydia is not blank, it opens "Manage", I can see installed packages, but no repositories, no "search" able to find anything, "saurces" are empty. "Changes" see nothing. Any idea what's going on?

Sounds like you have a different problem then. :( What method did you use to upgrade/jailbreak? You'll probably need to restore and jailbreak again.

I used new version of redsn0w and as I said, the whole process was without a glitch and it kept my official unlock. Cydia is brown all initial packages are installed. I can see my shsh blobs saved. JB is untethered.

If Sources is totally empty, something is wrong. I'm not sure why. You'll need to restore and jailbreak again.
