I haven't been on cydia for a while now and when i ve gone on and added a new source it's taking a long time to update, it's says updating sources and downloading packages with a blue progress line at the bottom which is near the end.

Does this usually take a while to update or has it crashed?

SCRAP CYDIA AND GET ROCK!!!!

Much better you need to sign up for it but its free it uses your email address to store all the apps you have so when you restore you can automatically put back on all the things you had before!

Like

Installous (awesome)
Winterboard (awesome)

Hope this helps

If you're not sure how to get it you need to download blackrain [url]www.blackra1n..com[/url] and make it rain. Simple done in about 1 minute then goto rain drop and instal ROCK!

yeah i'll look into rock but at the moment i'd like to get cydia sorted, so not really much of a help:)

Rock is the same as CYDIA!

Its the same people the same functions its just faster and relies on a login so you can backup and restore.

It has all the same sources!

even if i have already got it jailbroken?

sorry about all the questions but i dodn't want to brick it
#9
YES because blackra1n installs a black rain drop with options to unlock your iphone and to instal cydia or Rock!

No problem for the questions.

Blackrain is so easy, just make sure ituns is closed your phone is on and connected to your pc then run blackrain it will show up a box that says MAKE IT RAIN you press that and wait about 30 seconds it will say DONE then wait till it reboots then look for the rain drop and instal ROCK.

My phone just messed up tonight and thats why im on PC now. I have restored to factory settings but its great that I had rock as I instal it again and then restore it and all my apps and everythiong back saves so much time re downloading like I would of had to with Cydia!
#10
will i lose all the apps i have on it already through jailbreaking or will they still be there?
#11
Everything will stay the same you are not restoring your iphone you are just rejailbreaking all will be fine!
#12
well i've just tried it and it's stuck on the normal iphone recovery screen, the usb plug with itunes
#13
Did you follow instruction!

Itunes shut down!

Iphone plugged in to pc and turned on!

Click blackrain then click make it rain.


Thats it!!!!!!


If its stuck disconnect from pc, hold both home and power till it starts rebooting for hard reset. then when it comes back connect turn off itunes and try again!

yep, done everything in instructions, the picture didn't come up, just the normal itunes recovery mode picture, tried holding home and power button but it won't turn off

Did you download the windows one if you are on windows or mac if you are on mac?

If you hold them both down long enough the iphone will restart.

Send me a private message and I can reply with my number and you can ring me!

yeah i downloaded the windows one but it just got stuck at that, i've managed a hard reset and it's back to how it was..:) any idea as to why it would do that, do i need to upgrade to 3.1.2 first?
#17
blackrain should jailbreak all 3 firmwares. But yes you would be better on 3.1.2 but don't get through itunes as thats on 3.1.3 and then you'll be stuffed!
#18
Download firmware from somewhere else and then you can ask me if you need help knowing how to install from itunes but selecting your own firmware.
#19
Hurry if you need anymore help or send private message and Ill give you my number so you can text/call as Im going down to watch a film now and wont be on PC
#20
cheers, i'll try it again on 3.0 tomorrow because i don't really want to upgrade the firmware as i'll lose all the stuff i've got.

thanks for the help, i'll pm you if i get stuck again
#21
P.S. You won't lose anything!

I can show you how to backup your iphone including all apps and apps you have from installous then you will be fine. I only know all this as I did mine and 2 friends a week ago!

This went so much off topic. To answer your question. There was an issue with modmyi repo earlier today. It's been fixed now and refreshes fine.
