Evasi0n NetDB Open nodename Internal Server Error and POSIX errors in Cydia

With the recent release of Evasi0n 1.0 for iOS6, literally hundreds of thousands of people are slamming the Cydia servers and repos right now, trying to get all their favorite jailbreak tweaks installed. Unfortunately, all this congestion means that it is going to be more-or-less impossible for anyone to install anything for the next few hours. No matter what you try to install, you will likely be met with a red error in Cydia along the lines of "NetDB: Open nodename nor servname provided, or not known." "HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error" or "POSIX: Operation timed out"


Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do about this but wait. Eventually the traffic will even out and calm down as more people get their devices jailbroken and then Cydia should start running smoothly again. This is an unfortunate downside of every jailbreak due to the demand placed on the servers upon initial release.

  28. Jose Privado says:

    I assumed most of you Jailbreakers knew about these failures during every JB Release.

    New things you starters should know.

  29. Awl1987 says:

    What about the ” bad gateway” message….does that have something to do with it too??

  30. Never_Make says:

    iOS itself is shit. What the hell did they think? – OMG WE NEED TO PUT AN UNUSEFULL APP ON THE HOME SCREEN AND CALL IT PASSBOOK!
    What shall we delete?
    -F$@cking Newsstand

    GASH i fucking hate ios… ;_;
    I LUV EVASI0N! <3

    • Rastaman says:

      you hate ios so much, why didnt you get an android?!

    • JaeM1llz says:

      That decision actually makes sense when you think about it. Google is one of Apple’s strongest competitors and YouTube is, of course, owned by Google. They got rid of the YouTube app for the same reason they got rid of Google Maps.

    • Shane Bryson says:

      Just switch to Android. Newsstand gets used every single day on my iPhone, so does Passbook, and stocks. The old YouTube app sucked. Download the new one, way better. You’re an idiot, seriously.

  31. Jkjakob says:

    Thank you so much for the heads up!

  32. Good to know.

    Gives me more time to fuck around modding my PSP. Haha

  33. AM says:

  35. ModMyiOS says:

  36. Lorenzo says:

  37. Jsdodgers says:

    Took me about an hour to download SBSettings!

  38. Kyle says:

    Phew… I was scared iPhone 4 was close to death ><

  39. jAiLbReAkeD says:

    Why do american people just dont wait for europeans to finish installing all their sources and tweaks then americans can use them so there will be less traffic…….

  40. trollerd says:
