    Default POSIX Error

    Is there anyway to fix the permanent POSIX error in Cydia?

    "POSIX error: Operation Timed Out": Make sure your device has access to the internet and try again. If this error keeps happening, it is likely caused by a repository server being temporarily offline. Try again later. You can also choose to remove the repository.

    The only thing that I have found to work is completely rejailbreaking the device.

    The problem is not temporary and despite what the message says, it seems to have nothing to do with a server in any way. It is possible for a device to get this message, and will continue to repeat this message indefinitely every time Cydia is launched. I don't know why. Once I rejailbroke my iPad the problem instantly disappeared.
