    Cydia reporting HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error

    If youre receiving a HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error when trying to download packages in Cydia, dont worry. Practically everyone is getting that error now because Cydia is so incredibly busy now.

    Its the whole drinking from a fire hose analogy. Theres just too much traffic to handle all of the request because of the recently released Absinthe 2.0 jailbreak for iOS 5.1.1

    The thing that makes this jailbreak more significant than any other before it, is that its compatible with so many devices from the get go. Along with that, the Chronic Dev Team did an outstanding job getting things in order from a logistical standpoint.

    I dont think weve ever seen a Mac and Windows simultaneous release like we did today. Not only that, but Absinthe 2.0 works with Linux out of the gate too!

    Cydia will eventually smooth out, but youre going to have to be patient. This is an unprecedented jailbreak release, and everyone wants in on the action

    It took me 1 time to get xBackup downloaded and it restored everything but SbSettings,

    It took me 10 times for SbSettings. I do have it now, thank god. Cannot live without it.

    This has been a common thing with Cydia when a new jailbreak is out. Just traffic.

    Happened when the 4.2.3 jailbreak came out. Continued with 5.0/5.0.1

    Is traffic to blame for painfully slow 'downloading packages' after adding a new source?
