    But what If the system crashes ill just wait til it's cool down
    You're confusing what you can do after you jailbreak from what happens when you jailbreak.

    You download an application to run the jailbreak. This is the tool from evasi0n.com This tool uses local resources, your computer and device, to inject some code onto your phone and exploit vulnerabilities in the iOS software. This is done apart from any servers. The entire process is "don't touch your phone... don't touch your phone... ok, unlock and click one app... stop touching it again. don't touch it. ok it's done."

    The Cydia server crashing, which likely already happened, has no impact on your computer nor your device.

    Think about it this way. If you get an iPhone out of the box, you don't NEED to plug into iTunes and download from their servers to run your phone. Plugging into iTunes offers more functionality. Cydia is comparable to the jailbreakers App Store. Just because the store crashes doesn't mean anything on your phone is damaged as a result.

    Did the jailbreak at about 10am and didn't even attempt to try to add repos in Cydia.
    once I read this thread. 2:15PM and still can't add anything. I'm sure Saurik will be
    on this even after the traffic slows down.

    Managed to get biteSMS, everything else just fails one way or another.

    Guess I will just have to wait for the rush to die down. It sure ain't Cydia's fault!

    only thing I have gotten is the untethered update. Figured with all the excitement cydia servers would be slammed. May just wait and try again tomorrow morning, hopefully by then it will have died down a little.

    I was able to jailbreak and download messages+. All my other apps can wait for traffic to slow down. I couldn't bare living with the stock messaging app. It's just awful.

    I am trying to down load 5 icon dock and its saying theres an error with the package, and trying to install winterboard it starts but says "size mismatch".

    Is this all due to overload on cydia? or am I just stupid when it comes to jailbreaking?

    So far I managed to get:
    BiteSMS
    BytaFont (and download "Decker" which is the only font I use)
    iFile
    Safari download enabler

    And that's it. Still need NCSettings, Springtomize, MewSeek, iTransmission, and Safari Download Manager.

    That's where it went weird for me. I installed one source and everything was jacked up. So I uninstalled the source and things seemed to go a bit smoother. Maybe it was just the timing.
