    The server is under maintenance, therefore the host unreachable error. When it comes back online you should be able to update with no problems.

    Thanks, any idea how long it would take until the sever is back online?

    It could be a few days, Saurik has a lot of work to do on it to make it ready for ios 7. I'm not him so I can't give you a definite time it will be back up fully functioning

    Start a new thread it'll be more helpful and more people can help you. And no it won't brick the phone if DFU mode fails.

    My suggestion just try it once with Vodafone Carrier doesn't matter 2g or 3g network ! On 2g it will take 8-10mins to refresh !! ( keep your device alive )
    Once it done upgrade your phone then later you can use with any carrier even airtel broadband and everything work fine ! whenever you install tweaks & apps by apt.saurik.com try not to use AIRTEL network !

    hope it will help you folks

    Arpan. I don't understand, if Saurik's repo is under maintenance then by using a different operator, how is it going to work?
    There is something definitely wrong here. If the repo is under Maintenance, there is NOTHING that can make it work till the time the repo isn't back up again.

    If you have ifile installed:

    Open this link in safari on you iOS device:

    http://cydiaupdates.net/pkg/mobilesubstrate

    Then tap on the version number that is underlined it should start downloading the deb file. Then tap open in ifile in the top right corner. Then when it opens in ifile tap installer from the popup menu or tap on the file to bring up the popup menu.

    Also, the link leads to apt.saurik. A page that does not seem to load on 3G and neither does it load on my wifi

    Without the dependencies ifile would probably crash. I'm not sure if terminal will work for cydia substrate though cause the phone has to reboot/respring after installing it.

    I have to say that with the info in this thread is seems like saurik's repo is somehow being "blocked" where you are.
