For all those folks who have updated their devices to the iOS 5.0.1 firmware and untethered jailbroken their idevice using RedSn0w 0.9.10b2, Corona 5.0.1 or PwnageTool 5.0.1, you might have noticed that Cydia is running slowly, it being sluggish, timing out. Calm down and don’t freak out because we have really high hopes from the jailbreak community that they will fix it as soon as possible. Let’s have a look at other aspects of this issue.
Apart from just getting slow, you can also face other errors like community sources (BigBoss, ModMyi etc.) are not functioning, cannot refresh Cydia, Cydia is slothful, dawdling and unresponsive or you cannot download Cydia tweaks then it is merely due to the servers powering these vital Jailbreak services like the BigBoss repo, ModMyi repo and even Cydia are under a lot of load.
We are familiar with the fact that due to the recent releases of the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak tools, numerous users have already jailbroken their devices and added repos to download jailbreak tweaks. Various people are trying to make use of Cydia at the same time as well. The servers of cydia are not capable of managing this much heavy traffic and as a result cydia is responding slow. We hope that the management team will soon upgrade the servers to cop up with this much heavy traffic.
So don’t worry, it is just a phase of time. It will be fixed very soon. Sadly, there isn’t any solution of this issue.
Meanwhile, you may like to attempt using Cydia at night when there is a lesser amount of online activity.
