Pffft, I was enough of a badass to tap the screen while jailbreaking.

I agree, it does sound useful. Unfortunately, I can't think of any definition for 'precise GPS data' that you can't access through a number of (free) apps available on the App Store.

So I'm also curious about what he meant.

It seemed to have kernel panic'd in the tradition of when a Mac computer does as the grey shaded screen slowly descended from the top, no text appeared, and it rebooted prior to the grey shading reaching the bottom of the screen (this was in landscape).

It rebooted as normal, and cydia was on home screen, tapped it, cydia did its thing and then respiring.

Tapped cydia again, trouble refreshing (totaly expected, cydia getting crushed right now).

Long story short all seems fine.

To those experiencing troubles, be glad you can open Cydia at all. Jay altered something in anticipation of this release, since servers always get slammed. So, it opens and can deal with some things, but if you have to access the servers, just be prepared to wait. I'd find a link about this, but even getting to blog pages is difficult right now.

Be patient. Once the servers aren't being hit, you'll be able to see stuff.

Last time I checked, there were lots of free apps in the App Store. Could you be referring to paid apps that are stolen? Just checking.

So it is safe to say that the server is overloaded and thats the reason for all of the error codes coming back when I try to install a tweak?

I usually make my icons a little bigger, and then hide all the basic Apple stuff off my screen so I can have only one screen with my own folders and apps that I bought from the App Store. That and make it so my folders have infinite amount of room since I have maybe one or two more apps that don't fit in that 16 app limit.

Over 10% of people jailbreak! That's no small number. Dammit the cydia servers are slammed as a result.

weird, I tried it on my non-retina ipad 4 and it blew up in my face. Good thing you specified which one you had or this thread could get confusing!

You're the one missing the point, but I also see your point. As someone not interested in jailbreaking my devices, I also don't feel restricted in any way by iOS. There isn't anything that I need that I can't already get legitimately.

Did anybody else's JB'd device jump 5 hours into the future? My iPod seems to think it's 6pm instead of 1pm.

Extremely quick and easy JB. Thank you guys!!

Now just need to wait for Cydia traffic to die down. Will be great to have SBSettings again as well as removing app icon names, and infinifolders. Seems like that's all I use jailbreak for nowadays.

Wonder if we'll be able to allow facetime calls over 4G/LTE now. I think it's ridiculous that Sprint and Verizon allow this and while AT&T is starting to get on board, those of us that have grandfathered data plans do not. What a load of crap.
