    I remember i had random problems like that in the past. I am currently using 2 installers meant for the same thing: Cydia and Icy. Should one fail for whatever task and whatever reason, I use the other one. Try downloading Icy through Cydia and then try to get Winterboard from that.

    PS: i know this isn't a propper solution, but it helped me many times with such problems

    Should be called just "Icy". Quickly searched it on my Cydia:

    "Icy
    from Ripdev (Packaging)"

    maybe you don't have the ripdev source. In cydia, go to "Manage", then "Sources". Tap on "Edit" then "Add" and add:

    Code:
    http://apt.ripdev.com/
    edit: after adding the source make sure to have cydia reloaded otherwise it won't include anything from the newly added source on your searches.
