    i keep trying to add a source in cydia and it keeps getting stuck on downloading packages and at the top it says updating sources.

    it has done this on every source that i have tried to add. why?

    ^^^^^
    none of that matters.


    OP, did you just start doing this? The repos you may be adding might not be up, or even Cydia might be down. Try again later. If it’s done this for days, that is another matter.

    im adding cydia.xsell...com and it was working before, but now that i restored to new and trying to add the source back again it just hangs at "updating sources above, and downloading packages below."

    why is that? i didnt have a problem adding it a couple days ago, when traffic was probably worse.

    How do you know what traffic was like? :) Also, you have no idea if the source has issues. It happens all the time with sources. Get used to it. Anyway, try later or tomorrow.

    i agree with you too. but i have tried 3 other sources too. could it be something worng with the jailbreak since i jailbroke my ip4 then retored and rejailbroke it again. is cydia thinking i already have these repo sources and thats why it is hanging?

    do what -aggie- said wait a little servers are being flooded right now so they are going up and down or at the very least bogged down. since op didn't say anything about how he was jailbreaking I just wanted to see how he was doing it. reason I asked.

    so you think that its just because its getting slammed right now what its freezing? nothing to do with having cydia installed the deleted and reinstalled again? i was just afraid that it recognized that i had been in cydia before and installed those exact sources before and thats why it messed it up.

    either way i did a full restore and will re-jb again in an hour after restoring from clean backup
