    I paid for this app a long time ago, took a break from jailbreaking, and now with the new blackra1n, decided to jailbreak again.

    So I install Cydia and it recognizes my iPhone and says install because I already bought it.

    Then I click to download and get "Host Unreachable" when I try to download it, any suggestions :(

    Keep trying I have had that issue before I think Cydia is getting slammed with all the requests to the servers etc today.

    Though be lucky you were even able to jailbreak on 3.1.2 I keep going into a recovery loop

    oh man that sucks =/ I was on official 3.1.2, used my bootcamp'd XP. Restored in iTunes, then ran blackra1n and it JB'd, then I restarted in mac mode and sync'd my songs/apps. Hope it gets fixed, I've been frustrated like that before

    That's because you upgraded to 3.1.2, not restored to it. If you just click upgrade in iTunes it patches your current firmware with updates. You need to restore if you want a brand new version of 3.1.2.

    Try it with a WIFI connection on the phone. I did that and it immediately worked.

    I updated to the latest carrier update through iTunes and I have a feeling it is blocking the BigBoss server.

    Carrier update should have no effect on WiFi connection thru Cydia.

    Cydia is just getting hit like crazy due to Blackra1n and all the new and re-done jailbreaks.

    I think you misunderstood me. I was unable to install 3G Unrestrictor while on the 3G network. I got the host unavailable message.

    I switched to WIFI and it worked immediately.

    I think the carrier update is blocking the host server on 3G.

    Unless I can't read, nowhere in your OP does it say you were trying this on a 3G connection.

    Maybe I should not have assumed, but Cydia is usually accessed only thru WiFi due to much quicker downloads and reloads of the repos.
