    Upgraded to 4.3.2 then JB with Redsn0w. Used PKGBackup to restore JB apps and springboard layout, repos etc. I have not seen a updates in Cydia since. Anybody else experiencing this?

    I have 65 JB packages and not a one has been updated in a week. Hard to believe.

    Pretty easy to believe considering for a considerable amount of time Cydia had issues due to Amazon.

    I also wondered the same as I have not seen any updates either and i usually get one or two - generally check daily as well.

    Assumed was due to the outage and not the jailbreak though

    and your point? I am fresh out of cookies. Cydia has been down everything was already updated for 4.3.2 and it was a holiday last weekend. When those powers combine there aren't gonna always be updates. Its not a big deal

    Either believe there haven't been any updates or believe you have a Cydia problem. Your choice.

    The Cydia store was down due to the Amazon EC2 problems meaning that you could not browse Cydia store apps or pay for them. Cydia still functions whether or not Saurik's repo and web site are up or down. I have many other repos configured. And Cydia as an app will still function to go out to those repos and see if there are new packages and updates for existing packages.

    So I am trying to figure out if Cydia on my iPhone is broken or not.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Looks to be working now. Have had just a few updates in the past weeks. Rather strange.

    Still on 4.3.1 but haven't received updates in weeks. Used to receive them daily.

    i literally hate pkgbackup sometimes. it worked for me once maybe 1 or 2 years ago... i didnt install it today.. well, i did, then it messed up, and cydia had 0 sources and 0 installed apps..

    i jb 4.3.2 and used pkgbackup, did everything correct... but of course cydia didnt load like you are saying..

    i re jb with pwnage again, and what i do is write all my apps and sources in my notes dashboard app. i have about 20 apps/tweaks, it all took about 45 minutes to get everything back to normal. i will not be using pkgbackup again.

    The issue with PKGBackup was that it did not respect the new format for Cydia default repos such as saurik, big boss etc. It added them in to the cydia.list file and made duplicates that cydia could not download updates from. It took me quite some time to figure out how to clean cydia up. Many of the online tutorials have not been updated to reflect cydia 1.1.1 changes.

    Other than that PKGBackup rocks. I updated my iPhone from 4.3.1. to 4.3.2 then did the JB, downloaded PKGBackup and had every thing (well just about everything) back up and running in 45 minutes. That is pretty amazing. Things that did not restore properly were apps or tweaks purchased through the cydia store such as mywi and inspell. But that was simple enough to just re-download them.

    Its working now as I stated earlier. But there have been very few updates in the past 2 weeks. I used to get updates just about daily.
