    EDIT:: Tried erasing and re-adding the sources, and when I type them in exactly as they were listed, I get a popup error saying I am probably adding legacy installers, or need to type in the exacturl.
    You realize that Internet servers have outages sometimes. Did you just retry to refresh multiple times over several hours? Have you tried pinging the source urls from the same wireless network your iPad is on?

    Yes, sometimes Cydia's servers get overloaded and the best action is to try again. One tip, however, is to go to Cydia and be on the Changes tab. In the upper left corner is the Refresh button. Press that and then wait - while doing nothing else (in Cydia or on the iPad). Allow the servers to update your iPad's account and packages. This may take a bit of time but have patience.

    Once all the packages have loaded (and you've seen no error notices), then everything should be god to go; you'll be able to browse and search Cydia with all the packages showing. Again, the key is to hang in there with patience. Have to have time to work/load...

    Good luck.

    Edit to add: And you don't need to mess with the default sources. That's a good way to get your repos and lists all messed up - and it's very much NOT recommended. Again, just hit the Refresh button and wait. It will load up the repos and such, but it's very dependent on your Internet speed and the amount of demand on Cydia's server(s).

    I'm JB on 5.0.1 on my iPad2. Is there any advantage of having 5.1.1 JB? Does 5.1.1 over any new/good features that 5.0.1 doesn't have?

    Hi everyone! I have just joined and am making my first post, perhaps prematurely as I haven't read all previous posts yet.

    I spent several days trying to JB my ipad2,2 with ios5.1.1 using Absinthe 2.0.4 on my iMacG5 (PPC) under OSX 10.5.8. No luck. It would always fail near end (after reboot and Waiting for process to complete) Hmmm...there seems to be a problem.

    Today I tried with a Mac-mini (Intel) using OSX 10.5.8. JB completed just fine. So ...

    Absinthe requires an Intel Mac, although it will run on PPC it will not work. This should be explicitly stated on the greenpois0n site, but isn't.

    Repeat, Absinthe requires an Intel Mac! redsn0w also requires an Intel Mac (won't run on PPC even).

    I have been trying unsuccessfully to JB my iPad 2,1 using Absinthe 2.0.4 and a MacBook intel duo core OSX 10.7.2. The process stalls at "waiting for reboot". I'm still in jail.

    Whenever I would click reload it didn't do anything. Normally it sits at "Packages: Done" forever, but it just flashes the black bar and seems to show that it's done reloading.

    And yes, I'm not stupid, I know servers go down, but it's been giving me the same response each of the last 20+ times I've tried at all hours of the day the last two days.

    You need to check your Internet connectivity. It has to be a problem of getting to the servers to load the packages. If you are on a company network they may have prevented that at the firewall.

    Just jail broke my ipad 3,3. I didn't clear my data first ( i don't have a lot of apps or media), i did however back it up in itunes in case. Used 2.0.4 on windows and it didn't even take 5 minutes.

    Uggghh. I just successfully jail broke my ipad2 and cydia did not install? I tried to go back and run absinthe again and it told my my device was already jail broken. No cydia notice ever showed up for me. Do I need to go download it?

    I am running iTunes from a windows7 pc. I am clueless as to why I don't see the cydia store.
