    I just jailbroke my iPad2 with Absinthe 2.0. Seemed to work well. The Cydia icon shows up. When I try to install apps that I have already purchased I keep getting HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Errors as well as occ Hash Sum mismatch errors. Also some apps (PKGBackup for one) wont show any of the details when selecting them. I have tried hard reset. Any other suggestions.

    What you are experiencing is the "hammering" that the Cydia servers are getting. Now that everyone is jailbreaking their various iOS 5.1.1 devices, they are going right to Cydia. It's putting too much of a load on the servers.

    All I can recommend is to keep trying. This will continue for a while (heck, when the jail break for the iPhone 4S came out, the servers were wonky for days!).

    Hang in there, it'll just take some time.

    Thanks,
    This is the first time I've run a Jailbreak on release day. I have tried the installs several times and was finally able to get PKGBackup to install and restore my backup. It all looks good for now. Persistence pays off.

    I am getting the same errors today, I will keep trying.

    I am not able to load any apps in Cydia at all, and then when I search for SB Settings or GV Extension, another app comes up, Iphone Firmware (/sbin)

    Does that happen to anyone else?

    Thanks for having an answer to this question so quickly. I mainly wanted to install pkgbackup from cydia so that I could restore my apps from dropbox. I too got the hashsum error. So, I just tried to install it several times. On about the sixth time it went through to completion. Must have got a brief window in the cydia onslaught...

    cydia not opening after jailbreaking with absinthe 2.0.1

    cydia not opening after jailbreaking new ipad with absinthe 2.0.1
    i followed exactly the steps in "absinthe 2.0.1" readme, jailbreaking was successful but when i open cydia it just closes itself.
    is it possible to re-jailbreak? i tried but it says the device is already jailbroken

    It's just the servers at Cydia being overloaded. You may have to open it several times or even wait a couple of days.

    I had the same errors coming up a lot. I just kept persistent and kept on trying to install and finally packages was installing first time around more frequently.
