    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...

    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.

    First jailbreak ever on my iPhone4S and all free apps on Cydia are giving me the error Cannot Locate Package and the free is in grey.
    What could be wrong?

    Its the servers getting hammered with hundreds of thousands of people all trying to access them. Give it time, keep trying, also go to changes and hit refresh

    I'm having the same problem as Ganeshx. I did the jailbreak on my ipad with no problem, however, after I did the jailbreak on my iPhone 4 Cydia itself won't open. I try to open it, and it closes right away. If you try to re-jailbreak, absinthe says the device is already jailbroken. I've tried doing full resets and restores with no luck. Erasing all the data on my phone, nor a restore is removing Cydia.

    So long story short, Cydia won't open. I can't reinstall Cydia via absinthe, and I can't remove Cydia with restores or resets. Any ideas?

    EDIT: I reinstalled the firmware via iTunes. Cydia is now gone, but absinthe is now saying that the device is unsupported

    EDIT 2: Ok... I think I mucked it up now. Just read that Apple pushed out a new update for the iPhone 4 (5.1.1 (9B208)) earlier today. Safe to guess that this is the reason why absinthe is now saying my device is unsuppoted. So take that as a warning.

    EDIT 3: (Last edit, I hope). I was able to download and reinstall 5.1.1 (9B206) since Apple is still signing it. Absinthe detected, installed, and everything works.

    My problems with Cydia appeared to abate once I did this: '
    1. Tapped "Change" on the lower bar
    2. Tapped "Refresh" in the upper left-hand corner
    3. Went and got a beer while I waited for the slow (due to high demand, no doubt) process of refreshing my list of intalled apps.
    4.. Occassionally have to try to download two or three times, but I haven't been shut out of any apps since my package list updated.
