    Hello.

    I JB my iPad (1st gen) yesterday and I keep receiving the following error message:

    POSIX: Connection refused

    when I try to download certain apps.

    Any help would be great

    Thank you.

    Possible causes:
    -server of one of your sources is down
    -Cydia glitch

    You could restart your iPad and see if that is of any help (press&hold the power button, then slide to switch off)

    This is fairly standard around the time of a new jailbreak release guys. The first 72 hours after any release really hammer the various repo servers, and some of them don't have enough resources to cope. BigBoss has been down quite a lot today.
    Best advice is to give them a try every hour or two. Eventually you will get through...

    Hope that helps...
