After 86 hours of downtime, Jay Freeman (saurik) who is the man behind Cydia has confirmed that the jailbreak app is finally back online after an issue with Amazon’s EC2 cloud computing service (Reddit had this same issue with Amazon Cloud). Saurik posted a message via to Twitter last night shown below:
This Cydia downtime limited Cydia’s functionality for users, making it nearly impossible to purchase packages, using the ThemeCenter, and managing Cydia accounts. Some users had a little success with accessing these services more recently, but the intermittent periods of downtime as Amazon’s EC2 service slowly came back online appear to be over!
