BigBoss down

If you’ve recently tried to install a tweak hosted on the BigBoss repo, then you’ve probably encountered issues doing so. It’s not something wrong with your phone, or with your Internet connection. The BigBoss repo is currently down, and have been for at least 45 minutes.

BigBoss repo down

When you try to refresh the BigBoss repo it just hangs. If you try to install a tweak from the repo, you’re met with a POSIX: Network is unreachable error.

Currently, there’s no word on when the repo will be back up. I’ve reached out to BigBoss repo manager, @0ptimo, on Twitter, and will update this post once I hear something.

Are you seeing the same problem? If so, for how long?

Thanks to ElectroclassicM for the heads up.

Update: The official BigBoss Twitter account has chimed in about the outage:

Update: the BigBoss repo now appears to be working again:

    The bigboss repo has been down for almost 2 hours
    At least most of the repos are still working

  • Lucus Bendzsa

    I am looking at RipBigBoss or some other North Koreans.

  • kahlil velayo

  • (JailbreakQA) King Shoot

    Looks like we’ll have to hold off installing tweaks until it’s fixed. I hope it will, because most of them ARE on BigBoss. Good luck to 0ptimo.

    I have had encountered a problem that forced me to restore my iPad and to gailbreak it again, I stuck many hours for the cydia repo errors, but figure it out by chance from my second iPad, I wish it come back soon to the service

  • Jakesploder

    I was able to ping the server (and get a response) but still can’t get anything from the repo. Thats too bad cuz i just got a new 5S and i jailbroke immediately and now i can’t get my tweaks XD
