Cydia are probleme de functionalitate foarte mari

V-am spus acum cateva zile ca serverele Cydia sunt afectate de unele probleme pe care Amazon le are in centrele de date din SUA. Atunci se preconiza ca problema se va rezolva rapid avand in vedere ca e vorba despre Amazon, o firma de hosting foarte mare care nu a mai avut asemenea probleme. In realitate problama fost foarte grava deoarece site-ul precum Reddit, foursquare, quora, etc, au fost picate cateva ore bune. Problema a afectat mii de site-uri insa si serverele Cydia iar astazi saurik a publicat mesajul din imagine pe prima pagina a Cydia.

Pe langa problemele cu afisarea SHSH-urilor pe prima pagina din Cydia, exista probleme cu achizitionarea packetelor disponibile in aplicatie. Nimeni nu poate cumpara absolut nimic din Cydia din cauza problemelor serverelor Amazon si nimeni nu stie cand se va rezolva problema. Din pacate saurik nu are ce face decat sa astepte ca, cei de la Amazon sa isi rezolve problemele. Nu am incercat sa fac restore sa vad daca pot lua SHSH de pe serverele Cydia insa sunt mai mult ca sigur ca nu se poate asa ceva deci nu incercati sa faceti restore.

Cand se vor rezolva lucrurile va voi anunta.

Amazon EC2, which hosts Cydia’s internal website, has been having extreme issues for – 40 hours. This outage affects the ability to purchase paid products, the Theme Center, and Manage Account. I (saurik) have been sleeping in hour-and-a-half shifts since this outage began in order to keep a dialog open with Amazon „Premium Support” regarding this issue. Recently, enough access was recovered in order for me to modify the home page to add this message.

Unfortunately, Amazon’s status and ETAs have been confusingly vague and highly optimistic throughout the experience, causing me to be unable to make good decisions about disaster recovery choices. At this time, the latest news from Amazon AWS (as of two hours ago) was „that this will take 3-4 hours until full access is restored.” Meanwhile, Premium Support has asked engineering to prioritize recovering Cydia’s infrastructure. (For those interested in this sort of thing: this is the same Amazon EC2 outage that has been affecting other sites like reddit and foursquare.)
