    I am having this problem as well, I am unable to install summerboard so I decided to just do a 1.1.2 restore, downgrade and activate 1.0.2 with independence, now I have a cleanly installed iPhone and I'll wait for the official sdk apps rather, before I upgrade again.

    Ste, the Installer app maintainer says this:

    Recently, I had to move the serving of my repository’s XML file from the Dreamhost server that was serving it, to a free global caching system (http://coralcdn.org), as my hosting provider was threatening to disable the site due to the high number of connections per second. That move, even though the caching system isn’t perfect, saved the site and Dreamhost left the site alone.

    Today, they have throttled a different account of mine - the one that serves 50% of all the zip files. They said that there were too many connections and it was driving up server load. Consequently, the vast majority of all downloads from that server are failing now, and there’s nothing I can do about it. There are two other server, that two other folks graciously let me use, that are currently each serving about 25% of the downloads. They cannot handle more traffic.

    I have complained to Dreamhost, pointing out that they have essentially destroyed my site. I also have pointed out to them that they are not providing me the service that my account is supposed to have - namely, 10TB of data transfer a month. I’m not even close to that and they have cut me off and rather ruined things.

    I’m not expecting them to change their minds, however.

    Sigh.

    I’ll try to figure *something* out …

    Hope someone can help him and us with bandwidth. Go Ste!!!

    As stupid as i sounds it seems that one things always fixes the problem for me.

    I open up iNdependence let it give the error. Press ok. Wait for 2 more minutes. Quit it.

    That's it!

    I have no idea how, but it works.
