Saurik Insert a Disclaimer in Cydia.

For several hours the Amazon servers are experiencing some major problems. Just Cydia is based on them, the store of Saurik that allows you to download content that is not approved in the App Store users have a jailbroken iDevice. Given the prolonged downtime, which we know is causing several problems especially in the use of certain sections of Cydia and recording of certain programs, Saurik decided to include a small disclaimer on the home of the program to inform all users about the situation just described.

In the long message reads as follows:
Amazon EC2 servers, the servers that host internal Cydia are facing serious problems for about 45 hours. This dowtime effect on purchases of goods for a fee, on the Theme Center, and on the Manage Account section of Cydia.
I (Saurik) I'm resting at intervals of an hour and a half since I started this downtime, in order to try to get in touch with the "Premium Support" Amazon to communicate the problem.
In the last hours there was a very high traffic that did not allow me to edit this page above to enter the message you are reading.
Unfortunately, the state of the Amazon server is not yet clear, and information received are quite confused, even if vaguely optimistic. However I can not make decisions and then do much in this direction.
At the moment, the latest news from Amazon (received one and a half ago), confirm that the technicians are working to restore the full functioning of the server, so all you need to be recovered. The Premium Support has asked the engineers to give precedence to Cydia and the recovery of its infrastructure.
In the previous two hours, Amazon has recovered two important volumes of Cydia, but the same can not yet be said for the volume that allows you to reset the entire index of packages.
(For those interested, this downtime is the same as other sites like Reddit is interesting and Foursquare).
Saurik will definitely come back to update users when there will be news, especially when the situation will be totally restored.
