3 Ireland and the Cydia block
Yesterday, it emerged through Twitter (via @stroughtonsmith on my own feed, and others) that Cydia was being blocked from being accessed on 3 Ireland and 3 UK’s network.
Why? Well, I asked. And given that you can only fit 140 characters on Twitter, here’s the full response from 3 Ireland.
“3 was not aware that Cydia was being blocked and the fact that it is being blocked is an error. It is due to the 3rd party internet filtering system we use called Bluecoat. Bluecoat is used to block sites of an adult nature.
“We are now working on getting the Cydia servers unblocked and this should be done as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience caused to our customers.”
Anything else while we’re at it?
UPDATE: Cydia should be unblocked now, Redsn0w has also been flagged.
