  • 'RespringCacheFix' Cleans Junk Files Created By Resprings in iOS 6.1


    Be careful respringing that iOS 6.1 jailbroken device too many times in a row. According to iOS hacker and developer Ryan Petrich, every time you respring that iOS 6.1 device, a lot of temporary files are created that waste a ton of space. Reboots won’t do the same thing, but resprings are easier and more convenient than reboots, so many of us do that more often than reboot.

    If you want to keep respringing your iOS 6.1 device without having to worry about the build up of these irritating temporary files, Ryan has created a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed RespringCacheFix that will automatically get rid of these junk files for you after each respring on iOS 6.1.

    Ryan warns that the package is still in beta and hasn’t had any significant testing, however we’ve been using it all day on more than one iOS 6.1 jailbroken device (iPhone 5 included) and nothing abnormal has happened.

    If you want to add RespringCacheFix to your jailbroken iOS 6.1 device, add Ryan Petrich’s beta repository by following the steps below:

    • tap on the Manage tab
    • tap on the Sources button
    • tap on the Edit button
    • tap on the Add button
    • enter the following URL and then tap Add Source:

    PHP Code:
    http://rpetri.ch/repo/ 
    Name: RespringCacheFix
    Price: FREE
    Version: 0.1
    Requirements: iOS 6.1
    Repo: Ryan Petrich's Beta Repository
    Developer: Ryan Petrich

      have u checked this?
      I have a 4s 16GB and also had the problem where I would get stuck on the boot screen. A simple fix without restoring was to hard reboot the device (hold home and power button down together until it reboots). Now its working fine.

      Did you follow the button clicks you must do while running the jb? If not it will close and not finish the jb correctly. Do it again and read all prompts.

      When I jailbroke my iPhone for the first time weather app crashes, but when I DFU+clean restored it to iOS 6.1, weather app doesn't crash anymore, but my iMessage and Facetime doesn't activate now.

      I tested my weather app after jailbreaking yesterday and it worked fine...but even if it didn't I wouldn't care. I use The Weather Channel and stick the native weather app deep in a folder somewhere never to be seen again.

      It may have stopped working since I tested it yesterday.

      Does this RespringCacheFix run in the background?

      Hi Guys

      My iPhone 5 weather is working
      How ever I'm not sure if it is installed
      Over the stock weather app

      My iPad 4 did work only once
      The jail brake is not as good as the phone jail brake

      As the iPad jail brake stopped half way in

      Kind regards jack

      Why is everyone still talking about the god damn weather app? Is it really that big of a deal? Download weather bug or something, stop being so ungrateful for the good work this team did. Plus, this thread is about the addon 'RespringCacheFix'. I haven't tried it yet, but I downloaded it, thanks!

      Even though it is minimalistic , it is important to fix this bug. Mainly because it means there is a mismatch somewhere in the code. I am sure that the developers are not happy to know that the bug exists , especially considering all the hard work that was put into it . It was highly unlikely for a "perfect" jailbreak release to be seen , this I understand as I've seen that pattern over the years, still it is important to report the bugs.

      My weather app doesn't work and I've expressed it in the forums , still I am grateful that the jailbreak in general is successful and it did not stop me from donating .

      I will agree with you that this is off topic here, though. I just needed to point this out .

      Did you bother to read what he was asking? No, you didn't. He asked how do you run the respringcachefix thing after you install it? I want to know as well. I installed it, but I am not immediately seeing how. Maybe it's in settings.

      Next time, read what the person is asking before you spout off useless bull. thanks.
