  • Your Weather App Crashing After Jailbreaking With evasi0n? - Fix On the Way!


    After jailbreaking with the new iOS 6 untethered jailbreak tool evasi0n, many, but not all, are reporting that the Weather application in iOS is crashing upon launch. It has happened on many of our own devices too. Miraculously, many people are also reporting that the issue doesn't affect them.

    For those of you wondering, the evad3rs have been working on a fix for the issue since yesterday. iOS hacker pod2g Tweeted this morning that the problem has been identified, and that an update for the evasi0n jailbreak tool and the evasi0n jailbreak package in Cydia would be updated to resolve it:



    If you just canít wait for the fix because you love the iOS Weather application too much, pod2g says via his blog that power-users can use this script to fix the problem right now. The script will force the rebuild of com.apple.mobile.installation.plist.

    If youíre waiting on the easier fix either from the evasi0n jailbreak tool or the evasi0n jailbreak Cydia package, rather than using the script mentioned above, you can expect the fix anywhere between one to a couple of days.

    iOS hacker and developer Ryan Petrich also addressed a problem with the iOS 6.1 untethered jailbreak by releasing a new free jailbreak tweak into his beta repository that would clean up the temporary files generated after every respring and take up a ton of space.

      Thanks to the two posters from the front who offer their steps on getting the script to run. I used winscp and putty to get my app working.

      Copy and paste the script.
      Named it 'weatherfix.sh'
      Used winscp to navigate to '/private/var/root/'
      paste the file in there.
      Run putty and cd to '/private/var/root/'
      type 'sh weatherfix.sh'

      that is it. what for a reboot and test the app.

      this is how i did it and work just fine

      If you have MobileTerminal installed, you can actually run the script straight from your device itself. Otherwise you can tunnel into your device in iFunBox, or log in through SSH.

      Step 1: Copy the following script from your device’s browser:

      #!/bin/bash
      chmod -x /usr/libexec/mobile_installation_proxy
      killall -9 mobile_installation_proxy
      rm /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installation.plist /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.LaunchServices-045.csstore
      launchctl stop com.apple.mobile.installd
      launchctl start com.apple.mobile.installd

      while [ ! -f /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installation.plist ];
      do
      sleep 1
      done
      while [ ! -f /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.LaunchServices-045.csstore ];
      do
      sleep 1
      done

      sleep 10

      chmod +x /usr/libexec/mobile_installation_proxy
      sync
      reboot;

      Step 2: You can’t paste directly into MobileTerminal, so we’ll have to work around this first. Open MobileTerminal, press the information button, and enter the shortcut menu. You will be able to paste the script into a new shortcut. Make sure the script is entered correctly, as the iPhone’s copy tool may miss the beginning or the end of the script.



      Step 3: Open MobileTerminal and log in as root. The command is ‘login root’ and the default password is ‘alpine’.



      Step 4: Open the shortcut menu on the left hand side of the screen and select the new shortcut you created.



      Step 5: Set the device aside and let the script do its work. Once the command is finished, it should reboot automatically.
