  • 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.

      So anyone have a step by step guide on the script way of fixing it?


      I tried both copying and pasting the entire code into the ssh terminal, and pasting the code into a fixweather.sh file and running it via terminal sh fixweather.sh , neither produced results....

      Ran the script and it took care of the issue for me.. way to go pod2g!

      Not sure if it's related but my iPhone also booted properly for the first time .. no need to do a hard reset! could just be a fluke though.

      The way I did it?

      1. Install OpenSSH
      2. Download and install WinSCP ( on a pc )
      3. I connected and changed into / folder
      4. I created a new file called fix.sh and pasted the script in
      5. I connected to the iphone using putty and then executed it by typing sh /fix.sh

      May not be the absolute newb guide.. but if you're not familiar with ssh or don't feel comfortable doing it, you might want to wait anyway.. I'm a linux admin =)

      I figured they'd be coming out with an evasion update...that's usually how it goes. There's almost always some kind of bug/bugs that need to be fixed with a new JB. Glad I waited

      I don't know if "miraculously" was quite the right word. Oddly, strangely, curiously....not "miraculously". O_o

      By the way.. the script doesn't produce any output but it will reboot your device when it's done.. that's really the only way you know it's done it's thing.

      I'm pretty familiar..... I get this:

      KromiX:~ root# sh /fix.sh
      chmod: cannot access `/usr/libexec/mobile_installation_proxy\r': No such file or directory
      No matching processes were found
      rm: cannot remove `\r': No such file or directory
      launchctl stop error: No such process
      launchctl start error: No such process
      : command not found
      /fix.sh: line 22: syntax error: unexpected end of file


      I have no idea why it's adding a \r at the end of it it seems like thats causing the problem.... I copy and pasted directly from his blog and confirmed nothing was added or deleted.

      That must be the reason that the WeatherIcon app puts the phone in Safe Mode...?

      people are reporting that the jailbreak sometimes doesnt work and you need to hard reset to turn on the phone - i hope they release a proper version of the JB soon

      i prefer the stock app as you can access it from the notification center. i actually tried weather channel and weather plus one, but you cant access those 2 from the notification center.

      i can wait for the updated evasion fix. cant access any repos anyways.
