10-23-2008, 08:46 PM #1[SOLVED] Safari doesn't keep history on 2.1/2.2. Usual fixes don't workSo, I upgraded to 2.1 from 1.1.4, using QuickPwn. Everything works pretty good (especially after I uninstalled Winterboard, which made my iPhone laggy as WinXP on 80286).
I had to use BossPrefs' "fix user dirs" button to fix mail and SMS apps crashing, but I still have one thing left - Safari will not keep history no matter what.
I checked /mobile/Library/Safari and I can tell that the only two files appearing there while browsing on iPhone are Bookmarks.plist and SuspendState.plist. No History.plist (should it be there?). Safari does keep cookies, by the way.
So, does anyone have any ideas here?

In short: Scrobble (the one with SB icon). Uninstalled it - safari saves history again. This is sad, because Scrobbled (the one that goes into Preferences) doesn't work at all.

hmmmm that's a good one. I had a cookie issue with mine and nothing fixed it without a repwn.

I have the opposite issue. Safari will not erase history ?

I have this same issue, but I stopped caring. If someone finds a way to fix it without restoring that would be great, but otherwise I will wait until the next firmware update to restore.

Well, I'll restore and repwn it tonight. I don't want to put up with these bugs. And this time I also try avoiding winterboard and bossprefs. See what happens.

It's quickpwn, not boss or wb. My issues came from a stock phone after a pwn. Sometimes it misfires when breaking up the factory firmware for the pwn.Screw #Winning, I'm #Juanning

Anyway, I'll post when I repwn, in an hour or so.
Btw, my backspace sometimes get stuck. In safari, for example.
Well, repwned, safari keeps history now and overall iphone seems more responsive. I did install bossprefs.

Okay, so it seems that I found the source of the problem.
I repwned, checked Safari - it worked fine and history was there. Then I installed some apps from Cydia. And guess what? History was gone again!
But it gets better. When I open Safari history was empty. After I go to any website - it would add to history (for the current session) AND the old history would appear! It was just like there was this history that saved before I installed some app and it would reappear in Safari every time history is created. After restart, history would be empty again and reappear exactly as it was before the app.
And I also found the app that caused all this - Safari DL Plugin. Since I removed it history saves just fine. It was standalone package from BigBoss.
Then I installed ********** and it installed SafariDL. This didn't affect me.

The issue is back and now uninstalling Safari DL didn't help. And I don't want to restore/repwn.
