    Default Jailbroken iPhone 5 - Upgrading to 6.1.2 - Now have numerous issues. Help Please.
    I have an AT&T iPhone 5.. I was running 6.1.1 when I did the evasi0n jailbreak.. Everything went great.. Installed some Cydia apps and life was good..

    Then 6.1.2 came out.. I connect to my PC and iTunes and update.. That's when it got fubared and I had to restore from backup and re-jailbreak.. That all seemed to work fine too.. Except now, some Cydia apps will not work..

    A few examples:

    NoNewsIsGoodNews is installed but my Newstand icon is still there.. I've uninstalled and reinstalled and that didn't help.. Another example.. SMS Timestamps.. Installed but not working.. Uninstall / reinstall does not fix.. I've tried running icleaner and then uninstalling / reinstalling apps and that didn't help..

    I can restore to factory and rejailbreak but really don't' want to lose all my sms history etc..

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks

    Sounds like you might need to do a true DFU restore then setup as new. Do not restore from a backup. Load it clean.
    Widget-Weather App Now Available! Also with MyLocation Support!
    Check out the thread here - Widget-Weather
    To install the Widget-Weather app, just go to Cydia and install. This will also remove MyLocation, as it is built in!
    Want to protect your JailBreak! Add this repo http://cydia.myrepospace.com/iLEXiNFO/ & Install "iLEX R.A.T."
    It will allow you to bring your phone back to a fresh jailbroken state!

    I've done that and it was fine, however, I realized I lose all my SMS history, call history, game saves, etc.. Is there anyway to get that stuff backed up?

    Shouldn't ever do regular update on JB phone...always DFU mode restore...

    U can then restore from a backup if u want..this will get ur SMS n App Store game data back....I never do this cuz it's not important to me, n u get less problems setting up as new and not from backup...but that's me...
