08-20-2010, 12:20 PM #62Editing file fixed location services
My location services didn't work with OpenSSH installed. I could uninstall OpenSSH and reboot and location services would work again.
Here is my setup.
iPad 16 GB WiFi only
Originally 3.2 jailbroken with Spirit
Upgraded to 3.2.1 (which removed jailbreak)
Jailbroke with jailbreakme.com
Here is the process I did to restore location services after installing OpenSSH.
Used iFile to edit
Found the field that says, <key>OnDemand</
Changed the next line from <false/> to <true/> and saved the file.
Verified that location services were working again.Devices: iPhone 3GS iOS 5.0.1 (old boot ROM), iPad 2 64GB/3G/4.10.01 iOS 4.3.3, Android and WM phones as well
10-21-2010, 03:05 AM #63no <OnDemand> tag
I got an iPhone4 and have jailbroken by GreenPo1son
and I've installed OpenSSH.
thus, I got a same problem that I can't locate via wifi
then I found this thread.
I got com.apple.locationd.plist in my iphone4, too
but there're no <OnDemand> tag,
so i couldn't convert <false> to <true>
but I can temporarily fix the issue by unload and load it.
how should I do ?
add a new tag doesn't work!!!

Here is what I found.
Check in WIFI networks if you see more networks, other than yours. If you see only your wifi then location won't work. If your iPad can see more then one network then the location works. This makes sense because location is determined by triangulating wifi signals.
Hope this works for you.
Here is my setup:
iPad WIFI 32Gb
modified the .plist file from false to true (I don't know if it makes any difference)

the problem is
01-06-2011, 06:50 AM #66Still no solution for 4.2.1 iPad?
It seems the only solution is to remove OpenSSH and reboot. I tried all the other options:
- iPad Location Fix (Cydia) doesn't work in 4.2.1
- Stopping and restarting the locationd deamon, as suggested here, doesn't work for me either
- Adding the settingCode:
- Turning off the SSH service using SBSettings doesn't help.
- Even turning off SSH altogether (with a command in Terminal) doesn't help.
It seems the mere presence of OpenSSH has this effect. Has anyone been really successful, on a jailbroken iPad on 4.2.1 with OpenSSH installed, in getting a location?

Jailbroken wifi iPad location service fix.
If you have a jailbroken device that can't locate your location, add source "http://cydia.pushfix.info" and install Spirit Location service fix.

Since it is practically equal to those solutions, you will not be surprised that it didn't work on my iPad.
