    Question location services broken after 4.2.1 jailbreak
    i have a jailbroken wifi-only ipad on 4.2.1 untethered with jailbreak monte (4.2b3). i tried the following to get location services working:

    Method 1:
    with openSSH installed:
    launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.locationd.plist
    launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.locationd.plist

    Method 2:
    uninstall openSSH and reboot.

    Method 3:
    install "Spirit Location Services Fix" from cydia.pushfix.info repo and reboot.

    Method 4:
    add the following key/value to /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.locationd.plist and reboot:
    <key>OnDemand</key>
    <true/>

    none of the above methods fixed the location services issue. my ipad was previously jailbroken with spirit on 3.2 and i used the "Spirit Location Services Fix" at cydia.pushfix.info repo to resolve it, but this no longer works on 4.2.1.

    does anyone else have location services problem with their jailbroken 4.2.1 wifi-only ipad or is it just me?

    i don't understand what you're saying. this thread is for IPAD (without 3G) with broken location services.
