    That was quick! I just ran ziphone and now my yahoo mail and youtube seems to operate! Guess the key to using Ziphone is use the third button down for everything on iphone to operate.

    I tried all the stuff listed in this thread, and nothing worked. then I found the link above. It's the only thing that's worked for me whatsoever. So if you're in the same situation, read it.

    And ephonee, if that's what's happening, then you may have already installed those packages. That or you need to refresh your sources.
    Used his "guide" am very capable of folowing directions, but for some reason now, suspect the reset all settings step, gave me a nice 8G iTouch. Now gotta do 2.5 hours worth of restoring, breaking and restoring apps.. Thanks dude!!!:

    OOPPPSSSS I DUNNO WHAT HAPPPENED, CONNECT TO ITUNES AND ALL IS GOOD. SO PLEASE ACCEPT MY HUMBLE APOLOGIZES AND EXCUSE ME SO I CAN BE FLOGGED!!!

    I've had the same problem,youtube & yahoo mail not working since I upgraded to 1.1.4, no matter what jailbreak/unlocking method used on my AT&T phone.
    So yesterday I played the whole afternoon with winpwn hoping to have a diffrent result this time....No,same thing...after installing custom build iswp file & unlock with boot neuter youtube & yahoo mail not working.
    Then I found YouTube activator version 2 from BigBoss,intalled it via installer...YouTube & Yahoo Mail work !!!

    I've tried version 1 a couple of weeks ago,did not work for me.

    Restored it. downloaded ZiPhone. Just did the jailbreak, and all is right with the world!!!! Thank you for that tip. Seems the issue was with iLiberty's process since none of the patches worked with it.


    THANKS!!!!!!

    Major warning re that SYNCFIX thing-- it is actually an .sh file that is placed at / and that runs a script which, for lack of a better way to put it, is incredibly risky at best! In my case the script created a state where my pod wouldn't stop refreshing the SB app. I could however ftp/ssh into it and found that it had set up a series of recursive pointer references that really fracked up my pod.

    The contents of that .sh file is below. As you can see it does some pretty major stuff. CAVEAT EMPTOR-- be prepared to have it not work for you. Only by deleting the recursive symlinks did I get the pod to stop refreshing but due to the many rm commands on all those app folders, I lost all my prefs for them.

    I do NOT recommend running syncfix on *any* pod at this point.

    File contents:

    #!/bin/sh

    rm -rf /var/root/Library/AddressBook
    rm -rf /var/root/Library/Safari
    rm -rf /var/root/Library/Calendar
    rm -rf /var/root/Library/Preferences
    rm -rf /var/root/Library/Mail
    mv /var/mobile/Library/AddressBook /var/root/Library
    mv /var/mobile/Library/Safari /var/root/Library
    mv /var/mobile/Library/Calendar /var/root/Library
    mv /var/mobile/Library/Preferences /var/root/Library
    mv /var/mobile/Library/Mail /var/root/Library
    mkdir /var/root/Library/AddressBook
    mkdir /var/root/Library/Safari
    mkdir /var/root/Library/Calendar
    mkdir /var/root/Library/Preferences
    mkdir /var/root/Library/Mail
    chown -R mobile:mobile /var/root/Library/AddressBook
    chown -R mobile:mobile /var/root/Library/Safari
    chown -R mobile:mobile /var/root/Library/Calendar
    chown -R mobile:mobile /var/root/Library/Preferences
    chown -R mobile:mobile /var/root/Library/Mail
    ln -s /var/root/Library/AddressBook /var/mobile/Library/AddressBook
    ln -s /var/root/Library/Safari /var/mobile/Library/Safari
    ln -s /var/root/Library/Calendar /var/mobile/Library/Calendar
    ln -s /var/root/Library/Preferences /var/mobile/Library/Preferences
    ln -s /var/root/Library/Mail /var/mobile/Library/Mail

    echo "Please sync with iTunes. Then reboot your iPhone."

    Smile Finally, have it all fixed. This is what happened
    Alleluia, finally. The YT app and Mail are now working again.

    Here's what happened:

    I followed the directions on this tutorial:
    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkqZsXWdDQk"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkqZsXWdDQk[/ame]
    even though I hadn't tried using the Customize package to do things
    like change the wording on the pod, etc. So after running the 1.1.4
    compatibility patch, I installed the "Customize" package and then as
    the vid said to do, uninstalled it. The next direction he gave
    however I couldn't follow since the source he mentioned (http://
    touchrepo.com/repo.xml) to add customize 1.1.3 and alas, that source
    was off-line. I was screwed, or so I thought. So I uninstalled the
    "Customize" package and figured that was that. "Well, I tried," I
    thought.

    Next day I was at work and wanted to copy some converted vids over to
    my pod [if you must know, they were Monty Python clips from Youtube.
    No, they were not porno. ]. I fired up iTunes and plugged in my
    pod. The pod firmware version now read "1.1.3". That, I did not
    expect. Well, I copied over the .mp4 files and rebooted the pod,
    then for kicks and giggles tried to see if Youtube worked. It did. I
    couldn't believe it. To press my luck I checked the Mail app and yes,
    that now worked.

    I waited til today to make sure it was all real and wasn't going to
    revert for some reason. No, it still works.

    So I have a jailbroken pod now with the native apps all working and
    the standard upgrades (SummerBoard, etc.) operating just fine. This
    is the idea backup point.

    So I did it. That's for the next discussion since it is its own
    topic.

    Curious what the actual YouTube problem is exactly?

    When I go to activate YouTube over EDGE, it launches the application. However, when it starts connecting to the EDGE network, it thinks for a bit and then it just crashes. The app shuts down and I'm back on the home screen of my iPhone. (1.1.4 by the way).

    Any ideas?? Is this a common problem that this fix can help?

  17. #56
    @marc8773: See my post just above at http://www.modmyi.com/forums/jailbre...tml#post950681

    Try that. 1.1.4 breaks YouTube for reasons not known to me. Maybe someone at Apple would know but so far I don't think they have gone public with it.

    The mission though is to get it working again. If we find out why it was broken, all the better. But in the mean time, the ship is filling up with water. Save the ship first, then do the investigation as to how a hole the size of Montana got blown into the side of it.

    Thanks, worked OK for me. Will only let folks know that after step 5, I got a the restore icon. However I was still able to re-establish connection via WinSCP. So then I finished the procedure despite thinking that the previos steps had re-bricked my pod. But then again not until I started iTunes and connected the pod to the PC did the restore icon go away and all was hunky-dory again. And yes, now YT works.

    BTW, I am still on 1.1.3. And, despite apparently what people are saying here and elsewhere, this YT problem seems not only limited to 1.1.4!
