How to get your Weather back after the evasi0n jailbreak

By : Mario Dabek posted on February 5, 2013

A lot of people are having a problem after jailbreaking with their Weather App not working.

The evad3rs are aware of the issue and working on the fix.

Meanwhile, I’ll give you some instructions on how you can fix this yourself. I’m going to assume you know how to SSH into your device and run a few basic commands.

If you don’t know what any of this means, you probably shouldn’t be attempting this, and wait for a proper fix from the evad3rs.

So ….

Ok I’ve made a quick how to fix your weather app.

Step 1. make sure you have some SSH software installed on your PC ( I’m using WINSCP in Windows )

Step 2. make sure you install OPENSSH from Cydia on your device, its a free download

Step 3. SSH into your device, make sure your iPhone is connected to Wifi

Step 4. Once connected, type in the following command cat > and press enter

Step 5. Paste the code below, then press CTRL + Z

chmod -x /usr/libexec/mobile_installation_proxy
killall -9 mobile_installation_proxy
rm /var/mobile/Library/Caches/ /var/mobile/Library/Caches/
launchctl stop
launchctl start

while [ ! -f /var/mobile/Library/Caches/ ];
sleep 1
while [ ! -f /var/mobile/Library/Caches/ ];
sleep 1

sleep 10

chmod +x /usr/libexec/mobile_installation_proxy

Step 6. Now you have your script ready, so lets run it.

Step 7. type these commands in order

  • sh ( let the script finish )
  • sync
  • reboot

Note :

  • default user name and password for any iOS device is user : ‘root’ & password : ‘alpine’
  • when your device locks and screen turns off, your wifi disconnects and you wont be able to SSH into the device

Now you have your weather App back :)
