HOW TO: Fix Weather.app Not Loading After Jailbreaking With Evasi0n

weather-icon

Evad3rs has figured out that that the jailbreak process messes up with com.apple.mobile.installation.plist. A fix is currently in the works and will be pushed to Cydia soon. But if you can’t wait for a Cydia drop, jump over the break to learn how to do it manually.

NOTE: You can use MobileTerminal ( Cydia ), iSSH ( app store ) or Terminal.app on the Mac

NOTE: backup your device before doing this

1. Load Cydia and install OpenSSH and MobileTerminal

2. Load MobileTerminal and type:

  • su root ( return )
  • type in your password: alpine ( Once OpenSSH is installed it is highly recommanded to change the default password. To learn how to do that, check out this tutorial )

3. Now copy and paste the below script in MobileTerminal

#!/bin/bash
chmod -x /usr/libexec/mobile_installation_proxy
killall -9 mobile_installation_proxy
rm /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installation.plist /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.LaunchServices-045.csstore
launchctl stop com.apple.mobile.installd
launchctl start com.apple.mobile.installd

while [ ! -f /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installation.plist ];
do
sleep 1
done
while [ ! -f /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.LaunchServices-045.csstore ];
do
sleep 1
done

sleep 10

chmod +x /usr/libexec/mobile_installation_proxy
sync
reboot

4. Wait for your device to reboot.

5. Enjoy

If you want to use Terminal.app on your Mac, load Terminal and type

  • ssh@your-device’s-IP-address
  • alpine
  • copy-paste script

terminal-mac-FSMdotCOM
