A quick fix for weather app bug caused by evasi0n jailbreak

by Zaib Ali on February 5, 2013


After jailbreaking their iOS device many iOS users especially with iPads complained that the stock Weather app has stopped working or is causing problems. Shortly after the reports @evad3r team members acknowledged the problem and announced that a fix for Weather app is on the way. Evad3rs has announced that not only they will add the fix to the evasi0n tool but also allow those who have already jailbroken their iOS devices to download the fix through Cydia.

But if you don’t want to wait and want to fix the problem right away then hacker @pod2g has shared a solution for fixing the Weather.app bug. The fix is intended for power users only and if you don’t have good knowledge of how iOS scripts work then wait for the official Cydia package, which is being pushed right now.

The problem is with com.apple.mobile.installation.plist fileThe following script forces rebuild of com.apple.mobile.installation.plist :


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 ];


sleep 1


while [ ! -f /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.LaunchServices-045.csstore ];


sleep 1


sleep 10

chmod +x /usr/libexec/mobile_installation_proxy
