The Evasi0n Untethered iOS 6.1 Jailbreak seemed to work flawlessly on all devices, other than the iPhone that is, which suffered from a Weather app bug. The Weather app bug, caused by the Evasi0n Untethered iOS 6.1 Jailbreak, crashed the Weather app whenever it was opened.
While most users didn’t care, since there are plenty of third party weather apps out there, some were surprisingly outraged by the bug. Just your typical internet drama. Pod2g tweeted out a quick fix for “power users” before the planned fix is released via Cydia package update. The fix confused some, including ourselves, until we figured it out, so here’s a guide along with a video on how to fix the Weather app bug after the jump!
UPDATE: The evad3rs team have put out an update in Cydia that will quickly fix the long boot and Weather app bug.
Step 1: Download OpenSSH
First, you’re going to need to download the OpenSSH package in Cydia. This enables your device to be accessed via SSH on your Mac OS X or Windows PC. Search for the package and install.
Step 2: Find you IP Address on your iPhone
You will now need to find your IP Address on your iPhone, which is located in the Settings app. Make sure your iPhone is connected to the same WiFi as your computer, and head into WiFi settings. In the WiFi settings, you will see your WiFi name, tap on the Blue Arrow next to it. Here you will find your IP Address, copy it down on your computer.
Step 3: Terminal Time!
Step 4: Password Time!
If there is password on your computer, Terminal might ask you to enter it, do it. Afterwards, Terminal should ask you for your iPhone root password, which is alpine by default. If you have changed the SSH password on your iPhone (most likely not), enter the password you have set.
Step 5: Copy Pod2g’s Weather Fix Code
Pod2g tweeted out a code that will automatically fix the Weather app bug with the Evasi0n Untethered iOS 6.1 Jailbreak. This code can be found below, copy the whole thing, and press Return/Enter in Terminal / Command Prompt.
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 ];
while [ ! -f /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.LaunchServices-045.csstore ];
chmod +x /usr/libexec/mobile_installation_proxy
Step 6: You’re Done!
Now your iPhone should automatically reboot itself and the Weather app bug should be fixed. Check to see that everything is okay by attempting to open the Weather app. If it opens, you have done the process correctly and everything should work.
