How to Fix the Weather App Crash After your Evasi0n Jailbreak

Pod2g has posted detailed instructions on how to fix the crashing Weather app issue caused by the latest evasi0n iOS 6.1 jailbreak, which causes com.apple.mobile.installation.plist to malfunction. Below are instructions on how to fix this yourself, if you’re an advanced user. Pod2g recommends making a backup before attempting this:

If you are a power-user, and want to fix the situation already, here is a script that forces a rebuild of com.apple.mobile.installation.plist :

#!/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

If you’re saying “that’s all Greek to me” right about now, don’t worry. A fix for the weather app will soon make its way into Cydia.

Yesterday we posted a fix for the time zone issue, along with other recent bugs users have encountered with the evasi0n iOS 6.1 jailbreak, which has been downloaded over 1.7 million times.
