How To: Fix The Evasi0n iOS 6.x Weather Bug

The iOS 6.x Untethered Jailbreak has worked wonders for all of my devices and I actually haven’t experienced the so called weather bug that is affecting a lot of people. By all the reports and help requests we have received however, there is no doubt that it is present.

The weather bug will be fixed in an upcoming update for the Evasi0n iOS 6.x Untether Cydia package, but instead of waiting who knows how long for the update, why not just fix it for yourself! Pod2G has posted on his official blog a script to fix the weather bug. In this tutorial you will learn how to take advantage of this script to once again be able to venture outside.

Fix-Evasi0n-Weather-Bug

Step 1) - The first thing you will need to do is open up Cydia and install OpenSSH and Mobile Terminal to your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.

Step 2) – With both of these Cydia packages installed you will need to type in the following into Terminal and then hit enter:

su root

Step 3) - After entering the command above you will be prompt to enter your password, which will likely be “alpine” for those that haven’t changed it yet.

Step 4) - Next you will need to copy and paste the following into Mobile Terminal and then hit enter.

#!/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

Step 5) – Once you enter the command above make sure you wait for it to process and then your iOS device will reboot itself. Upon turning back on you should notice that the weather bug has now been fixed.

That is it! The weather bug has now been squashed and you should not have anymore troubles. Let us know if this worked for you in the comments section below.

    Might be just me, but I seem to find that occasionally deleting apps makes the springboard crash

  • Ken

    It’s really cool but what happened?
    I love that Pod2G can do insanely smart things like fix a bug through Mobile Terminal within a couple days of hearing about it, but it would be even greater if someone here could provide an explanation of WTF I just entered into my terminal.

    how can we paste in stuff from the clipboard in Mobile Terminal?

  • blah

    Quick way to paste in mobile terminal (MT) is the copy from the script above using safari or chrome and then open MT.

    Press the i on the right side and go to “shortcut menu” and select the last one ^C.

    Paste into the shortcut Action window and then press Done and then back twice.

    Complete step 3 then for step 4 hit the blue up arrow and select ^C from the menu.

    Wait till the input finishes and you see reboot as the last entry press enter and the phone will restart.

    Mine hangs at this point on reboot and weather still does not work.

  • BON

    Easier way to fix using a mac instead of on the phone

    Install openssh
    then in terminal on mac ssh root@youriDevicesipaddress

    then copy and paste:
    #!/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

    After reboot everything should work

    little advise how to copy and paste in terminal
    when you open terminal on right side you have little ”i”
    press there go on shortcut menu press in right corner plus
    i menu label write paste
    i shortcut action paste code mentioned in text above
    and press done

    after that return to terminal menu
    when you typed password after that press arrow up and chose option paste

    Did you install CyDelete? It made my springboard crash everytime I deleted an app (also normal apps). CyDelete it not yet compatible with iOS 6 it seems…

    So just uninstall it and you should be fine again…
