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.
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:
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.
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 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.
