How To Fix The Weather App On Your Jailbroken iOS Device

So you decided to jailbreak your iOS device, and now the baked-in weather app is borked, right? Yeah, sometimes these things don't always work out that smoothly, but it could have been a lot worse. Here's how to fix the problem now.

  • BACKUP YOUR DEVICE
  • Launch Cydia and install Mobile Terminal and Open SSH
  • Launch Mobile Terminal and type the following followed by a return: su root
  • Now type in the default password (if you haven't changed it): alpine
  • Copy and paste the following script into Mobile Terminal:
  • #!/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
  • Your device should reboot at this point and all will supposedly be well.
