How to fix the weather app crashing issue on iPhone after the Evasi0n Jailbreak procedure:
We have already told you that iPhone, iPad 4 and iPad mini can be easily Jailbroken using the Evasi0n tool. The new tool has a drawback as well, some users are reporting weather app crashing after jailbreaking the device. We have searched all over for the solution and found a small guide to solve the issue.
Step 1: Launch Cydia, now go to Search section and install openSSH package. Once OpenSSH is installed, exit Cydia. Open the terminal on Mac or command prompt [windows]. You will have to locate the affected device IP address by going to settings>>Wi-Fi and then selecting connecting network [on the phone]. This will give you a detailed preview of the connection details.
Step 2: On the terminal/ command prompt type following command.
ssh [email protected](IP address)
In the place of the IP address above just replace it with the IP address we found on the phone. You will need to provide private authentication keys to go ahead and establish the permission. Type Yes and the admin password of alpine. You have now successfully set up an SSH access to the iPhone.
Step 3: Copy paste the following script to the terminal or Command prompt window. This is to repair some app setting file through the root access.
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 4: Above script will reboot the device. The weather app is repaired now, go ahead and use it. Cydia will be launching a one push fix for this very soon. But people who do not like waiting should go ahead with the procedure.
