After jailbreaking iOS 6.1 on iPhone with Evasi0n on Mac or Windows, many users have complained about the stock weather app which crashes all the time. Even after restoring the device and jailbreaking it again, users were unable to fix the bug. Perhaps, only couple of users were facing serious crashing issues after opening Weather.app.

The developers behind Evasi0n jailbreak already knows about the issue, and how to fix Weather.app. Per pod2g, the jailbreak process messes up with com.apple.mobile.installation.plist file and they are already working on modifying evasi0n app and on pushing a fix to Cydia for already jailbroken devices.

Those who cannot wait for few hours, here is a script that forces a rebuild of com.apple.mobile.installation.plist  but before executing it, make sure to do a full backup. If you feel comfortable typing on terminal or command prompt, here are the steps:

Step 1: Connect your iOS device to your Mac

Step 2: Open a Terminal window and type the following commands.

#!/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

Step 3: Now execute the following command.

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

Step 4: Now type the following command.

chmod +x /usr/libexec/mobile_installation_proxy
sync
reboot

    I got a different weather app repository in WWW.JAILBREAKHOME.COM because the fix did not work for me.

  • Adam Daieh

    This did not work for me, so I re-install Cydia and get all the tweaks and app I needed using the help of WWW.JAILBREAKHOME.COM

    I am not ungreatful at all whatsoever. I’ve bought dozens of apps on cydia. (ill show you screenshots)
    I just find it kinda sad the developers are putting time into these minor things. When we desperately need updates on things that give iOS more teeth like cycript (for stuff like cydget).
    I love this blog but i wish cydiablog would be a little more objective. :(

    does it work only with mac? and with Windows? When not, does it have an other way to fix it?
    thank you very much

    you have to log into your idevice from terminal on mac using (install openssh on iDevice first)

    “ssh root@(ip address of iDevice)”

    password = alpine

    then do step 2 onwards.

    after reboot of iDevice mine stuck at apple logo (boot screen) so just hold power button and home button into it turns of then turn back on.

    (Tesed to iPhone 5 and iPad Mini)
