By Peter Ha on at

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. Now, a fix is being worked on but in case you haven't downloaded one of a bajillion other weather apps, here's how to fix the problem now:

1. BACKUP YOUR DEVICE

2. Launch Cydia and install Mobile Terminal and Open SSH

3. Launch Mobile Terminal and type the following followed by a return: su root

4. Now type in the default password, if you haven't changed it: alpine

5. 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
