Users complain of issues with stock Weather app after jailbreaking

Evasi0n, the long-awaited untethered iOS 6 jailbreak was released to the public this morning. And aside from some overloaded web servers and Cydia repos, it’s been a fairly smooth ride for most folks.

But there does seem to be one bug in the utility that is causing problems for [at least some] iPhone users. We’re seeing a lot of folks complain that their stock Weather app crashes after jailbreaking…

Shortly after evasi0n was released this morning, we started getting reports from readers that the Weather app no longer worked on their iPhones. So I checked mine out, and sure enough, it wouldn’t even open.

And a quick search for the term ‘jailbreak weather’ on Twitter confirms that this is more than an isolated incident. It would appear that quite a few people are experiencing Weather app issues after jailbreaking.

We’ve reported the problem to the evad3rs, and they say they’re looking into it. We assume that if this really is a bug, we’ll see some sort of an update or Cydia patch—after these guys get some much-needed rest.

But for now, the only recommendation for a fix we can make is to try restoring and re-jailbreaking. And if that doesn’t work, look at the bright side: it’ll be sunny out and a cool 73 degrees for the next few days.

Have you been experiencing problems with your Weather app since jailbreaking?

Update: pod2g gives us a quick update:

    Jailbreak installed no problem. Cydia is understandably being pounded right now. Can’t download anything. Manage account screen is blank too.

    are you sure you have to have ios 6.1 updated through itunes and not air?

    • Jose Gonzalez

      To be on the safe side yes you should update through iTunes.

      • Chris

        how do i do that at this point?

      • Jose Gonzalez

        Just connect your device to iTunes, got to your devices tab on iTunes then it should show to options, “Update” and “Restore”. Choose update and it should start the process. Make sure you back up your device before starting the process.

    Anyone with iPhone 4s have tried to turn off your device and the device is not booting after jailbreaking with evasi0n?

    • http://twitter.com/iremzan Mohamed Rimzan

      hold home button and power button , it will restart faster

      • http://twitter.com/hafizihazran Hafizi Hazran

        It seem rebooting forever on apple logo. Should i restore my device?

  • Jose Gonzalez

    This is pretty strange, Cydia recognizes my iPad mini (Wifi) as an iPad 2 (Wifi). Is anyone else experiencing the same thing? Just in case you don’t know where it states your device, just go to the cydia tab and scroll all the way to the bottom and it shows information about the device.

    • http://twitter.com/Cesuva Matthew

      They have the same screen resolution. That might be the problem.

      • Jose Gonzalez

        That’s what I was thinking, but who knows maybe Cydia just tweaked.

      I did restore and Jb 3 times and still the same issue. After restoring fresh 6.1 copy on my 4S and jailbreaking it is stuck on apple logo after hard reset = tethered jailbreak. Of course weather app is not working. Hope there will be fix soon. Thanks evad3rs.

      just backup your files to the computer ,restore your device to factory setting via itunes and finally Re-jailbreak using evasi0n and u r done
      any issues contact @turck_132

    I figured out a solution to the Cydia download error. Eveyone, right now, safely Power Off your iDevice. Leave it off for 30min. – 1 Hour. Let your phone cool down! By then I should be done downloading what I need. At that time. Power up your phone… you should be good to download… your welcome

    Damn lol so also had trouble rebooting the device. It kept freezing at the apple logo start up screen; Cydia isn’t loading any apps either I guess to many people are trying to use it at once

  • shabz

    Ok after JB iphone5 dirt reboot crashes and simple reboot with power and home button fixes it. After cydia is working but keeps giving me a sizemismatch error on most tweaks. So JEFF sort something out bro

    • http://twitter.com/DustinSnider Dustin Snider ✅

      This is due to Cydia being overloaded, Give it time and if there is still an issue you had a bad jailbreak Restore and rejailbreak.

      • shabz

        You sure. I’m not a newbie to JB. Never has size mismatch before

      • http://twitter.com/DustinSnider Dustin Snider ✅

        Trust me I am no “newbie”. Size mismatch commonly happens when repos aren’t ready for a large influx of users from a fresh jailbreak, 90% of the time they are repo side issues. Like I said wait and if it still doesn’t work you’ll be part of that 10% that has an issue with there jailbreak.

      • shabz

        Thanks man

  • adam lompis

    I find it funny how instead of taking the time to read previous comments and posts, Several people are still complaining about the errors on Cydia..If you take the time to look, you will see the question has been answered MULTIPLE times.

  • http://www.facebook.com/paulfevo Paul Featherstone

    Everyone chill Cydia will work if people let it settle down go look into some tweaks you want for a few hrs then go back

    • http://www.facebook.com/joe.jonsen Joe Jonsen

  • Smallde93

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1440790373 E.J. Barker

    I used evasi0n and automatically the stock Weather icon appeared on my iPad Mini 6.1 all on its own but crashes after reboot… 0dd…

  • legalidiot

    Does this make it illegal now for iPad users everywhere? They installed an Apple App on your device that should never of been there? Kinda of like incorporating the old YT into iOS 6 without modifications.

    • http://twitter.com/Cesuva Matthew

      No, because the app was there to begin with, but Apple hid it. The jailbreak just enabled the app. If you don’t believe me check @MuscleNerd’s timeline.

  • davred64

    Nope not working but unlickily I live in England and it always pisses down so weather app is not needed

    • http://twitter.com/Cesuva Matthew

  • http://twitter.com/jpaladini Jason Paladini

    I am having an issue with the “Apps for Passbook” link within the Passbook app. When you click it, it forwards you to the app store but I receive a “Cannot connect to app store message”. Also after receiving this message I can’t use the categories tab there either. Anyone else experiencing this?

  • Edward Pang

    I just jailbreaked my iPad mini. The weather app actually appeared, and is working, though in iPhone size.

  • http://twitter.com/adampaulik Adam Paulik

    SOLUTION:
    1) restore
    2) set as new idevice (no pin code for service, no appstore, icloud … login), dont conect to itunes

    3) jailbreak
    PROBLEM SOLVED

    • Ray V

      I did that. The weather app still doesnt work. Not a big deal.

      • http://twitter.com/adampaulik Adam Paulik

        I hope it works for part of you. I had the problem too and this helped me.

      Saying that maybe its because of different built models
