How to remove Yahoo branding from Notification Center

By , Jan 21, 2014

NC Cleaner Featured

NC Cleaner is a brand new jailbreak tweak that does one thing, and one thing only: It allows you to remove the Yahoo branding that appears in the bottom of Notification Center’s Today view in iOS 7.

If you have a special hatred for the Yahoo branding, then this is one of the tweaks that you can use to get rid of it. We’ve got a before and after comparison video inside for you to check out.

As you might imagine, NC Cleaner is totally an install and go affair. There are no options or settings to configure, so if you want the Yahoo branding back, you’ll need to uninstall the tweak.

Head over to Cydia to download it now if you want to give it a try. It is, of course, a free download on Cydia’s BigBoss repo.

    i would use it but don’t like the single line date on the phone.

  • Beezure

    Yeah it totally cuts off the date!!

  • abdullah575

    it’s not helpful , Yeah

  • Pramod Mohandas

    Dat single line date ! Meh.

  • Mistrjon

    This is easily done by editing a .plist. And I have no issues with anything being cut off.

    Go to /System/Library/WeeAppPlugins/AttributionWeeApp.bundle/English.lproj and open Localizable.strings in a text editor. Then replace the text after “ATTRIBUTION_PHONE” or “ATTRIBUTION_PAD” with just a space. Back out into the AttributionWeeApp.bundle folder and rename “SiriYBangLogo@2x.png” to “SiriYBangLogo@2x.png.bak” and then respring.

      Tried this and text still shows, can you help please?

      • Mistrjon

        What does your Localizable.strings look like? This is mine:

        “ATTRIBUTION_PAD” = “Weather information provided by”;
        “ATTRIBUTION_PHONE” = “”;
        “STOCK” = “stock”;
        “WEATHER” = “weather”;

      • Darren

        Here’s mine

        “ATTRIBUTION_PAD” = “Weather information provided by”;
        “ATTRIBUTION_PHONE” = “”;
        “STOCK” = “stock”;
        “WEATHER” = “weather”;

      • Darren

        Strange mine’s the same but I sorted it by renaming AttributionWeeApp.bundle to AttributionWeeAppbak.bundle , thanks for your help :)

      • Mistrjon

        Why did you rename the bundle?

        Also, make sure to reply to my comment otherwise I don’t get a notification.

      • Darren

        Sorry new to this, renamed it because couldn’t figure out why our strings were the same yet mine didn’t work. Renaming it has worked with no side effects so all good.

      • Mistrjon

        Interesting. You copied it and then renamed it?

      • Darren

        Yeah backed it up to box just in case, then renamed it. If I ever want it back (doubtful) I can just remove the bak from file name. Oh yeah am I doing it right now, are you getting notifications.

      • Mistrjon

        Alright.

        And yes.

      • la55iter

        Renaming worked for me as well… Since all I did was add to the file name though, I didn’t back it up; instead, I just bookmarked it in iFile for quick access to revert to original (doubtful that will happen).

    • Aninha

      Thank you. Appreciate it. Better than installing a tweak.

      If the language set on your iPhone is other than English, instead of English.Iproj you should choose the corresponding folder.

      I’m Brazilian, so I edited the folder pt.Iproj (same way as Mistrjon said, just change the folder).

      • Mistrjon

        Good point!

    I never even noticed the yahoo branding down there lol

    • kadeem kadz Dulice

      lol

  • olgagela

    Was apparently removed? I have saved file, I liker his tweak very much.
    But there is an alternative from the same Developer:
    “NC Date Customizer” & “No Yahoo!”
    I’ll stick with NC Cleaner;-)
    I like the single line date

  • TonyVee73

    Hopefully, someone here can help me out. No matter what I do, I can not get the weather to show on the today section of the NC. I Have locations services on and the weather tab is set to on under Location services.

    Anyone have this issue and figure out how to fix it? Thanks, Tony.

    • olgagela

      Go to (iFile)
      “/var/mobile/Library/BulletinBoard”
      and delete “SectionInfo.plist” & Respring(or Reboot)

      • TonyVee73

        Thank you very much!!!

      • TonyVee73

        Thank you. It worked on my iPhone 5 but not my iPad Mini 1 (cellular/wifi).

        On my iPad, it pops up and then disappears right away.

      • olgagela

        I do not know if it works without wetter.app installed.
        On my iPad 4 (with iPhone wetter.app) works.

      • TonyVee73

        On my wife’s non-JB ipad mini on iOS 7, it has the weather. Not a big deal since I only use the iPad at home.

    • Hakiim Mislam

      using ifile, go to var/mobile/library/bulletinBoard and delete sectionInfo.plist. then respring your device

    • filter351

      I had same problem, I had to reset all settings in my iPhone before I got it working again. Hope this helps.

      • TonyVee73

        The suggestions from Hikiim and olgagela worked on my iP5″

        using ifile, go to var/mobile/library/bulletinBoard and delete sectionInfo.plist. then respring your device

  • Tony

    Yep it’s not up anymore, taken down for some reason.

  • Ana Paula

    Unlike my friend Tonyvee73, I don’t want the weather information to appear on NC. I would like to maintain the summary/abstract (don’t know the word used in English) for the day, but don’t want specifically the information about the weather. I can’t find a way to get it off. I want date, time, summary (showing my alarm, etc..), but don’t want weather. Can someone help me? Thanks.

  • Alexander

    Hi Guys,

    I have the following problem on my 5S!

    Any idea to fix this problem?

    Thank you

    • Mistrjon

      Why the hell did you post here?

    • Tony

      I would uninstall each app and then reinstall them.

  • svartkuken

    DEAR GOD, why the single date line when it’s NEVER visible?

  • PiraCee

    Apple where kind enough to include this feature for iPhone 4 users running iOS 7.. -_-

  • http://sciencedem.blogspot.com editor

    what is Apple even doing; partnering with Yahoo, and Microsoft Bing?

  • michaelrw

    Im not seeing this tweak in any of the repos.. not in BigBoss.. just me? maybe the developer removed it…

    • serialkiller

      search : no yahoo! this is the new name

  • michaelrw

    anyone willing to post a download link to the DEB for this tweak? use backtodeb or custombackup (terminal script – run as root) to repackage the tweak and then upload to dropbox or similar..

  • Adam Corona IV

    I cant find it, anyone else having that problem?
