The Evasi0n iOS 6.1 jailbreak tool which launched on Monday has enabled many users jailbreak the iPhone 5, iPad 4 and other devices running iOS 6.1. But some users experienced trouble with the app and evad3rs are working on fixing the problems. While some users have complained of a non-functional weather app, others have experienced a long reboot on a jailbroken iOS devices.
In case of the broken weather app, users are unable to get weather information though they have not complained of the non-functionality of iPhone 5. The evad3rs have found ways to fix these problems. These fixes will appear when the team updates the Evasi0n iOS 6.1 jailbreak tool and will also show up as an update in Cydia for anyone who has already used the Evasi0n app so there is no need to re-jailbreak to get the fixes.
There is no eta on when the jailbreak iOS 6.1 fixes will appear in Cydia, but users will see a notification in the app when the fix is live. Thanks to the instructions from the evad3rs, Evasi0n iOS 6.1 jailbreak users who do not want to wait for the Cydia update to fix the weather app can run the fix on their own. The Evasi0n iOS 6.1 jailbreak users will need to install Open SSH and Mobile Terminal from Cydia and use pod2g’s script and the following directions.
- Open Mobile Terminal then type: “su root” without the quotes and press enter.
- Type your password, likely “alpine” without the quotes.
- Copy and paste the script below into Mobile Terminal.
