Exclamation Grey'd Out Songs In Music App? [Fix For JailBroken iPhone]

Well, I had the horrible Greyed out songs in my "Music" App on iOS 5.01 On My iPhone 4. I Tried Every Possible Solution On The Internet And No Luck. I was in No Mood To Restore and put everything back 1 by 1.

So, I Found A Solution:

Requirements:

1) JailBroken iPhone.
2) iFile.
3) Common Sense [LoL]

STEPS:
1] So, On Your iTunes Make Sure You Have Selected "Manually Manage My Music & Videos" And Sync Once. (This Solves The Problem For Some People, If Not.. Then Continue)

2] Go To iFile Then "var/mobile/Media/iTunes_Control/iTunes"

3] Look For "MediaLibrary.sqlitedb" and "MediaLibrary.sqlitedb-shm"

4] Once Located, Back Them Up Somewhere (Just Incase) And Delete The Ones In "iTunes" Folder.

5] Restart iPhone & Open Music App & You Should Get Something Like "No Content- You Can Download Music From iTunes". Which Means All The Grey'd Out Songs Are Gone.

6] Go To iTunes & Sync Songs To Your iPhone.



*****Tested On iPhone 4, Baseband 1.59.00, iOS 5.01. & Worked Like A Charm...

Any Questions, Feel Free To Ask...

P.S. I'M NOT RESPONSABLE IF YOU SCREW UP YOUR IPHONE ETC. WHICH IS WHY I PUT "COMMON SENSE AS A REQUIREMENT"

I Guess I posted This In The Wrong Spot? I Figured It Was The Right Section Since I Got This Problem In iOS 5 And Never Had This Problem Running iOS 4.x...

Followed the above directions exactly, to a T and Cydia stopped loading/working.

The only workaround was to restore.

Proceed with caution.
