    Since the 2nd of January I noticed that the calendar icon doesn't update it's date anymore. On the 2nd of January it still showed "Sunday 1". When I reboot or respring the date in the icon gets updated, but going into the next day the icon stays stuck on the day before. The calendar app (when opened) does show the correct date.

    I have an jailbroken iPhone 4 on 5.0.1 with only these Cydia tweaks installed:

    - IntelliscreenX
    - WeeSpeeddial
    - Bigify+
    - Zephyr
    - No folder badges

    Does someone else also have this issue?

    I noticed mine showing the 3rd this morning not the 4th. I went into General, Date and Time and turned the Set Automatically off , went in to Set Date and Time, I did not reset that as it was reading the correct details and then turned on the Set Automatically again.

    This worked for me but I suspect (know) it was more through luck than skill. I don't know if it will happen again tomorrow though.

    I hasten to add that mine is a bog standard, unbroken iPhone 4.

    Obviously, Bigify is the cause of this problem. The program saves the cache of the icon and then manipulates it when you turn it on.

    But I didn't have this problem before the 1st of January and Rory Manton has the same problem and he states that he doesn't even have a jailbroken iPhone. I also read on Twitter that there are more people with this issue.

    Here is a simple workaround to resolve this problem:-

    Power off the iphone by holding down the restart button (top of iphone towards the right) for a few seconds, then sliding the on-screen slider to the right to power off.

    Wait a few seconds, then hold down the same button until the iphone restarts. After restarting, you will find that the icon displays the correct day and date.

    (ps the problem is not due to your having jailbroken your iphone, it's just one of those things which Apple needs to correct)

    So any updates? I am having the same problem as OP. I am removing Bigify and seeing if that fixes the problem. It's a shame because Bigify is a great visual tweek. :(

    Removing Bigify solved the problem for me. If you still want to resize your icons and don't want to have this problem you can use Shrink or Springtomize as they don't seem to show the symptoms :)

    I saw this today (showed March 20th on the 21st). I don't have Bigify loaded.

    A respring fixed it but it is interesting.

    Usually this occurs when the Set Automatically toggle is not on.

    I have the same problem in ios 5.0.1 (jailbreak). It happens no matter what the date settings are : "set automatically" enabled or disabled, it still happens.
    Also I don't have Bigify installed (I had never heard of it before this thread!)
    Very annoying.

    This still happens on standard iPhone 4s 5.1 (9B179) - I experienced this bug yesterday. Well done Apple, not! :mad:

    Same problem here after jail breaking. I'm not using bigify. The only thing that corrects it respring/restart or turning off then back on auto time setting. Really annoying.

    The date on my lock screen on the weather widget (lockinfo) updates correctly though.

    Another place to look is in apple settings/Location Services/ scroll all the way down until you see System Services and double check if you have those on or off. Not sure if it would matter but didn't see that info above...

    Wow that weird! When was the last time you performed a "Reset Network Settings"? I'm just grasping at strings here:D

    Well I completely restored my phone a few weeks ago and rejailbroke it a few days ago and started having trouble with the date immediately (when midnight rolls around), as I recall. I'll try it...

    When I change time manually to test it, the date changes properly. But when the time is set on auto set it doesn't change. This means I can only really test it at midnight. Ug. The only thing I know to do is a restore and railbreak.

    Not sure if anyone is still following this but my phone says it is Thursday the 19th when it is in fact Friday the 20th. My phone is not jailbroken and I never even heard of Bigify. I'm all stock here. I just went into General settings and turned automatic time off and on. It is fine now.

    I turned automatic time off and on again and it appears to have worked. Won't know for sure until tomorrow though.
