    Hi guys.

    Every few days I keep getting this error message and find my Push Notifications do not work until I reboot. Rebooting does fix this, for a time, but the problem returns.

    I am jailbroken, as may be obvious. I am not unlocked and am on AT&T. I can't figure out what is causing the problem. I have a list of all JB apps that I have if needed, but I am not sure what would cause this. Mostly I have some modest visual tweaks and some lockinfo addons. It's rather annoying.

    Connecting to iTunes will not fix anything. Maybe a restore.

    Yeah, connecting to iTunes does nothing. I have to reboot. I've restored once and the problem returned a few weeks later.

    Anymore insights from you folks? I did a fresh restore yesterday and rebuilt my app list and JB setup from scratch and just got the notification error again.

    Did you restore from backup? That can perpetuate issues even after a restore. Try restoring and setting up as a new phone, syncing only one (push-enabled) app, and running it unjailbroken for a while to see if you get the same problem. If you do, then take it to the geniuses; if you don't, sync your remaining apps one at a time until the problem appears. If the problem does not reappear, then re-jailbreak your phone and install your jailbreak apps one at a time. If you still don't have the problem, then you're home free.

    Thanks for the help. I did set it up as new, not using a backup. I didn't even use the pkg backup for restoring JB apps. (Talk about time consuming!)

    I guess I'll give that a shot when I have some more time to kill. Ugh.

    I decided to register because of your problem. To get push notification working on a jailbroken iphone you need a set of unique certificates. This link will show you how. http://www.hackint0sh.org/f127/96716.htm

    This is not true. The OP has an officially-activated AT&T phone, and does not need any sort of push fix. What you're talking about only applies to hacktivated phones.

    Sorry about that. I missed the fact that his phone is officially-activated.

    Do you have AutoSilent installed? That app will cause the issue whenever a profile is active.

    Yes, I do. Hmm, that could be the problem then, thanks! Do you know if any of the other schedule—silencing apps suffer from this problem? Or is this not a problem but a feature to avoid alerts while silenced?

    I'm not locked into AS. It works great 90% of the time, but 10% it does not.

    "My Profiles" from Rock Your Phone doesn't have the issue, but it's non-intuitive and can be buggy. It also doesn't have the calendar options. That's why I switched to Auto Silent.

    I haven't seen any other complaints about this issue, so you may be right about it being a 'feature'.

    Thanks for the help. I noticed inside Auto Silent that there is a on/off for push notifications. I'd imagine that toggling this might fix the error message. I'll play around to see what this does to sounds at night, but at least I've traced (via all your help!) the source of the errors. <3

    Did you install AppSync? This can seriously mess up your ability to receive push notifications and make in-app purchases.

    Nope. Don't have it. Never had any problems w/ in-app purchases, either. Well, I've only done 1. Not a lot of the apps I have use this feature.

    Edit: I wasn't sure what AppSync was, so I Googled for it. From a glance at the search results, it's an app that helps to pirate stolen apps, which I don't do.

    Seriously. It was so frustrating. I've since turned the push blocking feature back on, now that I know what the problem was—it does work well and as intended. The 'not knowing' was killing me!
