    I jailbroke my iPad. Maps can't locate me anymore. Any ideas? I did search and others had this issue, so I made a thread about it.

    Works fine for me too after JB. You probably installed a Cydia app that's causing this but who knows.

    It may have been SBSettings. I knew it was too early to install. I'll probably restore tomorow and try again. Damn.

    My GPS doesn't work either. I am restoring my ipad now. What I will do is add all my JB apps one by one and check my GPS/Maps app after each JB app installation. I'll post back in a couple minutes.

    In order to free yourself from the shackles of apple you must become lost.

    It's kinda poetic :p

    Oh ok. yeah I did install that last night. But uninstalled it to because of the bug. After I uninstalled it though, I still had the problem. So I am going restore and re-add my my apps.

    Well after I restored and jailbroke my ipad again, maps/gps did work. However, after I installed the following apps using PKG Backup, maps stopped working again. The apps that Pkg Backup installed are:

    MIM
    iSteamy
    iFile
    Fontswap
    Rock
    Braless
    backgrounder

    I am going to not use Pkg Backup this tme to install my apps. I have no choice but to install one app, test map, install another app,test map and so forth.

    Do anybody have any of those apps I have listed installed on your ipad? Maybe if everyone has a common app, we can pinpoint which app is causing the GPS Maps not to work.

    I am installing the apps now.I will install backgrounder last. However If everything works fine before I install backgrounder, I will assume that's the problem and will not install.

    Well I restored, added my apps back along with the JB apps. I tested maps after I installed each JB app and it worked. However, I did not install Backgrounder. I think that that's the app that's conflicting with the Map/GPS apps. Plus we both have the same problem and the only app we have in common is backgrounder. So I'm going leave backgrounder uninstalled for now.

    I don't think it's backgrounder my gps was working this morning but now it's not. I've been using backgrounder since last night (first app I installed). The gps was fine then.

    Well I'm sorry but I know when I installed had backgrounder installed along with all those other apps, my maps/gps didn't work. Idk maybe mine stopped working because I restored all my JB apps by using Pkg backup. While this time I individually installed each app or maybe backgrounder might as well have a bug. idk..I'll let someone else think of what it be.

    I can confirm that backgrounder is fine and that GPS still works with it installed.

    I believe the problems came up when I installed SB settings.

    I did have installous at one point that may have been the problem for me. I never got sb settings, but there could be multiple apps that's causing this. Unfortunely at the moment even removing all those apps doesn't help.
