    What tweaks have you installed? Perhaps you installed a different bluetooth stack that is not compatible.

    Due to Cydia being overload, i had biteSMS, NCSettings, Auxo and Zephyr and ifile. I didnt think any of them affected bluetooth but im not really sure.

    Bluetooth

    I as well am having issues connecting via Bluetooth - to Ford SYNC. Running iPhone 5 evasi0n jailbreak on AT&T. Currently I have Activator, Auxo, Barrel, Springtomize 2, Winterboard, Zephyr, SwipeSelection. My major problem is that I am unable to "forget device" to try to re-pair. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Just want to chime in. After reading this thread I tried and successfully connected to BT speakers. I have pretty similar tweaks installed as most of you. biteSMS, Auxo, Springtomize, NCsettings, DashboardX.

    I started another thread that can be closed, forgot to search prior to starting a new one, my bad. Anyways I rebooted into safe mode and Bluetooth is now working and allowing me to Forget the Device. I have a lot of tweaks installed and would take forever to post them all. So hopefully that helps some other people out with the same issue and that a fix in Cydia appears soon.

    Hmm. Such a great tweak its almost worth putting phone into safe mode to connect to car. Hopefully Auxo knows about the issue?

    I had the same issue with bluetooth on an AT&T iPhone 5 and Ford SYNC. After reading this thread, I removed Auxo and was able to successfully connected as a new device. Once the new connection was established, reinstalled Auxo again and was still able to connect.

    I noticed the jailbreak broke my bluetooth audio out. When I am connected to my jabra bluetooth speakerphone it plays the music through the phone's speaker, and the only thing going through the jabra is the phone calls.

    I also was having problems with Bluetooth and Auxo. Once I removed it, the problem went away. I'm planning on telling the developer "it's broke, how can I help"

    I bet the weekillbakground pro is killing it, as I have that too. I'll dive into all the processes it's killing then report what I find.

    Don't jailbreak, it really screws up your phone. ESP your phones security.

    Don't speed either.... it's bad for your car.

    And don't troll, it's bad for your image.

    ----------

    And PS, saying something like "it really screws up your phone" is so uneducated. The tweaks to do things are what can cause other things to fail, not the actual jailbreak. Do you even understand what a "jailbreak" is? It's gaining root access to be able to make changes you want to. So if you make changes and it screws it up, it's on you. You're the kinda person they lock things for the rest of us down for though.

    Not trolling. Just saying, don't judge, is bad for your reputation. I make iOS apps for a living, you will get hacked if you open your phones root access. In your analogy, you are now speeding at 150 on a 100. Not merely speeding.

    Wrong.

    You screw up your phone with the packages you install.

    Never heard a legit case of a jb device getting hacked aside from a 'message' that went out to users who left alpine as the root password.

    You are right, but I was looking at the big picture. If you jailbreak I assume you are not going to just jailbreak and not install anything else.

    ----------

    Also a lot of hacks are not known lol. Hackers spends a lot of time hiding itself. Rooted phones is heaven for them.

    Just saying, if you are very tech savvy you probably be ok but hackers are always better than you in the security subject.

    You would think that at least one case would get press about compromised iOS devices. I still haven't seen a story about compromised iOS jailbroken or otherwise. Obviously all devices are vulnerable when plugged in by USB, as that is how the jailbreak is performed, but I always get bent out of shape when people say jailbroken iOS is not secure. Sure it is theoretically less secure, but in practice the only thing that can get you is bad packages and not changing your root password.

    Is very easy to make a useful app, and then that app to install another package in the background without you knowing because it is rooted. I'm just pointing out how easy it is. How often it happens? Just look at how many window users get hacked.

    Anyways is no big deal to me, I just want to put better warning to users.

    my point is that the problems that happen on windows simply don't happen on iOS. You're just flinging poo.

    If it's so easy, it would be happening now and cases would be all over the internet.
