    That happened to me too. If you have mobile terminal there's a script you can run to fix that issue.

    You have to login as root in order for it to run correctly.

    Here it is:

    #!/bin/bash
    chmod -x /usr/libexec/mobile_installation_proxy
    killall -9 mobile_installation_proxy
    rm /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installation.plist /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.LaunchServices-045.csstore
    launchctl stop com.apple.mobile.installd
    launchctl start com.apple.mobile.installd

    while [ ! -f /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installation.plist ];
    do
    sleep 1
    done
    while [ ! -f /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.LaunchServices-045.csstore ];
    do
    sleep 1
    done

    sleep 10

    chmod +x /usr/libexec/mobile_installation_proxy
    sync
    reboot;

    It worked for me. I hope it helps you out.

    Yes, Siri can but sometimes the jailbreak messes up that ability. It doesn't always though. When I jailbroke my iPhone and iPad on 6.1.2 the iPad could launch apps via Siri but the iPhone could not. I ran the script I put in my previous post and it fixed it. When I re-jailbroke when I upgraded to 6.1.3 my iPhone could launch apps via Siri but my iPad could not. Once again, I ran the script in my previous post and it fixed it.

    I haven't had any issues with asking Siri to open my apps.

    Dude, it totally worked for me too. Had my iPhone 5 for almost a month now and for the first time I am taking full advantage of Siri. I recommend this method for other jailbreakers with Siri issues.
