    I have an iPad mini Wifi 64GB model with iOS 6.1 on it and its jailbroken. It's been working completely fine for the past month or so and just a few hours ago, I lost the ability to send images over iMessage. I tried resetting network settings and turning it off and on as well as a double hard reset. Nothing's worked so far and to make things stranger, I haven't downloaded anything from Cydia in about a week. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    This has happened to me too, albeit i have an iPhone 5 on iOS 6.1.3

    It was working up until around 3 hours ago, now when i send a picture message it reverts to sms rather than iMessage.

    iMessage texts work fine though and i can receive images over iMessage :confused:

    Maybe Apple did it?

    Just a random theory but could it possibly be a way for Apple to divert people from jailbreaking? Maybe they implemented a detection system? I have the tweak xCon to stop other apps from detecting my jailbreak but it obviously hasn't worked if Apple did this.

    ----------


    Tried this but it didn't seem to work for me. Thanks though.

    This happened to me, however I sorted it by following the instructions of one user on here. Assuming you have the tweak, Manual Correct Pro installed, remove it and reboot your device ( dont respring). This was the critter that was causing my imessage mms issues. All sorted following its removal. The free version of manual correct does not cause issues I might add.

    Did you REBOOT your device after uninstalling? Also check your iMessage is set to on.

    I believe it is an Apple server thing. I can send pictures to my friends fine, but they can't send them to me in iMessage. I am jailbroken.

    What you can do is install sbsettings

    in SBsettings more/mobilesunstrate addons you cab disable all your JB tweaks/apps restart and see if the problem persist, if it is gone than 1 of the tweaks is causing the problem

    pretty sure its not any tweaks because i am mirroring all the same tweaks on my gfs phone and she has no such issue. im really beginning to think its an apple imessage issue.

    If your GF phone does not have issues it isn't an Apple issue..

    i get what you are saying.

    it seems like imessage is getting stuck once it tries to send a pic. its more likely the send-side of the message because incoming pictures are fine. something is causing it to error out and revert to sms to send the picture.

    It's definitely tweak related guys. In my case it was Manual Correct Pro... Removed it and mms send with no problems on iMessage.
