    I thought a poll would be useful to see if anyone is having problems after the jailbreak for their iPhone 5 using the new Evasion jailbreak for iOS 6.1

    Please vote if you jailbroke your phone.

    The only app that I have successfully working so far is bitesms. Every other app I have downloaded is terrible so far and even my wifi connectivity has been wacking out since the jailbreak. The stock weather app crashes here too but I just use TWC instead.

    im new to the JB scene so i only downloaded biteSMS which i've been hearing works flawlessly. I havent tried downloading anything else since. I guess im waiting til i know which threads work perfectly and those that dont. Plus one crash is my default weather app. It wont open at all. Nothing serious but its there.

    That's perfect. This poll will be more controlled if we don't have third party apps to control for.

    I'm mainly interested in problems with the jailbreak itself. Problems with third party apps should just be made a note of in comments.

    I think the stock weather app crashing should still be considered a stability problem however, since it is a stock app.

    The only bug, but not for the 5 but iPod Touch 4G is that it slows it down dramatically. Just hit my settings via Apple's stock settings and there is a long delay. I won't be jailbreaking my iPhone 5 as a result.

    had to unjailbreak my iphone 5 today was working fine then all of a sudden got no service sign in left corner of phone and could not make any calls or text, putback to factory settings and works fine again so i think it was definitely the jailbreak that caused it. anybody else had this problem?

    I debated making a thread myself to ask if many people were having 0 issues with their jailbreak....everything for me has been absolutely perfect. Better than green p0sion tbh

    Everything seems fine, aside from Scrollingboard causing full folders to appear incorrectly on an iPhone 5. Likely due to the longer screen size.

    CDMA iPhone 5 No Service - Network Not Available

    I had this issue using evasi0n on iPhone 5 with iOS 6.1 and found an old thread that suggested turning off data roaming and all of the other sub settings for cellular under General settings and sure enuf without even having to restart my service was back.

    too bad I had uninstalled one by one half the tweaks I had installed but this fixed it for me.

    Unfortunately I can't tell u which tweak or app or even the jailbreak process caused this all I can say is I was using my phone and it just powercycled for no reason and boom no service.

    Hope this helps someone.

    This is the link that helped me:

    No service error

    Applied the jailbreak to iphone 5. "No service" error the next day. Restarting and other things did not help. Had to restore.

    The jailbreak itself has been perfectly fine for me
