    I keep trying to turn it on on the iPad Pro and the switch turns green but it will turn right back off. Anyone else having this issue?

    A growing number of users have been reporting that Location Services on the device is spontaneously setting itself to Off sporadically after the latest Pangu jailbreak. Of course, the repercussion of that is that apps are no longer able to access location data from the device.

    Thankfully, there is a fix.

    Install "libLocation":

    Step 1: Launch Cydia on the jailbroken device.

    Step 2: Use the built-in search functionality in Cydia to search for the libLocation package.

    Step 3: Install it! Worked for me and should work for you.

    I think I'm going to hold off on this JB 9.0.2 has none of these issues

    Thanks, I'll give this a try. What about sound after making a call, too? I've noticed after I make a call, ALL sounds a muted. The only way around it is a respring (which fails) and then Springboard crashes which makes me respring again.

    Perfect! Worked like a charm!

    I can't blame you.
    I'm happily attached to my 9.0.2 jb too :)

    I thought I would ask here as this is the 9.3.3 location issue thread ;)

    I've jailbroken with the Chinese version via Safari (1 year cert) and in order for me to get location services working after a reboot (and re-jailbreak) I have to either install LibLocation if it is not installed, or uninstall it if it is installed.

    Has anyone else had this and did they find a way to enable the location services without having to load or unload the LibLocation package every reboot?

    I've also tried resetting my network settings to no avail.

    Is there another fix out there?

    Much appreciated

    I JB using the Safari method.

    I ended up Resetting Network Settings and using the JB app to re JB.

    Location Services now stays on.
