I have had my iPhone 5S jailbroken for some time and notifications had not been a problem. However, recently, I have not been getting push notifications (from the lockscreen or home screen) from 2 apps that I use regularly, snapchat and Facebook. I have checked all the settings and they are good! Here are the things that I have tried and still have no luck.

1. Restore the iPhone, jailbreak, then restore from backup (I want to restore from a backup because I want to be able to keep my photos and messages)
2. Download iFile and delete the SectionInfo.Plist file
3. Reinstall Facebook and Snapchat
4. Log out and login - didn't work
5. Turn them off in the notification center and then on again - didn't work

The only that I have CONFIRMED that works is RESTORING MY PHONE TO A CLEAN IOS7 (non jailbroken) and install Facebook and test the notifications there. Then it works fine.

If anyone has a fix, PLEASE TELL ME!

Silly question, but did you check and see if they are turned on in your settings? Whenever I jailbroke my phone, it turned off ALL of my push notifications.

Yes I have checked that they were all turned
On
Have you checked notification settings in Safe Mode as well?

I remember a similar problem when being on iOS6. Can't remember the specific apps affected but also no push notifications (neither sound nor showing up in NC) although settings were on.
Went into Safe Mode and checked settings to find the notifaction settings turned off. Turned it on and returned to 'normal' mode. All notifications worked properly ever since.

This happened recently to me all of a sudden, even when in safe mode. I ended up just restoring and starting as new

It was a pain and time consuming to set up my device again but my push notifications are working again!

I would do the same but I only care about my iMessages and photos. I want the photos to stay in my camera roll.
