    Pretty simple question really. I've been away from jailbreaking for a while and was wondering if there is still no fix for the usage time disappearing after a respring?

    I've never had my usage time show anything but a dash.

    Yeah this really annoys me, everytime I want to try and measure my battery life I have to make sure I don't install anything from cydia.
    I wouldn't of thought this would be hard to fix.

    I was just about to start a thread about this, glad I found this one first. Too bad there isn't a fix. At least I know it is already a known issue.

    There is not a "fix" since it isn't really an bug or anything, this is working as intended. iOS doesn't "support" respringing, when you respring and comeback up the OS doesn't reconized what just happend, so it doesn't know if you reboot, or charge or crash or what, so what it does is it halt all the counters and wait until it reach a "known" state. This is either fully discharge or fully charge to start counting again.

    I thought a reboot yielded the same results, that is, giving a dash for time?

    Turning the phone on and off alone will not give the dashes.
