    You didn't really need to create a new thread for this. :\

    You wouldn't happen to have AppSync installed would you?

    @planetbeing
    I strongly suspect AppSync is causing the problem with Weather given the syslogs I've gotten.

    @planetbeing
    People are reporting uninstalling AppSync AND rebooting are solving their issues. YMMV.

    Or people who want to develop apps and test them on devices without having to pay the Apple developer fee.... *




    * Although most are dirty pirates :cool:

    It's sad because paid tweaks works better and they are less likely to crash etc.

    If you're jailbroken you can run your own code without app sync.

    Here is how i fixed mine, just a few minutes ago. (That last cydia update for Jailbreak pkg didn´t fixed the weather app, it might come on a 2nd upgrade), in the meantime you can follow this steps, basically remove Appsync Libs, reboot, regenerate plist file that was damaged by Jailbreak-Appsync and reboot to take effect.


    - Remove Appsync Lib 5.1+ from Cydia, this pkg usally comes as a dependency for Vshare or other App like that
    . Open Cydia
    . Search
    . Type Appsync and remove the one that has a green thick on the side (That might remove also the associated App that is dependant too, normally Vshare, Installous (RIP) or other alike
    . Remove it
    - Reboot

    - Log to your phone via SSH, we´ll need a console for next step (install OpenSSH: default user-pass: root/alpine)
    *Kudos to the author of this script:

    #!/bin/bash
    chmod -x /usr/libexec/mobile_installation_proxy
    killall -9 mobile_installation_proxy
    rm /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installation.plist /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.LaunchServices-045.csstore
    launchctl stop com.apple.mobile.installd
    launchctl start com.apple.mobile.installd

    while [ ! -f /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installation.plist ];
    do
    sleep 1
    done
    while [ ! -f /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.LaunchServices-045.csstore ];
    do
    sleep 1
    done

    sleep 10
    reboot

    - After that last reboot your weather app should be functional again.

    Cheers,
    Alex.

    Normally Appsync is used to transfer unpaid apps to itunes as backup and the other way around, usually installed along applications like Installous, Vshare which are used to download pirated apps. BAD BAD :S

    I'm pretty sure you need a semi colon after the last reboot to force the reboot. If you don't use the semi colon, worse case you reboot manually. Luckily I haven't had to use this script since my weather app has worked since day 1. The only bug I experienced was the long reboots. But the latest update in Cydia has fixed that problem.

    You can, but it's a hell of a lot easier to just make the IPA in xcode and sync it to your phone.

    haha sooo true! Man those reboots were brutal. It's amazing how smooth my experience has been with jailbreaking since iOS5 and the 4S came out. The 4S and 5 are absolute BEASTS and can handle soooo many tweaks and packages, so long as nothing conflicts with each other. Jailbreaking is looking great these days, minus the long (but much appreciated) wait period between new jailbreaks.

    to tell you the truth I never knew what appsync was for I just downloaded because I heard ppl talking about it. All my apps are paid for. Anyways my phone never had the problem with the weather not working until I just downloaded the new update that was in cydia. Now it crashes and I even uninstalled appsync.

    Never mind I powered down my phone and booted it back up and now it works again. I even reinstalled appsync and the weather app still works for ppl that need it, but once you power down your device it doesn't work again.
