Evasi0n Jailbreakers Slam Cydia Servers, Experience Weather App Issues

Evasi0n Jailbreakers Slam Cydia Servers, Experience Weather App Issues

Posted February 5, 2013 at 1:39am by iClarified
Those who were able to successfully jailbreak their device were met with lots of server errors in Cydia as millions hit the repos to download their favorite tweaks and themes.

As saurik points out (Jay Freeman), the big difference with this jailbreak was how the team pointed toward an exact release time, which caused the huge influx of new users launching Cydia. Saurik has been working around the clock to help rearchitect his repository setup, but for now, it seems many of us will simply have to be patient, wait it out and hope the heavy load of users balances out.

Other users are reporting issues with the weather app crashing on iPhone and iPod versions, and appearing on the iPad jailbreaks. The evad3rs team is aware of this, and is working around the clock to help push out an update via Cydia. Please note that you do not need to rejailbreak if you are currently having weather app issues. Simply wait for the dev team to release an update via Cydia, and you can update there once you are prompted.

We've also been seeing some of our users running into devices stuck on "patching kernel" or "Finding Offsets" during the jailbreak. We recommend you wait for as long as you can, but if that fails, hold down home and power to force a reboot (via Pod2g).

Finally, some users have been having devices randomly get stuck on boot at the Apple logo. If this happens, we recommend that you hold home and power for ten seconds and keep trying. Eventually, the device should boot. If that does not work, try holding volume up button if you recently installed a MobileSubstrate tweak.

We'll be posting more detailed tutorials very shortly. To be the first to know when these are available please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS.

Idk bout you guys but I have an iphone 5 and After downloading many jailbroken apps and tweaks, the top bar where it shows the time, LTE, and battery doesnt show up when Im at my home screen or lock screen. So basically the top part where you see the time is just blank. It only shows up when Im in an actual app. Anyone else having the same problem?? My sbsettings doesnt work either when I swipe the top.

I had this problem once with my ipad. A theme I installed also installed a tweak that shuts off the status bar so that it would look better. I forget what the teak is called, but it should be in your installed packages. Find it and uninstall it, or uninstall and recent tweaks you and you should be golden.

Hi all my iPhone is stuck on apple logo after jailbreak Hard reset doesn't work What should I do??
bill - February 5, 2013 at 7:20pm
if you can get back in via safe mode, remove the last app you installed in Cydia
Lukluk - February 5, 2013 at 7:24pm
It won't open I'm totally stuck can't do anything not even restore

Connect the iPhone's USB cable to your computer, but not your iPhone. Turn your iPhone off. If the phone won't turn off in the traditional manner, just keep holding the buttons until the screen goes dark. Once you've turned the device off, press the home button on the face of the device and plug in the USB cable to the device's dock connector. When it turns on, keep pressing the home button until the iTunes logo appears on the screen.Then This should reboot eventually

love u guys....nice work dev team

after Jailbreaking, my Weather app stopped opening, touching the icon would open the app and then immediately it would quit. I had to restore my iPhone 5 to remove the Jailbreak. Weather works fine again.

Thanks a lot to all of you, this is the action, that most of us love because of the thrill, iPhone without Jailbreak is only half the fun, love you guys

Made a $20 donation before the jailbreak:) Thank you & keep up the great work guys:)

1. Millions of people were waiting on this to hop on to the iP5 and other new devices. Wonder what it'll do to Apple stock. Even though the "discourage" and even counter any JB efforts, they have to be watching this closely and smiling from the benefits. 2. I donated $1 before it was release because it seemed promising. If just everyone donated from $1 to $5 after jailbreaking they would have the funds to put out any future versions much quicker. Also the cash would help to offset any recruiting efforts Apple puts on the current JB team. JB Team: Please commit to using a large portion of the money for this purpose after you've taken your profit for a job well done. 3. Any complainers out there...remember this is FREE and the resources (hours, servers, etc) is not FREE, so if you're angry, DONATE some money! Naturally the server overloads will subside over the next couple hours/days as everyone gets their JB on. I can confirm that when it was just released and you followed the instructions exactly, it worked perfectly! iP5, iPT4G, iP4,iP4S,iPad1G,2G,3G. Thanks Evasi0n TEAM! You guys are amazing!

having same problem, stuck at apple and wont load. Any suggestions?
Bill - February 5, 2013 at 5:31am
hard reboot not working
rexology - February 5, 2013 at 3:46am
For those who already had a semi-tethered/tethered jailbreak....no need for restoring your phone back to 6.0.1+. Simply, respring phone (allows Cydia to refresh all the sources) and search for evasi0n 6 untether. Query should find something. Download and install. Reboot device and it should be untethered without having to restoring. NOTE: Only for phones that have already been jailbroken tethered 6.0 - 6.1. Cheers!

the weather started to crash after i entered cydia the first time.

I'm just going to report a small problem in the evasi0n jailbreak, when I go to set a default wallpaper as my background a black screen comes up with no selection for wallpaper, how do I fix this?
Elizabeth - February 5, 2013 at 3:10am
wow ! 4 million+ lovers of the JB have downloaded the link. I am in awe !! It's a no wonder the servers are on overload ! Also sitting here thinking, "if we each gave $1.00,, and the math speaks for itself... I sure hope and pray that many did donate, for that team so deserves it !! They have truly opened doors for themselves in all this hard work they have done,,, doors that they will reap of so many wonderful things !! Thank you Evad3ers !! Thank you so much !! xo
rexology - February 5, 2013 at 3:48am

I have problem with iPhone 4S getting stuck at reboot after a successful jailbreak. First time it rebooted after a hard reset. However, after a restore and re-jailbreak, hard reset also was not able to reboot. It reboots successfully after shutdown and starting with iPhone connected to a Mac
don - February 5, 2013 at 2:48am
Yeah Cydia servers are slammed! I'm giving Saurik a break and wait it out. I live in Colorado so the weather app is useless, it's never right anyways lol.
rimwar - February 5, 2013 at 2:22am
Cydia Patch for JB is out... Fixed the weather app on my Iphone 5 no problem.
