How to fix some mysterious problems.

I found the following inserted into Info.plist in the and had to remove it to get the app to exist again on the springboard.


(I changed angle brackets to square brackets in the code so it would show up properly)

I think the culprit is probably the latest Evasi0n update.

Yes, I have an iPad, yes I ported the app over by hand from my other iOS device, yes, Evasi0n should leave it alone. Why does it hide the app?

The original version of evasi0n had a bug in it which would cause the weather app icon to show up on jailbroken ipads, but the weather app wouldn't actually work. They later released an update that hid the weather app on ipads because it didn't work anyway.
