How to fix some mysterious problems.

So I got this package so it could do exactly what it claims to do, send read receipts only when typing.

It works great for most the time, BUT for some reason some contacts it doesn't work. Instead of sending the read receipt when typing, it acts as if it's not even on at all. (This has caused some seriously awkward situations).

Ironically, I downloaded this app for the particular use of one person, and it works for everyone but that one person :(

Anyone know a fix? I contacted the developer but no action was taken.

lol.......given your name I doubt it's just to get older versions ... We don't support piracy here.....

Pls list your repos also as requested.

Do the sources really make a difference to whether or not it works?

Of course it does you use piracy repos they host piracy which provide paid tweaks for free. They can be out dated and cracked badly coursing you and your device issues. Remove hack your iPhone repo and anything you've got from it . Try paying for tweaks and supporting developers.

Which myrepospace do you have as there are thousands?

Read this to see why adding shady repo is a bad idea

Soooooo, I listened to everything you said :) I totally agree with you, I should have been more careful in what I downloaded.

I deleted every single Source and Package related to piracy. I also went and set up a PayPal account to buy every single package I use/used.

However, nothing changed, TypeRead still doesn't work for some contacts :'(

Any ideas Tilerone? I appreciate all your help and education on this, you have educated me to be more considerate of this stuff :)

(17 Feb '15, 03:39) AppCracker AppCracker's gravatar image

I could be mistaken here but it not only depends on whether you set your device up to send read receipts etc but also whether the other contact has such things enabled or disabled can even depend on type of phone they have.

I also did a bit of reading on this tweak ...seems there's a few bugs and dev hadn't sorted them ....also some conflicts. But I can't see any tweaks you have that would cause this.

Message the dev and ask them via cydia.

Not a fix but take a look at these tweaks which may help you .... Selectivereading and typingprivacy

(17 Feb '15, 04:05) Tilerone Tilerone's gravatar image

In my situation, both myself and the recipient has read receipts on. I know for a fact it depends solely on the phone number because when the recipient changed numbers (temporarily overseas), the tweak worked with the different overseas number and the same phone. I also know that when the recipient changed phones, it made no difference.

The developer definitely needs to fix these problems. I have already messaged the developer before, but nothing was done about it.

Is it possible to get a refund in Cydia?

Thank you for those suggestions. However, they both are no good because SelectiveReading doesn't send a read receipt at all, and TypingPrivacy has nothing to do with read receipts.

Ultimately, is there another way besides TypeRead to spoof ReadRecipt time? This would be the ultimate fix.

(17 Feb '15, 05:53) AppCracker AppCracker's gravatar image

The developer is being very unresponsive. Very angry that he asks $1 for a tweak that doesn't work properly, nor does he even want to help fix the problem.

Is anyone else able to assist me?

i just bought it and it worked fine, stay away from shady repos if you want your device and jailbreak to work right. this should be common sense by now.

(20 Feb '15, 06:40) WalterWhite WalterWhite's gravatar image

Does it work with every single person? I actually went out and bought this tweak, so it's got nothing to do with that?
