    Okay, I'm driving myself nuts and I know it's a quick fix. None of my applications I've installed since jailbreaking remember their settings. The Stocks application, for example, will forget the symbols I added after I restart the application... same for Weather and everything else. Could someone tell me what I need to do or toss me a link to a how to? Thanks!

    Could it be a permissions problem with your ~/Library/Preferences/ folder?

    /private/var/root/Library/Preferences is set with 755. It only contains one .plist file for AcceleroLog with 'mobile' as the owner.

    I had the same issue but found a solution. SSH and use terminal and enter this

    chown -R mobile:mobile /var/mobile/Library/Preferences
