Weather and Clock don't save Prefs?

    I installed the iPhone apps following these steps:

    * Jailbreak with iLIberty 1.2.1.78, choose only Jailbreak and Installer option
    * Add Source repo.ispazio.net
    * Install app Tweaks (1.1.4)\1.1.4 iPod Full Features

    So now I have all the iPhone apps and Wiggly Icons and stuff.

    Everything is great except for the Weather.app and Clock.app apps, where they always default to Cupertino and they never save any other location. Does anyone know this problem, and/or have a fix for it?

    Thanks

    I have almost the same problem except it's only weather.app that keeps defaulting to Cupertino. Clock.app is fine. Been trying to find a solution without much success. Think it might have something to do with "set permissions to 755" (or 777 I'm not sure what the difference is).

    I have the same problem with the weather.app. I cannot help with that but I can help with the 755 and the 777 difference question.
    Each number represent permissions for a file.
    I like to explain by example:

    I run the ls -l command, this means I ask the OS for the "long" description of the file.

    # ls -l /Applications/Weather.app/fog.png
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 root admin 11847 Dec 12 13:34 /Applications/Weather.app/fog.png

    As a response I got the files attrubutes marked as BOLD RED
    This string is devided into four parts:
    filetype | user | group | other
    - | rw- | rw- | r--

    filetype
    It specifies the type of object we requested information for. Example it can be a directory or a file. Directory is specified as "d" and file as "-"
    It is not controlled by chmod command so you can disregard it when considering the 777/755 issue

    user
    specifies the actions the user that owns the file can take

    group
    Specifies the actions that users from the owners group can take

    other
    everyone else

    There are three types of permissions, read, write and execute
    each group has these permssions in the following format:
    rwx

    read
    specifies if you can read the file
    "-" means no
    "r" means read allowed

    write
    specifies if you can write to the file
    "-" means no
    "w" means write allowed

    execute
    specifies if you can execute the file(similar to .exe in windows)
    "-" means no
    "x" means execute allowed

    So how do I get from the 755 to rwx format?
    each number represents a mask in binary format, IE:
    000 0 ---
    001 1 --x
    010 2 -w-
    011 3 -wx
    100 4 r--
    101 5 r-x
    110 6 rw-
    111 7 rwx

    This means that 755 is rwxr-xr-x
    user can read,write,execute
    group can read andexecute
    other can read and execute

    777 is rwxrwxrwx
    anyone has permission to read/write/execute.

    if you are still awake at this stage...

    I hope it helped you.

    That actually happened to me, but I never noticed because I live in Cupertino
