    I am jailbroken with evasion on 6.1.2. Siri will not launch apps. It keeps telling me I don't have an app by that name when I clearly do. I tried asking in different ways but it gives me the same answer. Is anyone having this same problem?

    Hmm I've just realised I have the same problem on my iphone. Funny thing is I don't have the problem on my ipad mini both jailbroken.

    I've had a read and found a few solutions but it seems the are not working for me. Siri is not opening apps in safe mode also which leads me to believe that it's not tweak related but something to do with installation plist.

    I will continue to investigate and let you know the outcome.

    Ok, I fixed my siri and can report she is now opening all of my apps no problem.

    First you need to go into iFile and find these 2 files
    /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.LaunchServices-045.csstore
    /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installation.plist

    Once you find them don't delete them just in case
    change them to
    /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.LaunchServices-045.csstore.bak
    /var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installation.plist.bak

    This basically renders them invisible, you can go and delete them later, always good to keep a backup

    Once you have changed the name back out to Springboard and do a full reboot.
    Upon reboot you will notice all your stock apps are there and your installed cydia apps but NO appstore apps.
    DONT PANIC

    Just sit back and chill as iOS will slowly rebuild your apps on the springboard. I have over 300 apps on mine so it took a couple of minutes.
    Once all your apps are showing give Siri a test.. Should work perfect.

    Then go back into iFile and removed the files you changed to .bak

    Done.. lemmie know how you go

    I did this, reset and let my apps rebuild but when I try to launch apps with siri, it causes the phone to reboot. Any other suggestions?

    I deleted Cydia apps one at a time and found that Assistant Extensions was causing the crash when I tried to launch an app

    Yes Assistant Extensions has not been updated for iPhone 5 / ios 6. The dev is currently working on it.

    So do you mean to delete the two .bak files or just rename them back to their original name?

    Are there any other fixes for this? I can't get iFile to download from Cydia, I've tried about three times. Siri on my phone can't play my music either and I don't have any tweaks installed that should affect Siri.

    you can install a program on your computer called iFunBox and edit the files on your desktop..

    Just delete the .bak files once your apps have reloaded on springboard as ios has made new ones.

    Interesting, I wonder if this is a 6.1.2 issue? I'm jailbroken on 6.1 and Siri launches apps perfectly for me. But thanks for reminding me to use it more often!

    Hey i want to do this but i was informed that appsync must be removed to be successfully and what about all of my folders and such, as i use FolderEnhancer

    Don't know about that with Appsync there is a no piracy policy here on imore. So I guess maybe stop pirating and you won't have as much trouble.
