Siri problems on Jailbreak
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.

Re: Siri problems
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
Once you find them don't delete them just in case
change them to
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.
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

Re: Siri problems on Jailbreak
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.
