I tried this. But it broke the Sync with Google Calendar and Contacts. It asks for the password but fails to connect to google.

Vinod July 8, 2009, 2:01 pm

Never mind. A reboot fixed the issue 🙂

Daniel July 9, 2009, 1:09 am

Hey I tried this fix and it installed but push still doesn’t work. Any ideas? Thanks

greendave July 9, 2009, 2:31 am

Crashed the phone first time I tried to install.

Seemed to install correctly the 2nd time.

Deleted my aps.

Reinstalled them.

Lost WiFi settings.

Still no push notifications. Had my hopes up for a while there!

pancho July 9, 2009, 10:50 am

Elegant, but still not working.
Youtube works fine…but no push for me.

Angel-O July 9, 2009, 11:13 am

It works!
But I’ve already been banned at Beejive

iPhone Heat July 9, 2009, 1:21 pm

whoever is getting any error or could not get this working. Please reinstall the fix. and don’t forget to reboot your device after the fix.
Because for majority it’s working like a charm.

Aleck July 10, 2009, 2:02 am

After I rebooted, I was prompted to enter the password for sync again, but other than that, everything seems to work just fine. And push is working now.

stefan July 11, 2009, 4:19 pm

I install it and IM+ cannot connect. I can’t check if it works

Mikey July 15, 2009, 7:04 am

Anyone notice wierd Israeli push messages after installing this fix? I had to uninstall due to weird message from unknown sources in the middle of the night.

vins July 19, 2009, 12:03 am

It delete my wifi settings, and the paswords from the e-mails accounts, but, i put them in again, and its working fine, thanks

If cydia’s method doesn’t work – try this way:

1) Install app with push (Beejive, IM+ or other)
2) Download this files
3) Using iFunBox ( go to /private/var/Keychains and put all 6 files in this directory and close iFunBox
4) Then go to Cydia – install iFile and MobileTerminal
5) Then start iFile and go to /private/var/Keychains and change permissions of all 6 files and close iFile
6) Finaly go to MobileTerminal and follow this instructions:
– input: ‘su’
– Then will ask the password – write ‘alpine’, on the screen during a writing will occur nothing, so it is necessary.
– After that he should write that you under #root.
– Next you should input this line:
‘cd /private/var/Keychains/’
– And then start nimble input next line:
– In the same way start inject:

– Close terminal

7)After that you need to start your app with push notifications, in my case it is ‘Beejive IM 3.0 with push’, send message to a friend, close app and recieve push notification!

It works for me perfectly! Try it!

After trying both fixes (PushFix via Cydia and NTeller’s solution), push notification are working great only through wifi.
If i’m connected through EDGE (iphone v1), that’s not working anymore.

Has someone any idea ?

Michelle January 8, 2010, 9:53 pm

I’ve just added the source to my source list, but I can’t find Push Fix.
Does anyone have the same problems or have tips for me?

crk112 January 10, 2010, 4:58 am

It says I have to pay for PushFix.. is that the right one?

qwert January 13, 2010, 2:06 am

i cant seem to find “Push Fix” in my iphone..

any suggestions??

rubenalsina January 13, 2010, 10:52 am

After trying a million fixes, browse a million pages, restored my iphone 100 times I was lucky enough to find this page, push fix 2.0, the ONLY ONE, read again, the ONLY ONE that fixed my push notifications. IM, mBox mail, facebook, gmail, and other ones that I have.
Don’t waste your time guys with fixes that are not working, I tried the one for the dev team and is not working.
This are the best 5.99 that I spent on my jailbroken iphone

crk112 January 16, 2010, 9:38 pm

This works! Definitely worth the 5.99!

Ahmad January 28, 2010, 10:13 pm
