    Just to add that if some1 does not want to remove the push suppoted applications before installing “Push Fix” from cydia, alternatively u can just “TURN OFF” the push notification by going into the specific application settings, and then install “Push Fix”

    Works perfect. For guys that complains it isn't working..
    1.Go thro' each of your apps and make sure they dont' have Push ON and turn'em off.
    2. After the reboot, reset your wifi settings. goto an other website and make sure your wifi is working. Your mail setting pwd. might also have been reset. check and makesure of it too.
    3. Then try Youtube. it works fine.

  • shres

    It worked for me at the second try.
    The first time, my Wi-fi got worse and did not even detect any networks.
    Then I uninstalled the "Push Fix" package and re-installed it.
    Works perfect now.

    One thing I found different on this instruction is the part that it tells us to add source through "more package source" whereas other website I have seen tells us to add it through "manage" function on cydia. I don't know if this is suppose make a difference but it did to me ๐Ÿ™‚


  • alamin

    How long does it take to download the packages and update the sources? My phone has been on the same screen for like 15 mins. Please let me know.

    • It shouldn't take more than 5 mins. Try again.

  • Tino

    Hi everybody,
    I had the same problem, but I used a simpler solution that works. Is there anyone that could tell me if there is anything wrong and why my way is not good enough? Here is what I did: from the various apps listed in “GOOGLE” (iPhone) chose YOUTUBE, saved it “ADD TO HOME SCREEN” …that’s it!
    Thanks for any comments.

    • MG

      This is what I did too (before I read the Cydia fix) but, now I have two Youtube Apps. That bugs me a bit.

  • J

    WORKS. iOS 4.0

  • Joe

    Thanks for the clear instructions and pictures! Those really helped ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Alex

    Thanks! it works now!


  • Tony

    Beautiful tip , thank a lot :-)))

  • MizLola

    Thanks a bunch! I too had to reset my wireless and reinstall ultrasn0w. No biggee… I’m good now. You ROCK!

  • Eduardo21

    I can't seem to install iphone modding. Cydia gets stuck saying Downloading package! Please Help!!

    • anton

      check if you have rupertGee(in cydia), remove it, and try again

  • kapilkapil

    I can’t seem to install iphone modding. Cydia gets stuck saying Running and Downloading Release but not completing from last 2 hour. Please Please Help!!

  • Legacy

    thanks. It works!

  • Johnny1

    Worked for me. Thank you very much. Before, I even had trouble with YouTube through Safari. This fixed the problem. Two thumbs up!!!

  • Leo

    Awsome. Thanks for help

  • chigo58

    worked like a charm – iphone 3g w/ ultrasnow – reboot phone, disable push and renable the option in apps that support Push Notifications, reneter WiFi passwords and you're all set.. TY

  • Myzt-D

    thanx a bunch…followed step-by-step instructions and the "can not connect to youtube" is now a thing in the past ๐Ÿ˜€

  • TOM

    HELP! I applied this, it worked great but…one should know that you will have to REDO all your mail passwords, your wireless network passwords, etc.

    BUT…now I keep getting messages from AIM FREE and YAHOO IM from random people when I'm not even logged into AIM or YAHOO or the program is not running. I get like 4 an hour and it's notifying me on the screen. When I click REPLY it starts AIM or Yahoo but there is no message waiting. In fact, I'm not even logged into either of those services. It looks like I'm getting conversations of others and it's quite annoying!

    I've uninstalled and reinstalled these apps, but it still happens.


  • Bisi

    Thanks, it worked for me. I had iPhone 2G on 3.0 and all of a sudden my youtube started throwing this error. When I went to Cydia, it started giving the error 'sub-process bzip2 returned an error code 2'. It still gave when I tried to install IPhoneModding and then Push Fix. But then I went ahead and ignored all the messages. After installing these, my wifi settings were gone. I just rest my wifi settings and then you tube started working again.
    Thanks for this solution. However I didnt know why it stopped working in the first place!

  • rocky

    Thanks a lot it worked smooooothly ..

  • Jeremy

    I searched for Push Fix in Cydia and Cydia isn't finding it. WTF?

  • Michelle

    HELP!! my BF is having this problem and his phone is jailbroken for another company instead of AT&T…will he have to RE-jailbreak it after doing this?

  • Michelle

    my BF has this problem…but she wants to know that if her phone is already jailbroken for another carrier instead of AT&T, will she have to RE-jailbreak it after doing this??
    P.S. she has the very first iPhone

    • Michelle

      also…does she have to reboot it?

  • Michael

    Ok so I have the very first iPhone and did EXACTLY as shown here and it processed BUT at the end of installing Push Fix it says "Reboot Device" iPhone is jailbroken for T-Mobile….if I reboot it I'll have to Re-jailbreak it right??

  • Amona

    Thanks a lot bro… Awesome job…

  • DRO


    running iphone 3G 4.0OS

  • rebecca

    thanks so much – worked great. i just turned off all the push notifications (ultimately just email and facebook and general notifications). phone rebooted as part of the process and then i had to reenter wifi and email passwords and everything is perfect.

    (jailbroken / 3.1.3 / 2g)

  • Gary

    I have been fighting this dang message for a week and finally ran across this post. I’m sure happy people know what the heck they are doing cuz i don’t. Thanks for the great tutorial, it worked, and I never deleted my push apps, just made sure they were all off.

  • madrich

    Thanks this also works for 3.1.1. Thx again!

  • nash

  • Clov

    Worked for me! Running a cracked 1st generation iPhone with firmware v 3.1.3. Didn't concern myself with the push notifications. This fix reset some of my settings, like wifi passwords and the phone passcode lock, so put your phone through its paces to make sure it's still setup the way you like.

  • new iphone user

    I first tried push fix using another url but it didn't work. Followed these steps above and got You Tube working on my iphone 2g 3.1.3. Thanks a lot!!!!!

  • pepelux

    does it work for MiTube, cause im still getting the “cannot connect to youtube” message

    • I don't know, I don't use MiTube. Will try out later.

  • Roman

    This worked for me 100% and it was so easy. Thank You very much.

  • Linda

    I just followed these instructions and now my phone will not connect to wifi. It is possible the two are unrelated, but my other devices can connect to my router and the signal is good. I am not sure how to fix this on my phone since I can't connect it to anything to fix it. It is a jailbroken 1st gen phone running OS 3.0.

    When I first boot up the phone, I see a check mark by my network, but it disappears immediately. Then, when I select it to connect, I get the message "Unable to join the network "(name)" " Of course all the other networks nearby are password protected.

    The first time this happened I was prompted to enter my password and did so. It was unable to connect then, and ever since I am getting that same message but have not been prompted to enter my password since.

    Of course I will look into this on my own, but has this happened to anyone else? Any ideas?

    (I really would prefer not to re-jailbreak)

    • Yes it has even happened to me once, I just "Forget this Network" button and re-enter my wi-fi password (re-setting also if you have specific settings on iPhone's wi-fi configuration).

      • Linda

        Thank you! I wound up just resetting my network settings and that did the trick, but I think your way is simpler. I tried to come back and post a followup comment, but couldn't find my comment for some reason.

  • smtsth

    this does not work on my iphone 3gs 32 gb ios 4.3, bb 6.15.

  • Evachennn

    I had the same problem and could not find Push Fix in Cydia, nor could I even install iPhonemodding for whatever reason ๐Ÿ™ any help?

  • Jim

    Offline Deb Pack.

    Download what you need,
    Install via : IfunBox, just copy paste into CYDIA directory ( your iphone should been jailbroken FIRST)

  • jon

    i have an iphone 2g on 3.1.3
    i followed the steps above, except deleting push notification apps.
    rebooted the device, opened youtube, then asked for the wifi password, seemed to connect to wif but came up with 'cannot connect to you tube' again.
    i again went on to reinstall push fix, rebooted the device, and the wifi will not connect, its greyed out in the settings app with no option to connect. i had to delete push fix, and reboot to make wi fi work.
    not sure whats going on, i do have yourtube itergrated in youtube. and i didnt delete push apps, would that be the problem? any ideas?

    • Just disable the push notifications, no need to uninstall.

      • JON

        still not working hmph!
        are there any other external 'youtube' apps like mxtube available on cydia, do you know

        • rteng

          have you found a solution to 2G @3.1.3? I am having the same issue and I tried push fix and it doesn't seem to fix Youtube. I don't have a similar WiFi issue, however.

  • Jon

    Turned off notifications, wifi now works but still no YouTube, may be something to do with dtunes being installed? I’ll try deleting that…

  • Iphone

    Worked like a charm ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks sooooooo much……….

  • Merlinoboy

    When I choose More Packages Sources, it says:
    Unable to Load
    (The certificate for this server is invalid. You might be connecting to a server that is pretending to be "" which could put your confidential information at risk.)

    How can I get rid of this?

    • Jim

      You probably have the iPhone's clock set to the wrong date/time. This will hose up security certificates.

      Mod worked for me as well, Thanks!

  • Thanks Jim, it worked!

  • squarebomb

    Do you think this is connected to my disappeared FaceTime? My phone reset itself and I lost all my email and push settings. I also lost my youtube connection and just found out my FaceTime is also gone. When I go to settings, FaceTime slider is on but it's waiting for activation. My phone is almost a year old and has been working perfectly until now. Thanks.
