Jailbreak your iPhone

Push Doctor : Free Push Fix for hacktivated iPhone’s


app-pushAnethema and CmdShft has rolled out the Push Doctor that officially fixes the push notification issue on hacktivated iPhone by providing each iPhone device with an unique certificate. Unlike PushFix [$ 5.99], Push Doctor is totally free of charge and available for download on NERV repo. If you remember your truly iHackintosh web app is also available on same repo [Check Here]

Following are the  instructions on how to fix push notifications on your jailbroken iPhone.

Step One : Press to launch Cydia from your SpringBoard.
Step Two : Press to select the Manage tab at the bottom of the screen.
Step Three : Press the large Sources button.
Step Four : Press the Edit button at the top right of the screen.
Step Five : Press the Add button at the top left of the screen.
Step Six : Enter β€œ http://www.cmdshft.ipwn.me/apt/ ” as the new source address and tap the Add Source button.
Step Seven : Once the source has been successfully added press the large Return to Cydia button.
Step Eight : Press the Done button to exit Edit mode.
Step Nine : Press to select the newly added NERV repository.
Step Ten : Press to choose Push Doctor from the list of Packages
Step Eleven : Press the Install button at the top right of the screen.
Step Twelve : Then press the Confirm button to beginning installation
Note : Once rebooted verify that YouTube works. If not try reinstalling the patch. You may  also need to remove then reinstall all your applications which use Push Notifications before they will work.


Update via CmdShft : If you’re having an issue with installing Push Doctor and you cannot get push working, it’s because the server it’s getting your unique cert from is actually out of certs. The demand is very high apparently, and @anethema is now generating 1 unique cert per minute to put on the server. Try every few hours, eventually it will work. Any errors just means the same that it cannot find a unique cert. Just "reinstall" the package later or the next day.

    PushDoctor workes like a charm, just took me a couple of install tries and BANG!!! it worked like toxic waste on plants.

    Thanks guys for getting this out to the masses.

    Worked great, no need to reinstall the applications to get push notifications. Loved it, after using the iphone for almost a year without push notifications.

    Thanks! Initially it used to say “Indicated repository could not be found. this could be because you are trying to add a legacy installer repository.” and whenever i tried to add the source.

    but I kept on trying to add the source on different times of the day and finally was able to add teh source and then I tried downloading push doctor, after so many failed attempts it was finally installed.

    My youtube started to work after this (after ios 4.2, you tube wsnt working), I reinstalled teh apps liek facebook, pingchat etc after installing push doctor, but i am not getting any push msgs yet πŸ™

    Can confirm this works as stated on 3G 16GB White 3.1.2 (7D11) Carrier 5.0 Model MB705LL Firmware 05.11.07. NOTE: Be sure to only get this from above repo. The one on sinfuliphone is crap and does not work! No need to reinstall apps, just launch and accept push options.

    @Crime: I installed this on the 4.0 3GS firmware and it seems to be working properly.

    hi guys i am from india. The above mentioned tips worked for me absolutely fine except for my wifi did not connect to my router. So simply resetting my Network Setting fixed that too……….. So I am all set now………… Thanks to the team………. cheers!!!

  35. jorge May 12, 2010 Reply

    it works for me however whenever i have my mms activated push stops working but when i have the settings deleted it works again…y is this happening??? please help

  36. iMan May 11, 2010 Reply

    If you get the “connect to iTunes”-message, just reboot your phone and push works again.

    It would be nice ofcourse if Push Doctor would fix push permanently, without the need to reboot once or twice a day…

    SAME HERE! its weird!

  38. Make May 10, 2010 Reply

    Working fine! ..except when Wi-Fi is enabled. As soon as I turn Wi-Fi off, push notifications jump on to screen. Is this a feature of push in general, or a bug in Push doctor?

  39. Rodrigo Cunha May 8, 2010 Reply

    Works on me. Thanks! \o/

  40. zomgrades May 3, 2010 Reply

    NOTE: Push will not work over Wi-Fi, it only does over EDGE or other similar connections.

    Try these steps if push notifications still don’t work with EDGE.

    1) Uninstall any previous PushFix applications. To be more safe, do a restore.

    2) Install Push Doctor. If you get an error while installing, try again in few hours.

    3) Check if YouTube works, if not, reinstall Push Doctor.

    4) Reinstall all applications that use push notifications.

    Try the application called ‘iPusher’ for testing.

    I’ve got a 2g iphone and push is working for me only over the GSM network. When wifi is enabled push doesn’t work. It’s not a network problem, since I tried my phone out on a friends wifi network and got the same behavior. He has a 3g iphone and after push doctor was installed, push is working for him flawlessly.

    Any thoughts on why wifi would be not working for me? Anyone have push working on a 2g iphone?
